Dining whilst at Kingfisher Park Birdwatchers Lodge
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, or at Woolworth's supermarket in Mossman. 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.
1½km along the Rex Highway, towards Mossman, at the Mount Lewis Road turnoff is the Highlander Tavern. They serve excellent meals, at reasonable prices, lunch and dinner daily plus beer and wines, which you can also takeaway. Light meals such as pizzas are also available for dining in or takeaway.
The Mount Molloy National Hotel, 10km away, serves counter meals ranging from hamburgers, fish and chips, prawns to steaks – all highly recommended.
Just down from the hotel is the Mount Molloy Café and Takeaway whose burgers are reputed to be the largest in Australia. The Mount Molloy general store also serves great coffee and takeaway meals.
