Ever dreamt of living by the beach? Haven’t we all at some stage!

But not just any beach will do when you’re talking dream home potential.

Luckily Australia is not short of beaches and, even better, the best beaches also have some affordable price tags if a sea change is calling.

In fact here in Brisbane … well kind of … we’re home to one of the best beaches in Australia according to Tourism Australia’s official list of 2024’s beach beaches.

Domain reports Cylinder Beach on Stradbroke Island is one of Australia’s best. And we won’t argue with that.

With a median price tag of $770,000 it could be an affordable sea change.

For those with bigger budgets, you can easily splash million dollar cash here. But if you’re a budget buyer a townhouse could be a cheaper and easier option.
