Update on Hook Island Wilderness Resort

Hi, Has anyone stayed at the Hook Island Wilderness Resort recently. Have read some old reviews which didn't seem too good. Wondered if the resort has improved. Thanks.

No improvements just keeps sliding down the path of not enough maintenance and in desperate need of some TLC. There are a couple of island resorts here that could do with new owners and Hook is one of them.

You're right, its run down, old and overgrown with grass on the tracks and walking up the path from the jetty puts you in mind a some sort of holocaust with upturned chairs, a rusty broken down BBQ, a divers helmet overgrown with weeds.

But for some strange reason we just love the place. We never fail to call in there each year, stay for a day, use the pool, have a meal, crack a few coconuts on the spike, buy a shirt and take the very scenic walk to the edge of the island.

We grabbed one of their brochures last year and you'd think it was Hayman looking at that, but alas, its only Hook.

We've never stayed in the units, but went through them for a sneaky peak last year. Only ever pick up an overnight mooring, but hey, they're cheap and friendly!

One day let's hope someone buys the place and turns it into paradise.
