We parked our RV here for two nights but would like to have stayed longer. Clean, fresh and roomy ablution block, pool, great camp kitchen- very clean and huge. But the best thing was the turtle feeding area. This park is bordered by a creek that abounds with turtles, fish, eels, Bungarra- only saw one- brilliant blue butterflies and birds...

If you want a long breakfast this is the place. First we had to clear our own table of dirty dishes. When we ordered I was give change of 70c in 5c pieces. The coffee eventually arrived in takeaway cups because they had run out of mugs, my meal didn't arrive. The staff took offence when I went to chase...

We ended up staying longer then planned. So friendly and the park is really well kept. Lots of trees and plants to make it look and feel tropical. Also with lots of shrubbery gives the spots a bit more privacy then most parks.

This is a great spot for a base for Cairns and district. Although it it beside a major road, if you ask for a quiet site, you will be very happy like we were. Our site backed onto the Freshwater Creek and you could hear the gentle bubbling of the creek at night. Very well run and clean park. We...

This caravan park is set at the foot of the hills and surrounded by gorgeous scenery. We found it to be a very quiet park, though it was at capacity. There was very few people using the facilities (toilets, showers, pool) meaning they must have ample facilities for their patrons. Staff were so helpful at finding us an alternative cabin...

Lovely environment, great amenities and beautiful gardens. While this park was full with southerners. It was quiet and peaceful. Except for some noisy traffic at times it is a great location to get to town and access to tours. Some tours pick up at the park. Friendly staff abd a very enjoyable holiday.

It was late in the afternoon, and we were wearily looking for a place that we could stay with two dogs. Cool Waters welcomed us, and our pooches on the verandah of our little unit. The place was clean and well equipped with a kitchenette that allowed us to comfortably enjoy our take away dinner. (There is a choice of...
