Salty Towers

A Holiday Rental House on Fraser Island at Happy Valley

In an elevated location in Happy Valley’s peaceful Second Valley, Salty Towers offers a unique holiday experience with ocean views, large decks, accommodation for up to 10 people and a short walk to the beachfront.

The house has a unique style with high vaulted ceilings, expansive deck areas and exposed timber throughout that provides an open connection with the surrounding environment. Architectural flair is evident throughout the building with pole construction and a bedroom loft overlooking the internal living area.  

COMFORTABLE SURROUNDS WITH ALL THE AMENITIES OF HOME

As a destination the house provides all that is needed for a quiet reflective stay with comfortable surrounds and all the amenities of a home or for entertaining family and friends in congenial surroundings under sunny, inclement or star filled skies. Watching for whales, enjoying the native flora and fauna or observing the night sky are activities on offer from the comforts of the property. 

UNIQUE POSITION IN THE HEART OF FRASER ISLAND

As a base for island adventure, the location is uniquely positioned centrally on the eastern seaboard which provides beach and inland trail access for the length of the island. The position is ideal for travel to well-known highlights (Eli Creek, Maheno Wreck, Lake Wabby, The Pinnacles, Indian Head, Champagne Pools, Lake McKenzie, Central Station, Waddy Point ) and lesser-known island secrets (Local fishing, Lake Garawongera, The Great Walk, Yidney Scrub, Lake Allom, Woralie and Awinya Creek foreshores ).

Located a short walk from the beach, the property allows easy private access to the coastal dune and waterfront areas for walking, fishing or contemplation. The dune areas provide opportunity to appreciate the nature of the foreshore and the power of the breaking surf. 

Happy Valley provides a less travelled location on the island away from the bustling tourist centres of Eurong and Kingfisher and makes available all that is needed in amenities and services for an adventure filled or contemplative stay. The township provides a dingo free environment protected by secure fencing and access grids.
