Holidaymakers will be able to see the fascinating inhabitants of Daydream’s Living Reef – one of the world’s largest man-made living coral reef lagoons – from a completely different perspective.
Living Reef Manager John Gaskell said the Night Tours were a fantastic opportunity to see what marine creatures got up to at night.
“We’ve found that marine creatures, particularly the big rays, tend to be quite active at night time so it’s an excellent time to see them up close,” he said.
“They will be able to feed baby sharks, hold a baby bamboo shark and a sea star, feed and touch the huge stingrays and learn about Australian marine life from Daydream Island’s resident marine biologists. It’s an unforgettable experience.”
The Living Reef is home to more than 140 species of colourful marine fish, 82 species of coral and 15 species of other invertebrates such as starfish, sea cucumbers and crabs. It comprises two lagoons and holds more than 1.5 million litres of water.
New marine animals are continually being discovered in the Living Reef, with many of these on display in tanks in the Living Reef centre. Ever popular clownfish also call The Living Reef home and are a continual favourite with guests and one of the iconic images of Daydream Island and The Great Barrier Reef.
The Night Tours are available every Friday from 6.15pm at the Living Reef Centre. Prices are $25 per person or $70 for a family (two adults, two children).
Bookings are essential – please book at the activities desk before 4pm on Daydream Island Resort and Spa or call 1800 075 400.
