We were at the park with a camper van when the Cyclone hit we owners really looked after their guests and ensured everyone was safe. Opening up 3 motel rooms for the people with vans to use and shelter. They got the park re-opened after trees fell across roadways in double quick time and offered all sorts of advice they... More

Not the best, and not the worst. Staff were friendly, place was clean and tidy. But for me it was just a stopping point, on the way up to port Douglas. No wow factor. But just OK . I would go back, but again just as a rest stop

Stayed here 1 night, it has a great pool with sunloungers around and a friendly, family clientele. We stayed in our campervan on a powered site which was great, the bathroom blocks were clean and well kept. 12 year old brother and sister enjoyed the bouncy pillow thing and the kids play area. No free wifi, shame. Overall it was... More

Second time using the park as an overnight stop on our way through. Rooms always clean and everything you need for a comfortable nights sleep before another days driving. Nice for a swim to unwind and to placate the kids after being stuck in the car. Easily accessible from the highway, quiet and close to the city for eateries. Seems... More

We stopped at the caravan park for 1 night on our way to Airlie Beach. We stayed in a sunset villa (2 adults and 2 teens). The Villa was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We utilised the pools and the tennis court, the jumping pillow was a bit hot as there is... More

We have stayed at this park 3 times now. Our stay in December 2014 was pleasant. The park has New Managment with great ideas especially the great school holiday activites. The 2 swimming pools were lovely to cool off in, and there is a new jumping pillow for those energetic children. The park grounds are greening up nicely as a... More

The toilet was dirty when we arrived. The bathroom tap doesn't turn off. The floors are filthy.Feels grubby and outdated.the room is small and crowded. Filling the kettle and washing the dishes extremely difficult and unhygienic in the bathroom sink

We stayed here just one night. The facilities were nice and clean, staff friendly. There is a playground for kids that seemed good and a small pool. We would recommend this site for a short stay. It's close to a main road so there is some traffic noise and close to many shops for restocking.

Stopped here for 1 night on the way to Cairns & 1 night on the way back to Sydney in a tropical villa which was meant to be the better accommodation available. Arrived very early (5am) on Xmas morning and after waking up management (sorry about that) was allowed to checkin to our villa. We were very grateful for this... More

First impression was that place look from the outside a bit rundown. Our room smelt that bad that we could not stay in the room more than a minute. Changed room for as and the second room was not much better so my family decided to go home, charged us for the night we where only there for a hour... More
