LOCATION 25 | Escape to Coochiemudlo Island
Look to your right. Along this street you'll see a typical assortment of island dwellings. Coochiemudlo Island has many small beach houses and some larger modern homes, and there's still a few spare blocks of land.
When my family came to the island the population was around 600. Although we don't know for sure because Coochie was only counted separately in the last census, which was in 2011. At that time there were 708 people on the island.
The island is actually very densely populated because the land area is quite small. When it was originally surveyed in 1885, all the blocks were one acre, but over the years they were reduced to smaller lots.
