Highly recommended. Pleasant overnight unpowered stay with ocean view. Fully equipped camp kitchen and toilet/shower. Nice spacious swimming pool. Access to bushwalking tracks. Kangurus come to beach at dusk and dawn.We will visit again!

Our visit to Cape Hilsborough was an absolute pleasure. Our cabin right by the beach was clean with all the basics. The view in the morning of wallabies right outside our deck and the sound of the gentle waves reaching the shore made waking early very easy and a delight. Watching the group of wallabies on the beach as the... More

I stayed here with a Women's group for 2 nights in April. It is a great location with lots of walks, a wonderful beach where kangaroos visit to forage in the early hours. We stayed in a cabin, which wasn't detached but in a long row of unit style accommodation. The configuration of each is quite different and basic with... More

Just spent a restful and relaxing long weekend at one of NQ's best wilderness spots. Great facilities and friendly informative staff at the resort complement the beautiful scenery. Plenty to keep the kids busy - big pool, mini golf, movies and more. Make sure to make the effort to get up early and see the wallabies grazing on the beach.

Stayed for 4 days, wanted to stay longer. Place was packed for the long weekend, but everyone was well behaved and quiet. Staff are exceptional. I see a few negative comments, assume from bluggers trying to sneak in and use the showers. Very good spot for photographers. Fish and chips are quality.

From the moment we got there to when we left we did not feel like we could enjoy the place at all.
