About Makepeace Island
Makepeace Island was named after former resident and colourful local character Hannah “Shotgun” Makepeace. In 2009, Makepeace Island was developed as a private retreat for family and friends of the owners, Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Australia co-founder Brett Godfrey. In July 2011 its doors were opened for exclusive use hire allowing others to enjoy the tranquility of this very special place. In 2018 Radek Sali, Chair and Founder of Light Warrior, an investment group that invests in businesses that are socially responsible & environmentally conscious, became the third joint Owner. Prominent Queensland business entrepreneurs and philanthropists Cathie Reid & Stuart Giles, co-founders of the Icon Cancer Care Group and the Epic Good Foundation accepted an invitation to join the Makepeace Ownership family in late 2019.
Makepeace Island combines modern contemporary living with traditional tropical island design creating a tranquil environment that is in complete harmony with nature. Our latest refurbishment in 2018 was overseen by June Robinson Scott, interior designer for Necker Island and The Branson Estate, Moskito Island.
At Makepeace Island we act as custodians of this pristine environment and seek to minimise our footprint on the environment. Organic produce, our own chickens and beehives, vegan friendly amenities, recycling and a wastewater purification system. Our farm to table concept is at the heart of everything we do. Our produce and amenities sourced regionally to support the local community and we work with partners who practice the same degree of commitment to long term sustainability goals.
