Group Events

Heron Island offers terrific opportunities for organizations and businesses keen on team building.

What could be a better way to build team morale than to head out on a private chartered fishing trip on the Great Barrier Reef? It’s a great way to get staff interacting and having fun on the water. Private snorkel boat charters are also very popular and include Marine Centre staff to guide the snorkeling so your team members will know where to look to find the reef’s best sights.

Private sunset cruises with wine and cheese are a relaxing way for smaller groups to end the day.  Meanwhile, larger groups are well-catered for with sunset drinks under the jetty’s pavilion. This is one of the island’s best sunset-watching positions.

Most activities offered by Heron Island can be customized for groups, including the informative reef walks, where teams are encouraged to don reef-walking shoes to slowly walk to the outer edge of the reef during low tide. Everyone keeps an eye out and it can become a little competitive as people vie to be the first to spot a ray or small shark. Bird walks, island walks and walks to the island’s Research Centre can also be customized specifically for visiting groups.

Have a group of 12? Why not visit your own private island. Wilson Island is only a 45min boat ride away. Day trips are offered on selected days.
