Uncover Island Bliss With a Luxury Vacay Exploring W Brisbane and Lady Elliot Island

Who needs Bora Bora when you have one of the world's most pristine islands on your doorstep. W Brisbane has partnered with Lady Elliot Island to offer a rare opportunity to explore one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World from the air, land and sea all in one day. No passport needed for this ultimate island adventure.

The exclusive experience 'All Reefed Up' includes two nights' accommodation at W Brisbane with parking and a Great Barrier Reef day tour to Lady Elliot Island you will never forget. By day, soak in the natural beauty of one of the world's best snorkelling destinations all without leaving our shores! By night stay and play at W Brisbane with cocktails at Living Room Bar or dinner at Three Blue Ducks.

To capture every second of this experience, get up and hit it early with a private transfer to Redcliffe Airport before an unforgettable 1 ½ hour scenic flight to Lady Elliot Island. The dramatic Queensland coastline will offer stellar views while guests FUEL up for the epic day ahead with a light brekky served during the flight.

Hit the ground running with an island orientation before a glass bottom boat trip to explore the crystal-clear waters of the Southern Great Barrier Reef including a guided snorkelling tour. Get decked out in all the gear – mask, snorkel, fins and wetsuit provided, even if you have no idea!

Take the plunge and discover the amazing array of marine life at the most southern tip of the Reef, with a full day to splash and explore the coral cay. Swim alongside incredible reef fish of all colours and size and keep an eye out for turtles, dolphins and the resident manta rays at our very own Aussie natural wonder.

After working up an appetite, guests will enjoy a waterfront lunch including fresh prawns at the Beachfront Café, served with drinks to turn it up a notch. Snorkelling frothers can spend the afternoon with another underwater session, relax seaside or join the fish feeding frenzy with your Lady Elliot Island guide. All land-dwelling necessities including towels, sunscreen and reef walking shoes will be courtesy of Lady Elliot Island.

Jetting back to Brisbane, guests can revel in the epic scenery and take in the views over the coastline one last time before they get glammed up and hit the Living Room Bar for bespoke cocktails and gourmet bites. Or why not enjoy the signature paddock-to-plate ethos of Three Blue Ducks, a mix of Queensland's vibrant yet laidback culture with a 'real food' philosophy.

Top off a huge day by unwinding in one of the hotel's luxe guest rooms or suites and recounting your adventures while you drift off to sleep.
