A wedding venue like no other, say 'I Do' with the backdrop of the spectacular Great Barrier Reef!

Cruise onboard a dedicated, comfortable and modern vessel to Hardy Reef, where our pontoon is situated at the spectacular outer Great Barrier Reef. This is home to world famous Heart Reef and is a truly unique opportunity to create an incredible dream wedding day.

Event design specialists prepare the exclusive reef pontoon areas to complement the natural beauty of the surrounds with tasteful and classic decor. An elegant wedding arch on the upper deck is the location for the vows, and the lower deck overlooking the surrounding coral is set for formal sit down or cocktail style receptions. After drinks, speeches and dancing guests enjoy a sunset cruise back through the Whitsunday Islands while the newlyweds have a romantic evening in a Australian 'Swag'. The perfect end to a perfect day.
