Five of the best waterfront properties in FNQ
THERE is nothing quite like being able to amble from your bedroom, via the kitchen for a quick coffee and out onto golden sand and into the azure waters of the Coral Sea.
Most reserve such luxury for holiday time but in Far North Queensland, there are a number of homes which can afford buyers that recreational lifestyle feel every day for a fraction of the price of properties elsewhere in the country.
