The trip starts with a one hour boat ride on the Resort's own 'Big Cat' which is a fabulous looking vessel from Marina Mirage which is on the Gold Coast. Here you take off from the elegant Marina Mirage, located next to the 6 star Palazzo Versace, past coves and side beaches until you get to the Island.
You are formally met and greeted and taken as a group to a point where you are given your room package.
The accommodation is reasonable...mine was a room with all the facilities overlooking the front garden where the wallabies graze at dawn and dusk. All rooms overlook this front garden rich with Paper bark gums and tropical foliages.
The restaurant is within the huge luxury pool complex complete with a swim-in bar. There are chairs and umbrellas and small relaxing areas for privacy. It is very elegant and well designed. The restaurant has very reasonably priced meals..continental breakfast was $5.00.
The resort Bus goes to the surf each with views across to the Gold Coast twice a day and is free for guests. The bus stop is possibly the most stunning bus stop in the world...sea eagles behind, GoldCoast skyline before, and the sand are full of Pipis which I collected and took to the chef and for $7.00 he cooked me a feast for my dinner.
It is a very private beach if you are into free sun bathing or total privacy...and the sands are soft and white and the beach virtually people free for 22 kms.
Between the beach and the Resort are marshes resplendent with cabbage Palms and beautiful river gums. This is truly a photographers paradise.
