Sleeping in the middle of Australia’s Coral Sea, out on open water, underneath the blue sky, watching the stars and spending some high quality time with your beloved ones. Nope, this is not an illusion, it’s possible!! I am talking about Reefsleep – the only overnight accommodationon at the Great Barrier Reef.

Located at Hardy Reef, 40 nautical miles from the Whitsundays coast, Reefsleep has been named Australia’s best unique accommodation multiple times and offers two days and one night’s accommodation at a permanently moored pontoon on the Great Barrier Reef, hosting a maximum of 12 people.  Reefsleep guests have a full range of activities including snorkelling, swimming, exploring the reef via semi submersible and enjoying the facilities of Reefworld all on offer exclusively for them after the day trip guests leave and before they arrive the next morning. For an even more unique experience you have the opportunity to sleep underneath the stars in a swag, 40 miles from land on the Great Barrier Reef or even sign up for a night-time scuba dive.

I cannot stop dreaming after looking at these pictures and am actually wondering if we could manage to organize a group of 12 international bloggers or 3-4 bloggers from Germany for a Whitsundays blogparade. – Yes, I’ll definitely put some thoughts into it!

In the meantime, I just keep picturing myself sitting on deck, humming “Fly me to the moon” and enjoying a glass of fine wine. :-)
