Close to the Great Barrier Reef and Hinchinbrook Island, Cardwell is a great place to live. Cardwell is a welcoming community, with all of the facilities for comfortable living, and with Townsville and its facilities only 150 kilometres away and 140km away from Cairns, it is possible to enjoy the attractions that both Ingham and Cardwell districts has to offer, and those provided by a metropolitan centre. Check our website for some images of the local area.
Camping, bushwalking, bird watching and fishing are all popular past-times, with several national parks of worldwide acclaim nearby - Hinchinbrook Island (Australia's biggest island National Park), the Great Barrier Reef (a World Heritage site), Spa Pools (swimming hole) are just a few of the many attractions in the area.
The Cardwell area is a mountain biking mecca. The region's mountain biking roots lie in part within its rich history of building access trails, and more recently, the development of other resources like campgrounds, trail sustainability and dual usage.
It's of little wonder why the wildlife flourishes in these areas. The bush is dense, it's quiet and remote and within an hour's drive of Mission Beach, you have enough trails to keep you busy for weeks. Whether it is cycling along the hard-packed sand of Mission Beach before your morning coffee or a more technical ride through the Cardwell Trails network en route to a swimming hole, you'd be hard pressed to find a region that has such diverse mountain bike access, both in terrain and difficulty.
The practice is single doctor practice at the moment but has the capacity to house three (3) full-time Doctors.
