Our favourite beach in North Queensland. A gorgeous 1 hour drive through the canefields with the coastal range on the left and Queensland's two largest mountains on the right. Close enough to Cairns to be convenient and just far enough to be an escape.

And - you walk straight onto the beach from the garden.

 The Beachie is the lower half of a weekend holiday home owned by a local family. You will always have the property to yourself because the owners do not come down from the Tablelands to stay when The Beachie is booked. 

 

Why do we love Bramston?

  • It’s close to Cairns -  1 hour through the spectacular landscape of green canefields flanked by the coastal range and the towering 5200' backdrop of Mt Bellenden Ker and Mt Bartle Frere.
  • Bramston has an ambience that reminds us of childhood holidays without a care in the world. Time stops still and the rush and noise of the city is replaced by the gentle sound of the waves and the whispering of the breeze through the she-oaks and melaleucas.
  • You can forget the mind-numbing conformity of shopping centres because there is just the one cafe/shop for basic supplies. Bring your food and drink with you and replenish in Innisfail or Babinda. The motel runs a good restaurant which attracts visitors at the weekend, as do the two small caravan parks on the beachfront.
  • The fishing is good and the swimming is safe - a large stinger net is in place from November to May. The best and most refreshing swimming in the summer months, though, is in the freshwater creeks such as at Josephine Falls and Babinda Boulders.
  • The absolutely best reason to stay at The Beachie is because it is beachfront. You go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the sea. There is nothing like it.
  • Take your coffee to the beach at dawn and watch the sunrise or make the first footprints on the beach and find a pretty shell. In the evening, at sunset, you wander down to the beach - drink in one hand, snacks in the other - grab a chair and soak it all up. Your neighbours down the beach will be doing the same thing.

  

Walk on the wild side - North Bramston Beach

Take a drive (via Sassafras St) to North Bramston - about 8km to the end of the road in the Graham Range National Park. Walk down to the beach, cross the creek and head north.

Start your walk about an hour or so before low tide. Do not swim in the lake behind the beach - it may be home to a saltwater crocodile.

The walk along the beach is lovely. The Frankland Islands are on your right, High Island ahead and Cape Grafton and Fitzroy Island in the distance. The rainforest comes right down to the beach. Huge granite boulders dot the beach making small private beaches. Look up in August/September and you will see great clumps of flowering golden orchids atop the grey rocks.

After 6km the beach turns left towards the small settlement of Russell Heads. The Mulgrave and Russell Rivers enter the beautiful turquoise Coral Sea here with the 3000' wedge of Walsh's Pyramid rising clear in the background.

You really do need a week at The Beachie to explore the amazing surrounding area. A rough list of things to do:

  • Explore the pretty sugarcane town of Babinda

  • Swimming & BBQ lunch at Babinda Boulders

  • Kayaking on Babinda Creek

  • Swimming & sliding at Josephine Falls. Beautiful 600m walk through rainforest.

  • Visit the beautiful gardens and fantasy buildings at Paronella Park, Mena Ck.

  • Mamu Canopy Walk on the Palmerston Highway

  • Other walks through the rainforest from the Palmerston Highway

  • The waterfall circuit on the Atherton Tablelands around Millaa Millaa and Malanda.

 

I hope you will visit Bramston. It is a special place for us because the first home listed on the website in 2005 was our own cottage at Bramston.

Review (by email to CHH)

"My wife and I had the most relaxing holiday at The Beachie! The apartment is on the beachside of the street with a rambling colourful garden that is reminiscent of my Grandmother's garden. The apartment is upstairs with a full length verandah, tables, chairs, sun lounge and gorgeous views to the sea. The apartment is spacious, meticulously clean and the kitchen is very well appointed.     On our arrival, a big bunch of flowers from the garden were in a vase on the sideboard table in the kitchen - a most cheery welcome! Every afternoon after our walk, we had sundowners on the beach and every evening we looked forward to eating our dinner on the verandah listening to the waves.

As the Bramston Beach store does not stock fresh supplies, be prepared and bring your groceries with you - the apartment has a wonderfully large fridge! If you are caught out, Babinda has a supermarket and is about a 20 minute journey. The Babinda Bakery is famous for it's bread, pies and pastries!

Julie's husband gave us some fishing advice and directions but we were unsuccessful in catching any fish however the pristine beauty of the Bramston landscape was breathtaking!

Our 5 days were most enjoyable. We felt renewed and recharged. I would recommend The Beachie to all.

Thank you, Terry and Alison "

"A great location that is central to all the day trips - Paronella Park, Mission Beach, Josephine Falls and The Boulders.

Thoughtful hosts Julie and John made us feel very welcome.

Crispy clean and tidy this homely abode is located right on the beautiful Bramston Beach.

We regularly ended our day with drinks and nibbles on the beach, watching the sunsets and catching the cooling breezes.

A very relaxing holiday. Highly recommended. 10/10

Thanks for your help."

Review (by email to CHH)

"We had a lovely time at The Beachie. I think that the change in apartment advantaged us, it was nice to be upstairs getting the extra light and easy access to the verandah. The house was very comfortable and had everything that we wanted. The kitchen was well appointed and we appreciated the coffee machine, with coffee capsules, as well as the soda water "machine"(??). The barbeque cooked our meals very nicely and we enjoyed the convenience of the beach at the end of the magical garden. Julie had explained all arrangements clearly and everything was as described. Thanks for being so attentive to us since we booked"

"We recently stayed at 'Beachie' at Bramston Beach. I can't thank Julie enough for making the house so welcoming. It's one of the best holiday houses we've stayed in. This is a real gem of a place, both the house & the area. All the mod cons are provided. I can't imagine why more people don't go there. We had an incredibly relaxing, refreshing break. Which was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks so much for sharing your little bit of paradise! These Kiwis, will be back:-)"
