My friend and i stayed here on the 4th February 2015.for one night. The site is carefully and tastefully planted with trees and bushes. The cabin was very nice. The bedding was very clean as was the bathroom and towels, and there was ample equipment etc in the kitchen. The site has a small but very nice pool. There is... More

I'll warn everyone that work has paid for my accommodation here - not paid for by myself. When you ask for an internet code, it's time-based rather than data-usage-based. Which is great when you want to watch a few youtube videos, check up on some work emails (which include PDFs and images that can get quite large), and go through... More

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
