Pelorus Private Island is the latest jewel in the Northern Escape Collection crown, offering travellers an utterly secluded and indulgent hideaway amongst the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef.
Embraced by pristine waters, superb fringing reefs, and a lush verdant hillside, Pelorus Private Island boasts a naturally isolated single, sprawling residence featuring four luxurious suites, making it the only luxury private island residence in the region.
Accessed via a 30-minute helicopter journey from Townsville or a private superyacht, guests are invited to indulge in relaxation and barefoot adventure with a range of bespoke activities on offer including diving and snorkelling, guided jet ski and sea bob tours, reef fishing, access to the Museum of Underwater Art (MOUA) and boat charters. The island also provides access to the untouched wilderness of Hinchinbrook Island, Australia’s largest island national park, home to rainforest-clad hiking trails, cascading waterfalls, abundant wildlife and diverse flora.
Morris Group Founder and Executive Chairman, Chris Morris said Pelorus Private Island will bring something incredibly unique to Tropical North Queensland.
“Pelorus Private Island is a rare offering on the Great Barrier Reef, where guests can enjoy unparalleled levels of privacy and personalised
service, in a location that seamlessly combines nature with luxury,”
Chris Morris, Executive Chairman, Morris Group
“The intimate dwelling is best shared with family and friends looking for a truly memorable getaway on the reef together. The secluded and highly private nature of the residence will attract a calibre of premium travellers not often seen in this part of the world.”
According to Tourism Australia’s Global Future of Tourism Demand Research, luxury travellers averaged 5.1 trips in the past five years with over one-third having taken five or more trips during this period. These travellers spend more when they travel and travel more frequently than most other traveller types.
“Pelorus Private Island aligns with the growing consumer demand for ultra-luxe products that offer exclusivity, privacy and remoteness while allowing them to connect and spend time with loved ones,” said Mr Morris.
With architecture and interiors designed by Dubois Design, Pelorus Private Island is currently under construction and is due to open to international and domestic travellers in November 2023.
