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.

Definitely recommend this place :)

Change of plans at the last minute left me without accommodation for the weekend. The staff were super helpful in getting a lovely one bedroom cabin for me at the last minute. All the staff were so friendly. Loved the pizza and cocktails for dinner and then the brekky wrap and coffee the next day.

The location was perfect for someone without a vehicle. The gate access to the supermarket, shops l, coastal walk footpath and beach etc was super convenient.

The cabin was clean, great decor and roomy enough. The view over the creek from the balcony was a great spot to sit and relax. Big air conditioning unit for both heating and cooling and overhead fans worked very well in the space.

The only thing I would have liked was a communal spa as part of the swimming pool area for after my walks.

My partner and I stopped in Caloundra for two nights whilst travelling the east coast in our camper van.

The staff were very friendly and called two hours before reception closed to check we would make it there in time which was a nice touch as it was reassuring knowing they hadn't forgotten we were coming!

The site itself is very nice with a lovely little coffee van located inside the park/swimming area. Amenities were clean and the swimming pool looked great for kids. Laundry area was also good.

Although we got unlucky with the weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend for sure.

The sites are really quite small for the price you pay to pitch a tent! Also they are made of fake grass laid over some type of aggregate so it is incredibly difficult to hammer tent pegs into it! A 3 minute job takes 20minutes in this surface! Also who wants fake grass and micro plastics with their camping experience? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of being in the great outdoors for a weekend?! There is a gate down to the creek which doesn’t close which is extremely dangerous if you are camping with little ones as we were. Facilities were lovely and clean but this is not worth the price for camping.

Response from Alex Derickx, General Manager at Big 4 Caloundra
Responded 18 Mar 2024
Thanks for sharing a review. We will take your feedback on board but a few points worth mentioning: 1. The artificial turf assists with drainage and mud issues and feedback from most guests is that they prefer this style of site. If it isn't your preference, that's ok, but it's a far cleaner alternative for camping. 2. We note the creek on our maps and in our terms and conditions, plus there is signage on site informing parents and caregivers of the potential water hazard. We are lucky enough to be on a natural waterway and it would be impossible to fence or gate this area entirely. 3. Our prices are often dynamically priced and vary depending on demand. By no means are we the most expensive but we do offer fantastic facilities, amenity and location and so we price accordingly. We are glad you enjoyed the location - Caloundra, specifically the Pumicestone passage, is a beautiful spot :)

As a disabled person I have seen such amazing facilities. Bathroom exceptional, well thought out kitchen with wheelchair-level BBQ and wash up facilities. Park very wheelchair friendly, we have spent 10 nights here and sadly have to leave tomorrow due to the weekend being fully booked. A lovely park in a good position and amazing staff, we will be back over & over & over .......

We were greeted by a helpful staff member on arrival. Park and amenities were clean. Pool is great for the kids and being right by the water was nice.
But
On the second day we had a not so helpful staff member, the whole stay was not relaxing and peaceful due to so much traffic noise all day and night. You only get one key to get in and out of access gates which makes it hard if you have family members doing different things (ie. husband was in the pool with the child while I was walking the dog) only one of us had access to the toilets. This park is a Big 4 park but the unhelpful office lady told us that they don’t offer the big 4 perks that come with the membership such as late check out.
Overall it’s an ok park but we will not be back because it’s not relaxing due to the constant traffic noise.

We LOVED our stay at BIG 4 Caloundra for 10days with the family.
The caravan park is kept so clean & tody, amenities kept clean, pool is sparkling and water slides are an added bonus which kids loved!
In park coffee van open daily which we loved!
Park is so close to shops, walking tracks and eateries.
Defiantly enjoyed our stay and staff were all very friendly!

Everything you would expect and more!
Fantastic communication with the guests via sms.
Documented evidence of the amenities being cleaned at least three times a day.
Live music at Tom & Andy’s (a cafe & bar within the park) by the pool.
COVIDSafe awareness in the appropriate locations.
And a really great atmosphere.
Would definitely recommend!

For the start everything was so easy. We arrived early and were welcomed into the park with a tour of facilities. Once set up the kids could explore all the fun things to do. Such a great location within walking distance to everything. No need to use the car at all. The park is so quiet and relaxing! We’ll definitely be back.

Stayed for 5 nights family of 4 in the Hibiscus #13 waterfront cabin. It was extremely clean and very large with two seperate bedrooms, large kitchen/lounge dining. A great deck which over looks the water and cycle/walk way.

The pool is quite spacious.

The whole park looked very clean. They had live entertainment on some of the nights, kids club activities including a huge waterslide.

Walk 1km easy flat stroll to the beach or 1km to other way to Kings Beach.

Stunning weather and great fishing directly in front of the cabin.

Fantastic holiday.

Only negative would be no bbq for the cabin.
