What You’ll Love...
Exclusive Reefworld — Reefleep in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef
There are few better places to stargaze than onboard Reefworld — and from this spectacular floating pontoon, you’ll have a front-row seat to the Coral Sea sunset and the watery wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef.
Moored at Hardy Reef, 39 nautical miles from Airlie Beach, Reefworld feels like it’s perched on the glittering edge of the world. The Whitsunday Islands are mere dots in the distance and when the day-trippers return to shore, it becomes a secluded oasis that is exclusively yours, with max. 24 travellers staying on board overnight.
The Ultimate Reefsleep Experience — A Whitsundays cruise, stargazing and snorkelling the reef
Breathtaking marine life and kaleidoscopic coral reef, extreme stargazing and snorkelling through the translucent waters of one of Australia’s most natural gifts, this overnight escape affords the ultimate Great Barrier Reef experience.
Your stay begins with an unforgettable cruise through the majestic Whitsundays — keep an eye out for migrating Humpback Whales between July and September — en route to Hardy Reef. Out in the crystal-clear reef, you can swim and snorkel through this underwater paradise, enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime semi-submarine experience and descend into the underwater observatory.
After the day-trippers return to shore, drink in the mesmerising sunset views with a welcome cocktail, share dinner with your intimate group of passengers and enjoy uninterrupted vistas of the star-swept skies from your Reefbed on the pontoon’s top level — it’s just you, the ocean and a galaxy of stars here.
Dawn on the reef is peaceful and unhurried, with time to enjoy a snorkel before breakfast — the reef is exclusively yours — or return to the underwater observatory to watch the reef come to life. After lunch, your Cruise Whitsundays vessel returns you to the mainland.
The Reefbed — Sleep under the stars and fall asleep to the Coral Sea’s soundtrack
Wrap yourself in your swag-style Reefbed on the pontoon’s top level and gaze at the uninterrupted carpet of stars dotting the southern night skies, letting the gentle soundtrack of tranquil waves lull you to sleep. Includes a souvenir pack featuring a stainless steel drink bottle and toy turtle.
Travelling as a couple? Choose the twin share package, valid for two adults (aged 12 years and over).
All-Inclusive Dining — Be wined and dined with daily breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks included
Savour the true taste of the tropics with all-inclusive dining and drinks, including beer and wine, throughout this bucket list-worthy escape. Over two days and one night, you’ll be treated to a welcome sunset cocktail handcrafted by the onboard bartender, two morning and afternoon teas featuring the likes of Australian oysters and Whitsundays wild prawns for that post-snorkel pick-me-up, two lunches and one dinner.
Breakfast and dinner are decadent affairs, served alfresco on the deck overlooking the otherworldly beauty of the Coral Sea. Cruise Whitsundays — Journey Beyond will reach out in the week prior to the cruise to enquire about your beer and wine preferences (subject to availability).
Dinner will include several courses which could include citrus-cured king salmon, Morton Bay bug and mini pork tacos, alongside Hervey Bay scallop or mini vegan burgers. The menu changes accordingly to seasonality and availability. One thing is for sure, every dining experience will set your tastebuds alight.
See & Do — Dive into the magic of the Great Barrier Reef
