We were travelling north from Sydney to Cairns and this location was perfect on one of the longer drives from Hervey Bay to Mackay. It is close to the main highway. It has a well kept swimming pool, good facilities and friendly staff. The plots are a good size and it is surprisingly quiet.

Beds were very comfortable. Air con was fantastic with a split system in every room, we very much appreciate it. Staff were very friendly and accommodating... More

This is budget accommodation, and met all our requirements, but the staff were the high point. Samantha and the maintenance officer in particular went beyond the call of duty. The cabin provided all that is necessary, and the location gave us easy access to the Caves, Yeppoon and Byfield National Park which were our targets. However, the 'free' wifi did... More

Lovely staff on checkin. Stayed in standard motel room. Clean and aircon was on when we arrived (most welcome on a 38 degree day). Room very small, tight squeeze even for a couple (would be perfect for a solo traveller). But was just what we needed for a stop over. Will stay again, but will book a bigger room next... More

Last minute fatigue break. Call when coming into Rocky and the staff were very helpful in providing a cabin, being a Big 4 member made the accommodation cheap. The single beds were a bit short for standard size person. The kids enjoyed the pool and having Pizza Hut across the road made dinner easy.

Arrived a little late but staff had been proactive and sorted out late arrival access with no hassles. Clean cabin. Quiet place to stay. Disappointed that we had no time to make use of one of the two pools or the jumping pillow which the kids love.

We found it difficult to find single unit accommodation for 3 adults and 3 children in Rockhampton during school holidays particularly because our budget was rather limited. We settled on a Superior Palm Villa at Big 4 Discovery Holiday Parks. Because we were on the road for a few hours after office closing time we arranged to take an SMS... More

This is not just a caravan park, there are very well priced motel rooms hidden away here also. Very clean and comfortable. Excellent location right on the highway, but surprisingly quiet. The grounds are well maintained and it has a beautiful pool. Reception staff were friendly and efficient, providing a speedy check-in. I'd highly recommend this for people needing a... More

We stopped off here for a night on our way to Cairns and thought it was a great park. It's handy to everything and the two pools were lovely. They had a blow up waterslide for the kids and they really loved this. The jumping pillow and playground is fenced which was peace of mind for the kids while playing.... More
