Things to do
"Saltwater" is a short walk to the "Gutter". The kids can enjoy beachcombing in the sting ray holes and hunt for soldier crabs at low tide or swim in the shallows at high tide. And for the parents, it is the perfect place to watch the sun set and have a few 'sunsetters' 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 Mirrapools 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.
You can fish from Reeders Point (only 5 minutes from the house) and the ocean beach or go squid fishing in the gutter (boats can be launched from near the house if you have a 'tinny').
National park - 4WD only
Moreton Island is a national park. There are no sealed roads - this means that there is 4WD access only. You will need a permit for your vehicle, which can be obtained from the barge operator. No pets are allowed.
"Saltwater" is off-grid. Electricity in the house is supplied by solar power. We have good solar batteries and a generator - although you need to be mindful of how much electricity you use. The water is rain water from a tank.
We have a friendly property manager who can help if you have any problems.
