We have stayed at a few parks in Cairns in our travells but this park we consider the best for our needs. From the friendly reception when I rang to book to the greeting at reception, clean facilities, suprisingly quiet, good sites, short walk to shopping. More suitable for senior travellers as it is close to the city and if... More

We recently stayed at First City and found the park to be just what we needed. It was clean and tidy with large grassy sites and big shade trees, just what you need in Cairns! We dealt with Mark on check in and found him to be great, he went out of his way to give us information and local... More

HIGHLY recommend this top tourist park, stayed here for 4 nights on our travels and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The owners are wonderful people who offer great service. Park is tidy and very welcoming. Crystal clear pool and very clean facilities. Will be back again soon =)

I too cannot understand previous negative comments. Green pool? Ummmm no - a crystal clear pool with a lovely big green shade cloth to keep the kids out of the sun! Our cabin was clean as was the linen. Yes there was only a grill but they make it VERY clear on the website what they have in the cabins!... More

Good location with good clean facilities. Showers and toilets good, nice communal cooking area with big screen TV, microwave, washing facilities,seating etc. Friendly staff and easy location for travellers passing through. Only complaint was with the noisy indigenous people who frequent the canal/drain area at the side of the park at night. Police need to sort them out.

A bit surprised by the comments already expressed. I can't judge the cabins because I did not occupy one, but the power sites are fine. The showers and toilet facilities are excellent and clean. The Staff I dealt with were friendly. Sure it could do with a bit of a lift especially the power boxes need replacing. But friendly Staff,... More

Dont bother staying. Cabins are unsafe. Smoke alarms dont work. Tag n testing 7 years outdated. You get attacked by stupid plovers. Staff are very rude. They pick on you if you are young. Washing machines put dust and fluff and dirt through your washing. Dryers dont dry your clothes. State of this place was horrible. Would recomend not to... More

Very average welcome, office is an open window at the entrance. Tourist information available outside shop and internet facility. The management need to review their very negative signs at the entrance and also on their park regulations, everything seems to start with an NO. Sites are generally level, all with concrete slabs. Water and electricity points close by, no sullage.... More
