Central to Brisbane, Gold and Sunshine Coasts
Our house is located in a quiet leafy street, only five minutes from the Wynnum waterfront and park lands. This beautiful esplanade boasts a wading pool and water park playground, walking and cycling paths, fish cafes, free electric barbecues and Sunday markets. It is adjacent to the Manly marina, home to Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, Wynnum Manly Yacht Club and Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club, and gateway to Moreton Bay including historic Saint Helena Island.
From here, it is an easy drive or ride to much that South East Queensland offers. We are handy to transport (buses and trains), only five minutes to the motorway linking both north and south, 30 minutes to the city and 20 minutes to Brisbane Airport. The Gold Coast, with it's Theme Parks (Dream World, Whitewater World, Movie World, Sea World and Wet and Wild), great swimming and surfing beaches is under an hour to the south while the Sunshine Coast with its equally fabulous beaches along with Australia Zoo and Underwater World are a similar distance north.
Southbank Parklands is Brisbane's 'must-do'. It includes extensive parklands for walking and relaxing, food to suit every budget including free barbeques, free swimming and water-play, theatres, art galleries and museums. All this is practically on your doorstep: take the train to South Bank station or drive to Bulimba and take the City Cat for a leisurely river trip.
Easy Access to Sporting Venues.
Sleeman Sports Complex at Chandler is a short 15 minute drive. This complex includes the Brisbane Aquatic Centre, Velodrome and Olympic Standard BMX Supercross Track all set in peaceful gardens.
Belmont Shooting Complex is nearby. During the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the cycling and shooting events will be held here.
Manly Marina is close by with Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, host to several yachting regattas throughout the year. Wynnum Manly Yacht Club and Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club are also located within the Marina.
