Getting Here

Quoin Island Retreat is a privately owned, tranquil retreat covering 10 hectares of island habitat, and situated only 5 kilometres from Gladstone, on the Central Queensland costal region of Australia. With access to the Great Barrier Reef and all its natural wonders, we are in the heart of this World Heritage listed site. Quoin Island is a walking island with our miniature train and rail system transporting you back to yester year as we deliver you to and from the private jetty and our retreat.

Getting to Quoin Island

Our event manager will arrange your personal transfer to the island via private boat or helicopter flight. Just a 15 minute boat journey from the Gladstone Marina, aboard one of our purpose built Quoin Island Retreat vessels, you’ll enjoy the Gladstone Harbour on your short cruise. Our fleet includes a 12 metre catamaran, plus alternative options for smaller parties or transport of goods. Helicopter flights can be arranged upon request, and may include a scenic tour of the harbour before landing.

Getting to Gladstone

Gladstone is located in Central Queensland and lies on the Tropic of Capricorn, approximately 530 kilometres north of Brisbane. We are a one hour flight north from Brisbane, or one hour drive south of Rockhampton. This region is scattered with National Parks and is also well known as the gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef, providing access to fantastic world class snorkelling. Regular flights to Gladstone are available via Brisbane with either Qantas or Virgin Australia. Once at Gladstone, you have a choice of travel options to get to the Gladstone Marina for your pick-up, or we can arrange your own personal transfer direct from the airport.

“I’d like to thank Richard, Amanda and the team for organising and hosting my amazing birthday party. It was such a pleasure to have someone else do all the planning and hard work. The decorations you organised were amazing with all the special effect lighting and themeing, it certainly had the WOW factor and set the mood from the moment we arrived. We were very impressed with the flexibility with the catering arrangements, food was delicious and presentation superb. Everyone who attended raved about the party. There’s nowhere else that offers what you do."

"My business GTC held a Team Planning Day at Quoin Island Retreat. I just can't speak highly enough about how professionally Richard and his team ran things. Richard had the day running like clockwork, we chose our meals (which were the best quality), had a conference room with water views and we even had the pleasure of feeding turtles, patting wallabies and Boof the dog. If you are organising an event, DON’T go out of town...go to Quoin."
