Friendly, helpful staff, good facilities although 1 laundry does not have a sink. Pool, spa with swim jets great, wonderful massage if you back up to swim jets. Easy 400 m walk or cycle to beach, other parks are closer, but not as quiet. We were able to store camper while at Fraser Island for small cost. You have to... More

We were a group of 34 seniors who stayed in caravans and majority in cabins . The park was clean and well maintained by the staff. My husband and I stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin that had everything for a 3 night stay. The bar-b-cue area and camp kitchen was ideal for our large group to get together. The... More

This park is an example of how a caravan park should be managed. Very friendly and helpful staff who were always out in the park cleaning and maintaing the facilities and assisting guests with check ins and parking. The cleaning and maintenance of the park is exceptional with ground staff checking each site as it was vacated and mowing and... More

I loved the interactive spider, and the proximity to the beach, and the niceness of the staff who were very kind especally when we got into a pickle reversing the van in.Close access to canals with wildlife. Lots of cockatoos.

It was great to find a clean well appointed, roomy and comfortable unit. We also appreciated the well stocked kitchen cupboards with all the things we needed to cook and dine with. The bed was so comfortable and the office staff both welcoming and helpful. It was great being able to have other family positioned nearby. Also we appreciated the... More

Only couple of blocks from Esplanade. This is a great caravan park. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed. We had an ensuite site, which was easy to parking our van. I checked out the ammenities, which were very clean and well maintain. Pool area is great to relax after a day out. We booked a trip to Fraser... More

Lovely place to stay, the rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Some kitchenware could have been cleaner, but otherwise it had everything we needed.we were situated two blocks back from the beach and was reasonably close to amenities. The beach wad lovely and the fishing off the pier was rewarding.

Took the family here for almost 2 weeks. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Facilities were great, everything we needed -even movies on the big screen for the kids for a bit of wind down time. Everything was clean and tidy. Highly recommend.

I travel a lot and stay in parks and motels all across Australia and I have rarely been as impressed with a facility as I was with the Happy Wanderer. There is not one fault to find. We had an ensuite powered site which was well appointed. The grounds were scrupulously maintained, the amenities clean and modern and the leisure... More
