After a long drive from Mackay it was lovely to meet the young receptionist who smiled as she booked us into an ensuite site. Such a friendly professional person is appreciated when you're pretty tired. Unfortunately we could only stay one night especially as the ensuite was modern, squeaky clean and spacious.

Four nights in Tannum Sands caravan park was not enough for this pretty place. Walks or bikeriding from the park to the beach or the surf club for lunch is a delight . The beach is patrolled and safe for little kids. Amenities are clean and well maintained with a good camp kitchen and entertainment several nights a week as...

Our standard cabin was excellent, very comfortable, practical, well laid out, had everything that we needed. Fabulous location, we loved walking along Millenium Esplanade especially late in the afternoon, (just take the lotion for the Midge/sandflies).

Great park - friendly staff plus entertainment nights by the owners. Singalongs, rock and roll nights, sausage sizzles, soup etc. What more could a traveller want for. A park and experience not to be missed.

Park Managers like to entertain visitors. Singalongs with sausage sizzle was enjoyable but be protected from the mosquitoes at dusk. A very busy park with numerous caravaners coming and going. Good amenities. A happy stop over between Rockhampton and Bundaberg .

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A quiet bushland setting with direct access to the golden sands of Tannum Beach and within walking distance of the picturesque seaside communities of Tannum Sands and Boyne Island is where you'll find Discovery Parks - Tannum Sands. Just 25km's south of Glandstone, Tannum Sands is tucked away from the hustle and bustle providing a sanctuary to escape the everyday and embrace a relaxed coastal lifestyle centred on the outdoors and marine pursuits. Our caravan park sits right on the innovative and eco-friendly Millennium Esplanade, an ideal place for picnics, barbeques and of course swimming. The waters at Tannum Beach are patrolled by lifesavers during Spring and Summer, providing a safe way to cool off and with only a small variation in water temperature during the year, you can take a dip virtually all year round. There's plenty to see and do at Tannum Sand and Boyne Island with cafes and shopping facilities plus a boat ramp, skate park and golf course to keep the whole family entertained. At the caravan park you'll find a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets and facilities including a resort style swimming pool, tennis court, BBQ's, camp kitchens and more . Come and take a break with Discovery Parks - Tannum Sands. ... more   less
