Daydream Island your Great Barrier Reef Island Resort
Daydream Island is one of Australia’s great Barrier Reef island resorts and the perfect location to explore the world famous Great Barrier Reef.
Whether you’re a non-swimmer or keen to get wet, there are many ways you can interact with the planet’s largest living organism.
Using Daydream as your Great Barrier Reef island resort stepping stone, right in the heart of The Whitsundays, there are three ways to enjoy a Reef experience you’ll never forget.
Living Reef – Unique Amongst Great Barrier Reef Island Resorts
The amazing Living Reef that courses through the resort is one of Australia’s most unique attractions. These free-form, living coral reef lagoons are home to over 140 species of marine fish, 80 species of coral and 15 species of invertebrates such as starfish, sea cucumbers and crabs.
Marine biologists living on the island care for the animals around the clock, and love nothing better than having guests join them in a range of interactive experiences, such as feeding baby stingrays or learning about the fascinating biological processes of the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest living organism.
Free public fish feeding shows are held daily.
Fringing Reef and Islands
Daydream is the only inhabited Whitsunday Island with fringing reef directly off the island. With just a short stroll from your room you can be amongst the most fascinating marine life in just a matter of minutes.
Daydream Island has some of the best fringing coral reef in the region and visitors are assured of a great snorkelling or diving experience. The colour and variety of marine life must be seen to be believed.
Live weekly shows after dark at Lovers Cove show the fringing coral reef coming alive at night. Sit back in comfort as Daydream Island’s marine biologist team dive in and stream ‘live’ underwater footage to a screen during this unique educational experience.
The Whitsundays consists of 74 islands and of the barrier reef island resorts Daydream is the perfect base to explore this aquatic wonderland. In your very own hire boat you can discover places like Nara Inlet and Butterfly Bay off Hook Island, world famous Whitehaven Beach, or venture to North Molle or White Rock Island.
The Great Barrier Reef
There’s nothing like experiencing the natural wonder of The Great Barrier Reef with Cruise Whitsundays on their full day cruise to one of their pontoons on the outer reef. Hardy Reef lagoon is the main destination for day-trippers from Daydream.
The pontoons have a choice of areas to relax and a great range of activities. Undercover seating and tables, sun decks, freshwater showers, change rooms and full access to the air-conditioned comfort of the reef vessel are provided.
