“Fantastic family park!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We have just spent a wonderful weekend at the Gold Coast Holiday Park with our two sons (10yrs and 6yrs) and another family of 3.

When checking in, the bookings clerk ensured we were next to each other in an ensuite site. We both had camper trailers and were escorted to our site, they even helped my husband park the camper trailer thus eliminating the inevitable argument between us!!

The ensuite was modern and clean, perfect for us! My only disappointment was lack of shade, I imagine in summer those sites will get really hot. However there are ample shady areas by the creek if you want to forgo the ensuite!

The facilities are fantastic, BMX track which the boys loved, swimming pool with slide which is right next to the cafe and BBQ area so you can have cocktails while you watch the kids! The jumping pillow was a hit too!!

The cafe is staffed by the friendliest and most accommodating crew. The food is plentiful and delicious, not one of us had any complaints and we pretty much covered the whole menu between us! The fact that they make great cocktails and have an extensive selection was fantastic! Not even our local pub/surf club has a cocktail list like this one!

The traffic noise is noticeable, but after a huge day at the Wet n Wild none of us minded too much! The proximity to the theme parks more than makes up for this.

We will be back, in fact we are already planning our next trip! It truly was a relaxing fun filled weekend. So easy!

Room Tip: It is on the motorway so if you are worried about noise, request a site towards the back of the prop...

Loved our stay. Had a front ensuite site so had a bit of traffic noise. The facilities are clean and in great condition. We will return to this park again. The pool & cabana where something you would expect in a resort and we spent most evenings relaxing around the pool after a day at the theme parks

Being Big 4 members, and liking the location close to theme parks, we booked an ensuite site here for 9 days. We were towing a campervan from Sydney with a toddler, and left a day early to make the trip in two days, however found our bub to be very accommodating so we actually made the whole trip in one day. The staff here at the park were very helpful in rearranging a few bookings so that we could have our site for an extra night when we arrived a day early. We were escorted to our site and guided in to our spot. The site was great, concrete slab for annexe, driveway to park the car and a very clean and modern ensuite.
The pool was amazing. Loved the waterslide, water was nice and warm and the cabanas very relaxing to lie about in. The flame torches lit at night created a "high end resort" feel and the cafe overlooking the pool is reasonably priced (we only had snacks, we didnt have a meal there, but should have!).
There are activities for kids, like a bmx track, petting zoo and jumping pillow which is great if you can get the kids out of the pool! We had a look at these, but didnt use them as our son is a little young for this type of thing yet.
The park offered free pancakes for breakfast on Sunday morning, and free sausage sizzle for dinner on Tuesday night. Both were yum!!!
The location is great, really close to movie world, wet n wild and a short trip down the freeway to dreamworld. Because we were so close, we went to movie world an extra two times, just for the afternoon, just because we could. The only downfall we can think of for this park is also its location, being so close to the freeway, there is a bit of traffic noise overnight but it definitely would not stop us coming back.
Overall, this is a great park for kids with lots to do and is close to the theme parks. Highly recommended.

We rented a luxury villa here in October for me and my partner, our son and my parents. The villa was terrific - spacious, well-equipped (except no real oven, only a microwave), quite stylish, everything felt pretty new. There are well-established tropical gardens around the villas, which was nice. And the pool is lovely - resort style, much better than most holiday park pools, and has a licensed cafe. The location is perfect if you are doing "the worlds" (Movie World, Dream World, Wet'n'Wild Water World & Whitewater World) - they are 5 minutes away. Not near the beach, though. The only real downside is the proximity to the motorway, which means it is very noisy (traffic noise). Not so bad when in the villa, with the windows on that side closed. But camping it would be an issue. The villas aren't cheap, until you realise that to fit all of us in a hotel or motel would need two rooms - and then it seemed like a good deal. Plus you can prepare your own food - or there is plenty of takeaway up the road. There are also lots of kids activities - pedal bike things you can rent, a jumping pillow, a petting zoo. Though after the worlds we just relaxed really.

Room Tip: Luxury villa - choose one set back a bit from the road.

Dear Kristen1967

Thanks for such a great review! We love it when our guests enjoy our facilities and get a chance to relax.

Your comments on the motorway noise are noted. Its generally a result of a cross wind that we don't usually suffer from but when the wind is blowing the wrong way its a real pain.

We will be looking at trying to find a solution in the new year.... heres hoping.

Please come and see us again soon.
we would love to welcome you back to the Gold Coast !

We checked into this park ( myself and my son) to go to the theme parks. We stayed in a motel room. Very clean and had everything you would need. Loved the pool area, my son loved the water slide. Reception staff were nice and efficient. My son also love the go karts. Cafe was nice. Overall we both liked this place, we would stay here again...

We recently purchased a camper trailer and were eager to test it out, a quick call to the park and we were there within a few hours, no hassle booking in, upon arrival at reception it was obvious this was a very flash park, we were escorted to the camp grounds and given a choice on site, we stayed on the river walk section, the sites were perfect for a camper trailer, a kayak launch is within metres, the amenities were great and clean and showers hot, we have a new bub and were super impressed with a proper baby bathroom complete with bath, change table, toilet and basin not just a sink in the laundry like most parks, the pool and cafe omg we thought we were in a surfers paradise hotel, another bonus, fires and pets are allowed, we only live 10 minutes away but had such a great time we are going back in November with friends, 3 camper trailers woo hoo bring it on.

Hi MandBC

Great review - thanks ever so much for taking the time to write all these lovely things about us!!!

We have quite a few 'local guests' now who really maximise the good weather and get around the pool whenever the sun is shining and they feel the call of the kayak/pool/campfire/pets/kids to grab a quickie holiday.

Cant wait to see you again soon and thanks also for bringing your friends - we will do our best to live up to expectations :)

See you soon.

From booking, checkin to settling in - with my dog - the wonderful crew were so friendly, smiling n professional.
I have very happy memories of my 3 week stay n will definately recommend the park to others. Oh...it is walking distance to shops, takeaways n the pub!!
Many thanks guys you are a special crew.
