We have been going to cape hillsborough for 10 years! We find the new management enthusiastic and keen to make our stay fun and comfortable. I love the 9.30 pm quiet time rule.
New management doing a fantastic job!

Our favorourite destination made so by the wonderful mgmt and staff that go out of their way to make yr stay memorable. Collected at airport, taken shopping before staying 3 weeks and returned back to airport with a scenic drive along the coastal route. Always a friendly chat at the cafe with nothing too much trouble. I agree with Mark J, new owners with new ideas trying to update facility after steady decline due to past owners, approaching retirement who were also special people. This is truly a piece of paradise and the new mgmt want to ensure the next generation of converts can enjoy it as we and many others want to in the future. I have nothing but admiration for the new owners and their vision for the resort and hope to continue staying there for many years to come with my wife avoiding the Melbourne cold.Our now grown up children share the same love for this beautiful national park and resort. Booking another 3 weeks soon and cannot wait

I have read with interest the comments made by people who stayed at Cape Hillsborough over the Easter break March 2013. I find it very disturbing that people can be so self-centred as to slander others to make a point. My husband and I along with our 3 grandchildren have been holidaying there for about 8 years, over which time we have always paid for our grandchildren to stay with us and fully expected to do so.
As for day visitors coming to the park and using the facilities, such as the pool, toilets, showers etc; why should they do it for free when we all have to pay to be there? There is a shower, toilets, Barbeques, tables & chairs in the park outside for day visitors to use all free.
I must admit I felt $8.00 was a bit steep for adults to visit I think $5.00 is sufficient but hopefully that may be revised. Some other parks have a fee and charge up to $10 a head, one should look at this when deciding to shift camp.
I was there at Easter and I did not complain to Management but I was not happy to be kept awake until 1.30am with campers sitting outside and getting quite loud as the alcohol took over, I was pleased to see management put a stop to it. I felt sorry for those campers with small children, and there were a lot of them. Campers can still play cards we do, but you need to consider others and keep your noise down.
Another point made was no scooters allowed after dark, “Bravo” myself and several others have nearly been run down so many times it’s not funny, I don’t have a problem with kids having fun it’s great but no lights on them and racing is rather dangerous, after all they have all day to ride.
I can’t comment on the activities for children I have always considered that is my job as a responsible adult to take care of my own and arrange things to amuse them. Cape Hillsborough is a wonderful place to take the family and my grandchildren have spent their childhood going there on holidays. There is so much for them to do, fishing, crabbing, building forts & cubbies in the bush, being at one with the wildlife just to name a few.
The facilities are cleaned every day and are much cleaner since people have been stopped coming from the beach and using them. As for the new owners I must say in their defence I have always found them to be reasonable and ready to listen and as far as rude I have never had the owners or any staff be rude to me ever.
Anyone who decides to not go to Cape Hillsborough will be doing themselves an injustice. The place is still the same maybe the new owners approach to things is a little different but that is their privilege. If anything has changed with the new owners it’s probably a change for the better. Cape Hillsborough Resort is still the same as it’s always been as far as I am concerned a great place to holiday.
We will, and I hope you too have many nice holidays in this friendly and family orientated park. Look forward to meeting you.

We have been staying at the Cape for the past eleven years; same time each year, under the past and current owners: The pst owners were beautiful, but they were getting on and the children didn't want the responsibilities of the park: The new owners are very keen and dedicated to making the park a place where people can come and totally relax, without the late night parties and noise associated with them.

This is a glorious place and it offers so much to those who want to enjoy the surrounds, ambience and the quietness so as to be able to relax. Parents have to be responsible for their children; just as the new owners are with theirs. This, along with trying to run a business for others to enjoy, thus encouraging guests to return as often as possible; just as we have.

Ben & Renae, keep doing what you're doing, looking forward to seeing you and your pleasant staff again very soon. This year, next and every year!
Happy Campers

Staff were friendly, has a good shop with fish and chip nights in the weekends. great location, beautiful beach only fault was that the cabins were very run down and not well cleaned, for the price charged. We found a pretzel in our bed- certainly not ours!

I can fully recommend Cape Hillsborough Nature Resort for the total tranquility of the beautiful secluded beach, the nice pool, BBQ areas, friendly staff and the wallabies and kangaroos playing on the beach early in the morning. Definitely a must if you are visiting Queensland.
