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

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

We have travelled in our caravan from North West Tasmania, this has been our favourite caravan site, and so relaxing. We planned on staying 2 nights but ended up extending to 5 and would have happily stayed longer but had other arrangements. We hope to return soon. Lise

I had read previous reviews about management but made the unfortunate error to still stay here. The location is beautiful but ruined but very unprofessional people. We were firstly "welcomed" by a surly woman who barked orders at her guests. The second night both managers turned up at our campsite highly intoxicated, yelling and falsely accusing our group of lighting... More

This is such a nice location, UNFORTUNATELY the management team is extremely RUDE and DISRESPECTFUL. Had a Small quiet dog that was asleep and never left our side or barked, manager barged into our camp in front of all our family's threatening to take it to the pound if its not on a leash, then followed up by telling my...
