How you can see Australia’s iconic Heart Reef up close and personal

How you can see Australia’s iconic Heart Reef up close and personal

It doesn’t get much better than the beautiful and mesmerising Heart Reef – and now, for the first time ever, people are able to experience it up close and personal.

Until recent months, the only way travellers were able to experience the Heart Reef was way above in the sky for a stunning scenic flight.

Now, after a decade of development and $2 million spent to make an impossible mission possible, visitors will now get the rare opportunity to see it up close with the launch of Whitsundays Heart Island. 

What makes it a sight to behold isn’t just the fact that it’s in the most iconic destination filled with privacy and solitude, but travellers can also take pride in the fact that they are one of the first people to have exclusive access to the luxury experience.
