Half Moon Bay Resort was absolutely perfect and included everything you'd ever need. My husband and I stayed in one of the apartments for 10 days and were more than comfortable. These very clean apartments all come with a washer and dryer for your laundry and the kitchen has everything you'd need to eat in if you want to save money on eating out. Renting a car is inexpensive and a must. Driving in Cairns is quite easy! John and Carolynne (Half Moon Bay managers) are absolutely wonderful. They did everything for us - planned our dive trips, booked all of our tours, and gave us advise on all of the must-see sites in the Cairns/Northern Queensland area. They also picked us up at the airport when we arrived and dropped us off at the car rental place so that we could pick up our rental car.
This quaint resort exceeded our expectations and is an excellent alternative to the more expensive resorts in Cairns. You definitely get MORE than your money's worth by staying here.
Yorkey's Knob is a neat little town with VERY easy access to downtown Cairns. All of the popular sight-seeing spots were very easy to find, and the drive to all of them was just breath-taking. There is no question that we will stay at Half Moon Bay Resort again!
