Ever wish you could have a laid-back beach or fishing holiday like the old days? Here's the perfect place. Walking distance to beach and shops, this simple, but fully equipped and spacious, beach house mixes old style character with modern comfort and location

The space
This spacious old-style beach house has plenty of space for two families or a group of friends with 4 Queen rooms and a spare trundle bed. It is air-conditioned with a fully equipped kitchen and modern furniture. There is plenty of off-street parking available including space for a boat in the undercover breezeway (12m x 4m x 2.75m high). It is just a short walk to the beach, shops, pub and esplanade parklands and cycle tracks, and only 1km to the boat ramp at Wild Cattle Creek.

Where you’ll be

Tannum Sands, Queensland, Australia

The property is in the area know as 'Old Tannum', as it is on the hill above the beach and was the first area developed (because it was the best location)! The last decade has seen the beginnings of modernisation so you can find original beach shacks alongside apartments and new homes. Recently developed on the beach corner of Pacific Avenue just 200m walk from the property, is a small shopping precinct which includes a bar and restaurant, smoothie bar, homewares and fashion house, sports outlet and fish and chip shop. 200m in the other direction is the Coles shopping centre, chemist, pub and food outlets including KFC, and cafes.

However Tannum has not yet lost its sleepy village nature. We especially recommend a morning stroll to the newsagency to pick up the paper and call into the bespoke bakery or butcher that each have their own unique Tannum flavour.

The family-friendly beach is patrolled during the warmer months and school holidays. The mouth of Wild Cattle Creek is popular with kite-surfers and they can be seen riding the waves off the main beach most weekends. The adventurous (and tide-savvy) can walk across the creek to explore Wild Cattle Island National Park at low tide - just make sure you cross back before the creek fills!

On the first Saturday evening of each month (Mar-Dec) there are over 90 market stalls and live music on the beach. Also accessible from the esplanade parklands is more than 20km of cycle or walking track along Wild Cattle Creek, Tannum Beach and the Boyne River.

For those who love fishing, there is a boat ramp just 1km away at Wild Cattle Creek and plenty of space to park your boat undercover at the property. Kayaking on the Boyne River is also popular.

Take a day trip to Lake Awoonga and stop off at Benaraby for a milkshake at the retro cafe and visit the Benaraby Junction nursery and take home a living souvenir.

At the end of a busy day, enjoy the air-conditioning at your spacious beach house or sit outside and catch the sea breezes while you cook up a feed on the barbie.
