The three hour drive from Brisbane is the longest we've driven to a holiday destination but it was well worth it. Our corner one bed terrace room overlooked the street along one side and the beach on the other. We were fortunate to have a rooftop deck (in addition to a balcony) which was spacious and well frequented by the time we left - an excellent spot to relax after a day on the beach or trekking along parts of the Cooloola Great Walk. Appointed with granite throughout the space, the very clean unit very much gives the impression of a luxury resort without the hoards of people like other destinations along the south east Queensland coast.
Had a few hiccups with our room but they were managed well by the staff.
We didn't really investigate other places so we can't say if it's expensive but it was significantly less than an equivalent holiday further down the coast.
The photos by the resort / other travellers just don't do the place justice. Can't recommend the place enough!
