Incredible private island on Great Barrier Reef for sale

If you've ever dreamed of owning a private island, now could be your chance.

Victor Island on the Great Barrier Reef has hit the market at $5.5 million, and it's more affordable than some waterfront homes in Brisbane and Sydney.

The eight-acre oasis offers incredible views of the Coral Sea, along with a four-bedroom solar powered house and caretakers cottage.

Also included are two boats to help residents make the ride into mainland Mackay.

"It's very rare," Barbara Wolveridge from Sotheby's International Realty told 9News.

"I've been in the business for 30 years and this is the first time I've actually had an opportunity to sell an island.

Owner Meg Sullivan has decided now is the time to part ways with the island after owning it for five years.

She's hoping someone else can experience the life she's lived.

"It's the freedom of living on the island where you can do what you want, when you want," she said.

"If you want to catch a fish for dinner you go and throw a line in."

If you're interested you might need to act quickly with the property generating interest from buyers across the country and around the world.

"We've got people lining up to come and see it," Ms Wolveridge said.

Victor Island is for sale for $5.5 million.
