Renting Holiday Homes in Cleveland
The vivacious coastline village of Cleveland is perhaps one of Australia’s best hidden gems. Nestled in the Redlands Bay area not far from Brisbane, Cleveland is a place of beauty, serenity and vibrancy. With a bustling harbour, great restaurants, stunning natural beauty and many attractions and things to do, it is little wonder why so many holidaymakers from all areas of the world journey here to experience Cleveland’s atmosphere and character for themselves.
Experience the beauty of the sand and sea
Situated on the coastline, Cleveland’s beaches are one of the most popular tourist attractions. Popular with the entire family, whether you are five or 50, a day at the beach is a day full of fun. There are endless things to do here; build sandcastles, go swimming with the fishes, snorkelling, diving, surfing or enjoy one of the mother many water sports available. To enhance that beach holiday feel, why not stay in one of the many private holiday rentals along the promenade. The sight and smell of the sea when you first wake up in the morning is a breathtaking way of starting the day.
So much more than a beach holiday
Needless to say, Cleveland’s beaches are simply divine, but if you do eventually tire of the sand and crystalline waters then Cleveland and the surrounding area are yours for the exploring. The Redlands Museum is the first stop for anyone interested in the history of this stunning region. Come here to be amazed by the old pioneering artefacts, including farming machine, a coach as well as reconstructions of an old blacksmith’s forge and old settler’s schoolrooms.
For more history, venture along the Heritage Trail, where you will get to experience and explore Cleveland’s many historical attractions. Many of these sites date from the 1850s and 1860s and are guaranteed to enthral visitors of all ages.
The Harbourside is a bustling place full of excitement and colour. The views overlooking the bay will have you imagining that they were taken from a fairytale book. The boats here offer trips out into the ocean for deep sea fishing and diving trips, or simply watch them sail in and out of the harbour as you enjoy one of the freshest seafood dishes in the many restaurants here.
If you are looking to increase the atmosphere of your holiday to Cleveland, then staying in your very own luxury holiday villa or serviced apartment will greatly enhance it. There are many family friendly holiday apartments up and down the coastline or in the heart of the town for those who want to be closer to the action.
Holiday destinations in Coastal Queensland
Coastal Queensland is perhaps one of Australia’s best regions for holidays. The area surrounding Cleveland is inundated with gorgeous national parks and island hideaways which are just begging for you to explore them. At night, why not experience a very different side of Cleveland. There are a number of romantic little restaurants and eateries which are perfect for couples before heading back to your holiday house with the moon and brilliant stars guiding your way.
The best time to arrive in Cleveland
Cleveland, as with the rest of Coastal Queensland, enjoys a humid semi-tropical climate. Summers in Australia are winters in the Northern Hemisphere so it is important that you know this before booking your holiday to Australia. In the summer, temperatures can average around 30 °C, whereas in the winter the average temperature is around 10 °C. Remember that the sun can still damage your skin even when it is cloudy, so do as the Australians do and apply plenty of sunscreen and drink lots of fluid so you don’t become dehydrated.
