      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.

      ... down, almost like a ghost town - very eerie. Gav said he was happy to volunteer if they need a chippy when they start the rebuild. Dunk Island would be a tough office!

      Today we ventured about 50km west to the town of Mena Creek, to visit the fascinating historical landmark of Paronella Park. Paronella Park was a residence built by Spanish migrant Jose Paronella in the 1930s. It literally is a castle in the rainforest, ...

      ... is a 4x4 track around, it’s always 'Can we do it.’ There is a lot more of Australia than I anticipated. If I had to go back to one place that we’ve already been to, it would be Coral Bay by a mile. I am already planning to do the Old Telegraph Track when I am older. We only did about 15km on it and just want to do more. Personally I think I’ve learnt more in 5 months than a 3-4 terms at school! I couldn’t have done this amazing trip without ...

      ... some amazing and remote territory. Nothing had stopped us or slowed us down. It was the perfect time to get a break down. Even a day earlier would have been difficult although it would have kept us travelling longer. Anyway, the camper is at the repair shop and should be ready in a few days for the trip up the Cape.

      Minus the camper we arrived in Mission Beach early afternoon. This means no more blog until we head up the Cape. So long.

      ... br> About a kilometre into the walk on the traditional track we came upon a Cassowary. Two others had taken themselves into the forest to the right. This large male continued to walk in front of us but when we stopped he did too. He paced from side to side then began walking towards us. We stood to the side and he walked right past us, close enough to touch him, but of course we didn't. He was breath taking, his colours were outstanding, what an ...

      White Water Rafting in Mission Beach

      A travel blog entry by faraway-fantasy on Jul 31, 2014

      ... our boat up then tried to get back on and literally spent 6 hours in the water! I was doing so well until we went down one deep rapid causing the guy opposite me to loose his footing and end up rugby tackling me off the side of the boat - this resulted in a huge bruise down my leg! Awesome!
      If anybody is thinking of doing The white water rafting I would definitely recommend it, such a good laugh with the instructors and a full day off adrenalin including a free ...
