Average bush camp, although has modern facilities & very well kept. At this price, $35 for a one night stay, (plus $26 per person for a look at the caves,seen one cave seen `em all), is WAY too expensive. For the well heeled traveller who does not have budget constraints I would go for it, having said that you need to be easily pleased.

We stayed in one of the cabins at the Capricorn Caves for just one night, but could have stayed there longer. Perfectly well kept cabins in a beautiful caravan park with lots of wildlife, that is still wild... (and not too touristy).
And of course we visited the caves which was after all the rain in February and March 2011 a very special experience with lots of bats and a perfect guide.

The Capricorn Caves was a great experience. I stayed in one of the cabins and it was super clean, modern and all that we needed. And so quiet, kangaroes, stars, nature, a real eco experience. And the tour was fabulous, very informative and well worth it. I was lucky to experience a great night of Opera in the Caves and that was amazing. Fabulous voices, sound, organization. Totally recommend to all those traveling thru the Rockhampton area. The peace after a busy travel schedule was really appreciated.

We stayed at budget hotels during a 5 week holiday, and this was the best lodge we stayed at.
The rooms are compact, yet extremely clean and well organized. The beds are from the 2000 Sydney Olympics (that's right, you sleep on beds Olympians have) and are very comfortable. The bathroom facilities are the cleanest I've ever seen, hotels included. They also have a common room that serves as a great place to sit around and watch tv. The owners of the lodges are also very friendly and take great pride in their property. While you're here, don't forget to check out the Caves themselves.
All in all, why bother staying in Rockhampton? Take the extra 5 minute drive out to this area and stay in this gem ;)
