"Lovely and quiet suburb"

Leaving at The Shoals over 9 years and loved evrything about it. Beach is walking distance. Nice houses with good value for money. No noise or silly people. if its a party on a street - its for all neighbours. everyone knows each other and give you helping hands if you need it. its safe for kids to play on the street.
Large GP Super Clinic is just 10 min drive and its has everything you need, don't have to drive to town for a dentist, doctor or physio. Next to GP is Coles, Woollworths, Pizzas, Subway, 2 different gym, few schools, childcare, police, few service stations, pharmacy, flight centre, bakery.....and much more. We maybe 25-30 min away from CBD, but who would want to leave in middle of city night life anyway?

"Sleepy Ocean Suburb - Shoal Point!"

Shoal Point is a beautiful, small, laid back suburb of only a few hundred situated right next to the beach! Shoal points beaches are large and pristine which also contain some rock pools which are home to magnificent marine life such as starfish, small fish, corals, crabs etc.

The beaches are great for many activities such as sand castle building, blo-karting, observing the marine life, and inspecting the rock pools! Take a walk along the beach in the early morning or late evening and occasionally dolphins can be seen playing in the waves. When the tide is low you can also walk to close by Green Island.

Shoal Point boasts reef fishing right on your doorstep as well as Crabbing, Prawning and Estuary fishing at Reliance Creek.

Shoal Point is not home to any medical facilities, gyms, eateries or shops as of yet. But with a new expansion on the way, its very likely these things will be established! For now though, these places are only 5 minutes down the road in neighbouring suburb Bucasia.
