‘Definitely, yes, he is interested,’ a spokesman for Dr Edelsten said yesterday. ‘He absolutely inspected it. He and Brynne inspected it together.’

Double Island is described as one of Australia’s most exclusive islands: ‘An almost untouched tropical oasis fringed by pristine white sands and vivid blue ocean.’

A 10-minute boat ride from Palm Cove, the island features a small, exclusive resort consisting of 12 villas, a lagoon-style 25m heated swimming pool and spa, conference facilities, library, gymnasium, restaurant, movie room, and a games room.
