we were in a caravan and it was nice park for a night or two. has a lot of potential for showing its history off a little more. did the walk around the bunkers but it could have done with a few historical signs and interesting facts. hospitality good and amenities clean although a little dated and could lose the...

We pulled into this park after reading about it on the Internet and what a pleasant stay it was.Only for one night as we were on our way home,unfortunately. The owners were very welcoming and when we reached the caravan site we were given a brief history of the camp. Plenty to see and a campfire at night.The night we... More

Recently spent two nights in bunker accommodation at Possum Park. It certainly is different! There are a dozen undeveloped bunkers so it is easy to see how the place would have looked when it was an ammunition dump during WW2. There are approx. 5 developed bunkers as well as the usual caravan park, on site villas and converted rail carriages.... More

The park is an intriguing array of the past with old wartime munitions bunkers converted to underground accommodation and similarly with old troop rail carriages. There is a good number of caravan sites, many of which are drive through and the daily happy hour and camp-fire is a good opportunity to meet the neighbours. Highly recommended for a stop in...

This is a most unexpected place. We stayed here only for 1 night but plan to go back for longer. It is unique mainly because of its heritage but also because it is completely different to the usual caravan style parks you encounter. The staff are very friendly and even though they were repairing the water tank while we were... More

Visited with family and friends who had been here previously and it lived up to their comments about it. I feel it caters for all the different types of travelers either needing accommodation or wanting to camp or have caravans. We had a cabin which slept 2, and we were very comfortable and it had all we needed. Big grounds... More

My son, who is working in Miles, found this Park for us to stay in our van so we could spend some time with him. What a fantastic find! Once a WWII munitions storage facility, this park is as fascinating as it is peaceful. There is a lovely walk around the site where you can view the old bunkers, and... More

I went on a road trip with a mate from Adelaide to Townsville, and not knowing anything about Queensland's wild west, we just chose towns/locations to stay based on TripAdvisor reviews. Possum Park in Miles is an absolute winner. Julie is a wonderful host; she is incredibly obliging. The bunkers are great. The decor is a little daggy, but that's... More
