Classic Queenslander the ultimate bush hideaway with resort-style pool, zipline
It’s the quintessential Queenslander which epitomises the Gold Coast’s laid-back, fun-filled lifestyle.
With a classic design, the highset Currumbin Waters house features an iron roof, veranda stretching the length of the home and a resort-style pool — it’s the ultimate bush hideaway.
And for those with adrenaline junkie kids, there’s an 80m zipline, which will provide hours of entertainment.

Owners Chrissie and Richard Forbes have lived at the property with their three children for the past five years.
“The beauty of living in this magnificent house is hearing the birdlife every morning and nothing else, plus seeing the wallabies hoping around — yet you’re only 10 minutes from Currumbin Beach,” Mr Forbes said.
“From the veranda of the Queenslander you can only see one house, the rest of the houses are hidden behind trees.
“It’s your own little bush hideaway.”
The luxurious six-bedroom home has been recently renovated to include a swish new kitchen and modern bathrooms, yet it retains a classic feel with iconic weatherboards, lead windows, ornate cornices, timber detailing and the bullnose veranda.
The large 0.89 ha block also features a swoon-worthy pool and cabana which was only added three years ago.
“Everyone that comes to stay says it’s like living in a resort,” Mr Forbes said.
“It’s a great place to entertain and also a great place to get that peace and quiet you need on the weekend.”
There’s also the added benefit of having a personal wildlife sanctuary in your backyard with koalas, wallabies, rosellas, lorikeets and kookaburras in the surrounding bushland.
The family has listed the property and is looking to downsize without leaving the area.
