Ridge Haven is a 140-year-old ‘Queenslander’, Aussie-speak for a traditional weatherboard home, ringed by verandahs and designed to catch whatever summer breezes are on offer. French doors open into all rooms and Peter and Morna have also built a wide back deck to entice you to take breakfast among the tropical parrots, potted herbs, overhanging palms and pink- and orange-flowering bougainvillaea.....

.... They live downstairs with Danny their dog. Ridge Haven is the very model of a traditional B&B: wholesome, friendly and good value. Morna used to run a catering company and now puts those skills to good use at breakfast, where delights might be bircher muesli, home-made stewed fruits, jams and home-made breads, stuffed field mushrooms and devilled kidneys… or whatever you want. Bedrooms are neat and comfortable with lace and block-out curtains to hide the Queensland sun, for those needing to rest up after a long flight. Beds have decorative mosquito nets, throws, cream carpets and tidy bathrooms with slate-walled showers. Elsewhere there are antiques, a TV alcove in the guest lounge and a pretty music stand - but you’ll have to BYO instruments. Restaurants nearby, airport 25 mins, city centre under 10 mins.
