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.

Loved the tropical feel. Great park that seems to run like a well oiled machine. Facilities are very clean and the park is clearly well cared for. Sites are very close but wasn’t a problem due to foliage between sites. We were surprised at the number of school age children staying. It would be nice to have had use of pool that wasn’t part of the waterslide development. If you are looking for quiet time around the pool early morning is the only opportunity. We probably wouldn’t return only because we enjoy quieter pool settings.

Great park. It’s a bit out if Airlie but not too bad. So many waterslide seven the parents had a ball. Great playground and much more. We had a big site with lots of greenery between sites. Quiet at night. It felt more like a resort than caravan park.

I’ll start by saying the facilities for the kids are awesome at this park and give you lots of activities to do as a family. There are great activities offered daily as well. Our issues came from the fact that the largest toilet and shower block had no hot water for two days. This means all campers had to use 2 showers between them - and this is a big park! With a park such as this emergency works needed to be completed as soon as there was a problem to fix the issue. The next problem was the camp kitchen - it’s just too small for the size of the park. We couldn’t get in to cook as it was too busy. Lastly, there isn’t enough laundry facilities for everyone and as such their is a long wait. I will stay the check in staff were lovely despite being very busy!

Thank you Jo for taking the time to write a review from your recent stay, so happy to read that you and the family enjoyed all of the facilities, the daily activity guide and all that the resort offers for guests. We would however of course like to follow up on your comments regarding the problem with the hot water systems in one of our amenities block during your stay. I know that it does not help now, but this was one of those incredibly frustrating situations ... as soon as it was reported by a guest in the morning that there was no hot water, our Maintenance Team attended immediately and were unable to restart the water heaters, at which time we called in the external plumber to investigate and fix the issue. Everything was then working perfectly ... the same thing happened again that afternoon, and again the plumber was called and restarted the unit. After yet another report during the night the plumber and electrician arrived first thing the next morning and replaced the electrical component of the circulation pump, midday again another report by a guest that there is no hot water, the electrician and plumber return again, the new part installed was then deemed faulty, a new pump was then fitted and hot water returned, please rest assured our team are very proactive for any issues that may arise and impact our guests stay as it is the upmost importance to us, equally on this occasion it was treated as very much an emergency and we did everything as soon as we were notified of the problem it was unfortunately a series of very frustrating events. Everything has been fine since. As I say, it does not help your situation, and we do sincerely apologise for the problem. With regards to the camp kitchen and laundry facilities again we must apologise that it wasn’t pointed out on the resort map when you arrived that there are two camp kitchen and laundries for guests to avoid too many queues especially during the peak meal times and washing days. I do hope that your stay with us was otherwise enjoyable and hope to see you back again one day soon.

This time we stayed in a cabin instead of camping and loved it. Kids enjoyed all their favourites like the pool, slides and mini golf. Unfortunately the jumping pillows have been removed, apparently due to insurance, according to the sign, but every other park we stayed at still has theirs so a bit interesting. Petting zoo had 2 baby calves this time. Staff are amazing and did their best to accommodate for wet weather with extra indoor movies. Cabin was immaculately clean and everything worked perfectly. You pay extra here but is worth it.

Thank you andrewtanyadawson for taking the time to share your feedback from your recent return stay, we are so very happy to read that you and the family enjoyed all that we have to offer despite the bit of wet weather during your holiday this time. It is a very sad and unfortunate circumstance with regards to our jumping pillows, we as a team are totally devastated for our guests that we had to remove them about 6 months ago knowing how much they were loved. As the sign advised due to new insurance regulations within Australia, although other resorts around Australia do currently have them, many over the last six months and moving forward when renewing their insurance may also be required to remove theirs, please rest assured we exhausted every possibly way to keep them included in our resort offerings but were unable, however as you would know from your visits we as a resort and team are forever adding new and exciting activities and facilities to the resort, so watch this space, many thanks again 😊

What a manicured, loved park! We loved staying here for 2 weeks, their pay for one get another free was a DEAL! We were there non school holidays but still the park is bubbling over with children. Lovely for families , but as grey nomads, we would have loved not waking up to squealing kids on bikes and crying babies...but that said OH how we wish it had a section and pool just for adults. Loveld the magnificent planting between each site, the bird life..loved it all....these owners love their park..CONGRATULATIONS!

We had a great day at the pool and slides. I can see the Big 4 as a convenient spot especially with older children getting around on their own. No shortage on the fun things available to do without leaving the resort. I can highly recommend a stay a this resort.

We're Grey Nomads, so didn't need all the fantastic facilities here for families with kids, but there is ample here to keep the kids (young and teens) entertained, that's for sure! Our site was ideal for our large van, no problems getting in or out with ample room. The park is only 6mins drive from the Airlie Beach shopping and beach precinct. The park can assist with your tour bookings too, with friendly staff ready to assist. We will definitely be back, and have already recommended this park to our friends and family.

When I booked I was told we had a big grassy site we had barely enough room to park our car on the site, this park is really for families we should of chosen another park. The park roads are messy and it certainly doesn’t warrant the price charged.
