Heron Island Research Station has been advised that as of Wednesday 3rd April 2019, the catamaran that transfers passengers between Gladstone and Heron Island will be changing its schedule. Times will be confirmed early in 2019, however, it is expected that from April onwards the Heron Islander will depart Gladstone at 10:00am and arrive at Heron Island at 12:15pm approximately. The catamaran will then depart Heron Island at 2:00pm and arrive at Gladstone at 4:15pm approximately. Travel days will remain as Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

These changes will allow visitors more time on the island to conduct their activities, but we understand that it will potentially cause some logistical challenges for transport to and from Gladstone. Should you have any issues please contact us and we will assist you to work out the best options for your visit.
