We stayed in a motel unit for one night and that was enough. We did not eat or have food there, but by the time we went to bed we noticed heaps of ants running all over the bedside unit - yuk! I know this is part of life in the tropics and you don't leave anything to entice them,... More

This a small C/Park situated in Cardwell between the Bruce Highway and Railway Line. You would think it would be noisy but in truth it isn't. There is only about 4 t rains a day with one late at night and you hardly notice it. The Park offers cabins and both powered and unpowered sites at a reasonable price and... More

I visited here with my boyfriend intending to stay a couple of nights as a stop over on our holidays and ended up staying a few nights longer. After hearing about the great fishing spots in Cardwell, we decided to give it a go. Kookaburra seemed like a good place for us to stay and it completely exceeded our expectations.... More

I stayed at the Kookaburra for 4 1/2 months working at the nearby Banana farm and loved every minute. Cardwell is one of the most beautiful towns on the East coast perfect for fishing or a bit of peace and quiet with amazing views of the surrounding countryside and endless sandy beach. There also several nearby creeks that are definitely... More

This gem is by far my favourite place in Australia. I stayed and worked in Cardwell for 4 1/2 months and I adored it. It's in a beautiful location, affordable, clean, fun and so homely. Rod and Leonie (the owners) are possibly the nicest folks in Australia, they are simply amazing and will help you with anything. The units on... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my accommodation. Clean and tidy. Service was great. Friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Great publicity for things to do and places to go. There were plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans.

Not a bad spot to stay for a day or two iga is a very short walk away to the north to the south is about a 10 minute walk to town with hardware, dress shops, fish and chip shops and a pub with bottleo even though the parks on a main road it's not that noisy

Service was good while unobtrusive . The room was clean, good bed linen, nice shower. More spacious than expected. Location of the park is great although the studio got a bit noisy being near the office. Every van had to pass it.
