If your client is looking for an educational experience on their next holiday, or they’ve got a budding marine biologist in their ranks, why not tell them about Australia’s only resort that boasts a living man-made coral reef?
The 4.5-star premium resort, which has just undergone two-years and $100 million dollars’ worth of redevelopment, is set to reopen on April 10 unveiling a new look and refreshed signature dining concepts, relaxed bars and suites with breathtaking views.
Wrapped around the resort’s central building, the Living Reef holds a whopping 1.5 million litres of fresh, filtered seawater and is home to a huge variety of fish, small sharks, rays and loads of other reef-dwelling critters that you can get up close and personal with during one of the resorts educational tours.
The freshly revamped reef features a brand-new underwater observatory taking you four meters below the surface with seven by three-meter viewing windows so you can spy lobsters and fish hiding among the reef as rays glide by.
The resort hosts five daily activities based around the Living Reef, giving your clients an immersive look at local marine life in a creative, educational and fun-filled setting.
Daily activities include:
- Feed snacks to a baby reef shark at a guided fish feeding
- Watch divers navigate the reef from the Underwater Observatory
- Have a splash through the reef with baby sting rays followed by a talk and tour in the Underwater Observatory
- Go behind the scenes with the resort’s resident marine biologists
- Snorkel through the reef with one of the resort’s marine biologists
For the night owls, the resort also hosts after-dark tours, giving your client a hands-on experience in the new touch tank and an insight into the marine life’s nocturnal activities.
If your client is looking for something a little more exclusive, tell them to check out the Living Reef’s Marine Biologist for a Day program. Here, they can experience a day in the life of resort’s marine biologists and get a behind the scenes look at how they care for the animals throughout the reef.
It’s a must for any aspiring marine biologist.
The rebrand breathes new life into the destination, as it concludes its journey of recovery from the devastation caused in 2017 by Cyclone Debbie.
“We wanted the new brand to signal the evolution of the Island,” Jayson Heron, Director of Sales and Marketing said.
“The new brand gives a nod to the Island’s heritage whilst also looking to the future”
