The two stoves/ovens and hot water system are gas powered, offering you instant hot water. And speaking of water, there is none more pure as it is drawn from more than three meters below the filtering sand, pumped to a storage tank where it supplies the house with pure, clean, fresh water. To find (or lose) yourself in this idyllic location, drive north along the Eastern Beach of Fraser Island, about 30 minutes from the barge landing at Hook Point.
The house is located approximately ten kilometres north of Eurong Village.
There is a small rocky outcrop that has a high tide bypass just south of the house. Once you pass the rocks, you will see the house nestled into the sand dunes amongst the pandanus and coconut trees.
Poyungan is conveniently positioned, allowing easy access to the beautiful rainforests, freshwater lakes and creeks, within an enjoyable drive from the house. Or continue north along the beach to enjoy the sites of spectacular Cathedral Beach ,Indian Head, Orchid Beach and the champagne pools.
The Eastern beach is famous for fishing, some of the best spots are right in front of the house…but don’t tell everyone! When you have caught your meal, you can clean your fish on the well lit cleaning bench located on the front lawn. See if you can better the measure etched into the side of the bench by one of the family after catching a huge Taylor, and yes measure from the far end of the bench!
If the fish aren’t biting you may like to fully indulge yourself and enjoy dinner at one of the three resorts boasting restaurants, Eurong Village, Happy Valley and Kingfisher Bay where you can stock up on supplies and fuel if needed.
The house is available for holiday renting upstairs or downstairs separately or combined up and downstairs only, the other will remain vacant.
