A coastal Victorian island retreat once owned by pop superstar Kylie Minogue has been sold.

It is the farm holding she owned between 2005 and 2010, not her residential retreat, Beauciel.

Set in Westernport Bay, the environmentally sensitive French Island is about twice the size of nearby Phillip Island, but has just 120 permanent residents.

It is only accessible by helicopter, plane or boat.

The 71 hectare elevated farmland property, that comes with building permits, was sold by Minogue for $530,000 in 2010. She had paid $292,000 in 2005.

There are four dams, a private billabong, large established gum trees and natural bushland, excellent pasture, and orchard.

There are koalas too.

Phil Bock at Century 21 Home Port secured the sale of the Farm Road property on behalf of Janet Towns, the widow of the late medical microbiologist Dr David Lesie.

Minogue's nearby Beauciel home last sold at $875,000 in 2016.

Minogue had paid $280,000 in 2003 and sold it in 2009 for $1.02 million.
