We (2A and 1C) travelled to the Tablelands from Townsville for a short getaway. The Woodlands park was most beautiful, stunning grounds. The pool excellent and there is a beautiful outdoor barbeque entertainment area where you dine al fresco and get to meet other residents of the park. It is a great place to base yourself as most places to visit are a short 10-15 minute drive from here. We stayed in both the Eco-Lodge and an Eco Cottage. The lodge definitely gets 5 stars as it has 3 bedrooms, self contained and has a separate lounge with FOXTEL. There is also a small balcony with table and chairs where you can dine if you choose. We did also stay in the eco cottage. A bit small and not recommended if you have a teenage child with you. They like their privacy and this cottage is open plan with small kitchen and beds all in one area. It was cosy though.
Park staff were simply the best. They were always friendly, would have a chat and they had excellent knowledge of the area and tourist attractions. Definitely worth a visit and gets 5 STARS from me.

Room Tip: Eco Lodge - definitely the best. Roomy, quiet and very clean.

We stayed in a two bedroom superior family cottage for 4 nights. It actually has room for 6 people to sleep, so the two of us had plenty of room. As the website stated, the cottage was lovingly restored. You could see it was an older cabin, but they put in a nice new bathroom (with a big shower) and aircon in the main living area. The two bedrooms both have fans, which means that to get a nice sleeping temperature in both rooms you have to put the aircon on full blast and use the fans to cool down the bedrooms. When we were in Atherton the temperatures were very high, 37-40 degrees, but late at night and early morning it cooled down nicely. The beds are very good, good sheets and mattresses. The verandah of our cottage (#6) was very big and shady. There is no dishwasher but that is not a big issue. The grounds of the park are very well maintained and beautifully landscaped. There is a nice swimmingpool and a well equipped camp kitchen. It is an excellent location to visit the beautiful tablelands, we went to Lake Eacham, Mount Hypipamee, and we did the Peterson Creek walk in nearby Yungaburra, where we saw two platypus! So, a good place to stay when visiting the beautiful Tablelands, and I would definitely stay at this Big4 again.

Thank you for your kind comments and feedback. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us in the Cottage. We are so close to many of the attractions here on the Tablelands and many of our guests do make this their base whilst touring. It was very unusual for Atherton to have such high temperatures, 37 degrees and some days even higher. Thankfully it has cooled down again and we are back to the temperatures and weather we are used to. Thank you and we look forward to having you stay with us again.

Very friendly staff at the reception. The cabins are very good equipped and very clean. I spend one night on it and I would come back.Its very quiet and wonderful located. You sit very relaxed and of course peaceful on the patio. It's just around 3Km from "Downtown" away and easy to find from the circle or "round about" at the Post Office. The price is very moderate in comparison to the Outback (135 AUD).....they even have wine glassesin the kitchen and for those are interested a 32inch flat screen :-)

We've just enjoyed another relaxing stay on the Tablelands and of course returned to Woodlands Big 4 as the park is set amongst a mini rainforest where tropical plants are lush and the birds are plentiful. The atmosphere of the park is relaxing and the staff are very obliging. It is also central to one of the most picturesque places in Australia. It has easy access for our caravan and the sites are surrounded by beautiful gardens. We return every year to enjoy the weather and the beautiful surroundings and am already planning my next visit.

We recently stayed in one of the villas here and loved everything about the park. The management were so friendly and extremely helpful. The cabin was spotlessly clean and just as shown on the website. The kids playground and pool were a huge hit after a long day of travel and my son didn't want to leave. Looking forward to visiting the tablelands again soon and cannot wait to stay here again.

We stayed in an Eco Cabin. Obviously very new as everything was pristine. Having said that, everything I saw at this park was in very good condition, well-maintained. Only stayed one night as we were passing through, but would love to stay again, probably for longer. Eco cabins are ideally suited to smaller families/very young children as the room isn't very large. We were fine with that though as we mostly needed it to sleep in, not to lounge about all day. Too much sightseeing in the surrounding areas to spend time indoors! Beds were very comfortable and the staff very amicable at check in. No trouble to make up the sofa bed for us also as a late request. More tropical plants distributed throughout the park wouldn't go astray.

Room Tip: Our cabin seemed very new, everything inside was in pristine condition. The quietest fan and air co...

Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in one of eco cabins, which were installed in September of 2012. They are proving to be very popular. As you mentioned, these eco cabins are designed for a couple or a smaller family --- but we do now have our very large 3 bedroom solar powered eco family Lodge --- so perhaps next time you stay, you might like to try it. We look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed here three years ago in a motor home and so we had a good feeling that the place would be just as beautiful and well looked after and indeed when we arrived it all looked just as good as we remembered. This time however we stayed in a family sized cabin and although it was very clean and tidy it did not suit us at all because the cabin seemed very dark and oppressive because of the lack of large windows anywhere and the very close proximity of trees and shrubbery to the windows and decking making a view of the very nicely maintained grounds virtually impossible from anywhere in the cabin including the decking. The cabin itself was very clean and tidy and contained everything we needed with very adequate TV coverage and free unlimited WiFi. We had a very pleasant and efficient reception service from someone who obviously cared a great deal about the place.
