I have recently discovered that this small island in the Noosa River is less than 1km from my home and I previously did not not of its existence. Maybe Sir Richard might extend an invitation to the locals to pay him a visit.

Makepeace Island is a small heart shaped island resort located in the Noosa River on Australia's Sunshine Coast. The island is currently owned by Virgin Australia (formerly known as Virgin Blue) founding partners, Brett Godfrey and Sir Richard Branson. The island is Sir Richard Branson's Australian home and can hold up to 22 guests accommodated in three 2-bedroom villas and a 4 bedroom Bali House wing. The property has a tennis court, theatre, two-storey Balinese Wantilan, 500,000-litre pool and indoor bar and dining area.

23/11/18 - Update seen on local TV station last night. Work has just been completed on a multi-million dollar update on Richard Branson's Noosa hideaway. You can now rent accommodation from $10,000.00 to $25,000.00 per night, Any takers??

Glad you decided to move back - moving is stressful and you made the right choice. We'll not be moving again as we've found a wonderful community and country area here, so we're staying put. Catch you later :-000

Pammi

Yes, sure do Bubble. I fact, when my husband and I first moved from Brisbane to Perth in 1989, until we bought a house we first rented a townhouse in Morley which is the suburb next to Noranda. I do remember it as being a very attractive suburb. Our house was actually in Wanneroo which is in the northern area of Perth and we lived there for twenty-five years. I really loved living in W.A. but in 2014 we came over to the Sunshine Coast for a holiday and I got an overwhelming urge to move back to Queensland and after talking it over, that's what we did. ♥♥

Bubble

Keep meaning to ask you, Pammi, my cousins live in Noranda, just outside Perth - do you know it ?

Pammi

Like your style, girl. ☺☺

Bubble

I'll probably spend the next 15 years washing up in the kitchen !! :-))

Pammi

Hope you enjoy your stay, Bubble and don't forget to show due deference by tugging your forelock. They might then be inclined to offer you a 0.5% discount. Ha! Ha! Ho! Ho! Ho! ♥

Bubble

Well, Pammi , if I'd read it properly, myself, I would have realised it was Richard Branson's pad, I thought the receptionist was rather posh when I called !! Dinna fash yourself, we're all in the same boat :-000

Pammi

Wow, what a Dodo I am, I have just realised that I had already added this information as per above. Some days I need to be saved from myself. Dah!!! ☺☺☺☺☺☺

Bubble

Have just booked up for 2 weeks on the island treating my 10 kids and 30 best friends. No expense spared, says I - all donations gratefully received, Pammi. :-000

Pammi

Good morning, Bubble. I saw on the local news a couple of weeks ago that the island has just had a multi-million dollar upgrade and is now available for bookings. The price tag quite took my breath away - $10,000 to $25,000 per night depending on how many people in the party. Looks like I will have to defer my booking until I have saved a few more pennies. Ha! Ha! ☺☺

Bubble

Love the island - they sure do keep the gardeners busy with their shears ! - thanks Pammi :-)))

honeylemon

I never knew that Pammi, thank you for that info!☻

Pammi

Hi honeylemon. It really is a very lovely island in the middle of the river, isn't it? Would you believe about ten day ago Justin Bieber actually stayed there for a couple of days following his concert in Brisbane (Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland and approx. 130 kms south of here). Anyway, there were many pictures of him in the newspaper as well as on the Internet showing him mouthing off and making rude gestures to all the photographers who had gathered on the riverside to hopefully catch a glimpse of him. I get that he must be sick to death of being hounded by photographers but as any one in the limelight surely knows, these days it comes with the territory. ♥☺♥

honeylemon

That is so cool. It reminds me of my love for the earth.

irmachac

Yes, thank you, for a while we go out with the dog, the sun is shining, we need to take advantage of it .

Pammi

Irena, I hope you enjoyed your leisurely Sunday lunch. As for me, I am off to bed with my latest library book for a bit of a read before sleep catches up with me. Tomorrow morning I play mahjong for three hours which I enjoy very much (though I'm not as good a player as I would like to be). Never mind, it is a lot of fun. ♥♥

irmachac

Good day to you Pammi, now You are sleeping and we'll be in two hours to have lunch :-) For us it is now 10, 15 I wish you a beautiful Sunday. With best regards Irena

Pammi

Yes, I agree with you, Irena, it is very pretty. We had some lovely rain late yesterday so today (Sunday) is finally going to be a bit cooler. Yay!!!! Oops, it's now 7.00 am, time for breakfast. ♥♥

irmachac

A very beautiful island in the shape of a heart. Have a nice day Pammi.

Hi Mary. Thank you for your kind thoughts. We have just got home from Eric having x-rays and also ultrasound on his shoulder. He was told he has a tear in the shoulder so don't know if that's serious or not. He sees our GP again tomorrow so no doubt she will let him know. He is supposed to start six weeks of rehabilitation this coming Tuesday on this shoulder so it remains to be seen if that will be a go. Watch this space!! ♥

I am so sorry for both you and your birthday. Also, I hope your wait at the Emergency Room is not as long as ours it takes forever to be seen. I guesss if you are bleeding that much they take you right in. That is so dangerous with those blood thinners. It just have been very frightening. I hope he gets better real soon and you can have a do over for your birthday. Blessings. Mary

Pammi

Good morning, Janet. Yep, finally met up with Neville, Marge and Barry on Tuesday at Coolum Beach. We spent a most enjoyable couple of hours in their company and you are right, they are such lovely people. It is so nice to actually meet Jigidi people face to face and they are really looking forward to seeing you and Julian once again. ☺♥☺

Pammi

You are welcome, Bernine. It really is an attractive island, isn't it? However, I am not expecting an invitation any time in the near future. Darn!!! ♥

BERNINE

Pammi thank you for this beautiful puzzle .

Pammi

Hi Janet. One of the items I read on the internet says that guests are transported to the island by boat or helicopter though I don't see a helipad anywhere. Maybe it's the fold-up kind. When you're that rich you can do anything I guess. Ha! Ha! I also read somewhere about the rates. Suffice to say that I doubt I could afford so much as a toehold on the island. Yes, next Tuesday (2 Aug.) we will be meeting up with Neville and Marge and I am really looking forward to it. Have a great evening. ♥♥

WOW! Maybe all the Aussie Jigidiers could have a holiday there, Pammi. I think it has to have been created that shape, maybe with dredging, as we used to holiday at Noosa quite a lot and I certainly don't remember any heart shaped island. I'm surprised there's no helipad.

Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Enjoy the visit from Marge, Nev and B...Barry. They are wonderful people. Hugs ♥
