Pelorus Private Island: A New Luxury Escape on the Great Barrier Reef

Pelorus Private Island, the latest addition to the Northern Escape Collection, has begun welcoming guests to its exclusive retreat. Set in the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef, the island promises unparalleled seclusion, accessible only by private helicopter from Townsville or Cairns, or by superyacht.

Adjacent to Northern Escape Collection’s Orpheus Island Lodge, Pelorus offers a singular, naturally isolated residence with five opulent suites amidst 400 hectares of untouched land. The design, crafted by Dubois, merges timeless elegance with the stunning vistas of the Great Barrier Reef.

The island’s architecture features contemporary, white-washed shiplap, ocean-facing suites adorned with natural linens, custom furniture, and luxurious ensuites. Communal areas boast breathtaking views, beachfront pools, and spotted gum verandas, creating serene gathering spaces.

Sustainability is key, with solar power and natural materials minimizing environmental impact. The island encourages guests to explore the Great Barrier Reef’s wonders through various activities, including diving, snorkeling, and exclusive boat charters.

Adventures extend to Hinchinbrook Island, offering hikes, waterfalls, and wildlife. Back at Pelorus, a private chef, expansive bar, and outdoor cooking facilities await, ensuring a bespoke luxury experience.

Owned by Chris Morris of the Morris Group, Pelorus Private Island elevates North Queensland’s tourism, offering privacy and personalized service. With bookings now open, the island is poised to become a coveted destination for discerning travelers worldwide.

Pelorus Private Island is now open to international and domestic travellers for bookings. Pricing starts from AUD $20,000 (approx. US$13.045) a night.
