This park is situated quite a way off the Bruce Highway, so it takes a while to get there along a road festooned with wallaby carcasses – far more than is the norm. We had booked in for three nights but after being yelled at and sworn at the male manager we decided not to unhitch and just move on... More

What a taste of paradise. The park is well grassed and set amongst plenty of shady trees and well spaced out. I can quite understand why people come for a couple of days and stay a week. Amenities are good and kept very clean. I cannot understand previous negative comments. This is one of the nicest caravan parks we have... More

I can't understand the negative comments. We have stayed at this park 4 times both in a cabin and in our motor home. I found the cabin to have everything you need. They were clean and comfortable. The van sites are great either grass or a slab. Amenities are clean and as is the pool. The grounds are kept lovely.... More

Excellent park. Managers are fantastic. Don't understand the negative feedback as we have been at the park the last two years and we are heading back again this year. There are a heap of regular visitors who come back every year. Every evening there is a get together at the fire pit which Al lights and everyone has a great... More

The park grounds are poorly maintained. The toilet and showers aren't cleaned and are poorly maintained with shower heads needing replacement. Locks missing from toilet doors.Managers have terrible people skills and are downright rude if encountered. We spoke to other guests and discovered everyone had been charged different rates for the same stay. Also people that paid cash received no... More

The people that run this place need to be gone.they have no people skills. Very slack in looking after the park. We have been there now for 4 years.the grass in the camping area is never mowed even though we have been booked in for 6 mths. We had a bet bet on this this last Xmas. I won.the ammenities... More

We spent 2 nights there and loved it. Kathy was lovely and so were the beaches. Hubby went fishing, and the kids enjoyed the icecream Kathy gave them. The park was quiet, and my kids had fun in the pool. Only problem was the midges! Will be back, with bug repellent!

We had a lovely quiet night, the beach is lovely but as we were travelling from Cairns to Melbourne in the RV didn't stop for long. We were welcomed and would definitely stay there again on our next visit of to Oz

Spent a couple of nights at "Travellers Rest Midge Point" last weekend. Management was extremely rude and abrupt and ready for a fight for any reason. Our visitors who stayed for BBQ were told they had to pay $10 to visit us (in case they used the toilet, which they didn't)- I came up separately and my car was not... More

We have stayed at Travellers Rest on two occasions now, the first time was for only 5 days cut short by cyclone Ita. We loved it so much we just had to return for a few more weeks and I'm sure we be back again. It's just such a beautiful peaceful park right on the beach with heaps of wildlife.... More
