Close to the Brisbane City, close to both the beautiful Sunshine and Gold Coasts this bayside town has much to offer its visitors.

Unique to Queensland, this style cottage has a traditional front verandah, a lovely shady place to sit and enjoy the bay breezes on a hot Queensland day. The Australian outdoor lifestyle theme carries to the fully fenced garden at the rear of the house where you will find a large covered outdoor living area complete with BBQ and outdoor dining setting.

This cottage is only minutes walk to all local amenities. Shops, cafes, transport (buses and trains), schools, childcare, doctors, playgrounds, restaurants and hotels are all nearby.

If the outdoors are on your agenda then the Sandgate & Shorncliffe foreshore, Moreton Bay, Cabbage Tree Creek, bird attracting natural lagoons, parklands and many bike ways ensure that you are well catered for, and all are literally at your back door.

Brisbane City is just 25 minutes on the train. Australia Zoo and Underwater World are under an hours drive to the north and the BIG 4 theme parks Movie World, Dream World, Sea World and Wet n Wild are an hour to the south. Beautiful golden beaches, dolphin feeding, sailing and diving is just across the bay on Moreton island.

Our cottage has been recently refurbished and has been receiving wonderful feedback from guests. Sandgate Cottages is a beautiful traditional timber cottage in a fantastic central location.

The Queensland region

The population of South East Queensland is estimated to be approximately 2.9 million. The regional population is concentrated along the coast with the three largest population centres being Brisbane, Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

South East Queensland is the fastest growing region in Australia, people just love living here, the growth equates to 1,000 new arrivals in the region every week.

Brisbane has a humid subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and dry, mild winters. From November through March, tropical thunderstorms are common over Brisbane.

Brisbane has a growing live music scene, both popular and classical. The Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), which is located at South Bank, consists of the Lyric Theatre, a Concert Hall, Cremorne Theatre and the Playhouse Theatre. The Queensland Ballet, Opera Queensland, Queensland Theatre Company and other performance art groups stage performances in the different venues.

The city's major sporting venues include Brisbane Cricket Ground, Sleeman Centre at Chandler, Suncorp Stadium, Ballymore Stadium and the stadium facilities of the Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre in Nathan. The new A$65 million tennis stadium can be found at Tenyson and hosts the new Brisbane International.

Tourism plays a major role in Brisbane's economy, being the third-most popular destination for international tourist after Sydney and Melbourne.

Popular tourist and recreation areas in Brisbane include the South Bank Parklands, Roma Street Parkland, the City Botanic Gardens, Brisbane Forest Park and Portside Wharf. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary opened in 1927 and was the world's first koala sanctuary.

The suburb of Mount Coot-tha is home to a popular state forest, and the Brisbane Botanic Gardens which houses the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium and the "Tsuki-yama-chisen" Japanese Garden (formerly of the Japanese Government Pavilion of Brisbane's World Expo '88).

Brisbane has over 27 km (16.8 mi) of bicycle pathways, mostly surrounding the Brisbane river and city centre, extending to the west of the city. Today fishing and boating are river common. Other popular recreation activities include the Story Bridge adventure climb and rock climbing at the Kangaroo Point cliffs.

There are so many things to see and do in Brisbane and South East Queensland. Find the best beaches, daytrips, scenic drives, camping spots, 4WD destinations and more. You can enjoy galleries, museums, markets and festivals in the city or head out and explore the river, mountains and forests. Whatever you want to do around Brisbane, chances are you'll find it here.


With fresh sea breezes and endless views of the bay, lovely shady picnic grounds and cycling and walking tracks, Sandgate is one of Brisbane's favourite weekend escapes. As a little seaside town in the 1880s it was "the" beach for Brisbane socialites. Today, people still visit Sandgate to catch the sea breezes and enjoy a picnic under huge fig trees. Bike riders will enjoy the kilometres of flat bikeways that follow the curves of the Bay..

There are many community and performing arts events and festivals held at Sandgate each year. The Bluewater festival over the Easter period sees huge crowds gather to watch the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race. The Einbunpin Lagoon festival in July celebrates all that is Sandgate and the annual Music by the Sea boasts many fine performances at venues within the area.

Just a few minutes by train is the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, this centre plays host to world class performers from all musical backgrounds.

You may wish to play golf at one of many golf courses in the area. The club at Virginia has come to be known as “The Course Of Champions.” Many rising stars have honed their skills on the challenging layout and used it as a platform to launch their careers. The list of Club Champions includes major winners Greg Norman (1972 and 1973) and Wayne Grady (1976 and 1977).

Swimming pools and aquatic centres are all close by as are sailing, kite surfing, canoeing and kayaking facilities. The list is many things to do, so many choices to make!!!!
