"Fantastic family lifestyle"

Boyne Island provides a friendly safe environment to bring up your family, with unlimited investment potential. It also provides every opportunity to lead a healthy, active lifestyle, with wonderful biketracks, sporting clubs and facilities, boat ramps and the barrier reef at your doorstep. There are a number of public and private schools, and CQ Uni 20mins away. With a wealth of industry in the area, unemployment is relatively low.

"Quiet & Suburban"

It is a good place for young families with kids, otherwise there is not much happening unless you like fishing!

"Gateway to Barrier Reef"

Boyne Island is across the waves from Tannum Sands on the Central Coast of Queensland. It's humidity is at times quite disturbing, but apart from that it's a great place to be. Especially if you're retiring. For young people there can be a bit of a void, but the beach offers a great distraction. There's local grocery and specialty shops, cafes, schools and fishing outlets. The seafood in town is also excellent with fresh stuff coming into town daily from the trawlers. The locals are friendly and if you watch out fro crocs (which have over the past ten years taken up residency in the Boyne River), you can have a great time either visiting or living here
