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 - 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 Ulysses butterfly. If you fancy a few cuttings from the garden just ask Mick (the head gardener, waiter, repair man etc..) - he will gladly oblige.
The Lodge is set in beautiful serene tropical rainforest, just 1.5 kms from the beach. The nearest beach, shops and restaurants are just a couple of minutes by car, or a pleasant 20 minute stroll.
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. Almost 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 Fawlty Towers episodes and 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 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 breakfast on offer in all Queensland (probably !!).
If you really insist, you can have a go on our ride-on mower - about two hours should do the trick. If you fancy a bit of excercise there is a gym nearby. Laundry facilities are here, iron and ironing board (surely not on holiday ??) and of course Wireless 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 ten.

Travel South along the Bruce Highway to El Arish. Turn left for Mission Beach. Follow the road (for about 14 kms) and just before entering Mission Beach you pass a Mitre 10 hardware store and an AutoSpares shop on the right. About 50m after the shops take a right (signposted Cassowary Drive, Wongaling Beach, South Mission Beach, Tully). One km on the right is Mission Circle - which has one of those blue B&B Accommodation signs on the corner. Simple!
Head North on the Bruce Highway. Just after the town of Tully there is a right turn for Mission Beach. Follow that road for approx 20 kms until you come to a roundabout with Woolworths on the right. Mission Circle is third left after the roundabout - about 1 km. There is a big yellow Licuala Lodge road sign on the corner. Too Easy!
There are standard coach services from Cairns to Mission Beach, and also from Townsville to Mission Beach.
There is also a regular coach shuttle service from Cairns airport to Mission Beach. When you arrive at Mission Beach, simply give us a call and we'll pick you up in a couple of minutes !!!
