Had a fabulous 2 nights stay here during our honeymoon. Vicky and Ted wonderful hosts and Vicky saved us a lot of money by booking our trips to the Kuranda rainforest and the Barrier Reef. It was absolutely gorgeous and the food was wonderful. Vicky even put flowers on our plates. The soap in was placed on beautiful leaves. Really... More

One of the best places we have stayed at, the setting is incredible & totally unique, I have never seen a place like this. The lagoon surrounds the house & you are on this little Island watching all of the different birdlife on the water & in the huge beautiful paper trees that surround the lagoon. It is amazing. The...

The Billabong is a lovely small B&B with only two rooms, each overlooking the Billabong, a small lake. It is lovely and peaceful, with many kinds of birds to watch and listen to. The rooms are comfortable and thoughtfully furnished with small patios overlooking with tables, chairs and candles. You can walk to the small town of Hollaways Beach where... More

First rate B&B complemented by professional, informative & friendly owners. Supurb location and beautiful landscaping. Both rooms face the lake and it is a peaceful, relaxing oasis. Central to all of the sights around Cairns and a couple of great restaurants nearby. The beach is lovely too which you can walk to.

Stayed here in September 06 for four nights as the first stop on a mini tour of Australia. What a place to start! It is located a twenty minute or so bus ride from Cairns, in a lovely spot called Holloway beach. It is not a big suburb, but there is one excellent restaurant (Coolums), an idyllic beach bar next...

The property is located in the quiet suburb of Holloways Beach and is approximately 10 minutes drive from Cairns and the airport. It is close to a number of tourist attractions such as... More

The reason I stayed at this B&B is because of the great reviews I had read on this forum. I agree with all of the reviews on Billabong. It is the best place that we have stayed in & we could not fault anything. Everything was 1st class, it is really worth staying here, you would not be diappointed.

We had a wonderful time during a two-day stay at the Billabong B&B. Vicky was a great host: briefed us on all the tour options and places we could go on our own. Very knowledgeable about the reef (she and her husband formerly operated a dive service). We awoke to a bird concert both mornings before our excellent breakfast prepared... More

We had the pleasure of spending a few days with Vicky and Ted in May, 2006. Billabong is a wonderful B and B. We like to stay at B and B's when we travel and this is one of the best. The setting is peaceful, romantic and tropical. Nice touches like fresh cut flowers in the room greet you. Rooms... More
