Days 4 and 5 An unforgettable Great Barrier Reef experience - ‘REEFSLEEP - Under the Stars’: There can be few more unique experiences offered in the world than the chance to sleep under the stars, 40 nautical miles from shore on the Great Barrier Reef! Our permanently moored pontoon ‘Reefworld’ is located on Hardy Reef – one of the most spectacular stretches of the Great Barrier Reef. This is the destination for our day visitors but for a lucky few, it’s a once in a lifetime, breathtaking and memorable overnight experience.

By day, all the amazing activities offered on our Great Barrier Reef Adventures are there to be enjoyed – diving (extra cost), snorkelling, swimming with thousands of fish, massages and scenic helicopter flights to Heart Reef (both extra cost). But by 3pm, the day guests depart and you along with your fellow Reefsleep guests (maximum 9) get Reefworld all to yourselves. Watch the sun set over the reef while you sip champagne and then see the reef really come to life in the darkness of the night. Sleep under the stars in your comfy swag on the top deck of the pontoon; the tranquility of the ocean will lull you to sleep. In the morning, enjoy more private time with the reef before the day guests rejoin you. Enjoy another full day on the Reef then around 3pm head back to Airlie Beach.
