          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!

          Cassowary haven


          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.

          Don"t try the rest try the best.brilliant stay.


          what brilliant hosts.nothing,s to much trouble for mick and sue .Even picks you up or drops you off at mission beach .the place they run is wonderful like paridise,food out of this world.Free drinks with meals even beer.Keeps you well informed of all the things you can do while staying at licuala lodge.great web site Mick's set up.If you are thinking of going to mission beach go and have a look

          round this place,mick & sue will show you around even if you don,t stay they will try and get you somewhere else to try.But you can take it from myself you will not want to be leaving this place.Keep up the good work ,will be returning very soon.

          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

          Tropical paradise


          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.

          Great Stay


          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.

          Spent the night at Mission Beach. Woke up Sunday morning to rain falling on roof 1st rain in months. Unfortunately the rain caused my awning to break. need a new one which will get done in Noosaville. Also forgot to mention my fridge stop working a couple of days ago when plugged into 240 volts.

          Departed Yungaburra this morning. Drove to Innisfail. Stopped and had a look around. Not much open as it is Sunday. Drove to Flying Fish Point. Very quiet sleepy area on the water. Nice caravan park. Realising we had run out of gas, both cylinders, we went back into Innisfail to go to BCF. After coming back to the ...

Luckily the viewing point is way up Ina quite big hill so no way he could eat us for ...

          Will we see a Cassowary on the Cassowary Coast???

We're fortunate that we've been put on a site at the edge of the park & so are not totally surrounded by other vans. It also means we can see the beach and it is only a 2 minute walk away, which is lovely. The weather is sunny & 24 but has been very windy.

While they were setting up a local turned up with his 4 wheeled motor bike and helped move the boat trailer, and with a lot of effort and waves pounding the boat they put it on , unfortunately the boat was too heavy for the motorbike, so norm eventually pulled the boat out.
