The Courier-Mail - - FRONT PAGE -

PUMP­KIN P Is­land in Kep­pel Bay has been named as Aus­trala­sia’s Most Sus­tain­able H Ho­tel at the World Bou­tique Ho­tel Awards in Lon­don overnight. Own­ers Wayne and Lau­reth Rum­ble said they were “shocked and ex­cited” to have won the award.

“It’s great that we have been recog­nised for our hard work and com­mit­ment to the en­vi­ron­ment,” they said. “We have a won­der­ful team that help us strive for ex­cel­lence and give our guests the best pos­si­ble ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Win­ners were se­lected from more than 300 nom­i­nees from more than 80 coun­tries.

Pump­kin Is­land was pre­vi­ously known as XXXX Is­land when it was leased be­tween 2012-2015 to the Queens­land brewer. It is just over half a hectare and has five cot­tages, two beach bun­ga­lows and a beach bar. It caters for just 34 guests.
