This Discovery Caravan Park exceeded our expectations. We booked a Superior Villa and and Economy Cabin and both suited our needs perfectly. The Superior Villa was clean, well kept and a good size. The water pressure in the shower was great, the bed was comfy, the noise from out side was minimal. Our adult children booked an Economy Cabin ,... More

This park is made so welcoming because of the efforts of the Managers Ian and Jen, really wish though that they had the Internet as promised, this is the second Discovery park we have stayed in that promised teh Internet yet did not deliver.Maybe Discovery should not advertise what they dont have.

We stayed for a long weekend in a cabin. Clean, tidy, quiet, had every thing we needed in the cabin (oven,fridge,mircowave,cultery etc) and close to everything we needed(stores,tourist activities). Staff were very pleasant and helpful.

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.

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”.

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 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.
