It is less than 10 mins drive to Main beach and you only drive past 3 houses then the bush to get there. Main Beach has great fishing and surfing and is perfect for long walks on the beach and a swim. The property is only 15-20 mins drive to Point Lookout and Amity townships and their countless stunning beaches and 3 mins to Dunwich Township, bay beaches and the vehicle and passenger ferries.

It is a beautiful 20 min bush walk (or less than 5 min drive) to Lake Bummeria (Brown Lake); a stunning spiritual natural tea tree lake that leaves your skin feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom. 5 mins drive to the fun, relaxed, family friendly NSI golf course, 7 mins to Blue Lake.

This home is all about connecting with nature, peace and tranquillity. Boasting breathtaking day & night views of Moreton Bay’s spectacular turquoise waters & Brisbane city’s sparkling lights from most room (including 3 main bedrooms, lounge and kitchen).

You will enjoy sitting back and unwinding whilst experiencing the most amazing sunset vistas from the undercover outdoor living area which is equipped with a 4m table, large wicker lounge and huge 6 burner BBQ with wok (BBQ gas included).

On a clear day you can see the Glasshouse Mountains to the North and as far south as the Tweed volcanics; on wild days you can sit and watch storms up to 500 kms away. The view changes by the hour due to tides changing and the suns angle. There is always boating action on the bay to watch and you can see the planes landing and taking off from the Brisbane airport.

Where you’ll be

Dunwich, Queensland, Australia

LAKE BUMMIERA or BROWN LAKE is 2 Km door to door; an easy 5 min drive or a beautiful 20 minute bush walk arriving at the stunning fresh water Tea Tree lake. It is a truly special and spiritual place and is a must do experience. A swim will relax your mind and body whilst the Tea Tree leaves your skin smooth as a baby's bottom.

MAIN BEACH is less than 10 minutes' (pass just 3 houses then bushland) drive with 32km of stunning white sandy beach which is great for 4WDing (you can drive the full length of the beach if you purchase a permit for your vehicle), swimming, surfing, fishing, jet skiing and long walks etc.

DUNWICH TOWNSHIP is less than 3 minutes' drive and features a fantastic historical museum which is well worth exploring. Learn all about Straddie's diverse and interesting history including Quandamooka indigenous culture, ship wrecks, Straddie's leper colony, benevolent asylum, whaling station and WW II bomber and submarine watch post. Another interesting place is the University of Queensland's Moreton Bay Research Station (MBRS) which conducts world class marine and environmental research.

Dunwich has all the amenities you will need during your stay including a supermarket, pharmacy, butcher, bakery, post office, newsagent, Quandamooka art gallery, cafes and take away eateries. The Dunwich foreshore has some beautiful calm shallow water beaches (eg. Adams Beach which is ideal for swims with small children) and beautiful bay walks (eg Polka Point).

NSI GOLF COURSE is less than 5 mins drive or a pleasant walk away. It features an 18 hole sand golf course with the most relaxed feel and is family friendly (also has free putt putt golf), affordable and teeming with wildlife such as kangaroos on the greens plus the rare and magnificent glossy black cockatoo's.

POINT LOOKOUT is a 15-20 minute drive and features great patrolled surf beaches the spectacular Gorge Walk and some nice cafes. A Gelato from the Point Lookout Gelato Bar whilst taking in the stunningly rugged coast and watching passing animals (eg. whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles and rays) is a must do whilst on Straddie!

There is plenty more to experience whilst on Straddie, far too much to mention here. There are some great websites with further Straddie info if you search including things to do, getting here etc. Once guests book on Air BnB we send a confirmation message on Air BnB's message system, which has links to great Straddie Info resources.
