Friends of mine from Brisbane recommended that I go and stay at the resort and recently my partner and I enjoyed a 6 day stay. The chef spoiled us and we spent each day walking on the beach and at night seeing the penguins which was very enjoyable. It was also a good spot to use as a base to...

I stayed at this resort for my 'baby moon' in 2010 and loved it so much I am in the middle of booking a return trip. The location is so unique and divine. The penguin viewing platform was fabulous to relax with a wine and watch the little things squeak and scurry for their burrows. I have spoken to the...

This is my third visit to diamond island resort and just love the place. The scenery is breathtaking from every angle and the resort is relaxing and has a fabulous restaurant with food to die for. The rooms are really spacious with the most comfortable beds ever with super nice pillows and doonas. Like sleeping in the clouds. A short...

They plan on making this a premier resort on the North East coast. The location is amazing, incredible views, penguins to chat to, huge comfortable beds and lovely warm rooms. The seafood from the restaurant...

This is in a beautiful location with a near private beach. The Owners were very helpful and easy to deal with, there local knowledge was great and help us in finding places to eat and explore. The room wasn't prefect but there was really nothing to complain about. We were there in August so it was very quiet and almost...

the room was clean and comfortable and the seafood platter was to die for. The new hosts were very friendly as was the owners. The little Penguins were lovely to check out from a private access. We would go back again.

We stayed as a family group (2 x 2adult+2child families + a couple) in 3 different units. Each unit was relatively clean and tidy, the kitchens were well equipped (although no oven), beds were reasonably comfy. Showers are ridiculously small as the bathrooms are an ok size. Only one of the 3 DVD players in our 3 rooms actually worked....

The place is dirty, in dire need of renovatio and proper management, for it has none. Shame as the location was good. Penguin tour is not a tour, as we were kept at a wooden deck and were told penguins would walk pass us as they went home. I counted two, was was told by the dude (penguin guide) it...
