“Stinger free”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

As you can't swim in the beaches, the lagoon is a great place to relax. The water is fantastic and right in the middle of town. A must see!

Reviewed February 4, 2013

The perfect place to relax. Beach area, grassed area all patroled by a life saver and you can't get stung by the stingers.

“Far North Paradise”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I believe the east coast, particularly far north QLD, to be simply stunning. Don't let the occasional cyclone delay your trip. They are relatively quick and the area is well prepared as it is "normal" there.

“Kid friendly, disability friendly, people-who-hate-the-beach friendly”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This pool has the feel of a beach but is a lot more comfortable in many ways. There are no stingers in this pool, I think it's salt/chlorine (I couldn't tell because it's only very lightly treated). One end is graduated with no step, and there is enough grass all around to put your towel down without getting sandy. There is also an area with sand to sit if you want. There is a very modern toilet block with showers (cold water, out in the open) disabled toilets, drinking taps. Undercover tables and chairs, electric barbeques. There is a liberty swing. Restaurants are visible from the pool.

“So Enjoyable.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Spent a wonderful day at the Lagoon with my Husband and two Adult Daughters. It was a very hot day, the water was a perfect temperature and there was plenty of shade... It was also nice to be able to swim without worrying about stingers. To make it perfect I wish there was a shop or something on site, even to just buy a drink or icecream, instead of having to walk back to the main street in the heat. If there was a shop there I did not see it.
