Brampton rebuild approved after 5-year shutdown

Mackay Regional Council has approved a seven-star resort development application on Brampton Island, a move welcomed by Mackay Tourism general manager Stephen Schwer.

The island was bought by United Petroleum in 2010 for $5.9 million and has been closed to the public ever since. The resort will be developed by Brampton Enterprises, a subsidiary of United Petroleum.

Council acting chief executive officer David McKendry said the proposed resort would be a combination of new and refurbished buildings. “The applicant will now be required to undertake detailed design work for the construction and servicing of the development, including obtaining other necessary approvals,” he said.

The island’s existing resort will be transformed into a boutique eco-resort featuring luxurious villas, a health spa, yoga platform, cinema, library and a three-hole golf course. The exclusive resort will cater for a maximum 30 guests at any one time.
