Queensland All Over: Places a bit different to stay
You come to Queensland ....you do not know the names of many of our towns...Oh yes you know Brisbane...and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts ...and Cairns of course...but there is so much more.... and you want to find a hotel...a pub maybe...a camping ground....a hide-a-way that is really super or is just that bit different....well I have some ideas for you.
But before I start naming places to unpack your bags and rest your weary head on a soft feather pillow or your camp bed do go on my virtual tour of Queensland and get a feel for some of the smaller towns out there....
So some different places to stay....well how about the Bull and Barley in Cambooya on the Darling Downs...a fully restored PUB gem from the early 1900's that still retains its original character. (2 hours west from Brisbane)
And now for Sunshine Coast Hinterland and a bit of upmarket LUXURY you will love The Secrets on the Lake tree houses (about 1 1/2 hours north from Brisbane)
Another idea 'no ordinary spot' and where you can CAMP is The Eco Village at Crystal Waters, between Kenilworth and Maleny Sunshine Coast hinterland. (about 1 1/2 hours north from Brisbane)
Now for the BACKPACKERS I have one for you at beautiful Mission Beach......we are in the tropics now halfway between Cairns and Townsville.... Mission Beach Retreat right in the middle of town and right next to the beach. Check out the website.
And further north you can stay somewhere that is not camping , not a motel, and not a hotel nor a resort but restored Railway Carriages Actually have a look at all the options for an UNDARA EXPERIENCE....from Cairns by road (4 hours), coach or the Savannah lander (train)
