Dining whilst at Kingfisher Park Birdwatchers Lodge

Eating In

Our units are self catering so you will have to purchase your food supplies before you arrive as Julatten has no shops. If travelling from Cairns along the the Captain Cook Highway we suggest you stop at the IGA supermarket (open 7 days) situated at the junction of the Port Douglas turn-off (turn right at the roundabout, then left into the carpark next to the Rainforest Habitat), or at Woolworth's supermarket in Mossman (6km beyond the turn-off to the Rex Highway). If travelling from Cairns via the Kennedy Highway there are both a Coles (open 7 days) and IGA supermarket (open 7 days) in Mareeba. Mount Molloy (10km away) has a small general store supplying the basic groceries.

Just a couple of minutes drive along the Rex Highway from Kingfisher Park, towards Mossman, is Barramundi Gardens where you can buy frozen fillets of the famous Australian fish barramundi, which are farmed here. They also sell frozen green (i.e. raw) prawns in the shell.


Eating Out

1.5km along the Rex Highway, towards Mossman, is the Julatten Hotel. Open Wednesday evening and 11.30am to late Thursday to Sunday.

10km along the Rex Highway, towards Mareeba, is the Mt Molloy National Hotel. They serve good pub food at reasonable prices, lunch and dinner daily plus beer and wines, which you can also takeaway. Light meals are also available for dining in or takeaway.

Just up from the hotel is the Mexican Café and Takeaway whose burgers are reputed to be the largest in Australia. .
