New Day Trip Making The Southern Great Barrier Reef Even More Accessible From Brisbane

Alliance Airlines and Lady Musgrave Experience have announced an exciting new day trip to the pristine Southern Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef Day Trip package includes charter flights Brisbane and Bundaberg and a day trip to the newest reef experience on the Reef, the Lady Musgrave HQ pontoon.

On arrival in Bundaberg, guests will transfer to Bundaberg Port Marina to board luxury catamaran Main Event for their journey to Lady Musgrave Island.

Once at the coral cay and its surround 1,400 hectare lagoon, the day will be spent snorkelling, taking a guided tour of Lady Musgrave Island and a trip on a glass bottom boat through the Lady Musgrave lagoon and reef. Morning and afternoon tea is included as well as a buffet lunch featuring seafood, cold meats, salads and more.

Owner of Lady Musgrave Experience Brett Lakey said, “Not only does this get people from our major cities into the region, it also gives them a direct opportunity to explore the beautiful Lady Musgrave Island as a quick and easy one-day trip.  With the addition of the new luxury pontoon at the reef, visitors are given a whole other option to visit a world-class facility and explore a stunning destination.”

Mayor Jack Dempsey said it was great to see Alliance Airlines introduce the charter flights to the region. “Council has been talking to Alliance for 18 months about different options and opportunities.  The all-inclusive tours are sure to be popular with people looking to experience the majestic Great Barrier Reef in a day trip from Brisbane and will also open up options for our other tourism operators throughout the region. This is a great opportunity to tell your family and friends in the South East to make a trip to the Bundaberg Region!”

The whole package, including the flights, costs up to $620 and the first trip will take place on 21 November 2021 with future dates to be announced shortly.

Bookings are available now via Brisbane Tickets or via your local travel agent.
