Stayed in one of the ensuite cabins whilst in Normanton for work. It was basic, but clean, and the air con in the room was a welcome relief from the hot and humid weather that the Gulf is famous for. The pool looked very welcoming and had people in it on a few of the days I was there. I... More

Not sure what Jonoas132 is talking about. The mangers are very friendly and more than helpful. The rooms are spotless as is the pool. Think you may be talking about the park at the other end of town which we by passed as the pool was green and the mangers rude. This place has the biggest pool which is looked... More

New owners have taken over the tourist park.They were very rude and the park standard has slipped dramatically since our last stay. The pool, which was always a highlight has turned into a green mess. The rooms are not as clean as they used to be. Including dirty sheets and towels. We will be staying at the gulf lander motel...

The management seems to have changed at Normanton Tourist Park. I’d read several TravelAdvisor reports of rude and unwelcoming treatment, but I received nothing but unfailing courtesy during my two night stay there. Our group even had our bags taken to our cabins by electric cart. We were on a six day Gulflander-Savannahlander railway package, and had arrived from Cairns... More

We were camping in tents so we were very happy when the owner gave us a spot on a piece of grass he had been cultivating near the pool. The park generally is dusty and dry as most parks are in this area because of lack of rain. Facilities were basic but clean. Pool was a good size and really... More

Dusty site with some shade but it is the outback! The amenities were outdated and rudimentary. The washing machines were in high demand after the dusty roads but the weather dried everything very quickly. The drawback was the relentless generator noise from the business and warehouses behind the park- no sleep, fish or muddies for 3 days!

This place is quite all right and has what you need without being anything special. The pros of the place are it is central, so a very easy to walk for pubs to dinner (the Albion hotel recommended), the cabins have a basic kitchenette and large fridge for self-catering and it does have leafy surrounds. The cons are that the... More

Having read negative reviews of this park I did not know what to expect but our stay was pleasant and the reception was friendly and helpful. Pool is great and as cold as a mother in laws kiss after a long drive from Cloncurry. We have to remember that this is outback Queensland and luxury is mostly lacking.One of the... More

We have been staying in cabins on our trip, this was listed as a cabin, it was a small worker room with shower/toilet kitchenette, double bed. Very basic, I didn't think all that clean, but was all that was available. Lady on reception was very friendly that's about the best thing about the place
