We stayed at this lovely park when paused for a work contract while travelling around Australia. It was ideal for a family stay with excellent facilities for families. Large sites easily accommodated our 23' off road van and light truck, amenities were clean and the gardens were beautifully maintained. Staff were always cheery, welcoming and happy to go above and... More

Our family stayed overnight on a powered slab site after a long day on the road (7 weeks into a 10 week trip) The check in service was rushed and average. We had asked for a drive through site which couldn't be accomodated, however after walking around the park there were 3 large vacant sites at the rear that we... More

I stay here for a month three times a year, great facilities and fantastic staff always willing to help and make arrivals and departures easy. Plenty to do if you have kids and the kitchens in the villas make life so easy! Definitely recommend it for business or pleasure alike. Will continue to stay here when I'm in Rockhampton

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this park in our caravan. This is a nice quiet and clean park. There are a large variety of options for staying in the park. There is a large number of cabins of all shapes and sizes. Also close to a major shopping centre. Just 5 mins by car. Also... More

The cabin was not what i expected for a budget cabin. It was large and very clean. There was a separate bedroom for kids. The beds were very comfortable and a nice hot proper shower (not those horrible water saving ones that you hardly get wet under). We will definitely stay again.

Friendly, clean, best park we saw in Rock Hampton. Would stay again. Great camp kitchen and nice hot showers after camping out. Management was helpful and gave some great advice on where to stay. Don't go past this one

For those travelling the Bruce Highway, this "stopover" in a clean, comfortable cabin is excellent. The well cared for gardens & helpful staff help create an oasis after a long days drive. For those wishing to explore the charms of Rockhampton, this is a great location to base yourself. To the north are "The Caves", to the east, the Yeppoon... More

We left early and once again we only had to leave key... More

Halfway between Townsville and the Gold Coast this looked like the place to stay. Park is located next to Bruce Highway in a good location and easy to find. Phoned ahead and booked site suitable for our motorhome. On arrival we found the allocated site occupied with a permanent resident. Reception was not very interested and told us to find... More

This was our second visit to this park. Upon check in we asked for a drive thru site where we could stay hitched. This park has no real drive thru sites as each site is offset. On our site we had to squeeze into a site next to a large bus, even though there was lots is empty sites available.... More
