What a unique place. Quite spectacular, the scenery, the views, the wildlife, the tours and services offered by the resort. Special mention to the 4×4 tour; small group, expert guide going to places otherwise inaccessible. Should be on the top ten places to visit in Queensland! Make sure you arrive early and allow a couple of days, so much to see and do.
