After the destruction of the island at the hands of cyclone Yasi, the island was reborn as a ecological tourist attraction for honeymooners. The renovated honeymoon destination takes care of its local flora and fauna, while also minimizing its carbon footprint. Yet, being ecological in nature, the island doesn't pull back on luxury. Guest will be offered only the best, with a personal touch.

All building and cottages have been built while keeping efficiency in mind. The buildings allow plenty of sunshine and cross ventilation, perfect for the islands tropical weather. In addition, all electrical appliance used have a energy efficiency ratings of four and a half stars. Any area that requires artificial lighting are fitted with 10w lighting. Water is heated by a solar heater and state of the art solar panels and batteries are used which require little maintenance.

Water is drawn from a fresh water spring located on the island, in addition, rainwater harvesting is practised heavily. The water is filtered in a large reservoir which is filled with water lillies and other water plants that act as filters. A bio filter is used in the drainage and septic tank in order to greatly reduce the damage waste water might cause to the nearby Great Barrier Reef.

All garbage produced by the island and its guest are transported to a mainland recycling center. Recycling is practised heavily on the island thereby reducing the amount of waste produced. In order to reduce the environmental impact on the island and the nearby reefs, all laundering is done on the mainland. The island has become the most ecological and romantic honeymoon destination in QLD.
