YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!
BEAUTIFUL COOCHIEMUDLO ISLAND in Moreton Bay (BRISBANE) is where you will find my "QUIRKY TRAIN FARM" with 7 train carriages. I have a pet dog, donkey named Lollipop, sheep called Marshmallow, chickens, guniea pigs, ducks and more.
HOW TO GET HERE?
Just 40 minutes drive east of Brisbane City to Victoria Point Jetty, then a short "FERRY RIDE" to Coochiemudlo Island. You can catch a bus from the city to Victoria point jetty or a train to Cleveland station then another bus to get here. I can pick you up from the Coochie jetty when you get here or it is a short walk. You may want to look up translink on the web for more info about buses and trains.
Located across the road from a lovely sandy BEACH. Close to golf course and a 10 minute walk form ferry.
Your "UNIQUE" accommodation will be in a cute little FULLY SELF CONTAINED train carriage.
