“Loved it!”
Reviewed May 28, 2009

This place is gorgeous. Beautiful gardens, really nice cabins, pool and play area are great, but my fav was the jumping pillow!! You have to have a go if you have the pleasure of staying in this great place.
My mum and i stayed in a deluxe cabin, as we were in qld to visit my sister. The cabin was great in size, perfect for the two of us. Big shower, really comfy beds, foxtel and even tim tams in the fridge! I did all of my booking on line. All the staff were fab in responding to my many emails. I had a light globe die one night, by the time i had walked back from reception, the maintence man was waiting for me. Great service, and always with smile.
One of the things i loved most....It lived up to the great photos on their web site, if not better!!

Fantastic resort, amenities and facilities way above average. Stayed in a luxury condo which we could not fault. Staff was always accomodating and booked tours for us with no problems. The pool is the highlight, kids had a ball and spent hours swimming and sliding. Easy access to Airlie Beach as bus stop is at the resort entrance and took 12 minutes, also shopping centre walking distance for groceries. Look forward to returning one day - soon we hope!

We found this holiday park by chance on the internet and it was even better than we expected it to be. The whole park is so well looked after, the rooms (we had a studio for 2 people) are very clean and spacious and have a veranda on which you can sit and enjoy your BBQ at night. We also loved the pool where you can swim till rather late at night and enjoy a relaxing whirlpool massage while looking at the stars. This is a great place to relax and recover – for families as well as for groups or couples. It is a bit out of town, but with a car it's no problem and all the cruising companies have a pick-up service. Supermarkets are right around the corner.

Our group (4 adults) stayed in a 2 bed villa for 4 nights. The villa was of a high standard and very clean. There is a large lounge/kitchen/eating area. The kitchen contains everything you'll need. There was one bedroom with a double bed and one room with a bunkbed but with a double on bottom bunk. Bathroom contained a shower and sink. Towels were provided.

Park was great with a nice swimming pool (although more for kids then adult swimming), crazy golf, playground and jumping pillow. Everything was clean and looked after. Reception staff were very helpful and you can book tours from there.

Transport into Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour was very good. We got free transfers with our tours and had a car for anything else (we didn't really need the car at all - wouldn't get one again). There's a supermarket/shopping centre 10min walk from the park.

A great stay that I would recommend.

  • Liked — Cabins and reception staff.

We wish we had read the reviews about the resort prior to booking, as when we arrived we soon learnt just how far out of town it is. Okay when you have a car, but when you don't and you have little ones, it can be a handful to get in and out of town via taxis and buses (although must add that the buses are easy to catch, but with prams etc can be a problem). The resort itself has beautiful gardens that are being maintained throughout the day (the sound of a huge tractor driving around all day can get to you as it drives around the gardeners) and the facilities for the kids are fantastic. We stayed for 7 nights, which was a little long as we were starting to get itchy feet. So I would recommend staying for a shorter period (even more so if you don't have transport at hand). If you are a camper, you will love the resort as we have never seen such facilities offered at a camping ground ie. kitchen with sink and access to hot water, large plasma in the common area, microwave etc. Overall, we loved staying there. We stayed in a luxury cabin and found it extremely clean. Would we return again - yes, but with a car.

My family (children aged 4 & 6) only stayed one night since we were passing through, but it was a highlight of our trip. We stayed in a luxury cabin (which seemed quite new) but there is also provision for campers and caravans.

The property itself is fair distance outside of Airlie Beach, but is located near a large shopping centre with supermarket.

The property is beautifully maintained -- the reception area is like a luxury hotel and the grounds are very neat. A staff member told me that the place "used to be a dive", but the owners have improved it year-by-year to its current beautiful state. There is also room for future expansion.

The highlight of the property is the swimming pool, which is roomy enough for lots of people. It features small water features for toddlers, spa steps for adults and two water slides for the whole family. Our children were a little fearful of the slides at first, but after a while were having a great time!

There is also a mini-golf course that is fun for the kids, a jumping cusion (like a single, huge jumping castle) and a playground. There are also some grassed areas that can be used for ball games.

The room was amazingly clean and featured a queen bed plus double bunk and a trundle bed -- enough for a sizeable family! The room had a ceiling fan, a very effective air-conditioner, fridge, kitchen facilities and wall-mounted flat-panel television. Each cabin has its own driveway for parking a car.

If you're passing through Airlie Beach (eg on the way to the Whitsunday Islands), I'd highly recommend a stay at BIG4 Whitsunday Adventure.

We hired a camper van and headed up to Airlie four adults, two teenagers and three kids under 5. We arrived at night so the next morning everyone excited we set out to explore.
There is a great pool with slides, mini golf and a super park with the jumping pillow. The kids were always occupied. There is also plenty for teenagers to do. In the evening about 6pm they set up an outside cinema with a family movie. the only down side was no seats and they don't let you bring them out of the pool area. But still a great way to end the evening with young children.
There is family bathrooms which we found really useful, they were also kept really clean and tidy,also a laundry room which was great.
Just outside the site is the bus stop so that was really good for going into the town. A five minute walk takes you to a really large shopping area for any thing you could need. Overall a great site for alll the family.
