17 Parliament Street, Sandy Bay TAS 

$635,000 – $675,000

While the outside could do with a paint, this is a super cute little home for a great price. Sandy Bay’s a coveted spot, and while it looks little – the inside is actually really spacious. Like, there’s three bedrooms in this baby.


1/33 Compass Drive, Biggera Waters QLD


Buy this property, buy a boat, dock your boat out the back – dream life achieved. The shared pontoon gives access to Broadwater, and there’s even a covered entertaining deck overlooking the outdoor pool and waterway. Delightful.
