History – ( the dream comes true )
These two guys became firm friends. They travelled overseas, staying in B&B Accommodation in various countries and then visited Tropical North Queensland in 2000 looking to purchase a Bed and Breakfast Accommodation home of their own. They loved the region, returned to Sydney, sold up and moved to Hull Heads , near Tully and Innisfail in far North Queensland with camping gear in a station wagon. After about three months on the road, searching they purchased the Bed and Breakfast property which is now known as The Buoys.

The Bruces both agree this is the best move they’ve ever made and invite you to share their dream by coming to stay at THE BUOYS Bed and Breakfast Accommodation in Hull Heads – the relatively undiscovered jewel in the crown of tropical north queensland holiday destinations.
