Makepeace Island

We all want our private getaways, and most of the times we find something we like. However, this is something really special and different. Makepeace Island is a small island resort located in the Noosa River on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. The heart-shaped island is currently owned by Virgin Australia (formerly known as Virgin Blue) founding partners, Brett Godfrey and Sir Richard Branson. Rarely is a luxurious destination this unique, and last July it was made available for public, but the island can only hold up to 22 guests at a time.

Makepeace Island also includes a 500,000 liter lagoon pool, a full sized tennis court and pavilion, spa facilities, theatre, office facilities and an expansive indoor bar designed for entertaining on a grand scale, and there are plenty off island activities that you can book. Gardens and indoor decor include giant sculptures, teak, granite and stone finishes, volcanic boulder bathtubs, ornamental lighting and antiquities and furniture commissioned and acquired in Bali, Java and elsewhere throughout Indonesia. One of the great things about this place is that the Great Barrier Reef is less than an hour away by charter flight, which can be arranged from the local Noosa airport. Makepeace Island is accessed by their private boat from Noosa Marina, or if you prefer by helicopter. Brisbane is a leisurely 1 hour 30 minute drive and flights to nearby Maroochydore Airport are available from all major Australian cities.
