This is where your hosts live and work. 20 hectares of protected tropical rainforest and a small eco-lodge and yoga retreat. Be aware that there is a steep 600m walk from the car-park to the Retreat and children under 11 cannot be accommodated. However great views, food and drinks await you and it's probably the best place in Australia to see a Cassowary in the wild. Wear sensible shoes

It's just across the road from the Beach Cottage. Remember that it's not safe to swim from December to April without a stinger suit because of Jelly Fish. The nearest stinger net is a 30 minute walk south down the beach or a 5 minute trip car to South Mission Beach

Not a swimming beach but a great example of littoral rainforest and impressive mangroves. Go there at low tide to explore it best. If you turn right at Holt Rd, then it leads you the little known and private Brookes Beach which is an excellent swimming beach and because it is so private, the area's unofficial nude beach at the northern end of it. Keep in mind that there are no legal nude beaches in Qld.
