Makepeace Island

Noosa River, Queensland

A private heart-shaped island only minutes from Noosa, Makepeace Island is ideal for a multi-generational family vacation. Separate accommodation villas provide space and privacy, whilst communal areas and activities bring the family together.

Luxuriously accommodating up to 20 ‘castaways’, just 5 minutes upstream from the chic coastal resort town of Noosa on Queensland’s idyllic Sunshine Coast, Makepeace is a 25-acre private island hideaway available for exclusive use. Originally developed as a laid-back rockstar-style retreat for family and friends of the island’s co-owners, Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Australia co-founder, Brett Godfrey, this private island resort features expansive indoor and outdoor entertaining areas set amongst tropical riverside gardens.
Individually decorated with Balinese-style furnishings, accommodation is provided in three spacious two-bedroom villas, the central four-bedroom, four-bathroom Island House and a private riverside Boathouse for two.
