Info Please - Heron Island before Cruise

Recommended Posts



We're thinking of going to Heron Island for a few days prior to boarding our cruise out of Sydney in Jan 2008. Does anyone have any advice about this destination? Is it worth the price? What should we expect for weather in January? Does it cool down at night? I know you can't give names but is there a better way to book (or less expensive) than the obvious ones? What about flights from Sydney to Gladstone. Which airlines? Does any airline fly direct?


Anything you could tell me would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Hello Livetocruise 99,,

You would need to fly to Gladstone out of Brisbane and then transfer to a small aircraft. Definitely no direct flights to Heron out of Sydney. The weather could be rough if there is an early cyclone in the area and it is not at all cold...rather hot and humid (overnight mins. would be around 24C). Check out Qantas airlink flights. To visit Heron alone (unless you have specific reasons to go there) would seem "under par "as the Great Barrier Reef is a far better option. Hope this helps.
