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. With accommodation to perfectly suit your adventure group or holiday style, 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, private decks and barbeques overlooking the sunset, as well as the use of SUP’s (Stand Up Paddles), glass-bottomed kayaks and snorkeling and fishing gear.
A holiday offering a blissful escape for a group of up to thirty-three guests, and a chance to partake in pristine nature.
Here you will find just five eco-friendly, self-catering beach cottages & two beach shacks, powered by wind and sun, overlooking crystalline beaches.
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.
Accommodating a maximum of 33 guests, Pumpkin Island can easily become your own private exclusive island paradise.
Ideal for families and friends, weddings and corporate functions, where the only other guests are those you invited yourself.
In 2011 Pumpkin Island was recommended by one of Australia’s renowned travel journalists, Alison Cotes, as one of her 5 best islands on the Great Barrier Reef
