Marketing Dude

Down the back of this B&B is a very well kept secret. A two minute walk from the house and rooms will bring you to a pontoon and boat ramp that has to be used to believed. When I visit I normally bring a rod and these two.

They make good helpers when they stop reading. I think they both should be looking for fish.

Even if you have no boat the pontoon itself makes for a great place to sit and read or do what should be done and fish. Murray will happily help out with anything you need to fish but be warned he hates it if you pull in something bigger than he does.

So one more photo with more of the river. It also contains smiles and sunshine.


Looked very inviting yesterday afternoon.

At a reasonable time this morning a blanket of fog settled over Alberton. As most of Alberton is in a valley it hung around well after the sun was up. It makes the morning walks down to the fishing spots very interesting as you never know what wildlife is going to be in front of you at any given time.

I have been at Albert River B&B a few times over the last few weeks having coffee and talking about what information should go on the new website and how to setup some new photos. Sue and Murray say they like it exactly the way it is and comments like “It is our paradise as it is so why should we change it?” and “We don’t want to false advertise by making it look like any other place”.

During my visits I was surprised by rabbits running across the road right near the driveway. These rabbits are not running away but going from one side to the other to get different grass. They do not seem afraid that a car is coming at them, they just move as they see fit. The thirty odd geese at Albert River B&B are the same. They spend most of the day foraging and then walk in a single line across the road to the neighbours for an hour or two. Then they walk back. The wallabies are a law on to themselves and move through the area as they want.

The sunrise comes early bringing all sorts of birdlife. The sunsets are something everyone has to see. The night sky is full of stars even though this place is 30 minutes from Surfers Paradise and about the same from Brisbane. You might as well be in a secluded valley in the nearby Hinterlands.

The roads leading to Albert River B&B takes five or so minutes from the main highway to travel, so there is no major slog to get here. You go from 110Klm an hour to beer, wine and relaxation in maybe seven minutes once you take the turnoff.

Now I have a question for you. What would you say is the reason you enjoyed your stay at Albert River B&B? What do you remember about it? What did you say to friends and family about your time? Sue and Murray want to tell people about their Paradise. They would rather have words from visitors rather than a marketing guy. Leave a comment here or on Facebook and help them out. It will make my job easier too.
