Couran Cove Island Resort has nature at its heart. The waters surrounding the Resort are pristine and full of marine life. The island itself is natural tropical beauty offering rainforest trails and wildlife experiences.

We have a number of native bushland locations for you to discover and explore on your stay. These locations include the mangrove swamp, the Banksian Rainforest, the Melaleuca Wetlands, the Eucalypt Woodlands and the coastal sand dunes.

The island is also a sanctuary for the native Golden Swamp Wallaby. At sundown every day, up to a dozen wallabies will gather on the Village Green to collect their food for the evening. Other mammals on the island include the Northern Brown Bandicoot, Echidnas, Squirrel Gliders and Fawn-Footed Melomys.

The island is a bird-watcher’s paradise with Kookaburras, Rainbow Lorikeets, Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos, Egrets, Curlews and Sea Eagles all in residence. The rich diversity of habitats at Couran Cove Island Resort also supports over 205 species of birds. For all the bird-watchers, enjoy the list below to what you might have the opportunity to see:

The largest lizard on the island is the Lace Monitor or Goanna that can be found in bushland and up the trees.
