About our home

Our home has 4 queen size bedrooms, one sofa bed that sleeps two, two bathrooms, separate toilet, a large rumpus room downstairs, entertaining deck with bar-b-q and large inground swimming pool. The house is on 1 1/2 acres but only 2 kilometres from the centre of the beautiful town of Beerwah, home to Bindi Irwin's Australia Zoo. Beerwah is nestled in the scenic Glasshouse Mountains, an hour from brisbane on the train or 30mins drive to the Sunshine Coast Beaches of Caloundra and Mooloolabah. The home is two story with air conditioning in the main lounge room and fans in the bedrooms. Beerwah never gets really cold except maybe early July. If you want to experience a slice of Australian bush, yet be a minute away from supermarkets etc this is the place for you. It is like you are in a treehouse in the forest and this unique location is why we have lived here 24 years. We love the serenity but want the convenience of a nice meal out.

Where is it?


Beerwah is a small hinterland town nestled in the Glasshouse Mountains. It is on the train line to Brisbane and an easy drive to Maleny in the mountains or the Sunshine Coast beaches (30 mins away). It has all the conveniences of supermarkets (Woolworths, IGA and Aldi), a great pub, pharmacy, Dr's. library etc. There are a lot of bushwalking tracks for all range of skills, lots of fishing spots and tourist attractions nearby, the most famous is Australia Zoo actually in Beerwah. Apart from the zoo there is the Ginger Factory at Yandina, the famous Edmundi markets, Underwater World and even the Gold Coast theme parks (Wet and Wild, Dreamworld, Movieworld) are a day trip. there is something for everyone here but as in most of Australia you need a car we include a car with our swap for easy access to everything.
