I am a mother of two at present and a proffessional photographer/garden landscape consultant. Our house at Sandy Point house was purchased only three years ago after holidaying in the area for 20 years. We love Sandy Point so much for its beauty, beaches, serrinity, wild life and not too many people know about it. I have tried to build up the garden at Banksia house with plenty of native vegetation as over the last few years a lot of the old trees have been blown down or rotted. This natural vegetation brings in the wild birds and fauna, just recently the female koala has had a baby.It is so special when your children can see wildlife in their own habitat. Another bonus of Sandy Point is the inlet, we never tire of going there as a family, every trip we find something different to entertain us and the kids, whether its a seal or millions of blue crabs or a city slicker getting his boat/car bogged in the water ( yes I have pulled out one of those before with m (Website hidden by Airbnb) Sandy Point is just magic.
