I love this place for the dog friendly units being able to take your doggie friend with you is so special. The owners are super friendly and it's usually pretty quiet. The beach walking is lovely and peaceful.

The accommodation is on the outskirts of Mackay, which means it was very peaceful and tranquil. The motel was very clean and contained all the necessities for a quality stay. The pool and common area was very tidy and relaxing to spend time in.

Great spot, aircon was a bit noisy, everything else was fantastic. Friendly staff, beautiful place. Walking to a great beach very quiet area. Self contained, no need to go anywhere (though the fish and chips just down the road are great) We will be back.

Located just north of Townsville, this place is a hidden gem. The unspoilt ocean beach is just a short walk through the foreshore. The accommodation is well-equipped and comfortable. Best to bring all your food, as only the basics are available locally. This is a peaceful place for a few days relaxing, walking, bird-watching, and just winding down. We travelled...

This is what we said last year: "We stumbled on Balgal a year ago and vowed to return as we liked it so much. The other reviewers are right-- Balgal is paradise. Ros and Terry are gracious hosts and the units are fully equipped. We'll be back next year!" Well, we came back. We enjoyed the place and Terry and...

Have stayed 2 nights at these beautiful units and have been very impressed, not only with the clean, we'll equipped rooms but our hosts who are friendly and helpful. This place is reasonably priced, only $125 for 4 adults and a child in a spacious air conditioned room with the use of countless dvd's, toys and board games to amuse...

My husband & I recently stayed two nights at these lovely units and we just loved everything about the place. It's certainly a hidden gem. The units are very clean and comfortable and have everything in them that you could possibly want. The gardens are very tropical and attract heaps of beautiful butterflies and the number of different varieties of...
