This secluded resort on the tip of Cape Hillsborough has a great secluded beach and nice hikes throughout the area. The highlight was waking up at sunrise and catching kangaroos and wallabies feeding on the beach. We stayed in the beach house which was clean and fully equipped with dishes and cooking utensils. We made use of the communal gas BBQ.
Friendly staff. Make sure you heed their advise of tide conditions for some of the walks - high tide will make parts of the walks unachievable. Closest town is Mackay - about half hour drive away, so make sure you come prepared with food stuffs. We drove here from Airlie Beach in just under 2hrs felt like we had discovered a hidden gem compared to the backpacker feel of Airlie.
