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.

Spent a few nights at Banana Wells and the only negative was the mosquitos which you can rectify with repellent. The caravan park facilities are basic but kept spotlessly clean . The staff especially Eddie were super friendly and informative and the stay was very relaxing. Highly recommended if you wont a different kind of stay.

Just spent three nights at Banana Well and had a great time. The hosts Julie and Mark are really nice and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I was in a 2wd campervan so couldn’t drive it the 4km down to the creek to go so Mark drove me down and then picked me up a few hours later. He also drove us out onto the mud flats to see the full moon. They lit a fire and invited all the guests around where we sat and chatted over a few beers. I may have been lucky but there were a group of really friendly fellow campers and everyone was chatty and sociable. They sell cold soft drinks and block ice and fishing bait at the sure too. They also sell mosquito spray which you’ll need if you don’t bring your own as the sand flies are a bit bitey.

Great secluded camping with hot showers, clean camp kitchen, and the team (Mark, Julie and Jelanna) are very welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. They bring everyone together and that makes for a fun experience. Enjoyable communal fire on Saturday night. We got to know many of our fellow campers and had a great time together. We had a fabulous five nights. Highly recommended.

We had a great time at Banana Wells, definitely crabbing and fishing recreation in the creek as it has no beach so not fit for swimming. We booked a cabin with adjoining twin rooms - number 6A. It was listed as 'twin rooms with shared verandah area'. We assumed this meant shared between the four of us. It was not clear at all that 'shared' meant with another room 6B which was literally sharing a wall. A family arrived to check into 6B and was unaware that we were all 8 of us sharing the common area which was certainly not sufficient space for strangers to be sharing (BBQ, Fridge, dining table, sink, campfire) Particularly four friends in their 30's and a family with two young children. We also had to give them a spare trundle bed out of our rooms as they only had space to sleep 3. It was quite awkward and we ended up isolating in our room playing cards out of courtesy so as not to 'take over' the common area. This should be disclosed by management and unfamiliar groups only placed together as a last resort. If you stay here be cautious of the A and B and assume that you will have another group on top of you!

Stayed for 6 days and used as a base to explore Cape Leveque. The hosts were very friendly and were willing to assist in any way if required. Large area with clean and tidy facilities. Very quiet and peaceful and in a good location close to other attractions. Power and water made available. Highly recommend.

What an unexpected piece of paradise. Heaps of shade and grass, very well priced $50 for a powered site. Hardly any mozzies, the evening fire is divine with great company and stories from the hosts Carrie and her Uncle Tony. Not many places you can go nowadays and get this type of history. The fishing and crabbing is fantastic, we have never pulled in a crab on a fishing line before so that was a real experience.

We towed our caravan in and received a friendly welcome from our hosts. There are good spots for a camp on a spacious grassy area with trees. Mario who is resident showed us his fishing spots on the coast. The fire under the tree was a good gathering place. All in all... the people great and so helpful with old fashioned hospitality Make sure you take mozzie repellent though

A piece of paradise, big shady trees, lots of grassy camp spots, cabins, super clean amenities, free WI fi. The fishing was great. Lots of fresh spring water. Open fires and plenty of wood available. We found it to be a good base to visit the rest of Cape Leveque.
