Celebrate this festive season in paradise...

Wake up on Christmas Day to the sun rising over the azure waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the white sand glowing and a relaxing day of Christmas festivities ahead. The multi-award winning Lizard Island is Australia’s northernmost resort, 240km north of Cairns and 27km off the coast near Cape Flattery, right on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, fringed with colourful coral reefs and postcard perfect beaches.

Each one of the 40 villas on Lizard Island is elegant and spacious, with either ocean or beach views.

Lizard Island is pleased to be able to offer the following tantalising festive activities to enjoy this coming holiday season:

25th December - Christmas Day Dinner
Come and celebrate this special day with a Seafood Christmas Buffet & BBQ with freshly shucked oysters served from the Oyster Bar, a selection of local seafood, Black Angus Beef fi llet, chicken fi llet, followed by Australian cheeses and tropical fruits. Ospreys Restaurant is the idyllic setting to take full advantage of the views along the seascape whilst enjoying the Christmas festivities.

31st December – New Year’s Eve
As the sun sets on another year and heralds the start of a new one, toast each other’s good fortunes with Sunset Drinks on the beach, looking out over the Great Barrier Reef. The menu features Yellowfi n tuna tartare, North Queensland crayfi sh ravioli, pan roasted lamb rack and a selection of delectable desserts.

Welcome the New Year with midnight Champagne toasts whilst enjoying contemporary lounge music from a live band.

Note: menus are subject to change without notice at any time.

Lizard Island Resort is Paradise on the Great Barrier Reef!!

Located within a pristine snorkelling and diving environment 1 hour flying time from Cairns. If you have limited time and want to experience the best of Australia's Great Barrier Reef go to Lizard Island. 

There is brilliant snorkelling from the island and also access to the famous Cod Hole which is home to an extraordinary variety of beautiful, many, and varied tropical fish.  This is a daytrip available from the resort at an additional cost. 

The Blue Lagoon is also a brilliant spot for kite surfing enthusiasts.  We are told that the wind here is consistently great for kite surfers.  It certainly was a perfect time to visit in late September, early October.

If you are planning to visit the Rainforest Habitat then I highly recommend timing it for Breakfast with the Birds. This is an excellent half day activity, which provides a different concept from the usual zoo visits; you can literally dine whilst the birds fly freely around you!

Breakfast is a hearty affair; choose from your basic cereals and toast, to a full cooked breakfast - with eggs how you like, fresh pastries, plus a multitude of tropical fruits. Ever tried star apple before?

The birds provide the most entertainment while you dine, it's the perfect opportunity for you to sit back and watch in awe as the black cockatoos come swooping past, and see all the colours up close of the Rainbow Lorikeets. Just watch out for the cheeky ones who might want to steal a sausage or a sip of your juice when you're not looking!

After breakfast you are welcome to wander around the park or join in on any of the wildlife presentations throughout the day. Purchase a bag of kangaroo & duck food for only $2 and you will have the biggest fan club of ducks following you around, plus the kangaroos and wallabies will be your best friend!

There are two emus in the park, one of them wanders round freely, however I think he had spent too much time with the ducks as he decided to hop in for a swim too!

Inside the Wetlands Habitat look carefully as there are so many birds up high amongst the trees and down low next to the footpaths, some are so bright and colourful with patterns I had never seen before. The Kookuburras made their presence known as did the cassowaries that patrolled their turf right up close to the edge of their enclosure.

The koalas were gorgeous as ever, and of course sleeping!!!

The Rainforest Habitat is one of my favourite wildlife parks to visit up here as you can surround yourself with the wildlife and not feel like you are viewing everything through the bars of a cage. It is very educational for children of all ages and accessible to all.

Get your tickets validated on your way out and you can come back anytime for the next three days free of charge, now that’s a bonus!

Now this is what holidays are made of! None of this self catering business, I want to relax and do completely nothing...and you can do just that at the Sheraton Mirage.

 

My one night stay in a Deluxe Lagoon Room was heaven. Port Douglas has got that instant tropical relaxed vibe to it, and even just heading up there for a day you feel like you have stepped into holiday mode.

 

My room wasn't quite ready on arrival so I wandered down to one of the many lagoon pools, made myself comfortable on a sun lounge and ordered an ice coffee which was brought over to me...ahh bliss! When you go on holidays you want to relax and not have to lift a finger and you can certainly do that here.

 

Resort style accommodation is a great way to go if you want access to all facilities at your fingertips. There are 3 resort restaurants, plus lounge bar and pool bar serving food throughout the day. Bike hire is available and very popular in Port Douglas to get around. It makes a nice change from always having to drive from A to B and you get to see so much more.

You can wander through the resort straight onto Four Mile Beach, and if you are feeling energetic it is approx a 30 minute walk along the beach to Macrossan Street. You can then hop on one of the many shuttle buses back to the resort; they run every 30 minutes throughout the day until late.

 

The resort is fantastic for families as not only are there many lagoon pools to choose from, there is also a games room, kids club and the beach is right on your doorstep.

 

The Deluxe Lagoon Room I stayed in was very spacious featuring 2 double beds. This is a good option for families as with 2 double beds you can sleep up to 2 adults and 2 children.

The balcony is internal, however you can open the windows and shutters right up and enjoy the view. The corner bath tub was perfect to wind down after a day out in the sun, perfect when accompanied by a glass of champagne! Even though there are no ocean views, from your room you can still hear the relaxing sound of ocean. The Deluxe Garden Room is identical to the lagoon room; however they overlook the beautiful landscaped gardens, ponds and some of the smaller pools.

 

Breakfast was to die for, no wonder there is a later check out time of 11am, you need this extra time to get through all the options...now where do I start?...fruit salad, Bircher muesli, a European breakfast, pastries or shall I skip straight to the hot food and have tailor made eggs or an omelette?

 

There was enough time in the morning for another swim before check out, so I didn't feel so guilty about my four courses for breakfast!

 

If you need a break away either for couples on honeymoon or a family holiday the Sheraton Mirage is definitely the place to go to make the most of your Port Douglas holiday.
