Bedarra Island, North Queensland
Bedarra Island is located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, 4 km off the coast of Mission Beach. It sits halfway between Townsville and Cairns, which both have airports. Bedarra Island provides a more secluded alternative to the Whitsundays accommodation to the south and Cairns accommodation to the north. It has no roads, no cars, no day-trippers, and a strictly limited number of guests. It's paradise without all the people!
East Bedarra Island Retreat is situated at the opposite end of the island from Bedarra Island Resort, ensuring total privacy.
"I have never been more relaxed and content in my life. This has been my absolute dream paradise."
