COVID-19 Health and Safety Management Update

A COVID Safe Health Management Plan has been implemented at Wilson Island in line with the Queensland Government regulations. The changes associated with this management plan will be in place for the foreseeable future. The COVID Safe protocols will be constantly reviewed and may change without notice to keep in line with QLD Government and WHO regulations.

As recommended by the Australian Government Department of Health we suggest downloading the COVIDSafe App prior to travel.

We request that guests continue to observe government required social distancing, hygiene practises and travel restrictions. If you are feeling unwell, please do not travel to Wilson Island and contact our reservations team to postpone your holiday.


Wilson Island reserves the right to refuse travel to any guest who has recently been in a QLD Government declared hotspot or who in anyway indicates a risk of COVID-19 transmission.



Following the latest Queensland Government directive, from 14 April 2022 guests will not be required to be fully vaccinated to stay at Wilson Island.

Additional hand sanitising stations will be accessible for guests and staff as well as common areas frequently cleaned and sanitised.


Guest numbers will be restricted to meet guidelines with hand sanitiser available for guest use onboard. The Heron Islander is cleaned several times per day including before, after and during each voyage.

Please be assured that we follow strict hygiene regulations to ensure our equipment is disinfected, clean and safe at all times.

Dining options may vary to keep inline with COVID Safe requirements.

The housekeeping department on takes the health and safety of our guests very seriously. Some highlights of their policies and procedures include:
- Laundry disinfecting is achieved through thermal and chemical processes.

- Products used for cleaning and personal hygiene are in line with the World Health Organisation standards and recommendations.
- Frequent disinfecting of common areas and high touch surfaces
Hand sanitising stations will be available throughout the property. The COVID Safe Checklist has been completed with our onsite staff also completing government recognised COVID Safe training.
