Australian party resort to the rich and famous falls into disrepair as locals ...

An island resort where Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt once partied is falling into ruin despite still being advertised online as a luxury destination.

Friends star Jen and her then husband Brad were guests on Double Island off Australia's far north Queensland coast when fellow star Keanu Reeves threw a lavish and infamous New Year's Eve party there.

Keanu was Down Under filming the Matrix movies back in late 2001 when he organised the lavish $200,000 (US$150,000) bash, which was attended by a host of famous faces including Matt Damon, Drew Barrymore and Kiefer Sutherland.

The celebrity party featured a huge firework display on New Year's Eve which shocked locals who had no idea the island was packed with stars.

But now the resort, which is said to feature 24 luxury bungalows, and facilities for up to 40 guests, has seen better days.

A visitor to the island who had paddled there on a kayak with a friend told Daily Mail Australia: 'Basically, the island is a dump. It's become a terrible state. No A-lister in their right mind would set foot on the place. 

'Staying there would be more like a "Survivor" challenge than a luxury getaway. The only welcoming thing there right now is the dog!'

Safari-style tents meant for eco-friendly 'glamping' stays are covered in mould and moss, while detritus including fuel containers, washing paraphernalia, dirty towels and abandoned tools litter the area. 

Visitors to the island are warned not to intrude on the land beyond where the tide reaches and told cameras are in use.

But it is still possible to see one apparently abandoned home where rainforest plants are beginning to encroach into its once-pristine garden; its plunge pool is drained of water and a bedroom balcony is unfit dished without a guard rail.
