Travel plans changed and we ended up here quite by accident. Powered site - plenty of space but very noisy with both road noise (trucks) and the campsite internal access road. Good camp kitchen (sink, benches, fridge, gas stove tops and bbq). Clean amenities block.

Booked powered caravan site for quick overnight stay and found the facilities clean and staff friendly. Large sites made it easy to position 24ft van and some privacy barriers between the next site which was nice. Pool was appreciated- Everything we needed!

Stayed in cabin overnight which was spacious, clean and well equipped, including full size fridge. Cabin was well presented and clean with under Cover car accommodation provided. Easy walking distance to township and only issue was imposition of 10% surcharge for one night accommodation. Considered unfair and aside from the levy pricing was excessive in comparison to Bundaberg,Rockhampton and Emerald.

It's very hard to travel long distances with the dogs. The Big Rig is fog friendly and is right near a big park that is great for 'wallows'. The dogs must sleep out, which is easy as the cabins have an undercover area to park with enough room for the dogs. The cabins were clean, cool and the hot water... More

I would recommend this park and actually I have. We stayed here for 12 months and it felt like one big family. The management was very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble for them. I hope other people get to enjoy this atmosphere.

After camping for a week on outback dirt, we loved the grass camp sites. Facilities very good, camp kitchen excellent. Sites a bit close to the road and could do with some extra fencing to help feel more secure and shielding from road and neighbourhood noise.

We were just passing through. They facilitated a late arrival and the place had everything we needed to prepare for the next days travel. Pool and BBQ were in good condition. The accomodation was fine, a little old and dated but clean enough. We had no problems here; just don't expect the Taj Mahal

We were pleasantly surprised with the Big Rig tourist park. We booked a deluxe cabin, and found the cabin to be well appointed, roomier than most we have stayed in other places and very clean. The park is very convenient and the managers friendly and helpful. Great value!
