BIG4 Cairns Crystal Cascades Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 10, 2014

During our trip Sydney - Cairns we stopped at several BIG4 parks and must say that they all are head and shoulders above others. But Crystal Cascades was surely the best of all BIG4's we've seen. Hospitality was top level, the staff was most helpful. The location is fantastic, the park is beautifully designed and maintained. And maybe it was just our luck, but it was far from crowded (unlike 90% of other parks we stayed)! We can highly recommend renting a cabin there - it's spotless, well equipped and well kept, the towels and linen were impeccably fresh. And as mentioned in other reviews, this is a great base to explore the area - we can specifically recommend to spend a few days driving around the Atherton Tablelands (though some of the interesting drives might not be suitable for a larger RV: we've rented a 4WD for a couple of days and were glad we did). So, all thumbs up, Crystal Cascades, and thank you!

A lovely site in every respect. Spotless facilities and the tidiest and best site we visited in a month long trip up the east coast.
No road noise and just a short ride into Cairns. Free wifi too. Take the short drive to Crystal Coves, a lovely walk through the bush to the waterfalls.

Hi Ripcurlgirl12,

It's fantastic to hear that our park was the best site you visited on your roadtrip! And you're right about the Crystal Cascades waterfalls, they are indeed beautiful and the perfect place for a walk and a swim on a hot day. I hope that next time you're in Cairns we cxan look forward to welcoming you back!

After researching where to stay in Cairns ( November 2013) decided on Crystal Cascades. Have for many years stayed exclusively in a Big 4 venue both in Australia and Top10 in NZ.
Crystal Cascades is a wonderful quiet well maintained venue, only 15-20 minutes out of Cairns city. Redlynch Shopping centre just a few minutes down the road.
Reception staff especially Sophie, exceptionally helpful. Suggested when we went to the Atherton Tablelands to stop of Catch a Barra where I was the only angler there and caught 2 Barra. (Another item ticked off my "Bucket List".
Would recommend Crystal Cascades as a nice quiet venue for families.

The two of us stayed in a cabin for 6 nights which was lovely. The park is very well kept & was not a large, busy park (we were there in early November), so we enjoyed the peace & quiet. We were happy to be away from the hustle & bustle of Cairns & found it to be only a fifteen minute drive into the city. We found it very central for the attractions we visited such as Skyrail, Mossman & the reef. The staff were great & eager to help with any requests, even booking our reef trip for us. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Crystal Cascades Holiday park is located in a picturesque area in Cairns. A quiet location. Lot of birds around and good for walks. If you are a bird lover and enjoy the nature you will love the surroundings. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
