Australians can buy their own private tropical island with a fully furnished four-bedroom home on the Great Barrier Reef for $4.9million.

Victor Island is an eight-acre slice of paradise perfectly positioned one kilometre east from Hay Point Marina, south of Mackay, on Queensland’s stunning coastline.

Just a 20-minute boat ride from the mainland, the idyllic isle has a single off-the-plan home with multiple indoor and alfresco entertaining areas, a pool and spa, two bathrooms, carports and panoramic views of the Coral Sea.

The price of a home with similar features in inner Sydney, without furnishings and on a fraction of the land, can cost more than $5million.

Renovated by the current owners Paul and Megan Sullivan with a focus on sustainability, the property also features a solar farm, desalination plant, rainwater tanks, a vegetable garden, mango trees and laying hens.

Mr and Mrs Sullivan, who worked in forensic accounting and real estate respectively, used to own a boutique resort in Bali said Victor island is ‘one of the most beautiful places on earth’.
