BIG4 Cairns Crystal Cascades Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Found our way to this park after not finding any free camp spots available south of cairns. Roads are very busy up north with travellers this time of year due to the milder winter weather.
We were very lucky Russell was able to squeeze us in as several other parks (including this one) we tried were full. Russell was able to squeeze our very large camper trailer in on a lovely grassed (unpowered) spot they reserve for long term storage of caravans (thankfully only had a feet there at the time which left us lots of room to set up).
The park was chock a block full of grey nomads, never seen so many caravans lined in neat rows. Fellow guests were very friendly to us and our kids.
I need to mention again how friendly, cheerful and helpful the staff were. The facilities were very clean and modern, camp kitchen was great (though we only used it to wash up) having a stove, oven microwave fridge and two sinks for washing up.
We were right at the back of the park which made for a bit of a walk (only really a problem at night with the kids) to the toilet block (situated in the middle of the park) and the pool and playground (situated behind the reception area at the front of the park).
Only negative which also makes a positive is that the park is well off the beaten track about 20-25mins from center of cairns. But this meant that the park was very quite from traffic noise which was really lovely.
Overall a very pleasant stay. If your looking for a quiet spot out of the way to relax this is your park.

Fantastic spot, with the hills all around. The guidance to back our van in was exceptional, with just a few moves under the direction of the park owner. Perfect!!! The facilities are very clean, with flowers on the benches - a really nice touch. The position is great - only 15 minutes from town, and close to the Skyrail and Freshwater Station. Shops only a few minutes away, too. One of those times when the time came to move on, we did it reluctantly, as it was such a lovely place.

A wonderfully situated park, nestled amongst the hills. It felt so peaceful and restful. Immaculately kept and nothing was too much trouble for the owners of the park. Beautiful bike or walking track along a delightful river. I would recommend a stay at this park to anybody. We'll done to the management ;)

This caravan park could not have done more to impress us. we were travelling with another couple from Perth and had to change our booking dates twice as they had car troubles. Despite being peak period, it was no problem. When we arrived we needed repairs to our van requiring a longer stay. Again no problem. Phil went so far as to do some welding to our van to get us back on the road despite being very busy. The atmosphere among the other travellers was warm and they were a happy lot even with the unseasonal rain. Their help with booking tours made it very easy. This is an excellent family business and highly recommended.

We were really impressed with the service and hospitality that the owner, Philip and staff gave us upon our arrival at the Park. The park is very well maintained and the facilities are very clean with that special touch of a flower arrangement in the amenities which is good to see. There is a lovely rainforest walk near the park which is an added bonus and I would highly recommend this park to anyone.

Always a looked 'forward to' park when we travel north each year. This park is one of the very best for regular caravaners. Owners and staff, the location in a beautiful quiet valley and the proximity of local shops and city are good reasons to spend time in this park.

Just a lovely park nestled in the hills, 15 minutes from Cairns. Close to Crystal Cascades 5 kilometres up the road. Around the corner there are 3 trees, the only ones in Australia. They are cannon ball trees.
