About Lorraine Buntine
I live in Darwin, Northern Territory. I grew up in the cold country of Cooma NSW, left there at 17 and travelled round Australia and living in various parts of Qld, WA, and NT. Finally settling down permanently in the Territory 35 years ago. Our businesses were in the NT but we loved QLD for holidays. When not travelling overseas - we holidayed in Queensland.
Lorraine Buntine purchased this in 2005
Why Lorraine Buntine chose Bedarra Island
We often travelled to QLD and when we saw the place advertised for sale ( it was very run down)we put in an offer and purchased the place. It was very run down and it was a real challenge to renovate a house on an island. The house is totally environmentally friendly. It is a place that couples can enjoy a romantic break, or friends can enjoy buddymoons and families can enjoy a holiday without the crowds. For people who enjoy their privacy, Bedarra is the place to be.
Have your chance to live the dream on a tropical island escape.
What makes this unique
The island has resident caretakers to meet you at the boat on arrival and assist with your luggage and supplies to the house. They will give you an orientation of the house and island. They will also assist you with your departure.
There are no shops on Bedarra so you have to take all your supplies with you. There is a large supermarket and liquor store in Mission Beach (this is where you catch the boat) where you can do your own shopping - or this can be arranged for you ( 20% surcharge on cost of items)
