Located in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef, Pelorus Private Island offers an unparalleled level of seclusion and indulgence. Accessible via a breathtaking 30 to 90-minute private helicopter charter from Townsville or Cairns, or by superyacht, it neighbours the Northern Escape Collection’s Orpheus Island Lodge. Pelorus stands as a naturally isolated retreat, encompassing five opulent suites, all set within 400 hectares of untouched habitat.

Crafted by Melbourne-based design and interior architecture studio Dubois, Pelorus seamlessly merges timeless design with the breathtaking beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. The spacious dwelling features clean lines and a contemporary aesthetic, clad in white-washed shiplap inside and out.

Five ocean-facing suites, just a stone’s throw from the reef, are adorned with natural linen fabrics, hand-made custom furniture, and lavish ensuites with spotted gum benchtops.

The communal lounges and dining areas, bathed in natural light, offer stunning Coral Sea views overlooking the beachfront pool. Spacious spotted gum verandas provide comfortable nooks and lounges for relaxation. Natural hardwood timber posts and hand-sanded feature columns support the expansive cathedral-inspired ceilings, with Palladian limestone and quartzite stone benchtops throughout.

Pelorus Private Island operates solely on solar panels and batteries, ensuring a self-sustainable energy supply. The design incorporates natural materials and ventilation systems to minimise the hideaway’s environmental impact.

Guests are invited to embrace both relaxation and adventure, with a wide range of Great Barrier Reef activities available, including diving, snorkeling, guided jet ski and seabob tours, and reef fishing. Boat charters to the Museum of Underwater Art (MOUA) installation are also on offer. The island provides access to the pristine wilderness of Hinchinbrook Island, Australia’s largest island national park, boasting rainforest-clad hiking trails, cascading waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and diverse flora.

Back at the residence, a private chef awaits to tantalise taste buds. The island is equipped with a fully stocked bar, teppanyaki grill, Big Green Egg barbecue, and Ooni pizza oven.

Pelorus Private Island joins the $418 million North Queensland tourism portfolio curated by Australian Rich Lister and Executive Chairman of Morris Group, Chris Morris. This collection aims to offer uniquely Australian experiences that elevate the region’s status as a world-class tourist destination.

Chris Morris shared his excitement, stating, “Pelorus Private Island puts Queensland in a competitive global landscape, boasting a rare offering of unparalleled levels of privacy and personalised service that is unique in this part of the world.
