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.

We stayed here for a family get together; we had a powered caravan site and the extended family had two villas. We had a child aged 3 and my cousin’s child aged 6. They had an amazing time!

The jumping pillow and pool are shaded, which is super handy for sun protection. The pool is also heated. It has a slide and a rock cave with waterfall which our kids absolutely adored, plus water shower features in the shallow end. Needless to say we spent a lot of time in the pool this weekend.

The jumping pillow area is fully fenced (no chasing after kids) and also has a coffee van with some of the best coffee I’ve ever tasted. The view over the water is phenomenal, and on Saturday afternoon they had drinks, cocktails and live music. Our entire family had a great time cooking up a bbq and sitting back relaxing listening to the music.

The caravan spots are generous, with some on the creek and some not. While you can still see hints of Caloundra with signs of the shops nearby it’s easy to forget how close you are to everything. Shops are a few minutes walk away, and you’ve got a gorgeous coastal walk right behind you through a gate in the jumping pillow.

Reception are professional and patient (my elderly parents tested that haha), but super helpful and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

The amenities block was huge, with plenty of toilets and cubicles, and most importantly, clean. The laundry was useful and there’s a generous amount of drying lines outside, perfect if this spot is just one stop off on a road trip.

We would 100% stay here again, longer if we could. It was hard to fault anything.

We had a five day family stay in June 2020 with our two kids (6 & 8) in a beautiful waterview cabin,
The cabin was perfectly clean and everything worked so good for ourlittle family holiday, Lovely view from the deck looking over the water and the kids watched the pelicans while having dinner and had an absolute bull, Even though it was June the girls loved playing in the heated pool and also loved the water slide and couldn't enough of it and loved playing with other kids in the park and had a great time. Everything in the park was so neat and tidy and the staff were very very friendly and very welcoming and very very helpful whenever we needed anything,We thought this was very very good value for money and will 100% definitely be back and it is also great that it has a coffee van on site for those yummy coffees and cakes etc every day and also loved how close it was to everything and was so easy to find everything in the park and we will be hopefully back here for some of the September school holidays and in the holidays next year, I highly recommend this place to everyone, it has 100+ stars from me. Fantastic family getaway place and also kids loved the jumping pillow.

Would recommend this holiday park to anyone. The location is brilliant walking access to beaches both calm and surf with an array of coffee shops and restaurants so no need to drive.
The park itself is clean and a great size with a great pool and jumping pillow along with a daily coffee van. The staff are always really helpful and nothing is too much for them while the grounds people are continually around keep everything outside clean and tidy. Great site, great staff, great location 👍🏼

This is our second stay here and we are so looking forward to many more. Reception are welcoming, helpful, organised and was clear to see how much they enjoy seeing the kiddies out enjoying themselves. We stayed in a banksia cabin, it was one of the nicest cabins we have ever stayed in, there is 5 of us but we fitted perfectly. All amenities were tidy and clean and we loved all the kids activities arranged.
Location of the park was perfect - close to the water for fishing and beach play, shopping centre across the road and ofcourse awesome fish n chip so close.
We can’t wait to come back xx

There is nothing negative I can say about BIG4 Caloundra. The sites are large with most having a good double cement slab, the amenities are spotlessly clean 24 hours a day and never crowded. Facilities for the kids are outstanding and the onsite coffee van and various food trucks are a great addition. For me also, the security staff they put on over the holiday period to patrol at night is greatly reassuring, not that there appears to be any overt problem anyway. Fantastic proximity to all of the shops and beaches nearby. We will be back again next Easter, for our 6th year in a row.

The park is out standing with the cleanliness, tidiness and well maintained facilities and is most definitely family friendly.
The staff are all friendly and welcoming on checking in, the groundsman are seen working hard to keep the park well maintained and the cleaning staff are keeping everything hygienic and clean, with extra measures complying with The Covid policies.
Tom & Andy’s offer tasty food and drinks the staff are very friendly.
The holiday activities are well run with friendly, caring staff for the campers, which is outstanding keeping everyone entertained, specially the children.
The park is situated in a ideal place as you can park the car and walk to everything, beaches, cafe’s, fast food, cinema, pubs, RSL and shopping centres.
Also very handy for fishing, bike riding and picturesque walks.
We love this park and continue to return each year.
A big thank you to all the staff.

We discovered the big 4 Caloundra during Easter in 2014. We were so impressed with the staff, they made us feel welcome and were very easy to talk to, always going out of their way to help. The caravan park is a perfect location and caters for families, travellers or couples with great daily activities for kids including a pool, jumping cushion and pedal carts. The spots are spacious and provide enough privacy and the grounds are well looked after. The recent addition of a coffee cart that also sells alcohol and snacks is a great place to sit and chat with friends looking out at the Pumicestone passage. There is a covered bbq and even fresh herbs growing to use in your cooking. We were lucky enough to get a spot at Christmas and look forward to coming every year.
Thank you Big 4 Caloundra for making our yearly holiday very special

Great location although the street noise for our camp site was very loud and disruptive to sleep. Our play may be better suited to a caravan to try and shut out the traffic.

The location was great for my favourite beaches at Kings and Bullock and to catch up with family and friends in the area. Facilities are well kept and staff very friendly and helpful.

Look forward to coming back but will request a different plot.

Big 4 Caloundra is a tourist attraction in itself!
Not only are the grounds immaculate, they are well equipped, Covid safe and staffed perfectly.

We were treated like old friends, everyone wore a smile and were happy to point us in the right direction.

The facilities are top notch!
Very clean, very tidy and abundant.
There is a fantastic school holidays program with activities for young and old. The pool is heated with a slide and and stairs. The jumping pillow and go carts kept the kids busy and they loved the magic show and face painting.

There is a brilliant area to watch over the kids while enjoying a coffee or a cocktail. Dinner is taken care off with amazing well price wood fried pizzas and breakfast is covered with wrap and muffins.

Centrally located to all things of importance, it didn’t matter we forgot all cooking equipment. We had full use of a herb garden, bbq facilities and picnic areas but we had Kmart, coles, woolies and bws right across the road.

Right out front is a wonderful spot to relax and fish off the jetty, the boys bought back a crab and some lovely whiting.

We wandered through the markets, went up town and enjoyed a dessert, a play in the rock pools and ride on the Ferris wheel and a Beautiful stroll home.

We had friends stay who were first time campers and they loved it so much they rebooked before they left. We saw old neighbours here and made new friends. We will definitely turn big 4 Caloundra into an annual family/ friend trip!

Thank you for the fantastic holiday. Grass site 6 & 7😊

Is the park pet friendly?
Caloundra, Australia
Hi we do have some larger sites 13-15 mtrs long that may be able to accommodate the coach and you would have to book another site for the trailer . Please feel free to give our office a call and speak to one of our team members with regard to site availability . Cheers Rob

The sites are not crammed in. They are the normally accepted size and we found backing in our 21ft van was fine. We had friends also staying in the park who were very close by although we hadn't booked at the same time. The staff are friendly and helpful.
