Sojourn Retreats, a Queensland family owned company, operate a boutique collection of properties with a strong emphasis on giving people the opportunity to disconnect from their busy lives, and reconnect with the natural environment.

Our goal is to provide an exceptional guest experience, ideal for families, couples and friends, along the coast of the beautiful Great Barrier Reef.

The properties have all been designed for guests with a love of relaxed seaside living.

Set in inimitable locations, these iconic properties are a destination in their own right. Their intimate and indulgent nature will leave you feeling worlds away from reality.

The Sojourn Retreat collection located in the Southern Great Barrier Reef & Whitsunday region, include the privacy and serenity of exclusive island retreats Elysian Eco Retreat & Pumpkin Island, a unique hilltop birds eye view of the Keppel Islands Eden, and a serene beach house right on the waters edge  Sandcastles.

Over the past 16 years, our dedication to outstanding service, and you, our customer has ultimately seen our ever expanding group grow to include this unique collection of exquisite self catering seaside properties. Our future, also reliant on our staff and our unique properties, will continue to see expansion as demand for tranquil escapes increases.
