We stayed overnight in a cabin, myself, husband and son. The cabin was comfortable clean and well equipped, although the kids beds are in the main area and so my toddler refused to sleep until we all went to bed. Overall though, friendly staff, convenient location and clean comfortable accommodation

We stayed in a basic cabin, very small with kitchenette and own bathroom. It was difficult to navigate around the bed (which was as hard as a rock) to the bathroom area (watch out not to stub your toe on the metal bed leg!) Location was quiet. Amenities building contained laundry facilities. Unfortunately although wi-fi was free it didn't work... More

Sorry but my experience in the Budget cabin was a bit disappointing and I would think twice before I stayed again. In comparison to other accommodation I felt the price for the budget cabin with no en suite and a very old and dated interior was a bit much. Their extra person is worth $15 which is much more expensive... More

We only stayed one night and used their en-suite services, but we felt very welcome and the staff were very helpful. They recommended we go to the Great western steak hotel for a very good Australian steak. They had a bull rodeo arena and show. The interior and atmosphere was very American but the service was certainly NOT. It was... More

Reception and check in good, quick and friendly service. Villa we rented was clean and has all we need. facilities such as laundry etc are conveniently located and the village is fairly close to restaurants and town. I believe it is good value for money

Just in Rockhampton for a few days with the van. The location is good for accessing the areas we needed & easy to get to. The area it the park is a little tight for large vans & the traffic, planes & trains can be a little noisy at night. Other than that a very nice & clean van park.

We stayed at this campsite for one night on our way from Bundaberg to Mackay and arrived quite late. The staff was friendly, but the campsite was quite expensive for 3 people and a powered site ($48,20), given that the location is really not nice - next to the highway. Furthermore, as a tourist it seemed strange to me that... More

Oh dear! We had such high expectations and everything was going so well until it was time to turn in. The top bunks hadn't been made. Apparently they don't do that for you even though you pay for the additional persons staying. So we pull back the throws to discover blood stains on the mattress protector. Lift the mattress and...

My wife, young son and I rented a two bedroom cabin for a weekend recently and were quite impressed with the Southside Holiday Village. We initially looked at some of the new apartment hotels near the river but are very happy that we chose our cabin at Southside. We enjoyed a very comfortable stay for less than half the price...
