“A brilliant accommodation even for backpacking.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2010

Great caravan park even without a car. There were 3 of us, and we had a poolside cabin, and we had enough room.
A really quiet place, with only 10-15 minutes to town by bus.
A half hour if you decide to walk. Very friendly staff, gave us good advice and was a great example of aussie hospitality.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2010

It was a very comfy villa we stayed at (opposite the pool). The pool was nice although rather small, but kids still managed to find it fascinating. Very child friendly. Nice picnic tables outside every villa, pretty much everything you need.
There's also a really yum take away store around the corner, although it's quite a hike to the shops and the buses going into the city can present a bit of a problem. Free DVD hire with a deposit of $20 that you get back.
My only problem with it was the excruciatingly noisy air conditioning (I couldn't hear myself think!), and the fact that all the screen windows were broken at the sides so pretty much anybody could just jump through your window if they wanted to - pretty unsafe in that respect. The front two doors I could have opened within two minutes if not less with minimum noise probably without a key so I didn't enjoy that.
Otherwise though, if you're going in a large group, it shouldn't be a problem.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2007

Stayed here in july after phoning the park direct for a booking. All very easy to arrange. The park is a good distance away (car needed) from cairns town centre but if you have a car it would be brillliant, as we did not we had to walk twenty mins to the nearest supermarket and then back in the hot sun with heavy bags, not fun. We stayed in one of the little cabins which looked brand new. It was well equipped with a comfy bed, wardrobe, sofa, table, TV, and full kitchen. It was ina quiet location and was excellent value for money. Laundry facilites were excellent but the communal bathrooms need an update (whihc i think they were in the process of when we visited. An all round good cheap place to stay, but only if you have your own transport.

  • Liked — that everything was new and high quality
  • Disliked — location
