Accompanying any visit to Cape Gloucester Resort is a stopover for a couple of quiet drinks at our fabulous open air bar. Set under the pavilion roof and decked in timber, the bar is adjacent to our 25 metre salt water resort pool, where you can watch the kids play. You will be tempted by our selection of beers, spirits or select from our cocktail menu. A "Gloucester Sunset " or Tropical Summer" ideally matching the tropical setting. Enjoy your refreshments while also taking in the sea views.

We welcome day visitors to the resort, which is accessible by car. You will think that you are at an island resort, as our Westerly aspect and absolute beach front looks over Edgecumbe Bay to Bowen and the mountain ranges beyond.

No visit is complete without a walk on the beach with most guests staying on to capture the sun as it sets over the water.

We look forward to serving you soon at "The Oar" bar.
