About the location

We are approximately a 1 hour drive north from Cairns. The nearest town of Mossman is 4km away which has all the facilities of a typical Australian town; supermarkets, Olympic-sized pool, bowls club, golf course, restaurants, hotels, hospital etc. Newell Beach is located between two rivers which provide great fishing however they are known crocodile habitats and croc-wise behavior is important. Port Douglas has a life-saver patrolled beach which is netted during the wet season from November to May when jellyfish may be present.
Mossman golf club is 2km from our house.
We are located well for visits to the World Heritage listed Daintree rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef and islands. Cairns is a 1 hour drive via a picturesque coastal road. Cairns has an international airport and a large number of tourist attractions including trips to offshore reefs and islands and to the Atherton Tablelands up in the surrounding ranges.
