Booked here for 4 nights be stayed one extra as we felt very comfortable with the location and overall standard of the site. Staff were very friendly and helpful also. Plenty of info in reception so you know what's on offer locally, and every imaginable shop and eatery within a stones throw.

We are a family of five and are staying here for one week in a powered ensuite site. It's just lovely. The pool is clean and a great temperature ( the kids jumped straight in). The group amenities were very nice and clean and our ensuite is great including a nice big shower for my tall husband. The kids are... More

Not having the usual time to do some research I booked one night in a 2 bedroom family cabin for 3 adults through QANTAS. To quote my booking “1 x Family Cabin 2 Bedroom: Very well equipped & recently refurbished with 2 separate bedrooms, enjoy free DVD hire and free wireless internet”. Maybe I didn’t get what I paid for!... More

We just completed a road trip to Fraser Island, and planned a few stopovers to avoid 'highway eyes' and testy teenagers. Two great stops near Coffs Harbour and then with friends in Brisbane, to be let down by the experience here. The park at Hervey Bay looks quite inviting in the advertising pictures ... but the reality is when you... More

I stayed 2 nights in a Budget Cabin on a weekend. Check-in just after 11am was quick and easy and I was given a map of the Caravan Park and a special plastic key to unlock the security boom gate to enter the park. The grounds look well-maintained and very tidy. I would have liked to have a swim in... More

The staff in this caravan park were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The park is centrally located - a short drive to the beach, shops etc. We stayed in a powered site with ensuite amenities. The ensuite was small but adequate and was very clean. In spite of it being beside a main road we didn't hear much traffic noise.

The accommodation and facilities were better than expected considering the budget price. Considering it s located on a main street, it was very quiet. The location is some distance away from the esplanade and the pier.

Friendly staff, well appointed ensuite powered site. Ensuite was of a good standard, a nice walk into town, although as we found out not much open after 4pm, beach was very clean and well suited for families. Found a nice little fish and chip shop on the esplanade not overly expensive. Enjoyed our stay.

We thought we could check in late if we phoned ahead. After four attempts at 6.50pm (not really late and as advertised) we finally managed to get the after hours number.
