Pumpkin Island

Escape to a private island paradise and one of Australia’s most amazing, tiny hidden gems. This best-kept secret is nestled in the Southern Great Barrier Reef, a short ferry ride 14 kilometres from coastal Yeppoon.

Your holiday on Pumpkin offers a blissful retreat from stresses of modern-day life, a chance to partake in pristine nature, relax and unwind.

Choose from five eco-friendly self-catering cottages or two beach bungalows all powered by wind and sun, each accommodating between four to six guests. Alternatively, book the entire island for your exclusive use.

There’s so much to discover on this incredible 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. Afterwards, perhaps spend the afternoon relaxing in a hammock, then enjoy sunset from your deck overlooking the crystalline beach.

Whatever you choose – Pumpkin Island is wonderful for families, utterly romantic for couples and fabulous for groups of friends.
