Day 3 .

All Day

The decked-out, all-inclusive finale event.

What better way to celebrate two days of incredible, best-of-the-best industry speakers than floating amidst the clear waters, brilliant corals, and rich sea life of tropical North Queensland!
Glass-bottom and semi-sub boat tours, snorkelling with expert instructors, an underwater observatory – this is just some of the sun-lover fun you can expect. Plus a DJ and catered lunch, of course.
