From our guests

Travelling Couple

December 2014

"We stayed here for four nights. The hostel is quite big and located right in the centre of town. The woolworths was a 5 min walk and the jetty about 10 mins. There are plenty of restaurants and bars very close to the resort.

We stayed in a room. They were very spacious and clean. TV, toiletries, towels, tea/coffee/milk, fridge, massive bed and really powerful hot shower. The cleaners gave us new towels everyday.

The resort has a really good kitchen with everything you need if you're going self catering. The place was immaculate. The pool area was lovely with music playing through out the day. They also have a bar and a night club with great drink and food offers which are really good for those on a budget. You could get a schooner for $4. People staying at Gilligans also received discounted drinks at night time while outsiders had to pay the full amount. Live music every night and then a DJ. Gilligans also have a great tour office that offer all the tours you can do along the east coast.
I would highly recommend this place if visiting Cairns. Great place to base yourself to do GBR and Cape Tribulation and on the other days enjoy the lively scene."

Kyro (Sydney) @ The Attic

Kyro (Sydney) @ The Attic
Saturday 7th March

Originally starting out his career as a one-man speed metal band in the late-1930s, Sydney’s own pocket rocket Kyro, has been slowly making his mark on the Australian dance music scene. Like, literally… He actually keeps marking his territory everywhere he goes, it’s kinda nasty. Apart from this slightly insignificant bladder problem, Kyro has also caught the attention of DJs across the globe with his powerful electro house originals and remixes.
