UPDATE 1st Jan 2016.
Portland Roads Beach Shack has been sold. The new owner is no longer running it as an accommodation business.
This is the place we
are were caretaking. We have the cottage halfway up the hill, and this is where the visitors stay. This video shows the stairs, the deck and the view from the deck

The Beach Shack accommodates up to 4 people with a double and two single beds. It is self contained with a bathroom and cooking facilities for self-catering. The living area is on a good sized deck with great views looking out over the Coral Sea. The house is set back from the road for privacy and sits high on the hill to catch the sea breeze. Portland Roads is in the Tropical Rain Forest of Far North Queensland, 600kms North of Cairns. Portland Roads is a great stop if you
- are on your big 4×4 trip up to the tip of Cape York,
- want a break from camping
- are exploring nearby Iron Range (Kutini-Payamu) National Park, a favourite with birdwatchers,
- want to check out Aboriginal Art of the Lockhart River Art Gang.
