Brampton Island Resort:

Brampton Island Redevelopment In June 2010 Brampton Enterprises Pty Ltd purchased Brampton Island Resort from Voyagers/GPT. Apart from some refurbishment activity, no major works have been undertaken on guest facilities at Brampton Island Resort since the 1980’s, but that is all about to change. Brampton Enterprises Pty Ltd is pleased to announce that it will close Brampton Island Resort effective January 24, 2011 to undergo a major upgrade program. The proposed program will lift facilities to world class standards which will include enlarging and completely refitting guest suites, providing international standard restaurant facilities, a guests library, a spa and health centre and upgrading the rockpool to incorporate latest trend initiatives. When Brampton Island Resort reopens some time after December 2011 it will offer guest facilities and a holiday experience equal to the finest resorts in the world and will particularly compete with boutique high end resorts in the Asia Pacific region. Still Closed as far as I can gather. Brampton Island Resort
