Day One:

Depart Airlie Beach or your Island Resort early morning, to head on an unforgettable 2 night, 1 day adventure to the Great Barrier Reef.

Reefsleep is an extension of the popular Great Barrier Reef Adventure Day Cruise. Guests on the Reefsleep experience travel to Reefworld pontoon onboard a high-speed reef vessel with day cruise guests.

Arrival at the pontoon is around 11am. By day, you'll enjoy all the wonderful activities on offer with a Great Barrier Reef Adventure, including snorkelling, swimming, semi-sub rides, viewing fish from the underwater observatory and sunbathing on deck.


Come 3pm, the day visitors depart the pontoon, meaning this magnificent part of the world is just for you, fellow Reefsleep guests (maximum 12), and the crew to enjoy.

Soak up the unique solitude and tranquility of the Great Barrier Reef and watch as the underwater world comes to life as the sun starts to sink lower on the horizon.

Have your camera ready while you enjoy the sunset on the upper deck. The evening meal is a superb gourmet barbecue, served with other guests.

A Night Under The Stars:

Being so far from shore and any man-made lights, the stars will amaze you. Study the stars through our telescope or just lie back on 'starloungers' (sunloungers by day) and soak it all up!

Day Two:

Start the day with a hearty breakfast. You'll have the place to yourselves until 11am when the Great Barrier Reef Adventure day cruise guests arrive. Then, all the activities of the previous day are back on the itinerary, so dive right back in and explore!


Reefsleep features two types of accommodation: Under the Stars Swags or a Double Room.

Under the Star Swags:

A swag is a cosy, low tent with a clear viewing panel above your head, a comfortable mattress and snug bedding. Swags are available as king singles (for just one person) or doubles (for two people sharing).

The experience of sleeping in a swag out on the Great Barrier Reef is just unbeatable! Being so far from land, there are no biting insects, so you can even sleep with the cover open - just you, the sea air and the stars!

Double Room:

The Double Room at Reefworld is air-conditioned with an adjoining bathroom. Ideal for couples! There is one double room available.
