“Escape the Hustle & Bustle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Not being huge fans of Cairns City's busyness we weren't really looking forward to our visit here, until we discovered this park. Nestled among scenic forested hills several kilometres out of town is one of the most delightful caravan parks in the country. From the friendly staff who help you park your van, to the wonderfully clean amenities, this park cannot be faulted. The grassed sites are well kept, nicely sized and the price per night is very reasonable, particularly compared to other Big 4 parks nearby.
I cannot speak highly enough of this place.

We normally take our caravan everywhere, however we decided to make a quick trip from Townsville to see our daughter and grandchildren in Cairns, as we had looked at Crystal Cascades last time in Cairns we decided to book a Cabin for our stay of 3 nights, on arrival all staff including Russel were very helpful, the cabin was well presented with everything you would need, perfect. Every afternoon we sat outside with a glass of wine watching the clouds come down over the mountains, really it was like being in a remote location, peaceful, quite, no traffic noise, just beautiful, would have liked to stay longer.

We have been on the road staying in caravan parks for 8 months now and Crystal Cascades has been one of the best parks we have stayed at. Immaculate grounds and facilities, friendly and helpful staff and the location was paradise. The mountains surrounding the park were just stunning and our boys loved spending time at the nearby creek - crystal clear and just perfect. Would highly recommend this park to others.

Oooh how I loved my stay at Crystal Cascades. It was our base while in Cairns and I can't praise it enough. We stopped in a chalet there (two adults and two teenagers) and I must say that was the most comfy beds we have ever slept in while on holiday. Seriously.
The staff were very helpful, our minor problem with the microwave was sorted, our request for extra bedding was too, they were very helpful in assisting me some phone calls I had to make. Offered weather forecasts when they knew we had booked a trip out on the Reef, took messages for me from tour operators..... very friendly and personal service.
While we were there we met others who had stopped there year after year, satisfied customers all and I could see why.
Apart from the lovely staff the place itself is truely charming.... surrounded by gorgeous rainforest, the grounds were well kept, clean and gardened in keeping with the forest. It made me appreciate the simpe act of getting up at sun-up (I'm not normally a morning person) and eating breakfast on the verander... a little piece of paradise.
It's not a huge park, I would recommend booking early because of that, and there's no entertainment facilities for young children - i.e. climbing frames etc. Personally speaking though I found this was a good thing. I love kids, I work with children, but it was nice while on holiday to have the peace and tranquility that a quieter park like this offers. If you have youngsters who need to let off steam then their sister park, another BIG4 (can't remember the name but it's on the outrskirts of Cairns) looks like it's designed with that in mind.
I also appreciated the fact that they had a sheet on the local wildlife - being interested and none-native that added to the experience.
Yep, if we can ever afford to make my way half-way across the world again I will be booking back there.
My only slight complaint was that I thought it could have done with being better signposted from the road - we drove past it and ended up asking someone at the local quarry! But hey that is just a small thing. I seriously can't fault the place itself or the staff. Oh and it would be nice if they had somewhere to hang clothes to dry inside the chalets, but again such a minor thing.
Very impressed, very happy. Thank you so much for the lovely stay.

Absolutely terrific (little) caravan park, beautiful outlook to the rain forrest / mountains. We stayed in one of the 2 story townhouses (brand new in August 2012) and it was beautiful. Couldn't ask for better.

Crystal Cascades is rated by us as the best caravan park in Australia - wonderful location, wonderful people and service, large sites, etc, etc. The list just goes on. The free barbecues and entertainment were held on a frequent basis. The bird life in the park is prolific, which should suit the twitchers.

Really enjoyed the position of park at the foot of the rain forest. Great friendly staff on arrival and help with putting van on site was a big plus; wish more parks would supply this service. We were able to organize tours and book these without having to leave the park. Nothing was too much trouble. We have no hesitation in recommending "Crystal Cascades" to fellow travellers and friends. Will certainly will stay there again if in the area. It was was also nice and quiet and with our GPS and local map provided from the office finding our way around was quite easy. Well done!
