Cardwell is a really small town on Australia's east coast, in north Queensland. In this town you will find a diverse range of landscapes and you may find it the perfect place for relaxing or being adventurous. This town looks like a peaceful resort town, but is definitely a place where you can experience some adrenaline activities or explore some wild places.

Cardwell was the first town to be settled north of Bowen, and now is known for being the only town in the world where two World Heritage listed areas adjoin. Also very popular is the forest drive, twenty-six kilometers round trip, and a few swimming holes and picnic spots.

Is really easy to get to Cardwell, as it is on the coast -- all the national coaches pass by town and most of them stop here. If you're traveling by car, you will find this town two hours north from Townsville or forty-five minutes south from Mission Beach.

There is also the opportunity of finding some farm work nearby, and the hostels in Cardwell are the best places to ask around about jobs. There are only a few options for hostels in Cardwell, but they are not usually fully booked. The hostels have all the facilities you need and are not very expensive. Cardwell's hostels are probably the best place to ask some advice on the main activities you can do around and the best places to visit. Don't forget that the town itself is very small and you will not have so much to do after sunset, so the hostels in Cardwell will be the most likely spot where you will be hanging around.
