Lovely to hear you were happy with your accommodation and our service. And yes, the island bus company offers a great service - we are not a designated stop (listed on their timetable) but as we've been here for so many years and have many...More

Sounds like you really got out and explored our island. We always promote the 10 trip 'flexi' ticket to our guests prior to arrival. As you say, (based on 2 persons) if you're both heading back to Townsville for minimum 1 day during your stay...More
