  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We go into our local town usually once a week and everyone is welcome to join us. Noosa, Rainbow Beach are only 1.5 hours away. The area is popular for camping and bush walking and also horse riding. It is quiet and peaceful great to get away from the city chaos.

    Other things worth a mention, our property is about 50Klms from Gympie (main town/city) and 22Klms from the nearest local shop/post office in Amamoor.
    We can arrange for pick up from the train station or bus drop off points near Gympie.
    We have a shopping day once a week in Gympie (weather permitting)

    Mobile phones don't work reliably in our area! However anyone who uses Telstra as their service provider will be able to use their phone.
