Jacobs Well


Description

Named for its natural freshwater waterhole, thirsty travellers have been visiting Jacobs Well since the mid 1800s. Situated near the mouth of the Pimpama River on the edge of a pristine waterway peppered with uninhabited islands, Jacobs Well is a haven for fishermen and boat enthusiasts alike.

This quaint fishing village, with lovely water views, is situated approximately halfway between the cities of Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It can be found 10 minutes off the Pacific Highway after a short drive through scenic fields of sugarcane.

As the gateway to southern Moreton Bay, Jacobs Well is just a short boat ride to the Gold Coast Broadwater and the tourist Mecca of Southport. The area is an ideal launch site to access the islands and channels of the Jumpinpin area, well-known for its ideal fishing and boating conditions. Boaties will enjoy exploring the myriad of islands in the coastal channel and there are no bridges or obstacles or to spoil the fun! Fisherman will find nearby estuary waters teeming with flathead, whiting, tailor, and bream. Reel them in from the jetty or over the side of a boat.

Just five minutes up the road is a luxury resort and deep water marina offering fine dining, live entertainment, cold drinks and knock-out views over the water.

For a change of pace the Gold Coast's major theme parks are only a 15 minute drive away and the heart of bustling Gold Coast is just 30 minutes down the road.
