Duke of Orleans bay and Wharton Beach offer spectacular views in a pristine environment. Plenty of exploring to do or relaxing at the beach. The caravan park backs onto the bay and a short walk you are on a beach overlooking Table Island (worth the short rock scramble up) but a short 2 min drive gets you to Wharton Beach... More

Basics facilities but great place to get away from it all. Visited at Easter and was a great place for kids, the park owners even arranged for the easter bunny to visit! Great playground for kids and tennis court. Had a relaxing stay most days you are out at the beaches and seeing the sites, so the caravan park is... More

I've been staying at the Orleans Bay Caravan park for over 12 years, and we have owned our own house there for 8. The caravan park for people planning to stay at the campsites is a true camping experience and is definitely not for people afraid of roughing it, and this basic set up should reflect in the pricing, but...

we just stayed at an unpowered site paid $60 a night (was a bit blown away at the price). Basic facilities-we were up the back on a sandy area-blew a gale so lots of dirty sand. Water taps were one per 4 camping bays. Toilets were a bit of a walk up and over a hill only two showers and... More

This is by far the worst campsite I have ever visited. The surroundings are lovely and wharton beach is amazing but visitors should avoid staying here overnight. The owners are arrogant and dismissive and their inability to manage the site is a blight on the great australian bight. The campsites are filthy and the ablutions are extremely limited. There are...

We stayed at Duke of Orleans Caravan Park for 2 nights. Quite large sites but found the water outlets were in need of repair and could do with more. Camp kitchen and the ablution blocks very basic and consisted of 2 showers and 2 toilet (would find it very busy in the peak season) , but with very nice shower... More

I stayed hear with a group of 5 others from 23-25 May 2014 in the "Bayview" cabin. The cabin was basic which is all you need. It had a little kitchen with gas stove/oven, fridge and cooking utensils. Sleeping arrangements are 2 bedrooms. 1 with a double/queen bed and the other with 2 bunks. There is a kids play park,... More

Orleans Bay Caravan Park is in a fantastic location and is about a 3 km drive to beautiful Wharton Beach then you can 4WD along the beach to the spectacular Victoria Beach, 2 of the most pristine beaches you will ever see. Reception was very basic when we were there in November with hardly any food supplies and is open... More

Beautiful, absolutely stunning location. White sand turning all beaches to a clear turquoise colour making it very inviting to swim. Whales in very close to beaches and in small bays. Lots of walking tracks if you're in to walking. Lots of driving tracks, take a 4wd if possible. We stayed in a big cabin at the caravan park with 4... More

We stayed at The Duke over Christmas 2012 and New Year 2013. The park was fully booked but the pitches are huge (some are a little uneven) but we could easily have got 2 camper trailers on our pitch if we'd needed to. Ablutions: okay, they' re dated and the doors are half height, but we're camping people and the... More
