Queensland family outbids 14 others to secure private Whitsundays island for $2.51m


A Queensland family has emerged victorious in an intense bidding war, snatching up the rarely offered Victor Island in the Whitsundays for $2,510,000, beating out 14 other registered bidders from across Australia.

The 3.14-hectare property, one of the few privately owned, perpetual leasehold islands located at the southern end of the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, attracted significant national interest after being listed for sale by Ray White Surfers Paradise Group.

Marketing agent Michael Willems said the auction came down to a 20-minute battle between three parties, with the winning family planning to use the island for family holidays, whether for weekends or longer stays.

Ray White Surfers Paradise Group Chairman Andrew Bell said, “The luxurious property, with all the facilities needed to enjoy a dream lifestyle on an unspoilt, eco-friendly paradise, attracted enormous national interest after being listed for sale.”

The island features a newly renovated and stylishly furnished four-bedroom, two-bathroom house, offering a 360-degree oceanfront panorama, as well as a separate detached caretakers cottage, allowing the owners to come and go as they please while knowing the property is well-maintained.

Victor Island is easily accessible from Mackay and is adjacent to an extended coral reef, making it an ideal location for a private island getaway in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

The sale highlights the ongoing demand for unique, high-end properties in Australia’s most sought-after coastal locations, even in the face of a competitive bidding process.
