Cruises to Willis Island

About Willis Island

Willis Island lies beyond the Great Barrier Reef and is one of Australia's three southernmost islands -- the only one of which that is actually inhabited. However, it is not a residential island. It is inhabited by a weather station. Cruise ships sail by the island while an onboard guide points out notable sights, which may include the island's flora and fauna.

Why go to Willis Island?

Pros:

Willis Island is home to a great number and variety of sea creatures, wildlife and interesting plants

The island is a scenic cruising port, so you won't actually be able to disembark your cruise ship here

Bottom Line:

Willis Island is an off-the-beaten path locale, with a gorgeous landscape excellent for photo ops
