Iconic Queensland Island Bedarra Island

People travel from right across the world to experience Bedarra Island, and enjoy exclusivity here.

This privately owned island, is just 5 kms off the coast, a little further off the beaten track. This get-shipwrecked-here-style island, requires a little extra effort to reach, but the relative isolation means you’ll enjoy your sundowners alone. No day tourists here, or Covid19.

There are just 7 private homes on East Bedarra, and BarefootOnBedarra is unique, as it is a magnificent example of craftmanship, with high ceilings, and beautiful timbers. Built for world famous photographer, Peter Lik, the home has fabulous views.

How quickly can you get there?

Cairns by chopper direct to the island, or a Water Taxi direct to the beach. Easy.

What’s it like? fabulous barefoot experience. Isolated beaches, picnics on a private beach, go snorkelling, canoeing.Warm water 25Cdegrees, relax on your own deck, with the SE trades just wafting across a quiet ocean.

Waiting for you

Fishing out on the reef

Just head to the dawn sun. It’s the measure of a man to go 42 kms offshore, and catch fish after fish. Nothing comes close to bagging Coral Trout off shore. They are massive.
Caretakers can set up the coals for you, to bake your freshly caught fish.

Mindfulness at BarefootOnBedarra

Relaxing, watching the seaeagle with a shiny fish in his beak. What a great sight, with a wing span of over a metre.

Sunbirds flitting in the early morning, just showing that life can be so magnificent

And the day, well, it is without comparison. You be the judge

Mind and Body renewal

Just a few days on this magnificent island, where no one can see us, and yet we can see the world. The balconies are like video screens, of an ever changing vista. As day turns to dusk, such a relaxing and beautiful day, draws to a close. We are over brimming with the beauty .

Melbourne Weather

It”s now wintry and high wind conditions in Melbourne. Cold as ever, just off the South Pole. Spoil yourself and book into BarefootOnBedarra, 25-30degrees. The hail today at Wonthaggi is inches deep. Be the one to escape life down south, and choose to rejuvenate yourself on a private island in North Queensland. Bedarra Island.
