Went to dinner here made a reservation one evening for 6.30pm arrived earlier at 6pm we were happy to sit outside and enjoy a drink if our table was already accompanied, lucky for us it wasn't so we were seated straight away which was great! A staff member took our order for drinks a couple mins later then our meals... More

The proprietors have done very well to redevelop the park since cyclon Yais. The amenies block, restaurant, and pool are all in tip top condition.The caravan powered sites can be very tight for room, once you're in your site, you may need to ask your neighbour to move their car so you can put down the struts on your van....

This motel was a pleasant surprise with wonderful views across to Hinchinbrook island. Our room was very spacious & clean. The beds were comfortable. Our airconditioning wasn't working so had to keep door open with security screen shut & were woken at 5am with road noise. It was great having restaurant & bar on site & our seafood was terrific.

This is another great caravan park right beside the beach, lovely tropical gardens, older facilities but spotlessly clean. A real bonus is the super bar and restaurant overlooking the beach. happy hour starts at 4.30pm and is not to be missed, friendly helpful management and staff, would have stayed longer if we could have.

We just had delightful 9 nights in the caravan park here. Grounds are tidy and functional with that wonderful tropical lushness. The facilities whilst a little old were kept clean and functional. Camp kitchen and BBQ's.looked good and were always clean. The highlight for us though was the restaurant. Bar opened at 4:30 and you would normally sit outside looking... More

We stayed for two nights in a self-contained cabin which offered everything we basically needed and was clean enough on arrival. It seemed a bit too pricey though for the rather run-down state it was in – we paid 95 AUD per unit per night. We liked the location close to the beach and the pool, but were a bit... More

Spent a very comfortable, quiet and reasonably priced 2 nights here just over a week ago and couldn't be happier with the friendly staff, beautiful location and great little restaurant. It was a bit of a friends' reunion for a group who hadn't seen each other for quite a while. It was wonderful to step out the room almost straight... More

Recently spent Easter with our dog at Cardwell. Had an excellent powered site to park our Jayco Camper. Most of the sites along Raleigh Road side of the park are divided with little wooden fences which is great as it gives you a little extra privacy. Get one of them if you can. The park management are friendly and helpful.... More

We've been dining here regularly for years on our visits up from Brisbane, the location and views across Rockingham Bay towards Hinchinbrook Island are so peaceful with lovely breezes making sitting outside the Restaurant so enjoyable, the high quality of the ever hanging imaginative menu with friendly North Qld service makes dining here such a pleasure, highly recommended!
