My husband and I camped here on one of the grassed sites last week for 2 nights. Very clean amenities, safe environment, friendly staff, beautiful pool. Little ducks wandering around and close to the beach, shops and cafes. Looking forward to our next visit!

It was a nice clean unit and had everything that we needed in it. Ours was air conditioned which I think is imperative to have specially in summer time as Hervey Bay... More

Hi Carollee, I’m disappointed you were not satisfied with the Studio accommodation you booked; yes we do have a cheaper range in accommodation, our Budget cabin range introduced in March 2014 is self catering also cheaper but it does not include linen as being budget you bring your own or hire linen.

We recently stayed in one of the cabins and it was very relaxing and refreshing. It was quiet although there were other cabins around us. Very clean and great value for money. I am in a wheelchair and found this accommodation most suitable for my needs.
