The Lodge is an award winning Queenslander pole home. Guest accommodation, which is separate to the main house, is fully ensuite. We have a great swimming pool with a waterfall feature and beach entry - it has just got to be the best in the area. The colourful grounds have a tropical feel to them - lots of native plants to attract scores of birds and butterflies, including the iridescent Ulysses butterfly and its cousin the Cairns Birdwing. If you fancy a few cuttings from the garden just ask Mick (the head gardener, waiter, repair man etc..) - he will gladly oblige.
There is a large guest lounge - complete with TV, DVD, stereo, library, games (Trivial Pursuit, chess, backgammon etc..) and brochures for all the tour operators in the area. And all the tour operators pick up and drop off for free at the Lodge. (Gets better all the time!!) We have the full set of 12 Fawlty Towers episodes and 8 Yes Minister episodes on DVD - so if it is raining there is plenty of entertainment here at the Lodge. (Heaven - or what ??)
We have a resident cassowary that visits the Lodge each morning - so if you have not seen this magnificent and endangered bird in the wild - this is your chance. Other wildlife around the house include a pair of nesting Yellow Sunbirds, the Wompoo Fruit Dove, several Honeyeaters and a very inquisitive Rusty Monitor.
Mission Beach is blessed with several excellent restaurants which are all close by. If you are a bit tired of eating out then by all means use our BBQ, and have a romantic candlelit dinner on our upper verandah overlooking the floodlit garden.
Extreme sports are available here - white water rafting and Sky Diving - but most of all you will be knocked over by the tranquility and serenity of Mission Beach.
So what else do you get for your money ?? Well, we serve the yummiest brekky on offer in all Queensland (probably !!). And how good is this folks - we offer complimentary drinks - tea, coffee, soft drinks and BEER. Wow !! what a bargain.
If you really insist, you can have a go on our ride-on mower - about two hours should do the trick. We have a couple of bikes that you can use, if you fancy a bit of excercise. Laundry facilities are here, iron and ironing board (surely not on holiday ??) and of course Internet access.
It's all here at Licuala Lodge - why stay anywhere else ??
Please note that the Lodge is NOT suitable for children under the age of five.
