There is no doubt the appetite for sustainable touring options is bigger than ever, and the MICE sector is no exception. The space of business events has evolved and while delegates visiting the Great Barrier Reef want to explore the stunning underwater world up close, the demand to learn about conservation, culture, and sustainability is extremely high.
Developed in collaboration with our research experts, GBR Biology, we are proud to announce the launch of our new ReefConnect Program – a dedicated approach to immersive and educational experiences for Events and Groups.
The ReefConnect Program is the first of its kind on the Great Barrier Reef, enabling our guests to visit the reef while gaining an insight into conservation, cultural awareness and marine education.
Providing fully guided experiences and tailored itineraries, the program is catered towards sustainability focused and culturally interested visitors in the business event space.
Our team of marine and cultural specialists have created three bespoke reef experience programs with a focus on:
- Reef Conservation
Learn about the threats that reefs globally are facing and the incredible programs that are building on this natural resilience. Engage in research projects conducted by GBR Biology to increase understanding of the places we visit on the Great Barrier Reef. Join in on our conservation efforts and become a Great Barrier Reef Ambassador.
- First Nations Sea Country
Immerse yourself in a 60,000-year-old culture. Led by Traditional Owner groups of the land and sea in which we work, experience the resources available to them, hear the creation stories of the Great Barrier Reef before diving in and learning about the modern management and uses of this incredibly diverse system.
- Marine Science
The Great Barrier Reef is renowned for its biodiversity. Delve deeper into the things that make the reef tick; food chains, plankton, adaptations and physical conditions. Immerse your clients in hands-on learning about the Great Barrier Reef and give them the experience of being a Marine Biologist for a day.
These programs can be added on to non-exclusive group bookings across any Reef Unlimited tour, as well as private charter arrangements for each of our Great Barrier Reef experiences in Cairns and Port Douglas.
