Beach Bar

Beachfront Dining

You’re never far from your next meal at Freedom Shores. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner without having to leave the grounds. Wake up to a complimentary continental breakfast, served in the resort reception, then wander across the lawn to Northerlies Beach Bar & Grill for lunch, dinner and afternoon cocktails by the water.

Daily Resort Breakfast

Enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast every morning, including pastries, seasonal fruits, toast, cereals, yoghurt, tea, juice & coffee. Served from 7am – 9:30am in the resort reception, just opposite the pool deck, it’s the perfect way to start your day in the Whitsundays.

Onsite Restaurant

With a tropical twist on Australian classics, Northerlies offers the best of both worlds, serving everything from pub classics to scrumptious seafood platters. The kitchen stays open all-day long, with lunch and dinner service, and an all-day light bites menu. Eat by the beach or grab a takeaway meal to enjoy in your room or by the pool.
