Great Barrier Reef Island & Location

A tiny coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef, Wilson Island is located just above The Tropic of Capricorn, approximately 72 kilometres off the Queensland Coast, northeast of Gladstone and 15 kilometres from nearby Heron Island. Gladstone is 534 kilometres north of Brisbane, and 1183 kilometres south of Cairns, Queensland.

Getting to Wilson Island is very easy, with a short boat transfer from Gladstone to Heron Island and then a speedboat over open water to land barefoot on the beach. Read more about getting here.
