Lady Musgrave
This stunning, unspoiled and authentic island is stretched across 8 kilometres on Australia’s prominent South Great Barrier Reef. With an astonishing 12 kilometres of the surrounding reef, it is one of the few islands in the area where you can dive, snorkel, swim and camp! The tropical paradise is abundant in marine and birdlife, flora, fauna and a population of green and loggerhead turtles. Acknowledged as an underwater oasis, this island is waiting to be discovered, so pop on your snorkel and dive in.

Whitsundays
The 74 Whitsunday Islands are located between the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia and the Great Barrier Reef. The majority of the islands are completely uninhabited and characterised by white sand beaches, dense rainforest, colourful reefs and hiking trails. A new beach or a new snorkel site is waiting to be discovered as you cruise or sail your way around the 74 islands.

The Kimberley
In the faraway north-west pocket of Australia, you will find one of the most pristine regions in the world.

Discover a never-ending haven of turquoise waters, white sands, waterfalls, and sandstone gorges that will take your breath away. Witness landscapes that have been carved over millions of years, immersed in the diverse wildlife and serenity of the region.
