Lady Elliot Island is located at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef. The Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort is one of 3 island resorts on the Great Barrier Reef and is located within the highest possible protection zone of the Marine Park.     Established in 1984 using prefabricated buildings, the eco resort has undergone a series of transformations to improve the visitor experience while at the same time reducing its energy usage.
