Truly an amazing holiday destination.perfect setting among a tropical rainforest,our site backed onto a small creek,was well grassed and close to an amenities block.The whole layout and quality of service was all we could ever wish for after a long day on the road from the gulf.

We (Mum & Dad & two teenage daughters) stayed in one of the chalets at Woodlands in Atherton, at the recommendation of the Cairns Tourist Information. We would never have found this place by ourselves, had booked for one night, but stayed an extra night (and would have liked to stay longer had our schedule permitted). Our stay was most relaxing and nice.
We had a small but super-clean chalet. Everything we needed was there. The pool was clean and nicely laid out, there was a barbecue area, farm-eggs to buy from the office. There is a lot of privacy somehow on the terrain, it is not noisy. The area is green. Staff were pleasant and helpful. A place where you feel welcome. Wifi.
The area may seem plain but is actually very beautiful. Mum did her jog in an early morning fog, with shreds of cloud hanging between king ferns and banana trees, running literally through a rainbow in the damp fields, with cows staring at her, cockatoos screeching ahead, along the old steamtrain-track.
And, spectacularly: we saw the platypus at the platypus viewing area, for two nights in a row. Go there around 6 pm and wait quietly. There's also a sad and lethargic turtle that just hangs in the water, but the tiny (baby?) platypus will emerge and submerge, swimming to and fro in the water below the waterfall. The second night we also saw a water monitor (we believe).

This park deserves all the great reviews it has received. It ticks all the boxes - from the initial check in, right through to leaving. After travelling Australia for 12 months - I have seen my share of parks & this has to be one of the best...Well done!!

We had a powered van site and loved the peace and tranquillity of the location. The amenities were beautiful and extremely well maintained. It is a beautiful place to stay and relax. We will definitely be back again.

This was our first visit to Atherton. We stayed in a two bedroom self contained cabin at Woodlands park with a lovely private verandah. The cabin was very clean and comfortable with the added bonus of Foxtel. The staff are really nice and the gardens are beautiful. We highly recommend Woodlands cabins.

I found this place after a disaster check in at the Atherton Holiday park.
The lady on the desk was very friendly and helpful and after telling her my horror story (which left me out of pocket) she gave me a discount. I then parked my campervan and it was my first night in it with not instructions how to use half of the stuff - a nice man who I think was the owner helped me sort out my power. Thankyou!
The facilities were very clean and tidy with all the basics that you need.
It was so good here I looked for big4 camping grounds to go to at my other destinations.
