Just off the Tropical North Queensland coast, midway between Townsville and Cairns, lies Bedarra Island - a part of the Family Group of Islands. Bedarra Island offers unspoilt rainforests and palm-fringed beaches, where the clear blue waters of the Coral Sea meet pristine white sand. Bedarra is Australia's most exclusive island - boasting a resort designed to blend in with the beauty of the natural surroundings and accommodating a maximum of 32 guests at a time. When it comes to relaxing in glorious seclusion, Bedarra Island is the perfect retreat. Guests rarely encounter their fellow escapees as they explore the pristine rainforest and bask in the sun on the secluded beaches. This private island retreat provides many leisure activities that take advantage of the natural setting and is perfectly positioned close to the Great Barrier Reef. Guests can board a fast catamaran for a day trip to explore the wonders of the reefs, or charter yachts for sailing expeditions around the picturesque waters, visiting neighbouring islands including Dunk and Timana. One of the most romantic ways to spend the day on Bedarra is to take a delicious gourmet picnic, complete with chilled champagne, and venture off in a motorised dinghy to find a private beach - and there are so many to choose from.
