Great spot in a great area. we couldn't expect a better ozzie experience! Loved the Sunsets at Carlo Point, and going fishing as a local. Cool atmosphere in a big green Park. Ladies at the office very kind and useful with the info/tourism point. We could book our tour to go to Fraser Island and Dolphin Cruise as free service.... More

Be aware ... be very aware ... management of this facility are not user friendly. Overcharge and then charge for parking a car. This is not a holiday package ... the angst is over the top with no help other than fleecing money off unsuspecting tourist. Al;l of which sours an otherwise good spot.

We spent a great week here at the unpowered sites with water views. We loved it. Amenities are cleaned constantly and are the best we've ever used. It has a great family feel, kids a all out having fun. A few midges/mozzies but it's near the water so that comes with the territory. Take your spray and its fine. Lovely... More

My sons and I recently stayed for some 'bonding time'. As a holiday park owner and affiliated with a highly respected brand I fully understand the expectations of guests in this day and age. We booked a 2 bedroom villa at what I believe was a very reasonable rate. The tariff was based on 2 people and extra persons where... More

Great park, with spacious camp sites which are flat, perfect for our camp trailer. Really liked how we could pay extra for an additional car to park on our site. Park rules are very relaxed compared to some which is great. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the park. There are lots of mozzies & midgies but everywhere has them. We will... More

This has got some pretty great views with awesome sunsets. We arrived Friday lunchtime and by nightfall I was ready to go home.

Dear Rosie, thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your staying. Sand-flies could be annoying depending on the tides, heat and moon, thus depending on weather conditions spraying it's a good solution. We hope to have you again as our guest. The Management & Staff More

We booked our Australia Day weekend stay in Rainbow Beach at the last minute and as such, were happy to take anything that was available, even though we knew it would be fairly basic. Luckily for us there was one vacant cabin for the three weary travellers who were very thankful for it. Sadly, it had no air conditioning, which... More
