Private islands remain the flavour of the quarter, with an exclusive Whitsunday destination coming to market.

The listing comes amid several other luxury and resort listings across the second quarter of this year. April saw Pumpkin Island come to market, located on the Great Barrier Reef. A Fijian resort that was practically a private island (occupying 29.9 hectares of the 30 hectare island) was also listed, and a unique cattle station on the fringe of the Great Barrier Reef also began to garner attention.

Last year also saw unique offerings come to market – Pig Island in the middle of Shoalhaven River was one, and Lindeman Island, also in the Great Barrier Reef.

Whitsundays prices rally

In August last year, property prices in the region rose by 25% from the 12 months prior.

The Whitsundays saw 53 transactions in excess of $1 million each from the start of 2022, through to August the same year.

Comprising 74 islands off Queensland’s northeast coast, the region broke records in 2021 with the sale of 75 properties for prices in excess of $1 million.

A previous listing The Property Tribune covered includes the site of the former Hook Island Wilderness Retreat.

Brought to market by Colliers and PRD Real Estate Mackay, Colliers‘ Queensland Managing Director in Cairns, Stacey Quaid, it is a unique opportunity.

“This is a very rare opportunity to secure an exclusive private island in the Whitsundays under a recently commenced 25 year Queensland Government lease,” Quaid said.

“The island offers a sense of seclusion, while also being only a 10 minute boat trip to Hay Point boat ramp on the mainland.

“The island’s location offers a perfect balance between seclusion while still being in accessible proximity to the mainland making it an ideal getaway for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life while still having access to the conveniences and attractions of nearby Mackay.

“The island has the capacity to be predominantly self-sufficient with the ability to harvest rain water and solar power systems to supply electricity.

“The quaint, private island is nestled within the pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and is part of the 74 islands that make up the iconic Whitsundays.

“Whether you are looking for a private retreat, a space to entertain guests or looking to further capitalise on the iconic Coral Sea surroundings, Victor Island has so much to offer,” Quaid added.
