When I arrived at the Kookaburra Holiday Park back in early March, I didn't really know what too expect, all I had to go on was a glowing review from a friend I met down in Melbourne. Straight away, I realised I had picked the right place to stay for the next 3 months while I did my regional farm... More

Old fashioned style caravan park which attracts lots of fishing and boating enthusiasts. Tent camping was a bit limited but compensated for by very friendly owner, Leonie, who seemed to be always on the go and looking out for the park's residents and guests. Great kiosk in the office; one of the best stocked I'd seen on route from townsville... More

Spent 2 nights here while fishing in Cardwell. Clean rooms, friendly people and very reasonable rates. The WiFi was the best of any hotel on our trip. We checked in early and the people had not yet checked out so they let us put our food in the office fridge. Would definitely return.

Stopped for one night in an onsite unit. We were upgraded and It was old and only average but very clean. The bed was fine and the facilities were all that we needed. The owners were friendly and for the price it was OK. It was located in a top spot and close to the beach.

A real up and coming hostel, owners Rod & Leoni are constantly looking for ways to improve park facilities, engage residents in activities & projects, and will go well above their duties to find everyone work (banana farming, prawn farming, passion fruits & even work around the park). There is a wealth of facilities (laundry, kitchens, showers, barbeques, van hire),... More

Stayed one night and that was one night too many. Would not recommend it. Noisy revellers until 2.30am. Turned on the air conditioner to try to muffle the outside noise, but that sounded like a freight train in the room, so had to turn it off. The double bed was so small one of us ended up on the lounge.... More

I was really happy to get a budget motel room for the night in beautiful Cardwell, that was until the Friday night backpacker party began and kept going past midnight. I am used to caravan parks having rules about quietening down by 10pm, but thought that midnight on a Friday would be fair enough. But no, the extremely loud party... More

We got a free upgrade to a motel room and it was great! One double bed and one single with a kitchenette with a fridge and microwave. The room smelled and looked lovely and clean. The owners were really friendly and helpful offering us to give us a lift to where we had to be in the morning Everything was... More

There are bunch of people seeking for jobs or actually working around town, but it's a good spot if you wanna plan the Hinchinbrook Island too. Good dorm + kitchen. The staff helped me keeping my backpack while I was away for four days. Beautiful people! Thaaanks! The only pitty is that WIFI was nor working at all when I... More

This was one worn out unit. Clean enough, but not very nice. 2 rattly old air-con machines kept it coolish in middle of summer, but hard to sleep with. Wouldn't stay there again considering it was only a couple more bucks to go to the beachfront motel.
