“Exactly what a tropical holiday park should be; lush, tidy, helpful staff, excellent amenities.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

For our first stop on our first motor home trip we were impressed by this campground. Beautiful site, great (but freezing) pool, very clean BBQ and amenities. It was a perfect spot for our little kids too with heaps of grass to crawl around on and stay out of trouble.

If your happy to take a short drive from Port Douglas and not be right in town, this park is by far the best value for money we have seen on our travels. Personal lockable ensuites with brand new plumbing, huge kitchen with great clean cooking facilities, shady sites, beautiful near by roads & houses (great for a morning walk or bike ride) and friendly staff.
Thanks Glengarry, having some personal space in the bathroom was exactly what we needed after sharing bathrooms for the last few months!
My only con was that Sandflies are around sundown and sunrise so get your spray out!

We were really happy with our stay at this park. Really good facilities (although the tiled floors were a bit slippery in the heavy rain) and camp kitchen with SPOTLESS bbqs, gas cookers, fridges toasters kettles and laundry. We stayed in the wet season and unfortunately the wet tropics
Ives up to their reputation, so whilst the park was lovely and quiet we probably didn't see it at its best.
The pool was fantastic and the waterside a nice addition! Staff were friendly and busy doing lots of maintainence work when we were there.
It is 7km out of port Douglas which could pose an issue for some ppl, Especially if you have a van and don't really want to pack up to drive round but there is plenty to do at the park! this wasn't an issue for us as we only stayed one night.
The free wireless Internet was something we really appreciated, this isn't offered by a lot of places and is great, esp for tourists who are traveling around.

My wife and I stayed here in a camper. It lies off the main road 7 km from Port Douglas itself, just far enough off the road to avoid any traffic noise. The site is well maintained and the facilities spotless. We were there in the rainy season and they sprayed regularly, which kept the bugs under control. The best things about the site are the swimming pool (which became a social centre as evening arrived) and the shade trees. I know of no other campsite with so many tall trees, giving real protection from the sun.

Probably the best Caravan park we have been in Australia.
Due to the Staff who was caring a lot about they guest needs, such as the barbeque area cleaning (spottless) and the way they plant the trip in the way that suits as better!
Thank you

Located off the highway, 7 km fromPort Douglas close enough but still quiet. all sites are pretty close to amenities block and the pool. The girl at the office - Delphine - was extremely helpful, it was a nice change from some other parks we've been to. They are with BIG4 so you get your welcome pack with all the maps and we were shown and given every piece of info we needed. Kitchen and showers are clean. Cape tribulation trip will take 1.5 hr one way. powered sites looked quite shady, though each site could do with a little more room

We stayed for 2 nights in a powered site (own campervan) and were so impressed with the atmosphere of the park. Everyone was super friendly and the pool is fantastic.
It's also very clean - camp kitchen, showers, toilets. Although we arrived late, the staff accommodated us and even guided me as I backed in the van. Can't wait to visit again.

Explore the Markets, the many and varied shops or have a coffee in one of Port's cosmopolitan Cafes, explore our natural attractions, take a trip to the Reef or self drive to Daintree National Park. A must see is Mossman Gorge with it's gorgeous 2.8Km walk around the national park, through some of the most spectacular rainforest (this is the start of the Daintree Rainforest). There is also the option of day trips to places such as Kuranda via the Train and Skyrail, the Atherton Tablelands, Cape Tribulation or even Cooktown.

Surrounded by natural wonders, Port Douglas offers a relaxing holiday destination with its spotless beaches and sparkling freshwater creeks. It is impossible to see and enjoy all that this area has to offer in a day. Our guests so often book in for 2 nights and end up staying for quite a few more just so they can experience all that the area has to offer. Experience all BIG4 Glengarry Holiday Park, Port Douglas and surrounds have to offer while enjoying the gorgeous weather of the tropics. We all need time out now and again whatever the weather, so discover the breathtaking northern tropics of Australia in our "GREEN SEASON" months at Port Douglas (December to March). The "GREEN SEASON" is often dramatic, wildly beautiful and eagerly awaited by our tropical rainforests. Without our annual rainfall, there would be no rainforest and, as many visitors discover, our 'Liquid Sunshine' doesn't usually interfere with diving, snorkeling or touring. The climate is seductive. Balmy days dissolve into tropical evenings. The tropics are a feast for the senses whether we have summer showers or warm sunshine during Winter. If all this is not enough, only 40 minutes drive to the south is Cairns with its shops, movie theatres, restaurants and beautiful Esplanade lagoon. ... more   less
