“Best showers on the east coast...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Great campsite. Great refurb. Bathrooms and showers are amazing :) right next to the beach and not too far away from shops in a car. Everything you need on the site. Pool, kithcen, out door cinema screen and bbqs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Stayed here for one night in June, arrived late and the management was well organised with us getting our key, the cabin we had was very new and all was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed at the end of a long drive. A few minutes drive to a larger shopping centre, also close to a mini mart and a few takeaways. The place was very clean and tidy, very close to the beach, well its on the beach really. OK the downside is that mackay area is booming with miners so the rate was quite expensive compared to other places ( 100 dollars dearer than the same style of place in cardwell) also the internet was an issue as I couldn't get it or find how? As I rely on this for various things , was a bit dissapointed, especially as the trend is to supply free WiFi to guest's. Overall I probably would stay here again if in Mackay only because of the location and new cabins, management just need to get the internet sorted. Cheers

Room Tip: All the new Cabins looked good

We have just spent a week at the refurbished Seawinds caravan park and look forward to revisiting this park. A major upgrade has probably made it the best kept secret in the Mackay area. Beachfront park with a 6 km beach to wander along, Good sites, new toilets and showers, bitumen roads and a great management team looking after your needs. Recommended.

Room Tip: Van sites near beach have a great view to the sea, can get a little windy but worth the stay.
