Hi Matthilda - thanks for your review. Xmas Day in North Qld pretty much means that the BBQ will put to good use.

Hi Rachel - Breakfast here is a great experience, not just the food but also sharing the table with other guests makes it all the more pleasurable.

Perfect resort style tropical accommodation immaculately designed and maintained. Great salt water pool with a mini waterfall and some shade. Also, cassowaries visiting in the morning are a highlight. We were lucky both mornings to see a mother with two chicks. Booked for one night but we decided to stay one more day just to relax and enjoy the place...

Hi Simon - thanks for your review. Cassowary sightings are a wonderful experience especially when the chicks are very young (and very inquisitive). Since you left the gardens have had a good few centimetres of welcome rain. A lot of people intend to stay in Mission Beach for just one night, but end up staying an extra night or two....
