We stayed here overnight on the way up to cape york and on the way back. Great for kids. Amenities were clean. The bacon and egg rolls at the attached servo were the best ever. Wouldn't advise camping near the camp kitchen as there were a lot of backpackers.

This would be the worst site I have ever stayed at in 30 years. Facilities are old and worn, tiny camp kitchen, and pool which overlooks an old wall and service station, so they can all look at you while swimming. We got parked at the front directly behind 3 cool room compressors, so needless to say we didn't get...

Just stayed here for a night stopover in Townsville. A really nice park with a lovely pool, big children's play area and almost spotless toilet/shower block. The lady checking us in was very kind and helpful. They also offer various deals and money off in the shop/cafe and petrol station. I would highly recommend this for any families with children...

A very friendly well maintained caravan park giving easy access to the city and local shopping centres. The park is far enough from the road to alleviate traffic noise.The sites are a good size and easy to access. The whole park is secured by good fencing and has electronic opening gates for guests. The amenities are not locked so keys...

Stayed one night on way to Cairns. Kids had there bikes stolen stored between caravan and ensuite after midnight. Management did not seem surprised and seemed to be aware who the offenders were. Security questionable, 6 foot fence down the northern side of the park would help!

Hi "cazsnow73" Thanks for staying with us and apologies that you encountered an issue during your stay. Unfortunately the bikes were not locked and there was little that we could do apart from show empathy towards the unfortunate situation and give you the number of the police.

Nice park just off the highway, the park is well maintained with large powered sites that are easy to use. There is a service station just beside it where you can check in . Check in was quick and friendly. Bus stop for the town is just around the corner

This caravan park is probably one of the friendliest parks we have stayed in, we stayed in an en-suite site and found it very clean and well maintained. Staff were extremely helpful on check in giving us plenty of information of the surrounding areas. Will stay here again when in this area and recommend it to friends.

The park would have to rate up there as one of the cleanest and neatest parks. Yes it is a bit noisy bring on the Bruce highway but that is all it has against it. We had a lovely stay and i would recommend this park to everyone. It was very friendly.
