On the water in Moreton Bay

Hello Beautiful Joy friends,

Well I was very spoilt last month , my gorgeous husband took me off for a week at Couran Cove Resort on South Stradbroke Island. We headed off on Monday morning and drove down to Horizon Shores Marina (about 35mins south near Jacobs Well). We parked the car and jumped in the boat and off we went.

We motored out into beautiful Moreton Bay and after about 15mins we arrived at South Stradbroke, Couran Cove Resort.  Couran Cove was originally developed by an American, quite a few years ago, it shut down for a couple of years and reopened about 18months ago. The resort has 2 resturants, pools, a spa, water activities, tennis, a gym and lots of other great things to do on holidays.  It does need a little bit of maintenance and the staff are lovely, it certainly provided us with the relaxing base we needed to explore.

Each day we would jump in the boat and motor out into the Bay and decide where we would go and what we would do. The weather was calm so the options were endless.

We headed up to Tipplers, a bar and cafe on the sand in a truly tropical atmosphere, where we had a delicious burger and chips from their extensive menu.  Believe me you need to eat that burger it was yummy!!

Now Tipplers is a great spot for boaties to drop in but it is also a wonderful place to camp and explore, they have Wallaby huts for camping in or you can bring your own tent. Every Sunday is live entertainment from 11.30 am to 3.30pm.

There are several ways to get to South Stradbroke Island including boat hire or charter, water taxi or your own private boat.

For a holiday that is really relaxing and so close to Brisbane it is certainly the spot to go.

If you have just relocated to Brisbane and need a break after the move, this would be the perfect place to go.  Hope you all get there soon.
