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, and home to world famous Heart Reef. This is the destination for our day visitors, but for a lucky few, it’s a once in a life time, breathtaking and memorable overnight experience.

Reefsleep guests travel to Reefworld onboard one of our high speed luxury vessels, arriving around 11am with the day guests. By day, all the amazing activities offered on our Great Barrier Reef Adventures day cruise are there to be enjoyed – diving, snorkelling, swimming with thousands of fish, massages and scenic helicopter flights.

By 3pm, the day guests depart and the Reefsleep guests get Reefworld all to themselves. A certain hush settles…just the sound of the water and maybe a few sea birds. As dusk approaches watch for turtles surfacing or coming to nibble the seaweed around the pontoon. 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. You might even opt for a night dive (for certified divers only).

Being so far from shore and any man-made lights, you'll want to study the stars through our telescope or lie back on a lounger and marvel at the night sky. Sleep under the stars in a 'swag'. A swag is a cozy, low tent with a clear viewing panel above your head, a comfortable mattress and snug bedding. Our swags are available as king singles (for one person) or doubles (for two people sharing). 

On day two you’ll head home with the day guests onboard the reef vessel that afternoon, taking home plenty of memories and stories to tell.
