I booked a disability suite to help accommodate my mum who had a broken shoulder. Very modern suite and good size. Handy to the Townsville hospital too. Very close to a number of large shopping centres. Bins from service station next door were just on the other side of the fence and were so stinky u had to shut the...

Had a great stay at this park. Park was very clean and well maintained. Gardens have improved so much since our last stay. Only addition needed is more shade around and over the pool. The weather here is so extreme and to show some sun smart initiative would be great.

We stayed here for 2 nights on a powered site with an ensuite and were very happy with everything. The sites are large, private and spacious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The gardens are well manicured and looked after well. They offer a fuel and food discount from the adjoining service station. Very pet friendly.

The pool is probably the highlight, as well as the friendly staff. The kids play area is also nice and new, all is kept clean the ought the park. Probably the only real let down is the fact that it is on the highway, and there is nothing blocking your swim from the passing traffic.. The park also shares its...

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. There are opportunists in our area and we are working with the local...
