Linger here with Champagne, good coffee or tea and feel special! Located on peaceful and secluded Curlew Cove beach, Macleay Island, near North Stradbroke Island, Yarrandabbi Dreaming is almost a 'spiritual sojourn' set on an acre of native gardens. Hear only the serene sound of lapping water and birdsong as you sip your wine listening to your favourite music.

Escaping the housework and children with 'Girls Weekends Away' and being spoiled is a popular reason to stay.
