Pelorus Island

Pelorus Island is located 800 meters north of Orpheus Island near Townsville. The secluded island is the most northern in the Great Palm Island group and is surrounded by spectacular fringing reef accessible straight from the beach.

Project overview

Pelorus Island will soon be home to a $6 million private boutique retreat that will help attract visitors and generate jobs for the region.  

With funding from the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) Island Resorts Rejuvenation Fund, the new development will house new renewable energy infrastructure and water supply infrastructure.

Our support will ensure the Island retreat can offer a world-class experience to visitors while protecting the environment at the same time.
