Property Description

Pumpkin Island is a beautiful and humble little island along the Capricorn Coast, within the southern part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Reserve. The island is situated 14km off the coast of Yeppoon, 10km north of Great Keppel Island, 50km east of Rockhampton, and over 650km north of Brisbane.

Totaling just 6.1 hectares (450metres long and just 150metres wide at the widest point), the island is nestled in sheltered Keppel Bay, and surrounded by the Keppel group of islands (just south of North Keppel Island). The privately-owned island offers visitors eco-friendly accommodation in five self-contained and self-catering beach cottages. Wind and solar power provide electricity on the island, and freshly filtered rainwater provides drinking water for guests.

The island is a blissfully quiet getaway, given the small number of people who venture off the beaten path – and can accommodate a maximum of 34 guests at any one time. The island’s style is relaxed and informal, and it caters to a variety of guests, from romantic couples to families and large groups of friends. Being able to rent the whole island exclusively for privacy is a unique feature that Pumpkin Island offers.

Pumpkin Island provides a tranquil sanctuary surrounded by pristine nature, acting as a responsible travel choice that educates and conserves with minimal environmental impact.

Pumpkin Island was 'won' by Roger and Merle Mason in 1961 over a game of poker with a friend (and owner of the island), Snigger Findley, when Roger finally convinced Snigger to sell the island to the Mason's for a grand total of £60.

The Mason's established the Island as a tourist destination in 1964, before selling the island to its current owners in 2003.
