This is a lovely caravan park in a fabulous setting! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The amenities need updating though! (otherwise it would have been a 5 star review) Every morning, the kangaroos are fed on the beach giving you great photo opportunities and a memorable experience. There are lovely walks on the beach and to the fabulous lookouts too.

The location is great and the kangaroos on the beach in the morning and laying around in the park during the day is nice, but it is a bit out of the way and the cabins were a bit basic but comfortable. Am glad we came here but probably would not come back.

After reading all the reviews, I still went ahead and booked 2 nights during school holidays at the family beach cabin nbr 3. We went expecting the worst after all the bad reviews but took a chance as I knew the scenery and nature would be amazing. We had a Covid scare 3 weeks before our check in date as we are from Melbourne, I called them and spoke to the owner about options to re-schedule but we were already within the cancelation policy and they are not flexible at all if you need to cancel due to Covid. It needed to be cancelled before the start of the school holidays and not 2 weeks before arrival so be careful as you will loose your money if you can’t travel due to lockdown. Arriving at the park expecting everyone to be rude, we had quite the opposite. The lady who checked us in was super friendly and so was everyone else we spoke to that worked there. The cabin… well… because we expected to be very bad we were actually surprised. Ok it is small, the living room is tiny but the beds were ok, linen acceptable, kitchen & utensils clean and in good condition, good bathroom, location perfect!! The cost of $245 per night was very expensive for what you get but we were right on the beach. Woke up to see the few kangaroos on the beach, there is a ranger that feeds them which it does not make it so natural, but at the end of the day, they are just kangaroos and not an extinct animal so seeing them at the beach at sunrise was pretty cute, even if they are there because of the food. There are some residents kangaroos on the camp, the kids absolutely loved hanging out with them. They also loved the mini golf which was free and the pool with the slides were a lot of fun too. In all, I would say it was very ok, we did 3 out of the 4 walks, beautiful part of the world! We just wished it was a bit warmer.

Booked and paid for a 1 night stay in July 21 during school holidays but because of covid lock down in SEQ I was unable to get there on the day booked .Rang and asked them if I could change the booking to the following night which they refused citing rules for school holiday bookings even though they admitted there were free spots available on the night requested. They said I would lose my payment already made and would have to pay for another night even though spots were available on both nights. I checked the website and they way it could be interpreted I should have been able to change the booking for 3 days before the date with only a $20 rebooking fee. I was not trying to cancel my booking but just change it to the next night because of government lock downs. They chose to keep the deposit on a technicality. What sort of immoral and mercenary trading practices is this. How could they have possibly won the business awards in the past they claim. How can a tourist business survive doing this to their customers. My experiences of this park can only recommend YOU GIVE THIS PARK A WIDE BERTH and stay somewhere else in the area. If you are forced to stay there for whatever reason, be extremely carefull with your financial dealings with them. They are hard nosed, immoral and mercenary in their trade practices. There are much better places to stay at Cape Hillsborough anyway. Unfortunately these types of traders give the honest parks a bad name. All they had to do was change the booking by 1 day since spaces were available and they would have had a happy customer. They chose greed over good business practice. I will never prebook and pay a caravan park again. I will just role up and take my chances before parting with my cash. Once bitten twice shy. I will take this complaint to the Commission of Fair Trading for evaluation but in the meantime just be carefull when dealing with them. Vince

Visited family members staying in the park and were unaware that we would be charged as a visitor. We paid $10 each for the privilege of sitting at a caravan site for a 2 hr visit. When questioning reception about charge they said it was for use of facilities and insurance purposes. Considering we did not use any facilities and the park would be covered under public liability. This charge should be clearly displayed at park entry. This attitude reinforces other reviews about the unfriendly and officious attitude of management.
