Overnight Reefsleep Experience

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! 'Reefworld' is located on Hardy Reef one of the most spectacular stretches of the Great Barrier Reef off the Queensland coast.

They only take a few overnight guests, and you can bunk down on deck with them in a 'swag' (an Australian sleeping roll, a bit like a giant sleeping bag-tent, with a mesh cover, so that you can see the stars. Each swag sleeps one or two people and has a mattress, base and sleeping sheet, sleeping bag and pillow).

This day cruise experience includes a vessel transfer to and from the Reef, full use of the pontoon, overnight accommodation at Reefworld, snorkelling with all gear provided, semi-submersible cruise with commentary, underwater viewing chamber, two all you can eat buffet lunches, two morning and afternoon teas, a superb barbecue dinner, presentations by Reef Experts, free wetsuit usage and use of the sun deck for topping up your tan. Massage, guided snorkelling, heli-scenic flights, night diving and daytime intro and certified diving experiences are available at an additional cost.

Located 104 kilometres south east of Cloncurry, McKinlay was named after the McKinlay River which was discovered and named by the explorer John McKinlay. McKinlay had arrived in New South Wales in 1836 and by 1861 had become such an adept bushman that he was chosen to lead the South Australian Burke Relief Expedition to search for the missing Burke and Wills.

Mount Isa

Mount Isa, Mount Isa Area
Affectionately known as the 'oasis of the outback', Mount Isa is a gleaming mirage on the horizon for travellers from all directions. Nestled among the ochre-red Selwyn Ranges, on the banks of the Leichhardt River, Mount Isa is a bustling melting pot of culture and industry and also home to the world's third largest rodeo.

Duchess
