Situated a mere hour from Mackay, Temple Island boasts breathtaking views of the Great Barrier Reef. With its vast 8.7-hectare leasehold, you’ll have plenty of space to immerse yourself in the island’s beauty. Surrounded by the Cape Palmerston National Park, this secluded paradise is a true haven.

One of the standout features of Temple Island is its very own 1100-meter private airstrip, making access a breeze for visitors or if you enjoy playing backyard cricket with your mates.

The recently renovated four-bedroom high set home is perfectly positioned on the highest point of the island to maximise views.


The owner, Mr. Henry, who has cherished this property for the past seven years, reluctantly decided to let it go. He wishes for someone who will appreciate and love the island and its marine life, just as he did. As the sole occupant of the island, you’ll have the privilege of immersing yourself in the serene beauty of nature.

With its prime location just 60 kilometres southeast of Mackay, Temple Island offers both tranquility and accessibility.
