Navigate beyond its verandah down the limestone steps and you’ll encounter some additional necessities to accompany a residence of this calibre/geography. There’s quite a large boatshed for all your nautical bits and bobs, a beachfront boathouse for your larger nautical bits and bobs (i.e. at least two boats), as well as offshore mooring.

“Rocky Point is truly a one-off property without peer – there is nothing that compares,” notes listed agent Deborah Cullen of Cullen Royle.

“It is a private sanctuary set in a stunning natural environment, in a pristine part of Australia that is unspoiled.”

“The centrepiece of this remarkable property is its breathtakingly beautiful location… quite literally jutting out into the sea, providing unparalleled and jaw-dropping panoramic views.”
