Haggerstone Island - Great Barrier Reef
Cast away in the remote regions of Tropical North Queensland, Haggerstone Island turns the notion of paradise into reality. 600kms north of Cairns, adjacent to the virtually uninhabited coast, near the tip of Cape York, the island lies in a region where mans footprint barely exists, surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef.
To come to Haggerstone you must first fly from Cairns, North Queensland where we organise a twin engine, six seat private charter to neighboring Hicks Island.
The two hour flight travels up the largely uninhabited mainland, covered with virgin rainforest, and over an aquamarine sea dotted with lime green reefs that look like giant lily pads.
Once here your world is made up of relaxing days, filled with the activities nature intended. Snorkelling, sunbaking, fishing and exploring the wonders of a pristine tropical wilderness - with a few creature comforts. The pace is slow and the island is private and casual.
The cuisine is all fresh, grown and caught from our immediate environment. Lunch may be of oysters steamed in the shell with sliced ginger and lemon grass or squid simmered quickly in sea water and then placed on a bed of rocket and drizzled with lime juice, olive oil and crushed garlic or a whole lobster thrown in the coals and served with lime and crushed pepper.
The island is never crowded and can be booked for 10 people exclusively. Children warm to the escape from deadlines, uniforms, television and parental boundaries. They can live out the fantasy Robinson Crusoe.
Visitors to the island come from all points of the globe. They come to experience adventure, seclusion and the unique island holiday that is Haggerstone.
