The Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort in Lucinda, Queensland, has been awarded the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide (AGFG) Readers’ Choice for Townsville and Surrounds for a third consecutive year.
“For three years in a row the readers of the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide have recognised the Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort as one of the best places to stay in its category in the Townsville region,” said owner and operator Michael McKeown. “My wife, Linda, and I have worked hard over the last few years to ensure that our resort exceeds guest expectations in terms of price, quality and service.”
Linda said the Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort had seen an increase in tourists from North Queensland, particularly Cairns and Townsville, who were attracted by the spectacular scenery of Hinchinbrook Island National Park and the world-class fishing.
“The tourism sector, particularly domestic tourism, is strong and we have seen an increase in the use of our conference centre, including for weddings, engagement parties and business-related events,” she said.
The AGFG overview of the Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort, described the tropical getaway just north of Townsville as perched by Hinchinbrook Channel’s pristine waters.
“Sweeping lawns and gently swaying palm trees lead to modern units and comfortable, self-contained bungalow cabins surrounded by lush gardens with views across a glistening ocean,” the overview reads. “A nearby boat ramp provides access to otherwise secluded fishing spots or simply throw in a hand line off the motel’s private jetty.”
Mike said guests, including anglers, could enjoy a BBQ in the facilities area that overlooked the Channel and Hinchinbrook Island in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Other attractions in the Ingham area included Australia’s tallest waterfall, beautiful beaches, rainforest hikes and wildlife.
“It has been fantastic to see our bookings increasing with hikers and campers heading over to trek the world-famous Thorsborne Trail on Hinchinbrook Island,” he said. “Hikers, who can leave their vehicles in protected parking, can be picked up directly from the Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort’s private jetty and taken directly to the island. And our resort is the perfect place to relax for a day or two afterwards, including a cool pool, hot showers, cold drinks and hot food.”
Linda and Mike thanked AGFG and its readers for honouring the resort.
