Artists, writers and creative folk

Our region is an inspirational place for all artisans.

Cardwell is perched on the edge of the Coral Sea, looking out towards the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. We have magnificent vistas of the majestic peaks of Hinchinbrook Island and the sanctuary of the Brook Isles, Bedarra, Dunk and Goold Islands are all just offshore.

Our warm tropical waters are home to Dugong and Turtles. On a calm day, when the water's surface turns to glass, you can actually hear them break the surface of the water and draw breath. If our ocean vistas are not inspiration enough, we have a backdrop of the Wet Tropics World Heritage listed Cardwell & Kirrima Ranges, dense and ancient rainforests, thundering tropical rivers, crystal clear tropical streams and some of the rarest and most precious creatures on earth.
