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).

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay for a week at Harbour Lights Caravan Park. Amenities were very clean, The cabin was very comfortable. Close to town and eating places. Also the staff couldn't do enough to make us welcome. We will return next year....Thank You.

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

We had a week at Harbour Lights Caravan Park, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The cabins were very clean and modern. The bed and pillows were the best, so comfortable. We had such good sleeps there. We loved the location, it was down near the harbour which was so nice. Close to the Yacht club were we had... More

Had a very quiet nights stopover at the pleasant site. As I said in my title it is a bit out of the way but a walk along the harbour wall at sunset easily made up for that. We were a little disappointed to find the pool was out of action when we first arrived but they worked quickly to... More

We stayed for a night in a new cabin over looking the so called harbour. The cabin was great, modern, clean and airy. The staff seemed friendly. Indeed this seemed like any typical caravan park and we had no problems staying there. One thing to be aware of though, is the location. While close to the main street, Bowen is... More

If you are passing through Bowen and need a powered site for a night, this is really the best option, close to town(2 min walk). Use the drive through site and you don't even have to disconnect. Amenities are just fine. Bowen is a sleepy little town so I probably wouldn't stay for too long but that might be what... More

I spent a night in a bathroom-less cabin for $70. It was a great spot to stop off after Day 1 of an epic road trip to Cairns. The communal bathrooms were clean and had decent showers. The room was basic but comfortable. The waterfront area opposite the park was the perfect spot to go for a run before hitting... More
