Bramston Beach

Postcode: 4871

Bramston Beach is a town and located in Queensland, Australia. Its location is about 60 kilometres south of the regional centre of Cairns. It is located 17 kilometres east of the Bruce Highway.

The Eubenangee Swamp National Park and Queensland’s highest mountain, Mount Bartle Frere are nearby.

It is a popular spot with caravaners and is a good fishing location and has a slightly older than average population. The population of Bramston Beach is 260. Bramston Beach is a fairly self sufficient community, with a focus on their beachside lifestyle. There is little community infrastructure in Bramston Beach, including no public transport service in the area.

The ageing of the population and the increase in couples making ‘sea changes’ to far north Queensland will put pressures on the future development of Bramston Beach and other similar small coastal settlements.
