One of Australia's best-kept secrets, Pumpkin Island is nestled in the Southern Great Barrier Reef’s Keppel Group of islands 14 kilometres off the coast of Yeppoon. The Island is the ultimate ‘get away from it all’ for couples, family groups or larger parties undertaking special celebrations.
This tiny gem – just six hectares in total – offers you eco-friendly accommodation for up to 34 guests in 7 self-catering units that are powered by the wind and the sun. All offer private decks and barbeques overlooking the sunset.
There is so much to do on this little island treasure. The wildlife will delight you; see dolphins, turtles and whales in season. Fish the rich waters, snorkel or experience the coral reefs from a glass bottom kayak or stand up paddle board, harvest your own oysters off the rocks or simply wander the secluded beaches.
Your hosts, Wayne and Laureth, look forward to welcoming you to their island home and hope you enjoy your stay.
“Pumpkin Island is one of heaven’s most tranquil masterpieces...Pumpkin strips you bare to frolic without care, the world another world away, until it’s time to wade and climb aboard the ship of life and wave goodbye to heaven until another day.”
Not far from great keppel island, nestled in the keppel islands, Pumpkin Island is a private island ideal for yoga retreats where the whole island is for rent to groups, families and friends.
