The true Barrier Reef island swim, snorkel, dive experience is within easy reach. The two Ladies share a common beauty as gems of the southern reef World Heritage Marine Park, offering encounters with stunning coral, fish, manta rays, turtles, whales in season, and bird life. Connection to Lady Elliot Island, either for a day or stay at its eco-resort, is by air from Bundaberg. Lady Musgrave Island day trips are by fast ferry from Bundaberg or, further north, Seventeen Seventy. There is an island camp site but no resort.
