The meal we had on our 1 night at Tumbling Waters was a highlight of our 2 week trip. The mango cheesecake was to die for and we loved the soft shelled crab and barra. And it was so reasonably priced that I was totally shocked! $4 beers and $5 glasses of wine - wow! On top of that, absolutely lovely French staff.
The park itself is lovely, with a small area showing off some freshies, a table-tennis table, and other bonus features. All of this has led me to give it a high rating, but there were some wrinkles - the shared showers weren't too good, they watered the camping area regularly which meant our tent got wet, and in the morning we awoke to traffic noise from the nearby road, rather than to the birds.
