We stayed here on a road trip return trip (Brisbane - FNQ). We were lucky enough to get a booking on the same day and late at night. Cardwell Beachfront Motel had the comfiest bed and the cleanest of amenities we enjoyed on our trip. It's situated on the beach, walking distance from the IGA and the jetty. The new owners are the kindest and most helpful we've come across. Thanks for a great stay and all your help!

Nice quiet park. If you stay here go to the Muddys bar and grill restaurant. We had the seafood platter. Excellent. Say hi to Carl and Debbie for us.

This is a little gem. The most beautiful spot in Cardwell. The owners are super friendly and helpful. The sunset drinks on the deck was fantastic.
