Orgies return to hedonistic nude resort at Mossman

A nudist resort wants to bring back swingers and sex parties in a bid to boost sagging tourism figures.

A nudist resort wants to bring back swingers and sex parties in a bid to boost sagging tourism figures.

The White Cockatoo resort in Mossman, near Port Douglas, north Queensland, is promoting an adults-only “anything goes” month of hedonism for March next year.

Owner of the White Cockatoo Tony Fox yesterday said it was time to lift a self-imposed swinger ban.

“Tough economic times call for stiff measures,” Mr Fox said.

“We’ve taken the bull by the horns and it’s going nuts; we’re close to fully booked.

“It will be a hedonism resort, where anything goes for a month. We’re not using the words sex or swingers, but it doesn’t take rocket science to work out what it means.”

Three years ago the controversial resort, once billed as the nation’s top group-sex hotspot for swingers, hit the headlines when it closed its doors to partner-swapping.

The ban followed a series of out-of-control sex parties and orgies where, in one case, police were called to evict six swingers after a free-for-all sex romp in a chalet.

In another, a naked husband-and-wife in their mid-50s upset others with a rowdy display of balcony sex before breakfast.

Other guests complained of being propositioned for group sex by a stranger in her 30s.

Mr Fox said he had since imposed a strict set of rules for the ordinary nudist season.

Cairns Catholic Bishop James Foley warned: “It might only end up cheapening the whole resort operation for a short-term gain.

“Anyone who goes to a hedonist’s party goes at their own risk.

“You’ve got to wonder what sort of people go and why. Where is the moral code of behaviour and how do you stop jealousies and fights?”

But Cairns Regional Mayor Val Schier said she was not opposed to the “month of hedonism”.

“People in tropical north Queensland are extraordinarily creative,” Ms Schier said.

“And if they can create a business opportunity that does not offend any neighbours or harm anybody that is fine.

“It is tough economic times and as long as it is with consenting adults, then there is no problem.”

And local tourism chief Doug Ryan said: “As long as whatever they do stays within the law then good on them.”
