About the property

Flying Fish Point is a beautiful quiet spot that demands you slow down. At Feather Reef Cottage, you will wake up each morning to the sounds of waves crashing on the rocks and the sight of the sun rising over the sea. Make a coffee, head outside and enjoy it on the cane outdoor lounge and if you're lucky, you will spot dolphins or turtles cruising past.

After breakfast, you might choose to walk down to the shop to grab the local paper or a magazine and settle in for the morning.

Alternatively, if you love fishing or even enjoy just throwing in a line, nothing beats this spot. Great fishing off the back deck where you can catch (and we have caught) shark, grunters, flathead, catfish, mud crabs - every day is something new. How often are you able to fish all day from the comfort of your own home? Here it's a reality.

If you're feeling a bit adventurous, why not hire a 4.2m tinny or a 6m half cab from Boab Boats, located right next door, and fish the Johnson River or the Coral Sea! Call Annette Swaine on or reserve a boat online at

If you've caught something, you can cook your fresh fish for lunch in the full kitchen or if it was the case of the one that got away, you could take a drive into town to buy some fresh fish or eat at one of the many pubs, cafes and restaurants. If you feel like an outing, within a short drive are magical waterfalls, hot springs, swimming holes, tea plantations, a chocolate factory, the magical, award winning Paronella Park () and the beautiful Cairns hinterland. Just over an hour away is Cairns, with shopping centres, cinemas and the opportunity to go on day trips out to the Great Barrier Reef.

After a busy day doing lots or a little, spend the evening watching the moon rise over the water, glistening off the ocean before sinking into your ultra comfortable bed. All the beds have pillow top mattress protectors, 100% cotton sheets, goose/duck down donnas and cotton blankets and two pillows to choose from. All linen is supplied, including bed linen, towels, tea towels and basic amenities in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry.

There is a full kitchen (oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, pots and pans etc), but you are still only a lazy 10 min stroll to the local cafe for a quick bite (with a nice cold beer or bottle of wine to go with it) or a quick seven minute drive to Innisfail for cafes, pubs and take away options galore, if you would rather.

There is also a garage on the property to keep your car safe, and plenty of space to park your caravan. The house will suit any traveling style.

We have had previous guests complain of little or no TV reception and poor mobile reception. If you want to spend your holiday watching TV or checking your Facebook profile, we suggest you stay somewhere else. If you want to watch the moon rise over the waves or dolphins cruise past your back door, then you've found the right place!!

Please note this is strictly a no smoking property. If cigarette butts are found around the house, an additional cleaning fee of $100 will be incurred.

We look forward to welcoming you to this special piece of paradise.
