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 Gladstone, 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 Millenium 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were greeted by Wonderful staff on reception who made us feel very welcome. Helpful information on the area. Lovely campground with excellent amenities. We had an ensuite site and it was very clean. Great location adjacent to a lovely esplanade walk from the estuary to the beautiful ocean beach. We will stay again 🤗

Unbelievably great value! We stayed for 4 nights within school holiday period yet our 1-bedroom self contained beach front cabin was priced well under $100/night! Modern, clean accommodation offering all you need and set in beautifully manicured surrounds. Mattress and Pillows provided were perfect! Road is a little busy for a no through road however, drivers generally drive at a slower pace and we heard no traffic noise whilst inside. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and amenities cover the needs of everyone.
If staying in cabins facing road, be extra vigilant supervising small children as road is only a few metres away.
Midgies (biting insects) are brutal so stock up on insect repellent.

Great location to ride bicycles along the esplanade, there's also a great Life Saving Club nearby for meals or drinks overlooking the ocean. Clean amenities. Friendly service, we paid $30 per night for an unpowered site which we could choose from an open camping area.

I found this caravan park too expensive for what you get. It was $67 per night for an ensuite site with no concrete slab, terrible tv coverage & poor wifi if you are not close to office. The office is not manned full time & if unattended you retrieve your ensuite key & info pack from a locked box & they text you a code. We have stayed at parks for half that price with better service.
Close to a walking track to a park & beach. Not far to walk to surf club but much further to walk if you need groceries.

Dear Trip Advisor please update your options THIS IS A CARAVAN PARK not a hotel or other lesser place.

The caravan park is located beside Wild Cattle Creek which is an interesting tidal estuary. There is a shared walkway that runs from the Park to Canoe Point which is about 2.5 km and the beaches are easy to walk at low tide.
The Park has many sites with power and water and plenty of space between each site. There are two amenity blocks which are okay if the Park is not over full. Staff are helpful and friendly and the check-in is easy if you have your personal info and Covid declaration ready.
Good Telstra and wi-fi service plus cable connection to the Park's TV system and the inviting pool is 'just right' for cooling off in during any day.
This Park gave us the the easy feeling of, "If anything might not be not okay just ask" and it will be sorted very quickly.

We have just had two weeks at the Discovery Park and we really had a relaxing holiday, we stayed in an ensuite caravan site and it was very well set up and very clean. The sites are big and we had plenty of space for everything. It is a nicely maintained park and the pool is lovely. The only thing is the Midges, with the park close to the mangroves I got eaten alive, so make sure you pack plenty of strong repellent but that is not a negative for the park. Overall we really liked everything about our stay and would recommend this park.

I was looking for a place with a stovetop and large pans to sterilize bottles and enough room for 2 children to play in and room for a portacot.
This place had lots of room.
The bed was comfortable.
Air conditioning cooled us down nicely.

But the best thing was the service. When I checked in, a young girl was asking a staff member about the Park's kids club and staff got down to her level and explained what was planned. It was great to see them talk so clearly and kindly to the child who must have been 7 years old.

Will definitely return!

Asked for a powered site for 4 days, none available, yet we could see from our site, a powered site that was never used while we were there.

Laundry had 3 washing machines, 2 driers, only one washing machine was working.

Bathrooms were cleaned at 9 am, just when people want to use them.

Certainly not up to the standard we usually get at a discovery park.

This is by far the best caravan park we have stayed in within Australia. Spacious site even able to store our boat two dog friendly open beaches for them to play in. The fishing in Gladstone is superior to everywhere we have been. We will be back. The staff are So so lovely too.
