Wilson Island Dreaming of an escape where you can relax, recharge and unwind? A secluded coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef may be just what you are looking for. Wilson Island is the ultimate island castaway experience, offering peace and tranquillity in a setting of unrivalled natural beauty. Unquestionably one of the most idyllic places on the Great Barrier Reef, its pristine waters host an unimaginable variety of marine life. This adult-only, romantic, private hideaway is just off the coast of Gladstone, Queensland and a 25-minute boat ride from world-renowned Heron Island. At Wilson Island, you can book your own private, designer inspired tent or you can reserve the entire island, exclusively to yourself. Covering just over five acres, Wilson Island boasts nine permanent Reef Safari Tents, offering seclusion in a setting of unrivalled natural beauty - playing host to just 18 guests at any one time. Guests can relax and rejuvenate in privacy and seclusion. With no phones or television, the soundtrack for your getaway is the lapping of ocean waves, the rustle of the leaves in the breeze and the melody of neighbouring birds. Days are spent relaxing in a hammock, lounging on the beach, exploring the island and snorkelling with the abundant marine life that call Wilson Island home. With such a secluded, discreet and disconnected island there is only one way you can get to Wilson Island and this requires a short stopover (or perhaps a combined extended stay) at the world-famous Heron Island as part of your passage to paradise.
