Heart Reef is one of Australia's most Instagrammable destinations but until recently, the only way to catch a glimpse of it was with a quick fly by. With the Heart Island Reef Experience, guests of Hamilton Island can get unprecedented access to the natural wonder. It starts with a helicopter ride over Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet before landing on a helipad above the Heart Island pontoon — a private lair floating adjacent to the main attraction. Upon arrival, up to six people will have 90 minutes to tour the coral formation. This includes a glass-bottom boat ride and a snorkel around the lagoon. If there's still time left, enjoy the views from inside the pontoon and take advantage of its undercover swimming pool.
