Hope Island is probably the most developed of all of the islands featured, Captain Louis Hope arrived in the area in the mid 1800s and spent 20 years developing sugar plantations around Moreton Bay. Due to his great influence in the region, he was granted 1800 acres of land, part of which is now known as Hope Island.
Although various families lived on it over the next 150 years, it wasn’t until the dawn of the new millennium that development really started and turned it into the Hope Island we know today.
With a population nearing 9,000, Hope Island portrays the mantra of home as holiday featuring tennis academies, a 250 berth marina, a world class golf course plus many other luxury amenities.
