Activities

Cape Gloucester Beach Resort offers our guests a wonderland of places to explore and things to do.

  

Beach Walking

Beach walking is an activity that can occupy you for hours. Yours can be the first footprints on the kilometres of sandy beaches fringing beautiful Edgecumbe Bay. Alternatively, take a walk through acres of native bushland.

Birdwatching

Birdwatching can be as simple as sitting at the bar, as feathered friends frequently drop in. For the more avid birdwatcher, the grounds and beaches of our resort host many species of birdlife, ranging from huge Sea Eagles to Brahminy Kites, Butcher Birds and Lorikeets.

Boating

Enjoy the outstanding water activities in the World Heritage Great Barrier Marine Park by bringing your own boat and using our private boat ramp to explore the many islands in the vicinity, including Gloucester Island National Park.

Boat Hire

We can arrange boat hire for reasonable rates through Dingo Beach Watersports, so you can explore or fish on the water. There is the option of smaller dinghies that require no license and larger power boats that require a recreational boating license.

Fishing

The waters adjacent to the resort have yielded many a fish to the keen angler and amatuer. Fish from the beach, or launch your own boat. If you travel to the Gregory River at the Southern end of Edgecumbe Bay, it is reputed to be full of fish and mud crabs.

Group sports

We have a cricket pitch and a beach volleyball court. Equipment is available upon request.

Kayaks

House guests may borrow a kayak. We have a single, two person and a glass bottomed kayak. Explore Passage Islet just 100 metres off the beach or go for a lazy paddle.

Picnicing

Head out along the beach in either direction to find a private place for a picnic, or watch the sun go down. Picnic packs are available from The Oar.

Snorkelling and Diving

Head off with your own gear to explore around Passage Islet. The waters nearby are often shared with a wonderful array of tropical reef fish. Spectacular marine life including turtles, dugongs and dolphins also inhabit the local waters year round.

Swimming

Enjoy our 25 metre salt water resort pool which is a great place to cool off year round. Most months of the year you can enjoy a dip from our sandy beach, which easily drops into the ocean.

Whales

Whales frequent Edgecumbe Bay during the winter months and sometimes can be observed just 100 metres from the shore.
