“Very Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This was a lovely, relaxed campsite, with very friendly and welcoming staff who couldn't do enough to help (free firewood, free local jam!). The location is ideal for exploring the Atherton Tablelands and the waterfall trail (the campsite is right next to Malanda Falls). And yes, if you're there at the right time you can help feed the calves (as my son duly did).

We are a family traveling around Australia and stumbled upon this treasure and stayed a week. Had we not already made plans further afield we would have loved to stayed longer.
Beautiful lawns to park your van, waterfall just behind, baby calfs for my little guy to feed, abundant wildlife and campfires allowed, this place is idyllic.
Barry and Kylie were lovely and very helpful. We even got a little jar of jam on arrival.
Wish we found this spot earlier.

We are travelling around Australia and have stayed in so many places over the past 6 months, this would rate as one of the best. Unbeatable value, perfect location and climate, and lovely hosts that go out of their way to help you. Feed newborn calves, swim in the falls and spot tree kangaroos around the park. I only wish we had found it sooner. Can't recommend highly enough.

After staying at sites of varying quality and price around the area we accidentally stumbled across this caravan park. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The park itself is really nice with a couple of small calfs that the kids can help feed twice a day plus a selection of ducks, chickens and guinea fowl. On the second day we were lucky enough to see a tree kangaroo although the platypus has proven elusive up to now.

Stayed for two nights in unpowered camping (campervan). Amenities are tidy, park is very spacious and small campfires are allowed. At rear of park there are steps leading directly to Malanda Falls and two rainforest walks.

Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. Eg. Daily animal feeding, under the stars movie night and games.
