Great for Families with Young Children

We took our young kids (6 and 9) in mid-April. Every stage of the visit was handled very nicely by the staff starting with checking in at the warf, boarding the ferry, and being welcomed at the island. The kids really enjoyed the included activities including the tours, walks, kayaking, and snorkeling. If the kids were older and more experienced we would have taken a day trip to the outter reef for snorkeling or diving. The fish feeding and glass bottom boat were fun. The telescope viewing could be improved with a better scope, green laser pointer, and fewer white lights, but was still enjoyable especially for the younger kids. It was fun to see Orion upside down and the Big Dipper in a strange location. The rooms were very nice, spacious, and comfortable. The house cleaning staff did a great job keeping the place up. The breakfast buffet was very good and the dinners were very good as well. I'd say they were a better value than most restaurants in Cairns. The only downsides for us were: 1. Flakey internet. They are working on getting better service in the near future. 2. Cigarette smoke blowing in from the smoking area or the beach tends to ruin the rainforest/natural feel of the place. 3. Large, noisey groups of Chinese on day trips. Just avoid the daytripper areas and you'll more or less be OK.

The picnic baskets available from the restaurant were fun for a sunset dinner on the beach.
