On Island
Discover Makepeace Island

The beauty of your Makepeace experience lies in the opportunity to explore as much or as little as you desire and our team will ensure the island’s facilities and activities are available any time for you to enjoy at your leisure.

Lagoon Pool

The centrepiece of the property is the 500,000 litre lagoon pool complete with water feature, dive spots and a 15 person heated spa. ‘Runway’ landing lights have been designed across the bottom of the pool for laps after dusk and representing Richard and Brett’s strong ties to aviation.

Island Bar

The Long Room is home to Makepeace’s beautiful ‘Island Bar’, games room and one of multiple open air and balcony dining areas available on the property. For guests with a musical ear The Long Room has a selection of musical instruments including piano, gamelan, bongos and didgeridoo.

Relaxation Wantilan

The large 2-storey wantilan overlooks the river and is a perfect place during the day to relax or have a ‘kip’ on a handcrafted rustic teak day bed, while at night it is the hub for indoor entertaining.

Hobie Cats, Kayaks and Paddle Boards

For something energetic, take out one of 3 Hobie Cats, 2 stand up paddle boards or 4 kayaks. If tempted the island circumnavigation will take you around an hour. Life jackets are provided.


Grab a fishing rod from the Boat House and cast a line. Beautiful Mangrove Jacks, Bream and Flathead are caught right of the Makepeace dock. Fishing rods and bait are provided and an esky of beverages is close at hand.


If tennis is your thing, you can play any time of the day or under night lights. All equipment is provided including a courtside esky of beverages as further incentive.

Sundowner River Cruise

Enjoy dinner and cocktails in a secluded area of the river or lakes aboard our launch, affectionately known as the ‘aircraft carrier’ or take in an impressive sunset with a champagne cruise aboard our environmentally friendly river ferry, Hannah or for a faster pace our comfortable 175hp Brig 645 speed boat.

Island Walking Trail

Why not take a stroll on our island walking track taking in the wildlife including our resident kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and kookaburras.

Outdoor Cinema

Watch a movie in the private theatre or for a unique open-air experience under the breathtaking southern stars we will convert the garden area to an outdoor cinema complete with popcorn and cosy lounges.

Masterchef and Wine Tasting

Our team, at your request, can host informative and mouth watering culinary classes and menu tastings for the foodies. They are also well versed in hosting ‘fun’ wine tasting and appreciation evenings in keeping with Makepeace’s personality.
