Bedarra Island House

Located in: Bedarra Island
If you are looking to unwind and escape the pressures of daily life then the peace, tranquillity and glorious seclusion of Bedarra Island is the perfect place.
Located approximately 4 kilometres off the coast of tropical Far North Queensland, halfway between Cairns and Townsville, Bedarra Island is an exclusive privately owned tropical island on the Great Barrier Reef.

Bedarra is the "mother" island in the family group of islands discovered by Captain James Cook in 1770.

The inspiring surrounds became the home of one of the original beachcombers, artist Noel Wood. Noel lived a most idyllic lifestyle here for nearly 60 years and several of his original artworks are on display in the Bedarra Island House.

The peaceful Bedarra Island House has been a place for artists and chefs to create, couples to indulge themselves and families to enjoy "quality time" together.
This stunning pole home has 360 degree panoramic views. The back deck has views over Dunk Island and mainland Australia, the front deck views over the Family Group of islands south to Hinchinbrook Island and the endless horizon!

The home is eco friendly, totally private and secluded.

Amenities include:

Queen bedroom
Double bedroom
Mezzanine floor, reading lounge
Kitchen: gas oven and solar fridge
Outdoor shower with views over the Family Group of islands
Three fantastic decks
Linen supplied
DVD / Stereo with iPod connection


The things to do on this tropical island are really up to you!

Walk along the rocks that line the edge of the secluded beaches.
Bring your snorkelling gear and discover the tropical sea life that reside in these unspoilt waters.
Take an easy climb to the top of the rocky headland and look out for dolphins cruising through the Family Islands.
Walk to the lookout where the horizon seems endless.
Paddle in a kayak around the bay or around the island. There are two stable kayaks provided free of charge.
The warm and protected waters provide pleasant year round swimming.
Grab a glass of wine and some binoculars and sit back on the front deck to view the abundant birdlife that inhabit this tropical island.
Lie back with a book on any of the three decks. Your background can be the Hinchinbrook Channel, the mainland, Dunk Island or the ships sailing by, what a choice!
You can fish, either from the beach or rocks or for those that want a 'hard on' fishing experience you can charter a boat to take you to the big fish!
Boats are also available for charter to visit other nearby National Park Islands for picnics, snorkelling and diving.
Just relax!

General Information

Food and Beverage Supplies

There are no shops on Bedarra so all your supplies will need to be taken with you. We can assist you with your orders or provide you with local suppliers contact details. The suppliers will pack and the supplies will travel with you to the island.

What to wear?

As you will transfer from Mission Beach by boat you’ll need to wade through shallow waters and assist with luggage/groceries from/to the beach, boat and house…it is suggested that you have shoes that are easily removed and maybe a change of clothes eg shorts. In winter the evenings can be cool so please pack some warm clothes.

What to pack?

Basically as little as possible. A few casual clothes and one pair of shoes, maybe some sandals or slides…don’t bring towels and linen as the house is fully stocked. Do bring some of your favourite books, magazines, hat, camera, sunscreen, toothpaste, Ipod etc. If possible do not bring lots of little bags, but a duffle style bag that is easy to manage. Consider packing a small back pack and reef shoes for outdoor exploration.
