Reefsleep for Honeymooners… a unique experience
Stargazing by night, exploring by day - it really doesn’t get much better than this.
This two day, one night adventure is the ultimate unplugged experience, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a night sleeping under the stars at the Great Barrier Reef.
Our permanently moored pontoon is located on Hardy Reef, 39 nautical miles from shore on the Great Barrier Reef. One of the most spectacular stretches of the Reef, it’s a destination for day visitors but, for a lucky few, it’s a night out unlike any other.
Just you, millions of stars, and your private stretch of the Great Barrier Reef. Prepare yourself for an intimate and totally unique experience that will stay with you forever.
Watch as the day guests depart from mid-afternoon, and then sit back and relax and enjoy having the pontoon to yourself. As dusk approaches, watch the sunset and see the reef come to life – all while sipping your sundowner. As night falls, from your spot on the deck you will dine under the stars before retiring for the night, letting the sounds of the tranquil Coral Sea lull you to sleep. Your Uniquely Australian accommodation comes in the form of a waterproof single or double swag.
Here, in the outer reef, the sea breezes, blazing star-lit sky and gentle rhythm of the tides hypnotically combine to create the ultimate sleepover... and a lifelong memory.
