    Cullen Bay Marina - It's around a 30 minute walk down a hill to the marina. So we suggets a cab if you aren't into walking. Whatever you do you must go there for a look or a meal. It is a beautiful marina. Starting from Mitchell Street the walk is about the same 45mins on a slow stroll.

    After the hustle and bussle of the entertainment district in the CBD about 1klm on it broadens out to units and apratments on either side of the road as shown in the pictures on the left and right here.

    At the end of Mitchell Street turn right and 300 meters into Lambell Terrace along you see the roundabout or if your coming from Smith Street it's on the same road.

    Looking at the round about from Smith Street the Sky City Resort is directly down the hill 500 meters in front of you and next to that is Mindel Beach.

    The signage at the roundabout is very good and hard to get lost. Veering left at 11o'clock on the dial is the road down to Cullen Bay Marina.
