In a truly rare opportunity, Victor Island, a secluded paradise nestled in the Whitsundays, is now up for sale. Covering a 3.14-hectare expanse of beachfront, the sale is being jointly facilitated by Colliers and PRD Real Estate Mackay, inviting expressions of interest from international buyers.
Stacey Quaid, Colliers Queensland’s Managing Director, detailed the island’s offerings and potential, saying, “This is a very rare opportunity to secure an exclusive private island in the Whitsunday’s under a recently commenced 25 year Queensland Government lease.” She added, “The island offers a sense of seclusion, while also being only a 10-minute boat trip to Hay Point boat ramp on the mainland.”
Not only does the island possess a ready-to-move-in 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom beach house, it’s also equipped with amenities to live off the grid, boasting its own coral reefs and white sandy beaches. Quaid continued, “The island has the capacity to be predominantly self-sufficient with the ability to harvest rain water and solar power systems to supply electricity.”
One of Victor Island’s significant selling points, according to Quaid, is its location, “The island’s location offers a perfect balance between seclusion while still being in accessible proximity to the mainland making it an ideal getaway for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life while still having access to the conveniences and attractions of nearby Mackay.”
PRD Real Estate Mackay Managing Director Greg Chappell echoed Quaid’s sentiments, saying, “Mackay Airport has direct flights from Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Melbourne, providing direct access to the world.” He added that the island is easily accessible, featuring a beach house, sparkling pool, caretaker’s cottage and work shed.
In addition to the living amenities, Victor Island offers diverse landscapes and an alluring natural setting. “The island comprises landscaped gardens, eco-style accommodations and supporting infrastructure, as well as rainforest covered flat to rolling terrain, with walking tracks as well as sandy beaches and stretches of rocky coastline,” Chappell noted.
The beach house, which has recently been refurbished, has been designed with careful consideration to maximise space and embrace the surrounding views. Chappell elaborated, “The residence offers spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area overlooking the expansive outdoor entertaining space. Recently refurbished, the layout of the home has been thoughtfully designed to offer a sense of space for its guests while still being able to embrace the stunning blue water views and surrounds of the island.”
Access to Victor Island is via boat from the mainland, with multiple boat ramps available from Mackay, Hay Point Grasstree Beach/Sarina Beach. Alternatively, the island can also be reached by helicopter, with the flight from Mackay Airport taking approximately 12 minutes.
The property is being offered for sale via expressions of interest which close on Thursday 15 June at 4pm (AEST). The island’s current lease from the Queensland Government runs through until 28 January 2034. This exceptional opportunity to own a piece of paradise is unlikely to come around again anytime soon.
