Scuba Diving packages are also available upon request with your friendly Pumpkin Island team.
Experience the Great Barrier Reef as you never have before; fish and dive the surrounding waters, lounge on the beach, read a book, go bird watching; unique and rare species abound, simply float in the water or delve into the adventurous side of Pumpkin Island. Explore the largest reef in the world, with a scuba tank* or without. Practice your casting at the famous Giant Trevally cove. Test your wits against the Spanish Mackerel, Coral Trout and Black Kingfish out in the deep sea*. Or simply take a leisurely day exploring adjoining Little Pumpkin and its natural wonders with a glass bottom kayak on an island tour watching the graceful turtles and dolphins or spotting a whale or two in the distance.
Hike up one of three peaks for unrivalled views of the surrounding islands and reefs. Put your mind at rest, Pumpkin is a snake free island. Artists bring your sketching and painting materials, leave your imagination behind...it’s all here to be seen. Take a swim at mid tide around the island's own coral lagoon and see a multitude of colourful coral, giant clams and fish. Snorkelling equipment as well as glass bottom sea kayaks are provided for your use. *Professional diving or fishing tours can also be arranged. Picnic lunch can be taken on the coconut palm-shaded lawns behind the tropical thatched hut overlooking the beach. Harvest your own oysters straight from the rocks. Silence is broken only by the rustle of palm leaves and the gentle sound of waves breaking on the reef, whilst sipping away at sundowners from the Lookout’s peaceful surroundings. Alternatively, arrange to have your evening ended with a beach bonfire and scrumptious marshmallows. Enjoy our clear stargazing night skies whilst listening to the soothing sounds of the Pacific Ocean.
Our bay’s make for perfect kite-surfing and windsurfing spots and the advantage of such a small island is that there is always a breeze just around a corner.
Fish for your own dinner within the shallow waters of the reef, or dine from our pre-order gourmet meals menu. Guests can self-cater or pre-order gourmet meals along with Australian wines, from the award winning Waterline Restaurant, at Keppel Bay Marina, Yeppoon. Meals and drinks are collected on the day of departure. The island will enchant all who choose Pumpkin Island for their self catering holidays in the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
Pristine protected beaches, sheltered coves and rare wildlife, not to mention fishing, snorkelling, swimming or just taking it easy, will keep you as busy on Pumpkin Island, or as relaxed as you wish...the choice is yours. Pumpkin Island is a playground for families young and old, utterly romantic for couples and a hoot for a group of friends.
