Cardwell Beachcomber Motel & Tourist Park     Read more ...

During our recent trip down the Bruce Highway in Northern Queensland we called in to look around the Beachcomber Motel and Tourist Park on the beachfront in Cardwell.  This park is a member of Top parks and, as the name would suggest, has a range of accommodation options - ocean view villas, motel rooms, cabins as well as powered or un powered caravan and camping sites.

The caravan park looks very nice with lovely sites and a small pool area.  A restaurant at the front of the park overlooks the water for a relaxing drink or meal. Happy hour daily from 4:30 to 6 pm. A bike path runs along the foreshore with plenty of places to stop and enjoy the view – there are a number of interesting sculptures and information boards along this path.

Cardwell is renowned for its great fishing and crabbing - it is a boating paradise with miles of sheltered creeks and waterways to explore. This is the gateway to the world famous Hinchinbrook Island. The Beachcomber Motel and Tourist Park has a fish and boat cleaning area for convenience. Pets are allowed.

We would not hesitate to stay while visiting Cardwell during our next caravan adventure.

Kookaburra Holiday Park     Read more ...

Kookaburra Holiday Park is located on the Bruce Highway in Cardwell within walking distance to shops, cafes and pubs - only 250 metres from the beach.

Cardwell is close to Hinchinbrook Island and a very popular destination for fishing and boating.  Kookaburra Holiday Park has a fish cleaning table at the main barbeque area and a boat washing space is provided for the use of guests at the park.

They offer a range of accommodation - villas, cabins, units and a dorms as well as caravan and camping sites. The park is surrounded by tropical gardens and pets are permitted at the managers discretion (so ring ahead).  This park has all the facilities required for a holiday in Cardwell and we found the staff to be friendly and helpful.
