From the moment you enter reception, you feel welcomed. We stayed in a studio unit and found the bed perfect and the other facilities were fantastic as well. Great value and right across from the beach. Although we did not have children with us, we loved that the children were catered for with face painting and an Easter Egg hunt....

We stayed for three nights in our caravan on a powered site. The amenities were very clean, great showers and the park is well set out and very well maintained. The location is great, just a short drive to The Strand and the CBD. Free WiFi is also available throughout the park. We took the ferry to Magnetic Island and...

We stayed in an Ensuite Villa and it was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. Ensuite is quite small but enough room to do what you need to. Cabin was clean and had all amenities we needed. Wifi is included but is patchy. Used that as the excuse not to do any work :) Location is...

All clean and cabins in great condition. We were in two different cabins during our stay as we had more family arriving after second night so needed a bigger cabin. The transition between cabins was coordinated well by reception. Toddler-friendly pool, extra activities during school holidays, friendly and helpful staff and a beautiful location. Win! I only wish we were...

We were only able to stay one night in this friendly holiday park with very good amenities. The location was excellent and the suggestion by reception to take a walk along the esplanade was just what we needed after a long day's drive. The staff were really helpful and we would definitely recommend to others. A word of warning -...

My family and I stayed for 2 nights. All staff were super friendly and helpful. Cabins were very clean and tidy and the lark was close to town. Loved that the beach was straight across the road. All of us had a ball and will be staying here from now on 😀 keep up the great work

Well if your camper van is going to fall apart then you couldn't pick a better place for it to happen!! The staff bent over backwards to help us while we waited for our replacement transport. This is a lovely site with great and extremely clean amenities. Right opposite Magnetic Island and not far from the strand where you will...

Hubby chose this place. Easy to find, very friendly and helpful at check-in. Beach is across the street. Plus walking/running/biking trail. A few amenities blocks, ours was block 3. Very clean, 99.9% bug free which was very nice after several other caravan parks. I know bugs are part of nature but it was a nice break. Great showers, toilets and...
