Burrum Riverside Cabin

Bedrooms 1
Space 54 m²
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Riverside cabin with direct access to the river.

A quiet peaceful place with that old fashion weekender atmosphere with all the extra luxuries thrown in including air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout, large TV, DVD, new ensuite etc.

The bedroom has a queen size bed and a single bed. The sofa in the living room folds out to a double bed.

The bedroom and the living/kitchen area both have views of the river as does the grassed BBQ area.

If fishing is your thing there is plenty of space to park your car and boat. We will give you a crab pot to use off the jetty if you don't have your own. And the boat ramp is only two doors away.

We also have two kayaks and two bicycles available.

The river is only 30 metres away (stairs involved) with access to our jetty. The property also has two unfenced dams. So do not bring children to the cabin if they cannot swim or if there could be any potential for water safety issues.

Our nearest little town is Howard which is 10 minutes away and has one hotel (with great pub meals), a supermarket/newsagency, supermarket/hardware store, bottle shop, country style café,doctor, vet and post office.

Maryborough (historical) is 35 minutes, Childers (Wineries) 35 minutes, Hervey Bay

( Whale Watching and access to Fraser Island) 40 minutes and Bundaberg (Rum, ginger beer and food) 70 minutes. Toogoom and Burrum Heads 25 minutes. Plus nearby national parks and Lenthalls Dam.

Dogs are definitely not permitted as the property it is unfenced.

Your hosts Neil and Carol live on the 2 and half acre property as well and are happy to help if asked with local information or special needs.

Other notes.

The. BBQ is wood fired and firewood is supplied

As we are right on the river midges can sometimes be a nuisance arround dawn or dusk.

Personal insect repellant is provided just in case.

Burrum Riverside Cabin
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had everything we needed as a family of 4. Our boys (11 and 14) really enjoyed the fishing, the kayaking and the region. Carol and Neil were very welcoming! They welcomed us with 2 bottles of wine and were very kind as they gave us some veggies from their garden. We has a great stay and we will go back!
