“In need of serious maintenance!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Contrary to the Qld Caravan Parks 2013 Directory, there are no powered van sites without an ensuite, so the cost to all is $45 per night, regardless of whether you have your own shower etc. Also, the Directory states the park is a "tropical oasis in the heart of Townsville". Whilst the location is terrific, and there are lots of palm trees, there is unswept concrete and bitumen with pot holes everywhere. Adding to this, at the side of each site you face a large Besser brick double ensuite wall. There are ONLY garden beds between each site and very few others. The grass ones are mostly dry and in need of a cut, there are tan bark garden beds and a few in our lane were all left with a dirt pile roughly raked with rubble and a little rubbish, for some period of over two weeks, after pipe repairs! This tourist park is a CONCRETE JUNGLE. Without much of a look around, I noticed a badly rotting door in the pool area, a badly rusting door frame in our ensuite, and a cabin with a door in need of painting with a badly damaged kitchen bench. I think this park has been an "Oasis" but is now neglected. You do not see staff regularly tidying up outside.
