Pumpkin Island

One of Australia’s hidden gems and smallest operating islands, this best-kept island secret is nestled in the Southern Great Barrier Reef off Yeppoon.

A holiday on Pumpkin offers a blissful escape from the stresses of modern day life and a chance to partake in pristine nature. Easily accessible from Keppel Bay Marina just 14km off Yeppoon.

There you will find five eco-friendly self-catering cottages and two beach bungalows powered by wind and sun, overlooking a crystalline beach. Each accommodates between four and six guests. Guests can pre-order gourmet meals from the award winning Waterline Restaurant, at Keppel Bay Marina, collected on the day of departure.

There is so much to do on this island treasure. The wildlife will delight you; expect to see dolphins, turtles and whales in season. Fish the rich waters, snorkel or experience the coral reefs from a glass bottom kayak, harvest your own oysters off the rocks or simply wander the secluded beaches. Perfect for safe swimming and snorkelling most of the year round.

Pumpkin Island is wonderful for families, utterly romantic for couples and a hoot for a group of friends.
