Hook Island

Project overview

The resort site on Hook Island has undergone a major transformation with clean-up work completed as part of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) Island Resorts Rejuvenation Program.

We are supporting reactivating the resort site, which has not operated since February 2013.

With co-funding from the GBR Island Resorts Rejuvenation Program, the new owners of Hook Island Eco Resort have fast-tracked the demolition of 10 buildings and removed over 225 tonnes of waste from the island including diesel tanks, car bodies and building material.

The site is now ready for redevelopment as a nature-based, eco-friendly resort with a focus on low-impact, low-emission, sustainable accommodation for the environmentally-conscious visitor.

With our support the rejuvenation program has ensured:

  • removal of legacy waste from the site making it ready for redevelopment and activation
  • removal of the decommissioned underwater observatory, which was deemed structurally unsound from the marine park
  • installation of 12 new moorings and restoration of walking tracks within the resort site.


  • Clean up and removal of legacy waste from the resort site
