Nice park with friendly and helpful staff. Conveniently located if you have a car. The park has good facilities. The kids enjoyed the pool. We would stay again however the roads are very small which makes it difficult to get onto some sites.

We came to Hervey Bay with relatives from Austria to do a Fraser Island Tour and were very happy with the very comfortable accommodation. The villa was clean and had all the mod cons. Bookings for whale watching and Fraser Island tour can be booked at the reception.

It was a very clean studio style motel room with a small kitchenette. Not a very nice outlook...road, road and road. However, it didn't have everything you needed for a few days stay. The worst iron and ironing board in existence, a wobbly glass table that you couldn't really get 4 chairs around or use as a makeshift ironing board... More

We booked a cabin here for the long weekend and apparently our credit card details were incorrect, even though I called to confirm the details with the park twice?

We decided to stay here for four nights while we looked for a property. The park reception was very friendly and helpful and we decided to have a site with ensuite attached. Each ensuite block individually serves six sites. They are a little more expensive but worth it. On inspection there is a large amenity block and it was exceptionally... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The grass pitches are flat and wide and mostly have power available. The toilet and shower facilities were kept very clean and tidy, probably the best I have ever encountered. Great location in centre everything.

We stayed just for a few days and whilst we were busy out and about and didn't spend a lot of time using the facilities. Our villa was neat and tidy and had everything we needed for our stay. We did have a swim in the pool which the kids enjoyed great for kids big and small!
