Only 4 Hours From Brisbane

The Great Barrier Reef is only a short drive or flight from Brisbane.

Either as part of an extended trip on the Queensland coast or a few days away you must visit Lady Musgrave Island & Lagoon with Lady Musgrave Experience. Bundaberg is your first port of call & gateway to the Great Barrier Reef from Brisbane.

Join us on our luxurious 35 metre Catamaran the Reef Empress, as we take you to the most pristine coral reef and only navigable lagoon on the Great Barrier Reef to our new, world-class pontoon Lady Musgrave HQ.

Lady Musgrave Island, Lagoon and Reef is located just 22 nautical miles north of Lady Elliot Island, the southernmost island on the Great Barrier Reef. 

If you want to be mesmerised by the quality of the Great Barrier Reef then join us in the reef’s only navigable lagoon, swimming with turtles, snorkelling the amazing inner and outer reef coral walls surrounded by endless pristine corals and marine life. Snorkel or dive straight from our three-level pontoon or stay a while longer for a sleep on the reef experience in a Queen Glamping Bed or in our underwater observatory.

Fish species abound with hordes of colourful tropical fish all around you, as you glide across the many pristine reef species of Lady Musgrave Island, Reef & Lagoon.

For those that don’t want to get wet, but still want to discover ‘The Best Experience on the Great Barrier Reef’, it’s absolutely no problem. Our highly trained staff will take you on a guided tour of the lagoon reef in a glass bottom boat and a guided nature walk on Lady Musgrave Island. 

Our glass bottom boats have maximised the glass surface area so you can see plentiful marine life and beautiful coral features from the comfort of your seat on the glass bottom boat. Everything you see is untouched natural features of the Great Barrier Reef. Lady Musgrave Lagoon crowds have been well managed over the years, limiting the potential impact of thousands of tourists in other reef destinations.
