Enjoy the fire pit and BBQ facilities, or check out these options.
Coochiemudlo Island is only 5 sq kilometres in size making it ideal to walk, ride or drive around the island. Having only a few hilly inclines the island is relatively flat, so riding, rolling and walking are excellent as the roads are bitumen to make chair movement easier. At the end of the road, there is a concrete pathway leading to the beach, park, pontoon, and restaurants.
The paved walkways also suit chair users enabling everyone to go down to the beach and enjoy the parklands, kids playground and free BBQs. The beach is a bayside non-surf beach.
Coochiemudlo Island boasts 4 kilometres of clean safe beaches, but the beaches aren’t currently wheelchair accessible. The three sandy beaches, Norfolk, Morwong and Main beach are only a lovely 5-minute roll away in an electric wheelchair. Great for the kids and family to play cricket, football, kayak, fish, and swim or sit and enjoy the bay views. There is also a leash-free dog beach area on the western main beach for your pooch to enjoy (not currently accessible).
Curlew Café is located on the main beach near the Coochie ferry terminal. You can grab a coffee, breakfast, burger or lunch and they also have a few household and food supplies should you need them. The café is open every day from 8.00 am to 3.00 pm and on the occasional Friday night. Click HERE for more info.
For a cold beer and wine head to The Coochiemudlo Beach bar and enjoy Kev’s craft-brewed beer and great bar menu. Sip on a cold drink and enjoy the bay views. You can also enjoy a pizza to eat in or take away. The beach bar is open from Thursday to Sunday from 11.00 am to 8.00 pm. Click HERE for more information.
Both Curlew café and the beach bar cater to everyone and are family-friendly and a great place to meet up with friends.
If not eating out, please remember to bring all your food and household supplies for your stay, as there is no supermarket. The good news is Woolworths do deliver online orders 3 days a week.
For the golfing enthusiasts, the 9-hole golf club is only a 10-minute walk from the home and is a great meeting place for a Saturday lunch get-together. Click HERE for more information.
When operating, boat and BBQ pontoons are also available for hire. For those who love the water, BBQ Pontoons are wheelchair friendly and offer an opportunity to explore the bay. The pontoon owner can bring the BBQ boat to the ramp for ease to glide on. Tennis courts are also available for use.
