Lizard Island Research StationEdit



We aim to be a world-leading supplier of on-reef facilities for coral reef research and education. To achieve this, we:Edit

  • Value our customers and their work, and rate service to them as the highest priority
  • Maintain the local ecosystem in excellent condition by careful management of the Station's marine and land-based activities, and by close liaison with reef management authorities
  • Continually improve and upgrade facilities.


Lizard Island is situated in the northern portion of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, 270 km north of Cairns, Queensland (14°40'S 145°28'E). It is a high granite island about 7 square kilometres in size.


Volunteers can assist at the Lizard Island Research Station in one of two ways: as a Station Volunteer or as a Research Volunteer.

  1. You can join the Station Volunteer Program and assist with maintenance. This program is organised by the Research Station. The Station does not offer any research internships. More Info About the Station Volunteer Program
  2. Highly qualified divers (divemasters or instructors) can register as Research Volunteers at Lizard Island Research Station. The Research Station maintains the register but any arrangements are made directly between researchers and Research Volunteers. More Info About Becoming a Research Volunteer.
