Special location being based in the Sanctury and we loved all the bird-life.

Special location being based in the Sanctury and we loved all the bird-life. The view is fabulous, we caught snapper off the wharf, there's lots of great walks and endless things to do as well as all the peace & tranquility you'd expect. It was a perfect holiday and location and we loved the cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is really comfortable and cosy with all you need for a comfortable stay. Having the floating dock just down the path made it a simple process every morning and evening to get out on the boat to enjoy the Barriers fantastic coastline. First Kngfish for the boat on this trip 18.5kg Yay! I would highly recommend a stay in Seaview Cottage and will definitely be back.

A wonderful holiday that surpassed our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful holiday that surpassed our expectations. The island was a pleasure to experience and explore, but this accommodation was outstanding. We were made to feel welcome by both the staff and volunteers, and they were happy to answer our many questions about both the wildlife around the sanctuary and the island activities. Swimming and kayaking in the harbour were a delight, and the visits from various birds a real bonus. We truly did not want to leave, and are already planning our return.

Wonderful place to stay. Bird watching, Bushwalking, relaxing in the sun & taking in the view.

Close to the Water. We would recommend to others and will definitely be back ourselves.
