Lizard Island – Arrive in Australia for the Scenery of Tropical Queensland
Your flight will land at Cairns Airport, located near Australia’s eastern seaboard. Restaurants open up along the Esplanade to frame the coastline to the marina as yachts, fishing boats, and sailboats wade in the quiet wake of the Pacific Ocean and beckon you. But before you take it all in, you will board your scenic flight from the Cairns Airport to Lizard Island, located nearly 150 miles north of the city, and 16 miles off the coast.
Your pilot will point to the crystalline turquoise water below and the coral reef will add an extra layer of luster to the expansive ocean as its visible body stretches as far as the eye can see beneath the seemingly motionless water. Your flight will land on Lizard Island, part of the Lizard Island National Park which encompasses more than 2,500 acres of protected area. Your resort edges the powder-white sand of numerous beaches, and the sweet and briny scent of the sea will drift upwards from the water. Tropical plants grow outside of your elegant suite where the two of you have found a secluded paradise with the beauty of the land and sea on your doorstep.
