A friend and I only had one night in Bowen and wanted to be near the Cruising Yacht that allows you to jump on a boat for their twlight sailing races. And we couldn't have been any closer - we were just across the road! Which meant we were also on the water and only one block from Herbert St,... More

After checking into the park with our 8.5 mtr van there was no space to park the car expect on another site. The grass needed mowing on some sites. Ok it was busy. I then use the microwave in the camp kitchen only to find that it was filthy with food splatters, the kitchen cupboards were covered in dust and... More

This site was friendly and easy going with good facilities and neat pitches. The camp kitchen and pool were well maintained and modern. The site is almost on the seafront, just a small road to cross and your there, and by the water there are more facilities, water play park, bbq's etc. supply by the local authototy . Recommended

We stayed at this small and tidy park for 1 night on our travels. We had a large shady site close to the very clean and tidy amenities. Was a nice and close drive to the town centre, and the esplanade across the road was great for people of all ages. The only downside would have to be the Mozzies... More

3 days of pure relaxation in deluxe cabin. Directly across from Marina excellent views & walks on waterfront. Cabin was large with great beds, added feature A/C and fans made them comfortable even in summer heat. Park Mng was excellent on Wed. night free sausage sizzle, was very helpful on tourist tips to Whitsunday Islands. Nothing was to much trouble... More

We stayed over the festive season and had a lovely time. Staff were friendly and helpful and the venue was good. Unfortunately the pool was so hot it didn't provide much relief from the heat until at least 6pm, but it was much appreciated anyway (some shade over the pool would be useful).

first of all, there was nothing actually wrong with the place. it just has no flair whatsoever. it is covered with signs stating rules (don´t do this, don´t do that...), and the owners seem to be security freaks: there is a fence for everything, and you need a key for everything. It is not actually cheap, but totally boring.

We stayed here for just one night after a quick decision to head north from Airlie Beach and we were not disappointed, as Bowen is a terrific little town with some interesting history. We chose Harbour Lights because of its close proximity to the town centre as we were in town the day the AFL grand final was being played... More
