the location

  • Beach House on Straddie is only a short stroll away from 3 of Straddie’s most popular beaches - Cylinder, Deadmans & Frenchmans.
  • Cylinders is a picturesque cove nestled between two headlands, making it perfect for sun-bathing & swimming. Surfers will also find a world-class, right-hand sandbar break that travels the full length of the beach on a good day.
  • Although not patrolled, Deadmans is a perfect sheltered and secluded spot. Kids love exploring the rock pools and sand dunes. Waves are usually good for boogie-boarding. Surfers can also find short, consistent right-handers.
  • Continuing further to Frenchmans makes for a great morning beach walk. Follow the stairs up to East Coast Rd and grab a coffee for the return trip home.
  • During June to November, Deadmans & Frenchmans are the best places for whale watching. Whether on the beach or from the whale watching platform above, you’ll see humpback whales playing only a few hundred metres from shore.
  • Fresh produce & grocery supplies can be bought at Foodworks located a few hundred metres from Beach House on Straddie. The local bus service also stops nearby.
