Outdoor adventuring!


Riverbend Lodge's enviable location on a semi-rural four-acre country-style property is further enhanced with manicured paddocks; off-leash walking with your dog (yes, it's doggy friendly too); fishing; kayaking; jet skiing and even water access from the front lawn for your tinnie.

Doggy and tinnie friendly ...


When visiting Riverbend Lodge, guests have two different accommodation options to choose from, with I might add, enticingly exotic names from the wild.

*Leopards Lair is a two bedroomed cottage that can comfortably sleep six people. Guests have access to one x Queen bed in the main bedroom and 3 x single beds in the second bedroom, plus a double sofa-bed in the living area. The cottage also has an open plan living area with dining and a full kitchen.

The interior of the studio cabin, Eagles Nest


Both Leopards Lair cottage and Eagles Nest studio cabin are north-facing with river views and covered verandas - inviting an evening sundowner! The two accommodation options at Riverbend Lodge are located alongside each other and separated by a walk-way. This is ideal for families and/or couples who may be keen on holidaying together.

Both the Leopards Lair cottage and the Eagles Nest cabin have their own fenced yards, allowing guests to bring a small to medium friendly/sociable furry family member with. The fenced yards have gates leading to the shared paddock.

and ... stunning by night!


As readers might have noticed, two night stays are accepted at Riverbend Lodge, however the longer the stay, the cheaper the rate! Riverbend Lodge offers the best online rate available, as all bookings are made directly with the owners. Bookings can be made via Riverbend Lodge's website here.

I love the idea that one can get away from it all for a weekend or a mid-week break for some outdoor adventuring, without having to travel extended distances. Riverbend Lodge Waterfront Accommodation fits this criteria perfectly - giving fun-seeking holiday makers a little slice of heaven, in close proximity to Sunshine Coast beaches and without the need to leave Queensland.
