Historical Traveler Reviews Licuala Lodge Mission Beach
Fantastic - don't go past it!
Stayed just the one night here.. would have loved to stay longer. If you end up in Mission beach ..don't go past Mick&Sue's door!!
The rooms have lovely balconies to sit out on in the evening. The pool is great! Free beer and soft drinks in the fridge.
We ate in a great restaurant called Blarney's - yum!
Great place to stay ..great breakfast and atmosphere.
the highlight of it all - after spending a few hours trying to come across a cassowary in the forests, one appeared in the morning time right in the B&B's yard - amazing!
We toured Australia for 7 weeks staying at some very nice accommodations but this was definitely one of the best. Mick and Sue cannot do enough for you and as hosts are difficult to beat. Everything they say/claim in their website is true. If you have any interest in birds at all you must stay here - we saw 2 different cassowaries on the property in 2 days (plus 2 more on Bicton Hill!). We would not just visit again but would go out of our way to stay at Licuala Lodge again.
A great place to stay!
We stayed here for 2 nights and couldnt have asked for anything better in Mission Beach! The room was more than comfortable, the breakfast yummy, the pool great and Sue and Mick were great hosts. We even hired bikes from them and had a day exploring the towns and then had our own little BBQ on the balcony. The FREE beer went down a treat!
We have been backpacking for 7 months and this is withoput a doubt one of the best places we have stayed!
Praise from Idaho, USA
Sorry if this is repetitious - but this is a fantastic place to stay. The beauty of the gardens is beyond description. Our room was very comfortable. The breakfast was way beyond what one might expect. And then there are the hosts, Sue and Mike. Go to their Internet site and you will get a feel of the type of people they are. Fun loving, game playing, doing anything to make you feel welcome and enjoy your stay. Don't hesitate to stay at Licuala Lodge even though you can't pronounce it. Even though we are discrimating people we have no negative comments about our stay.

Friendliest B&B in Queensland
Stayed here a couple of nights. Wished we could have stayed longer. Sue and Mick and great hosts - have great local knowledge and nothing seems too much trouble for them. Great breakfast - try a Full Monty - the best cooked breakfast in the world !!
Pool is fabulous and gardens are stunning.
Mission Beach is a quietish town - but has at least two good resatuarants that we tried - Blarneys and Friends. We can recommend the Butterscotch pudding at Blarneys.
Put Mission beach on your list of places to visit on the East Coast - and Licuala Lodge
This is the one place that we will always remember about our holiday in Oz. Great accommodation, Sue's breakfasts are so yummy. Nice pool and beautiful gardens. We came across two cassowaries whilst we were here - and got to take pictures of them from about one metre. You could almost touch them.
They have four or five shelves full of paperbacks that you can swap, and you just help yourself to beer and soft drinks.
We did a reef trip from here which was excellent and also did a day's Sea kayaking - Attie the guide was really good. We saw lots of turtles and possibly a dugong.
Mission Beach is a good alternative to Cairns which we found a bit too busy and full of tourists.
One night not enough
We could only stay one night at the Licuala Lodge, but would have loved to stay three or four. Our room was in the main house - spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The house and grounds are fantastic, there isn't one thing I could fault. Excellent breakfast and great value for money. Mick was really helpful in booking a restaurant (he even took us there), and gave us a brilliant itinerary for our journey north. If you are considering booking the Licuala Lodge, don't hesitate.
Great hosts fantastic setting
We stayed for two nights at Licuala Lodge, and can't praise the place highly enough. The setting is quiet,peaceful,yet virtually in the rainforest. The room was of a very high standard with lots of nice touches.
The lounge is a great place to relax with free refreshments!
The breakfasts were amazing and Sue's daily specialities were a highlight.
To top it all Mick and Sue were the perfect hosts.
Stayed at Licula Lodge with my partnet for 2 nights. Breakfast was fantastic, lots of interesting fruits and local produce. Beds were comfy and the owners were really friendly. Mission Beach is just beautiful, we recommend taking a water taxi over to Dunk Island and spending the day there. Would stay here again, 2 nights were not enough.

... can get a rest as he has been doing all the driving for us which is very much appreciated.
Cardwell is right on the water and we dropped into the police station as that is where Steve is Officer in Charge there, just to see what time he will be finishing. It was funny to see him all grown up and looking very serious in his uniform, very different from the little boy I first met which seems like a hundred years ago and I was so proud of him, it almost brought ...
... back the other, not intentional but we made it anyway, all the fun of travelling. The people who are camped next to us, Marian and John who are originally from a farm near Mudgee, and yes they know Barney Fittler, now living at Dalmeany but only being there 7 years don’t know Rosemary and Neil, are carrying a fire drum and once set up invite everyone at the rest area to join them for a drink and natter before dinner. We have about ...
Today we would start our southerly progress. We think that yesterday's diversion back to Cairns cost us half a day on our plans. Off at 7:30 for the first of a shed load of waterfalls. First we arrived at Malanda falls, long before the visitor information office had opened, and long before anyone else had decided to turn up, and who came blame them. Although the visitor centre and the car park gave the impression that the area had significant investment, the actual ...
... a while, it soon went.Another girl from another boat refused to do it and he said you should only do it if you really felt confident as its dangerous and if you panic and try to.swim.the current will.just pull you further down. Jack said he felt relief when he saw me.pop up even I'd I did go into the rocks and said I was only under for 5 seconds maybe because I'm full of air I surfaced quicker haha!!!
We then had a little swim down stream.letting the current take ...
... I feel asleep again while Ryan surfed the net and then headed to the pool. After my divine nap I joined Ryan at the pool for several friendly water competitions. Apparently we cannot hold our breathe for as long as we used to be able to as kids...After an epic afternoon of swimming we return to our hotel room to shower and freshen up for dinner at Scotty's. We walked to the beachy open air restaurant where many of the ...
