Hi Joan,

Greg Roberts from the Sunshine Coast has a blog on his visit to Lady Elliot

which might help.

I have mostly snorkelled rather than birded on Lady Elliot, but I would not
expect the tide to make much difference; there are no mud flats, and at low
tide of the lagoon side you can walk out to the rim of the reef, and walk
around the island. The tide makes a big difference to the snorkeling in the
lagoon, for at low tide it is too shallow, but not much difference on the
other side, for the drop off into deeper water is quite rapid.

I am in Hervey Bay  and would like to visit Lady Eliott Is for a day trip to
see all the birds there.  However the tide is high most of the time the trip
lasts( 8.40- 3.30) and I am wondering if it is still possible to see the
birds or should I postpone my trip till I am in QLd at another time from Nov
- March when there is a low tide.  As I want to keep travelling south I do
not want to wait till next week for a low tide day.

I would appreciate any advice from someone who has experienced Lady Eliott
