    Hello! I was wondering what is the best way to get here without a rental car? I'll be coming over from Cairns or Port Douglas, so trying to work out if it is possible to come and stay!

    The only way I know is to rent a car. Ask Marion, the proprietor of Cow Bay Homestay. She will know how to advise you.
