Is the pool heated? Our pool is lovely and secluded within the property, thankfully with the warm weather in Queensland it isn't required to heat the pool.

Can you see the whales from the beach? When it comes to seeing whales unfortunately you cannot see them from the beach, the bay is famous for it's quiet waters where the calves learn to breach. While staying at the property between July and October it is a must do to book a cruise out to meet the whales, we are more than happy to help.

Do I need to pay a security deposit? Yes, to confirm all bookings we process payment for your first nights' accommodation. At the time of check-in we are required to sight this same card, if the card has DEBIT written on the front it is actually a savings card and we will take a security deposit on arrival of $100.

We recommend if you have a DEBIT card that you bring the security deposit in cash to avoid any inconvenience.
