This tropical Island is one of those rare gems situated 3km off the coast of Central Queensland. This island is easy to get to as it boasts it’s own private airstrip of 1100 metres, along with a 4 bedroom high set home set up high on the most magnificent vantage point of the island.

This Island is extremely well priced for an exotic Island of this size. If nature is what you seek then this totally private 8.68 hectare(21.5 acres) retreat is just perfect with a rainforest and an abundance of orchids and exotic plants.

This very affordable Island has just come on the market and I suggest if you are due for that sea change or for that private family retreat, then this Island and home is worth inspecting in the short term.

Some of the most outstanding features apart from the views of this Island are the great white sandy beaches as well as the undisturbed coral and oysters that are ready to eat directly off the rocks.

Whales have also been viewed from this aquatic oasis, as they pass North in August and then on their way South in September. Also inhabiting the Island are Sea Turtles, which nest in December, followed by hatchlings in January/February. Sights such as these are common on glorious Temple Island.

There are a number of additional assets on the Island apart from the home; there is a tractor and slasher, car 1986 Range Rover, ride on mower, solar hot water system, generator 240 volts, Boat 4 meter with 25hp Yamaha motor, phone, large rainwater tanks, dam and a bore that has produced great water in the past (not used at this time as plenty of rain water).

This very rare sensational property is leasehold and has another 20 years to run before it needs to be renewed. Negotiations with the Queensland Government regarding rollover of leases can be negotiated 2 years out from expiry date.

The fishing is just sensational and access is easy via a plane from Rockhampton or Mackay Airports, which are serviced by all the major domestic airlines into these two regional airports. Alternatively travel by boat from the mainland point of Ilbilbie off Cape Palmerston about an hour south from Mackay.
