Lady Elliot Island is a 'Green Zone' which means no take. You won't be able to comb the beach for beautiful shells and corals, but you can find great souvenirs and gifts in the gift store. Australian made jewellery, arts and books are some of the many great items you can find in the store to enjoy on the island and at home.
The gift shop at Lady Elliot Island is located in the resort. The shop is inside the same building dedicated to the reception.
There is a variety of personal items and for the house. You can spoil yourself or choose gifts for your family and friends.
Art by Rebecca Jane, "Love Lady Elliot" panels are printed and shipped directly from the supplier. This is an excellent piece of art to have in the house, colourful and joyful - it will certainly add lots of good vibes to your place. Lady Elliot Island and all the creatures are represented on the panels, to remind you when you are no longer on the island of the terrific moments experienced on the island.
Secret Trove earrings are made by a family business on the Capricorn Coast in Yeppoon, Queensland. Secret Trove produces beautiful unique, quality and affordable earrings that bring joy to so many people.
Secret Trove began as a fun way to teach the children in the family about the value of money and good customer service and has since grown into a family business.
Secret Trove cares about the environment and produces items taking care to minimise waste. The small packaging is made from recyclable cardboard and paper, using only plastic when it is really necessary. Secret Trove thanks all the great customers who support this family business.
Buying a t-shirt as a gift is a great idea! If you buy a t-shirt for yourself, it is easy because you know your size and you are going to have a clothing item that is going to last for a while. Every time you wear a t-shirt, you'll remember your beautiful holiday at Lady Elliot Island. A t-shirt for your friends or family is also an item they will keep for a while and have plenty of use, each time remembering it was you that gave it to them.
Receiving a gift is always exciting! Maybe it is the mystery of what there is in the well-presented parcel, the idea of being thought of and remembered, or the fact that the present may be something that you really wanted!
The shop sells refillable bottles for your convenience and sustainability. Lady Elliot Island has a desalination plant that provides drinkable water for all on the island. There are a few bubblers on the resort with cool fresh water, fill up your bottle and you have water every time you need it.
When I am at Lady Elliot Island, I visit the gift shop. Generally, I buy books, a piece of art, cards and green tree frogs. Last time I bought a couple of sets of handmade lovely earrings. I am happy when I wear the earrings because it reminds me of the beautiful Lady Elliot Island.
A friend of mine bought some fine jewellery in the shop, from the World Treasure collection. World Treasure is a unique collection inspired by the beautiful creatures of the ocean: whales, turtles, sharks and manta rays. World Treasure has unique designs, featuring Australian gemstones and sustainably sourced metals. The studio workshop is right in Hervey Bay, Queensland.
