Daydream Island, Whitsunday Area
Daydream Island’s amazing Living Reef is a must see on the island. Located at the entrance to the resort, it is one of the world’s largest man-made living coral reef lagoons and features more than 80 species of marine fish and 50 species of coral. This microcosm of the Great Barrier Reef continues to capture the imagination of tourists young and old; with guests having the opportunity to hand feed resident stingrays, sharks and barramundi.
Guests are able to get up close and personal with lagoon favourites including Pikelet and Pancake the stingrays, Bruce the sickle fin lemon shark and Brutus, a large barramundi.
Free educational feeding sessions are held twice a day at 10.00 a.m. and 2.00 p.m. everyday, where guests have the opportunity to feed animals and learn about the marine eco-system. This allows people to get an invaluable glimpse of reef life while completely conserving the environment. Parents see a great deal of educational value in introducing their children to the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem and the beauties that live within it.
