YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!
BEAUTIFUL COOCHIEMUDLO ISLAND in Moreton Bay (BRISBANE) is where you will find my "TRAIN FARM" with 7 train carriages and my "QUIRKY COTTAGES" just down the road. I have a pet dog, donkey, sheep, chickens 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.
