Cardwell Beachcomber Motel and Tourist Park

Caravan Park - Queensland


Cardwell Beachcomber Motel and Tourist Park is located on the beachfront in the seaside village of Cardwell, a leisurely two hour drive from Cairns or Townsville along the "Great Green Way"(Highway 1).  Cardwell is within an easy drive of Cairns and Townsville airports and is serviced by national bus lines and Queensland Rail.

Action packed or sit back and relax. Cardwell is renowned for its great fishing and crabbing and is the gateway to the world famous Hinchinbrook Island and Thorsborne Walking Trail. Cardwell is a boaties paradise with miles of sheltered creeks and waterways to explore and numerous islands and reefs offshore, offering excellent reef fishing.

Within a short drive of Cardwell are many attractions including national parks, walking trails, historical points of interest, spectacular waterfalls and freshwater swimming holes. The Cardwell Beachcomber Motel and Tourist Park with its beachfront location overlooking Hinchinbrook, Goold and Dunk Islands offers a great base from which to explore this unique region of tropical North Queensland. Perhaps that is why so many of our guests book for one night but end up staying for several days or more! 

So come join us at Cardwell Beachcomber Motel & Tourist Park!! 

Our park covers six tropical acres with sites to suit the largest fifth wheeler or the smallest two man tent. We offer shady powered sites, many with slabs. For your convenience we have a centrally located amenities block with disabled facilities, free electric BBQ's and well equipped camp kitchen. We offer nightly drive thru and weekly rates during off peak periods. Special rates may apply. We are pet friendly subject to our pet rules. Miles of beach and walkways at our doorstep for your enjoyment - watch out for the crocs! Relax around our tropical salt water pool or enjoy a late afternoon drink or evening meal at our beachfront restaurant.

Disappointed. Park needs some TLC, we paid $40.50 (gday disc). Amenities seem half renovated but were clean. Nice pool. Has restaurant & bar on site (didn't use). The beach view cabins look really nice. Has non swimming beach across the road with a good walk/cycle track into town & beyond. Great local shops.

NO CMCA DISCOUNT! though they gave it to us anyway. We were told they were no longer part of the club. All that aside it is a great site on a great location.

We were very happy with our site location along the fence. The sites are a little bit tight with your van beside the neighbours car but ok. Across the road is a wide cement path that parallels the sea for at least a kilometre in each direction which made for a pleasant walk. We’d definitely stay here again.
