The Boat Club

Good food with large portions in a beautiful setting. Small play area for younger children. Enjoyed a slight breeze but even though it was May it did get quite warm on the deck.

Enjoyed the views and the restaurant where we had a meal. The prices were fair and the food was fresh and very tasty. We had a meal at the Yacht club.

If you like the big tourist type of location then don't waste your time reading this. Yorkeys Knob is a lovely quiet place but it has lots of things going for it, you can stop for a quick break or spend a few hours having a break from the road or just go for a swim. There are holiday resorts... More

We drove around the Marina, looked at the boats, didn't stop, but we still liked what we saw. Looks like a relaxing place for a holiday, with easy access to the beach.

There isn't much there except for a delightful natural beach, there was a lifeguard on duty. The stretch of beach was very long.

When I visitied Cairns a few years ago I got a quick glimpse of Yorkeys Knob. I wish I'd had more time to spend there as Yorkeys Knob is much bigger than I thought it was. Very few people have heard of, or seen Yorkeys Knob. Those who have can't fail to be impressed by Yorkeys Knob. There's plenty to... More

This is a little village nestled between a boat harbour and a beautiful sandy beach. It has a few holiday residential unit blocks but is principlely a residential community. The hinterland to the beach retains much of its natural charm but also has a neat landscaped area at the northern end. We fell in love with it so much we... More
