A Public Destination, Open To All

The Beach House is a unique, inclusive community destination combining a historic legacy with contemporary amenities, spectacular views, splash pad, playground, open seating, free wi-fi, beach courts & fields, and community & cultural events. Tour the Gold Coast era guest house year-round, and during summer, take a dip in the historic pool.  There's something for everyone to enjoy! 

As an event space like no other, the Beach House provides the perfect setting for meetings and celebrations, accommodating groups as intimate as ten to celebrations for 400, and available for film and photo shoots.
