To get an idea of the destruction caused by the cyclone in March, have a drive by Shute Harbour. It still looks like the day after. The terminal there is a wreck. The only services running are the barge service to Hammo and some Sunsail...More

There is not a whole lot to do actually. Have a coffee or go for a walk on the beach board walk which follows the beach line. There are lots of little Cafes on the walk. Enjoy😀
