We stayed here for a week in June and had high expectations. My husband had stayed here with his family 30 years ago and remembers it as a picture perfect place to stay right on the beach. It still is a picture perfect place to stay, as we were positioned only metres from the beach in our caravan and our... More

Beautiful ocean front camping sites! Unpowered and powered! Ellis Beach had a nice kitchen set up and very nice and clean amenities! We even stayed there again on our way home from NQ. Recommend to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay! We camped both times on site number 6 on the powered sites and that has... More

Our third Christmas stay here, Ellis Beach has now become a favourite family destination each year. Stayed in a two bedroom, fully self-contained cabin with the ocean only metres away. The cabins are not luxury by any means but are clean, comfortable and have everything you need. Previous reviews mention road noise but we didn't have this problem as we... More

We stayed here 2x3 nights in june 2013 and absolutely loved it! The campground at the very end is litterally ON the beach. Sites down there ate unpowered, but it doesn't matter! Amenities are nothing special, but it all work fine! Nice pool! You stay here for the location, and it is worth every cent! Someone wrote about noise from... More

A group of 4 friends stayed overnight after picking a friend up from the airport. It's a lovely place to bring friends from the city or overseas (even a nice break for us locals). Bungalows a brilliant place to stay. Clean, bright, comfortable with kitchen, large fridge and tv. Polite staff. Amazing views.

My wife and I are from NZ and we travel in Australia for at least two months every year never staying anywhere for longer than a few days. We have stayed at Ellis Beach on at least four occasions in the ocean front bungalows and every time our stay has been exactly what we both expect of this fabulously positioned... More

One of the best camp sitesduring our trip with motorvan. You can park almost on the beach, and dine under the pine trees, next to sea. I understand that place is full usually so book in advance. Unpowered sites are closer to the sand

My partner and I stayed for the weekend in October 2013. We had a powered camp site for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The grounds are well maintained, very clean and tidy and beautiful garden landscaping. Not many places where you can camp so close to the beach so that is a big bonus! Camping sites are a... More

Ellis Beach Bungalows are hard to beat if you are looking for absolute beach front in the Cairns area. They are not what I would call luxurious, but certainly adequate for a family wanting to have great beach side getaway. Being beach front, it is still affordable to people on more of a budget which is probably what we appreciated... More

I want to rate this caravan park higher - the beach and its easy access is stunning, the grounds and amenities all fine, but the noise from the highway just out the front is so bad, that I'm inclined to say I would next time find alternative accommodation and come to Ellis beach for the day. Our camp was not... More
