Port Douglas Tourism News

Monday, May 30, 2011

What a wonderful time of year to be visiting Port Douglas! Visitors to our region are being thrilled with amazing encounters with these fabulous
creatures.  Passengers on board Poseidon are spending time in the water with Dwarf Minke Whales.  A record 14,000 Humpback Whales are heading up the coast this year to breed and some boats have spotted small herds already.

The Minke's visit boats during stationary time at the mooring sites.  Passengers are having the opportunity to jump in and
swim with the Minke's, having close up, personal encounters.  The Minke's will stay around this region until the end of September.

As the whale season kicks in we expect to see Pods of Humpback Whales on the journey to and from Agincourt Reefs.  Last year we were stopping to watch pods of up to 5 whales at a time.  Whales obviously enjoy these encounters as they display playful acts of tail slapping and breaching.

If you have not been to the reef, this is the time to get out there and see these animals while the weather is great with clear water and
lots of marine activity.

Inspire the Experience!

Lizard Island – Australia’s most northerly island resort on the Great Barrier Reef has undergone a soft refurbishment to reflect the beauty and surroundings of its location.

The refurbishment, completed by interior architects Pike Withers, sees a fresh look for the Lodge Bar and Osprey.s Restaurant, plus new furnishings for the Anchor Bay Suites and Sunset Point Villas.

The refurbishment is aimed at significantly improving the guest experience and reflecting the beauty of Lizard Island.s location, a rugged yet beautiful 1,000-hectare island sitting right on the Great Barrier Reef, fringed with colourful coral reefs.

The Lodge Bar and lounge have been transformed with the introduction of a brighter and more modern palette to recapture the crisp and vibrant atmosphere, creating relaxed yet sophisticated interiors. Natural materials such as stone and timber are used throughout to create warmth and character, set against a backdrop of clean white with splashes of colour.

Osprey.s Restaurant has been fitted out with a series of comfortable banquettes in vibrant blue fabrics for more relaxed dining while looking out over the reef, while a blue, white and aqua feature tile has been introduced to the rear wall. The Lodge Bar has also been enhanced with new modern furniture and low height credenzas and bookshelves.

Lizard Island.s guest rooms have also been upgraded with the Sunset Point Villas and the Anchor Bay Suites refurbished with new furniture and striking colour palettes. Set in a broad sweeping arc along Anchor Bay, within easy reach of Osprey.s Restaurant and the Lodge Bar, the Anchor Bay Suites deliver breathtaking views and a pathway down to the beach.

A key feature of the interior design is the seamless blend of indoors and out, thanks to an elegant and spacious open plan, with large verandah and daybed. The Anchor Bay Suites have been re-furbished with soft aqua, turquoise and coral colour tones, with the daybeds and armchairs re-upholstered in strong marine colours. New furniture has been introduced, with coffee tables and floor rugs, and re-upholstered lounges.

The Sunset Point Villas are set high on Sunset Ridge amidst native eucalypt trees and bushland, with filtered sea views over Anchor Bay or Sunset Beach. Offering easy access to a string of secluded beaches, each villa has a private deck with comfortable Australian timber squatter chairs and a hammock.

The Sunset Point Villas have been enhanced with big deep built-in banquettes for guests to lounge in their rooms, and a warmer colour palette of palm greens and light sandy colours, reflecting the barefoot elegance of these rooms. American oak veneer is used throughout to introduce some warmth, while new Spanish Crema Maroc stone is used in the bathrooms, with new showers and vanities.

Robyn Pontynen, General Manager of Lizard Island, said: “This has been a significant project for us and we are delighted with the end result. Lizard Island now has a fresh, new look that accurately reflects the beauty of its surroundings here on the Great Barrier Reef.”

Award winning and a constant favourite in the world.s „best. lists, Lizard Island is located right on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef. An idyllic retreat fringed with pristine coral reefs, crystal clear waters and 24 powdery white beaches, it offers the postcard perfect setting for an Australian island holiday.

Lizard Island boasts unrivalled dive sites and snorkelling with myriad corals, fish, clams and sharks to entertain. Divers can mix with green sea turtles and giant clownfish, and snorkellers are rewarded for little effort with 100-year-old giant clam gardens just moments from Lizard.s beaches.

Offering guests exceptional fresh gourmet cuisine from new Executive Chef Mark Jensen, guests can enjoy a candlelit dinner on the verandah of Osprey.s Restaurant overlooking the beach or a more intimate private dining experience – sand under foot, stars up above with a 7-course degustation menu on the beach.
