Guests have access to the whole house. Once you arrive the whole place is yours for the time of your stay.

Coochiemudlo really is one of Brisbane's best secrets. A little hideaway only 35kms south east of Brisbane city and only 10 minutes by passenger ferry or 20 minutes by car barge to this little island paradise.
Relax, unwind and forget about the hustle and bustle of daily life and slip into Coochie's relaxed island time. There is so much to do......or not do.
Water sports, bike riding, bushwalking, artist retreats, family time to remember forever.......and keep coming back..... or time out to read a great book or watch the sunset over a glass and a BBQ.

It's a unique place that will create memories and keep you coming back for more.
Coochiemudlo Island is only 35 kms south east of Brisbane city. It's a short 10 minute ride on the passenger ferry and a 5 minute walk to Driftwood Beach Holiday House. Most people get around the island by walking or hiring a bike.
Ferries run from 5am to 11:30pm every half an hour all week. 6:15am -11pm on weekends. There are multiple trips a day via the car barge Amity Trader, just be sure to book in advance. Guests can take the car barge over to the island and use their car on the island for their stay or if you travel light you can leave your car on the mainland and travel over via the passenger ferry Note: most locals use luggage or trolleys on wheels.
There are buses to the City, Carindale Shopping Centre and the local Victoria Point Shopping Centre, right from the ferry terminal.
If you want to be spoilt and be like a local you can have a car on both sides:
Other things to note
Come fully equipped with all your food and drinks. There is no shopping centre on the island or fuel. We have a corner store/kiosk that sells a small amount of emergency supplies and takeaway food or Red Rock Cafe for eating out.
Lastly should the need arise, in the case of an medical emergency the island has volunteer, fully trained first responders and an ambulance, just dial 000.
