Amazing spot with everything you could possibly need!!! Beach close by, pool on site, great camp kitchens and BBQ facilities!! Great spot for families or adult travellers. Office staff are very friendly. Easter weekend had lots of free events and activities including Easter egg hunt for kids.

We stayed on a powered site for three nights. Our kids loved it. For the cost of a 2 year Discovery Parks membership they had unlimited access to the pedal cars & could go on the water castle & attend kids club. The Kids Holiday activities were excellent.

We had a short but lovely spot at Tannum Sands. We stayed in an ensuite site which was big and well maintained. The ensuite was lovely, clean and modern. The park was quiet and spacious. Andy on the front desk was lovely and super helpful. Wish we had longer to enjoy it. Great walk across from park and beach.

We spent 2 nights in a Delux cabin, which was perfect for a low-key, simple get-away. The cabin and surrounds were spotless and the double bed was really comfortable however the sofa was looking a little tired and it's almost time for a couple of repairs to joinery in the kitchen area. Having said that it was an excellent place...

Good location, pool good, good laundry area, friendly staff. We stayed in private facilities room. But to get to them you had to go outside, why they built them like that ?? Who knows, a slight configuration would make them ensuite ! Still all good. Pleasant stay. Ate at surf Club and pub both good

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
