Makepeace Island - Sir Richard Branson's Australian Home
Makepeace Island is the private home of Sir Richard Branson nestled amidst the beautiful Australian wilderness near Noosa, Queensland. Luxuriously accommodating up to 20 guests, the 25 acre heart shaped island features stunning open plan entertaining areas complete with antiques, silk furnishings and views of the spectacular pool. Exquisite gardens, carved volcanic boulder bathtubs and waterfall entry foyers offer a unique fusion of luxury, Australian bushland and wildlife, and authentic Balinese open air design. A stay at Makepeace Island is one of the most unique barefoot luxury experiences in Australia completely tailored to suit your needs and desires. The activities offered on the island are enough to keep even the most adventurous guest entertained with a full size tennis court, lagoon swimming pool, Hobie cats, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and equipment for wake-boarding, water skiing and river fishing. For a slightly slower pace guests can relax in the 15-person hot tub, enjoy a therapeutic or remedial massage, sip cocktails in the island bar or watch a DVD in the indoor theatre or outdoor moonlight cinema. Why not take a stroll on their island walking track taking in the wildlife including the resident kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and kookaburras.
