Things to Do and Places to See
The world famous "Gutter" is right outside your front door. The kids can enjoy beachcombing, building sand castles and hunt for soldier crabs at low tide then swim in the pristine calm waters at high tide. For the parents who have been hard at it fishing from Reeders Point (5 minutes from the house) or squidding from the tinny, it is the perfect place to watch the sun set and have a few quiet ales while the kids play.
The ocean and surf side of Moreton Island is only a five minute drive from Kooringal. You can climb sand dunes, visit the Mirapools or go snorkelling at the Tangalooma Wrecks.
If you are feeling more adventurous, you can head North for the day and visit the Champagne pools, the Blue Hole and the Lighthouse. Or even climb Mount Tempest.
The ever popular Gutter Bar is within walking distance with a great selection of local seafood of the menu and a well stocked bar.
Moreton Beach House's electricity is supplied by solar power and a generator but you still need to be aware of your electricity usage. Our water supply is a combination of bore and rain water.
We have a friendly property manager who can assist if you have any issues during your stay.
