Fancy sleeping with the fishes? Then Airbnb's latest listing, a studio apartment floating on the Great Barrier Reef, might be for you. 

The travel site is launching a competition that will see the lucky winner (and three lucky guests) spend the night in one of the world's greatest natural wonders, for one night only.

The studio features a master double bedroom and two bunk beds, as well as an open-air living space. Of course, the real attraction is the vast expanse of water below, containing 1,625 different types of fish, 133 varieties of sharks and rays and more than 30 species of whales and dolphins. 

The package includes a diving session with the studio's host, as well as home-cooked food from celebrated Australian chef Neil Perry.
