We stayed here for two nights on a birding trip. It was at the end of the season and as a result our group were the only ones there. Our accommodations were in prefabricated en suite rooms that were small but adequate and extremely clean. Water was hot, beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was reliable. During the season...

Stayed here on return leg of riding motorcycles to 'the tip' of Cape York. Great amenities, activities and atmosphere. All levels and types of accommodation available. The cabins/tents initially sound expensive but the price includes restaurant quality dinner and breakfast which eased the shock. Budget camping in also available. Friendly staff. The real attraction (apart from some fishing and bushwalking)...

Travelled with Oz Tours and were put up in the permanent tents with beds. Clean and comfortable but no power and a short walk to the donger amenities. The food supplied for the tour groups was excellent = restaurant standard. Good wildlife viewing options in the very early morning or on dusk as long as you keep 5m+ back from...

There are 3 levels of accommodation - your own tent, on site glamping tents and cabins with ensuites (dongers). We were delighted te be in the...

Camped here on the way north, what a wonderful spot. The staff were super friendly, the grounds were grassy, well maintained and there were tons of big mango trees for shade. The place had such a lovely vibe, there were walking tracks around the property, great waterholes for fishing, tons of birds and wildlife. The camp toilets and showers were...

Visited on Outback Spirit tour. It was OK, but lacked the atmosphere of Lotus Bird lodge. Management efficient, but maybe a little less dedicated. Nice walk to Barra Hole, led by our Outback Spirit guide. The history of Moreton Telegraph station was interesting to read and to see.

This place is remote, like the Lotus Bird Lodge, and both provide excellent facilities for such distant places. There is no alcohol provided; you need to bring your own. The food is good, though. We stayed in cabins and they were much better than your average donga although the noise from the generator was a bit annoying. We were with...

We are heading well north of Cairns and stayed at the Moreton Telegraph Station as part of a group tour. Very clean rooms set up on the edge of a camping area. My only complaint was that when you were inside the cabin the place was confining as there were not big doors to open out onto balcony but the...
