I'll give a very honest and unbiased review here with all things considered. Please see my many TripAdvisor reviews for good reads on my travel experiences! https://www.tripadvisor.com/members/Erin_leigh79 My husband and I were visiting my sister, brother-in-law, and my two young nephews for a few days in Mackay. She suggested we do an overnight in one of the larger family cabins...

Thank you for you lovely feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you had an experience to remember and enjoyed your stay with us.

We had a great time here. Beach huts were clean and comfortable. The staff couldnt have been nicer. Even let us borrow one of their fishing rods. Highly recommend. Also some really easy walks around the place.

This is a superb location that our family has visited many times and met with family members for a group camp. Real family atmosphere. Kangaroos on the beach each morning early. Nature aplenty set amongst national park. Bush turkeys running free around park. Great Nature walks and bush track to fish trap. Great kids activities, including night movies during school...

We went to the beach early in the morning to watch the kangaroos, and the staff was very unfriendly and unrespectful to us. Probably because we were no guests of the resort. We will definitely never check in there. Very disappointed. They even tried to send us away, on a public beach.

Hi Kelvin L Due to the increased popularity of Cape Hillsborough Nature Tourist Park's hero experience of sunrise with the kangaroos and wallabies on the beach, it now requires full time monitoring from staff. We have successfully sustained this experience for the past 15 years. National Parks are aware and support how we achieve the balance between nature and tourism....

Stayed 2 nights in a campervan in December. Park was clean and tidy with basic yet perfectly functional facilities. What makes the place so special is the kangaroos and wallabies. Well worth getting up at 5am to walk the 30 seconds to the beach to see upwards of 20 on the beach. In the evenings some would hop past the...

We have been coming to Cape Hillsborough for years and love it! The park is perfect for a family holiday and the kids all run as a pack: moving from beach to pool, to mountain, to campsite. There's a wonderful freedom and safety for them and I feel that we parents can truly relax. Each time we visit there's a...

We visited this park Easter 2016. Best holiday in a long time. The activities that were put on for the kids and the nightly movies on the big screen were great. Can't wait to go back. Well worth the 4 hour drive.
