Named for its natural freshwater waterhole, thirsty travellers from across the globe have been visiting Jacobs Well since the mid-1800s. Situated near the mouth of the Pimpama River on the edge of the pristine Moreton Bay, which is peppered with uninhabited islands, Jacobs Well is a haven for fishermen and boating enthusiasts alike. Thirsty travellers in the know eventually chose Jacobs Well as their home and have become multi-generational families who have in turn nurtured a strong, supportive, and friendly local community. Driving through the township, affectionally referred to by locals as ‘The Well’, you’ll see tidy streets, well-kept homes, and a boat in every driveway.
This beautiful location, which provides both enviable water views and scenic country drives through the cane fields, is situated approximately halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, only 10 minutes off the Pacific Highway after a short drive through fields of sugarcane. The nearby Calypso Resort offers luxury facilities and a deep-water marina, alongside the knock-out views over the Bay.
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. With a world-class boat ramp, the area is an ideal launch site to access islands and channels of the Jumpinin area, renowned for its ideal fishing and boating conditions.
