Other things to note
There is no road between us and the ocean so you can relax on the couch and take in the ocean view, or step outside the front door on to a quite beach, where the fishing is good.
From our location it's only a 5 minute walk to the local shop for supplies, takeaway, fuel and Post Office or to the local Restaurant and a newly opened coffee shop.
A 5 minute walk takes you to the start of a bush track through the Redden Island nature reserve and the Barron river, the area is renowned for it's bird life and plant variety.
