What a brilliant place to stay. The cabin was presented very nicely and very clean. The beach is right on your doorstep, just through some dunes. I totally recommend staying here with families and children. The best part was the thick warm quilts and comfy beds.

Just spent 10 days at this lovely park. Clean amenities, quiet, relaxing time. Enjoyed fishing sightseeing and fires in evening. Friendly managers. Recommend this park to anyone right next door to the beautiful Innes National Park.

The management was nice and helpful aswell and it was right on the beach and 5 minute drive to the Innes National park 😊 if you want somewhere to eat the Marion Bay Tavern does amazing meals and also Pizza take away.

Check in was polite but a little reserved. Later we found out it was a relieving manager on duty. As the heading indicates the park is in a bush setting. One could be forgiven if they thought they were bush camping but with all the extras thrown in. The extras include:- A range of cabins which this report does not... More

I found that the Male Manager at this caravan park is very rude and has no people skills at all it might be wise to take a new career path , Marion bay is not a caravan park located as a stop over to continue your journey its at the bottom of the peninsula which means most people want to... More

We stayed at the Marion Bay Caravan Park and I was pleasantly surprised on arrival at how clean and neat everything was.
