We have been visiting the Cairns region every year for the past 5 years travelling from Sydney staying anywhere from 1 week to 5 months staying in all forms of accommodation so we are quite familiar with the area. In the past we have enjoyed many a beach BBQ at this quiet beach just north of Palm Cove and on... More

I'm local and I love to pop out to Ellis Beach and stay in the Bungalows or camp last minute. They can get really full in winter but the staff are great and try their best to keep everyone happy. Stayed in a Bungalow last weekend and even though its stinger season and raining we had a great time. The... More

You can't hardly any closer to the beach,we last visited about 7 years ago,thought it may have gone down hill abit?? No,still great to go to sleep with the sound of the ocean. There is now a Stinger proof enclosure ,so you can swim in the ocean. We wish we could have stayed longer

About 30 mins north of Cairns but it seems like a world away. Terrific prices ! My partner and i paid $185 for friday and saturday night... More

We had booked a few nights here in our camper trailer before we headed off to do the Savanagh Way. We slept the first night in the camper trailer then requested to upgrade and move into a room that was beachfront. The caravan sites are basically right on the highway with no barrier what so ever and as a light... More

Ellis beach is only 30 minutes away from our home, but needed to get away and what a gem Ellis Beach is! Absolute beachfront, an amazing pool, beautiful palms, wonderful beach with stinger net to swim in and lots of space. Facilities were spotless and the park was so quiet....can't wait to return!

I arrived early in the day as many of the guests from the previous night began to vacate. This gave me a plenty of shade or ocean view sites to select from. I went for the view. After a day spent exploring the beach, I retreated to my tent at dusk. The sound of the Coral Sea washing ashore 30... More

A group of 4 of us stayed in a standard cabin for the night. When I booked for the 4 of us I requested the 2 cabins be beside each other and the staff happily accommodated my request. Although we were only there for 1 night it was spectacular. Right on the beach. The cabin wasn't luxury but still was... More

Not luxury living but the location of this place is perfect, practically on the beach. We had a comfortable two bedroom cabin. Nothing luxurious, but everything clean and practical. The twin room would have been very crowded with two people -- space between the beds about one foot - but since I was in there alone it was fine. Air... More

We were advised that the Ellis Beach Caravan Park was something really special - it wasn't. We had a powered site for 5 nights and had pre -booked several months before. We were lucky in the sense that we weren't cheek-by-jowl with the vast majority of the other caravans and motorhomes - talk about tight! Just trying to drive past... More
