The famous Wilsons Promontory looms at the end of the unspoiled Sandy Point beach, a little over two hours' drive south-east of Melbourne. The small beach community is nestled among the sand dunes and is the last village along the coast before the Prom.
Spinifex is built on the sand dunes that give Sandy Point its name. It is a modern architect-designed beach house that sleeps up to seven people. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the large living-dining area and well-appointed kitchen have splendid views north over farmland and Shallow Inlet. A huge deck, complete with a barbecue, is high above the ground and captures the morning sun - perfect for a lazy breakfast over the papers. The reverse-cycle airconditioner is great for summer, but should the weather turn cold, take advantage of the open fireplace. A two-minute walk from the back door over the dunes leads straight to the water - the stroll providing spectacular views of the ocean and the Prom.
