After a rather torrid first half of the year we decided to revisit Macleay after many years. We needed a short break from a busy schedule. We knew that Macleay was a very serene and beautiful place to relax and were fortunate in finding Yarrandabbi Dreaming which is a superb complement to the island. The hostess, Yvonne, could not have... More

Less than an hour from home and we were on Macleay Island for a 2 night r&r. So close to Brisbane - yet a world away. The setting is extremely peaceful with a natural beauty with lawn down to the water's edge and a variety of native birds and plants. Yarrandabbi Dreaming is a luxurious B&B hosted by award winning...

We were visiting Macleay Island for a wedding all the way from Victoria. What a gem of a place is Yarrandabbi Dreaming, superb accommodation, breakfast to die for and fantastic hosts in Trevor and Yvonne. Not only did they provide us with a taxi service on the island but they made us feel so at home. We were really able... More

The weeks leading up to our stay at Yarrandabbi Dreaming had been very busy, and it perfectly delivered the short retreat we were after to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We couldn't have been happier with the warm and inviting welcome we received from Trevor and Yvonne. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean. Breakfast each morning was delicious; especially the... More

We were looking for a short break and love Boutique accommodation. We were not disappointed with Yarrandabbi Dreaming. Yvonne and Trevor were the perfect hosts with amazing attention to detail.

You could not ask for nicer, more attentive hosts or for a better breakfast or more comfortable accommodation. What better welcome after a late-ish arrival than a drink or two (perhaps it was three)with one's hosts on a mosquito-free deck overlooking the sea and islands beyond? What better start to the day after a good night's sleep than a delicious... More

A last minute decision to spend a night away from Brisbane was made all the more easy with Yvonne and Trevor's help. Yarrandabbi Dreaming is the perfect place to escape and unwind...with enough choice of activity too. We arrived at 1pm and were met at the ferry station. Yvonne took us to the B&B via the local supermarket where we... More
