Coochiemudlo Island is a beautiful sub-tropical island in South Coast Queensland boasting golden beaches, calm waters and a laidback atmosphere. The secluded beaches and magnificent views of sparkling Moreton Bay makes Coochie a very special destination. You can access the island easily by ferry or vehicle barge from Victoria Point jetty.
The name Coochiemudlo has the Aboriginal meaning of red rock. This is due to a steep bank of red cliffs on the south western corner of the island. This feature is uncharacteristic to the rest of the island, which is fringed with sandy beaches and blue waters.
The island is small enough to walk or cycle around, and is a delight to explore. The area is popular for windsurfing, sailing, swimming and paddle boats. Fishing from the shores of Coochie or from the jetty has resulted in many a fine catch. You may be lucky enough to spot a dolphin, dugong or turtle in the shallow waters near the beach.
Just three square kilometres in area and 40 minutes drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. You can access the island easily by ferry or vehicle barge from Victoria Point jetty.
