LIVING ON BRIBIE ISLAND

Bribie is Queensland's only island with bridge access. After it was completed in 1963, the bridge made access to this unique coastal oasis convenient for thousands of visitors who come to enjoy the national park, bountiful wildlife and scenic views. The Pumicestone Passage that separates the island from the mainland is itself a protected marine park and a habitat for rare animals such as dugongs, turtles and dolphins. Some of the region’s best mangrove forests are at your doorstep, as are several spectacular white sand beaches.

There’s plenty to do on the island, whether you enjoy fishing, walking, swimming, or browsing through the outdoor markets. You could steer your paddle boat out to play with the dolphins, drop into the local spa, or visit the historical museums before putting your feet up in a cozy oceanfront café. The national park covers over 55 square kilometres of walking trails and sand dunes, with panoramic glimpses of the Glass House Mountains on the far horizon. It’s a tropical wonderland that never ceases to amaze, inspire and recharge the tired soul.

The communities of Bribie are clustered close to the bridge at the south end of the island. Just over 16,000 residents live in the area, and Banksia Beach has retained the feel of an intimate beach village. This is a place where you’ll get to know your neighbours and receive a warm greeting in your favourite restaurant. The main shopping centre in Bellara has several big-brand shops and you’ll be able to find everything you need without having to venture to the mainland. There are also two primary schools and a high school right on the island.

If you do decide to wander further afield, you’re on the cusp of the Sunshine Coast with all of its many golf courses and attractions just up the road. This prize home is the perfect holiday retreat or winning could even put a whole new spin on your retirement plans!

LOOKING FOR A SECOND INCOME?

If you’re not yet ready to move permanently to Banksia Beach or don’t need a year-round holiday home, you could always rent out the property. You’d receive an estimated income of $36,000 a year if you leased the home fully furnished, and that’s a very tidy second income! Imagine what you could do with that kind of extra money coming in every month. Treat yourself to an annual luxury vacation, cut back on your working hours or simply live a life that’s free of financial worries. That income could even push forward your retirement date and make a life on Bribie Island come a lot sooner than you think!

As property values continue to rise, renting the property for a few years should also boost the value of your windfall if you choose to wait a bit rather than put the home on the market immediately.

SURF LIFE SAVING IS AN AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTION.

Surf Life Saving are such an institution, they are recognised across the world, with their distinctive colours and costumes. There are over 1,250,000 Surf Life Saving members across over 300 clubs. It is the largest volunteer movement of its kind in Australia.

Surf Life Saving is a volunteer movement, that saves hundreds of precious lives each year, across beaches that stretch 36,000 km around the coast of Australia. But they cannot rely on volunteers alone, they need gear, boats, first aid equipment, vehicles, training, management and a whole lot of behind the scenes activity that we give little thought to. Each and every Life saver goes through rigorous training, often throughout their childhood into adulthood. Life-saving costs money and Surf Life Saving Prize Home Lotteries, help raise essential funds that ensure our life savers are there when we most need them, with the equipment they require.
