This is our 2nd time here in the beautiful Hinterland area of Surfers Paradise and we love this place. This resort is not a 4 star but the grounds, the wildlife, the staff, location and serenity are the reason we come back. All the staff are friendly, helpful, efficient and able to answer any questions.
The cabin blocks are scattered over the grounds and are basic, once storey dwellings. You park your car at the end of each block and you don't have far to walk to your cabin and there are baggage trolleys to assist carrying your luggage. The cabins house the usual furniture and have all the necessary items and utensils. They are comfortable enough and there are chairs outside your loungeroom to watch the wildlife etc. There are no laundry facilities inside the cabins but are situated in the middle of each long block & I advise to stay while you are washing to ensure better courtesy and efficiency for each guest.
The pool is a good walk but worthwhile. You can use the paddle boats on the lake but wouldn't swim in it until the algae is under control. You aren't supposed to feed the ducks etc. near your cabins but a lot do.There are designated areas to do this and you can buy feed from reception. We were woken to noise one morning to find hot air balloons being filled & customers being lifted away...what an awesome sight with the sun rising behind them!
The Hinze Dam is nearby and worth a look and a walk. You can pay to go horse riding, which is on the grounds. The restaurant staff are wonderful and friendly but you are limited with time and days to buy your meals. There is a large games room that can keep you occupied for some time that has an open log fire to keep you warm during the winter.
It's only a 20min drive to the Theme parks and 10mins to the Gold Coast main area. The markets are interesting and you can get great breakfasts there. We love the hinterland area for the rain forest walks. Once again, thank you Cedar Lakes for the memories, the tranquillity and the fresh air.
