... while I am travelling. When I arrived at my hostel I was shown to my 4 bed dorm and met my other 3 roommates, Steph, Simon and Yohanas, all of whom are christian (from Germany) so praise God for that! They are going to Airlie Beach tomorrow too and are staying at the same hostel as me so we are all going to church together on Sunday.
The 4 of us walked 5 minutes from our hostel to the beach; this one seemed to go on forever and was just as ...

Ha. :) I've still got my real ones safe n sound :) Anyway after the paddle board fiasco (which included a knee injury on my part - when it started to bleed I got scared I would act as shark chum!!!) we hired a double kayak and that was brilliant, so so much fun. We were an awesome team, paddling through ...

That said, there is nowhere formal to run the drain from the sink and showers so it just kind of runs out along the road which is a bit average. Anyway, all in all, we loved our stay in the Atherton Tablelands.
After a scenic drive down the mountain we travelled the 50 odd km south and turned off to Mission Beach. Stopped ...

Friday 2nd August.
The morning was spent catching up on various jobs.We have booked a three island tour at 12.30pm with Mission Beach Dunk Island Taxi Service. We left Wongaling Beach right on 12.30pm and headed over to Dunk Island for sail by look. You could still see a lot of damaged from Cyclone Yasi over two years ago. Part of ...
... a man with no formal training as an architect, builder or landscaper could build this home. The castle home even had a hydro electric scheme that produced enough power for all of the property. There was a ballroom/theatre, tennis courts, swimming area, diving area, changing rooms and many pathways around the property. It even had a grand stairway from the castle down to the picnic area.

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.
