The overwhelming impression we had after staying with Vicky and Ted was that they did everything they could to optimize our experience and make us as comfortable and relaxed as possible. They absolutely succeeded!! We stayed at the B&B over Christmas, and they worked very hard to coordinate our activities on Christmas day and Boxing day; no small feat since...

Vicky & Ted went above and beyond to make our stay a most memorable & enjoyable Christmas. We arrived just before Christmas and did not rent a car or arrange any tours before arrival. With Vickys guidance and recommendations we had the most fabulous and carefree Christmas with a suburb reef trip booked by Vicky and then being driven into...

I can add nothing to thegreat praise heaped upon this B&B. It is everything that others have said. I would have rated it at 5 stars except that it is on the flight path for the airport and the aircraft noise started at 4.45 am!! This apart the location is fabulous and everything else is perfect. Well recommended.

Over several years we have stayed in many B&Bs in numerous places, but Billabong B&B stands apart from all the others. The setting, the room, the food, but most of all the hospitality of Vicky and Ted. The standard that Vicky and Ted set is without equal, we have never found such welcoming, attentive and hard working hosts. The breakfasts...

When we arrived here we were mentally and physically exhausted from work, health and everyday trials. From the moment we arrived you could feel the calm and serentiy of the place. Ted & Vicki made us feel we had known them for years. The natural surroundings of the place and the Billabong with the wildlife everywhere just made you want...

We spent two nights at this lovely B & B. Vicky and Ted make you feel very welcome. You are surrounded by a beautiful billabong and the room faced a shaded area where you can see lilies blooming and ducks swimming.

The Billabong B & B on the outskirts of Cairns was an amazing find! We would have stayed longer if we had know it was in such an incredible location.

“Ask for a room on the far side of the house or in the private guest house. The room right off the patio gets a bit of noise from other guests if they get up early for breakfast.”
