Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

We are very lucky to have some great wildlife around us. The dawn chorus is sometimes load (birds calling). The bush hut is one of two huts we have joined by a large deck. It is a lovely rustic A frame. It is within 72 metres of the beach sandwiched between a habitat reserve and a marine park. 25 minutes from Townsville. There is a basic kitchen: fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and bar b que and we can lend you any bits of kitchen ware you might need.

The Bush Hut is very cosy and a lovely, quiet place to stay and unwind. Pete and Libby were friendly and welcoming, Peter met us off the ferry and lent us stinger suits. Definitely a great place to stay.

This is a very quiet part of the island except for the birds which can get a bit noisy at times. You may get a visit from our possums and you will always hear from our resident curlews and scrub fowl.

Getting around

The hut is close to the bus stop only 300 m away and taxis will come to the door. The ferry terminal is a 10-15 minute walk.
The dive shop, supermarket, chemist, bottle shop and three restaurants are …
