Other things to note
There may be occasional noise in the yard as we do have 2 children, however if guests are in the Kite Shed we will endeavour to keep this to a minimum.

For overseas visitors Australia has a myriad of cute critters that sometimes go bump in the night. Please don't be alarmed by the occasional noise of bats or the plonk of a possum jumping from trees onto the roof. Its all part of the Aussie experience!

LOCAL ACTIVITES & ATTRACTIONS
Explore the pristine, white sand beaches and clear waters across the bay at Moreton Island - Tangalooma.

From June to November every year, humpback whales undertake a 10,000km annual migration from Antarctica to have a babymoon holiday along the Queensland coast. As the humpback whales make their way up the coast, they come in close to North Stradbroke Island and Moreton Island, making land-based whale watching from the lookouts possible – just bring binoculars for a closer look.

Jump on the water with Brisbane Whale Watching from Redcliffe or the Tangalooma Whale Watch Cruises to see whales do their thing in the Moreton Bay Marine Park.

Being able to travel is such a gift, and something we as a family are so fortunate to be able to do. Exploring the great expanse of the world has some incredible memories for us, and this has still been possible now with kids. But what makes these experiences is the people you meet along the way and how they still weave into your lives years later. However there is no place like home, and we are so fortunate to live in such an amazing community....4017

During your stay
The Kite Shed is situated a few metres from the main house. We live in the main house within the property so we are on site most of the time. We are happy to give as much help and advice as you require but equally happy to leave you in peace.

We lead busy lives raising our two children however we also are at home most evenings and on weekends. Our children are well behaved however from time to time will create some noise. If you are wanting absolute solitude and will be bothered by noise - this is perhaps not the most ideal choice. In saying that, we are most hospitable and love entertaining and look forward to welcoming you.
