Daydream Island rumours denied
DAYDREAM Island is not for sale, according to the owner Vaughan Bullivant.
National media reports this week have suggested the island was for sale with a price tag of $90 million.
However, an island spokesperson told the Whitsunday Times that Daydream Island Resort and Spa was not currently for sale.
Daydream is the closest island to Airlie Beach.
It is owned by flamboyant businessman Vaughan Bullivant who previously owned Nature's Own Vitamin company.
He bought the island for a reported $12.5 million in September 2000 and has since spent millions of dollars on the resort.
In a statement released this week, Daydream said Vaughan Bullivant had no association with real estate agent Richard Van Hoff who had been quoted in national media reports.
Mr Bullivant is a former Australian water ski champion who almost lost his life in a ski accident when he was just 20 years old in 1967.
