Great place for a weekend getaway or longer stay, booking and check in was very easy. We stayed on a caravan ensuite site which was clean and very large in comparison to other caravan parks. Good facilities, great grassed areas, very well maintained. The Tannum Sands foreshore is without a doubt a star attraction with plenty of shade, bbq's and...

Great place for kids to enjoy the pool and the kids play area. Air conditioned cabins were great. Lots of facIlities . The green areas and the wildlife was a bonus. Kangaroos were hopping about. There were kookaburras - peacocks and lots of other birds. Close to beach - had a lovely time.

Great spot for a quiet getaway. Facilities were dated, but clean. Showers had plenty of pressure. Pool was nice and plenty of space. We stayed on a powered site. Big sites with large slabs. Camp kitchen in well provisioned. Unfortunately, reception did not tell us about promotions that were occurring at the time of our stay. I find this a...

Booking online was easy, we received an email prior to our stay with some info which was good. The only thing I would say with that is there was no timings for reception, I couldn't find it on the website either. Easy to find, very friendly staff. We stayed in a cabin which could house 2 adults and 3 kids....

We stayed a week on a powered site in a shady area. Have also stayed in a cabin on a previous visit. From the moment we arrived Andy was helpful, professional, warm and friendly. He 'organised' a self drive tour of Gladstone, and had the knowledge to advise where to eat out in Tannum Sands/Boyne Island. The park is in...

We only stayed here for one night. Our site was very private and large with plenty of shade. The gardens are well looked after and the facilities are very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is only a short walk to the beach and park.

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
