More than a decade after "Finding Nemo" became a cult classic, Disney's Pixar Animation Studios' "Finding Dory" is set to hit theaters this month.

In celebration of the movie's release June 17, Airbnb is partnering with Pixar to launch a "Live Like Dory" contest in which one lucky winner and three of their guests will be awarded one unforgettable night inside of a floating room on Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

In addition to the one-of-a-kind accommodation, the winner and their guests will be provided with meals prepared by Australian chef Neil Perry, while a local guide will lead tours throughout the reef.

Snorkeling and scuba diving will also be available. 

Fortunately for those in other parts of the world, the contest prize includes plane tickets to Australia.

"The opportunity to live at one of the most spectacular places on earth, even if just for a night, is not just about experiencing the unrivaled beauty of the location. It's about understanding how humans can better help and support this special environment," Airbnb Australian Country Manager Sam McDonagh told Mashable

The contest winner will be joined by marine biologists who will be able to educate them on the reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981.

McDonagh said Airbnb will plant mangroves and other plants in the region this year with the goal of reducing carbon and improving water quality.

Travelers can click here to enter to win the contest. The deadline to enter is June 30 and a winner will be announced July 4. 

The unique contest arrives on the heels of a similar giveaway from Airbnb rival HomeAway, which will award four lucky winners with an overnight stay inside Paris' iconic Eiffel Tower this summer.
