Me and my family had a great stay at the campground! We stayed for two nights. The drive there is very possible with a camper, although some parts of the road are really narrow. Bush turkeys, kangaroos and wallabies are always there. Around dusk, many wallabies and kangaroos can be spotted grazing just outside the camping. The only really disappointing...

We found the staff to be so friendly, we stayed in a cabin and found some maintenance issues which when brought to the attention of the staff were fixed promptly. We found the cabin to be clean and tidy but getting a little tired, the cupboards were in need of repair and there was door on the freeze so it...

The park was able to cater for some larger vans and these sites were large and good. Sites were separated mostly by shrubbery and ours had a good view of the water between the trees. Camp facilities were quite acceptable however there is almost no phone or internet reception but this is available at nearby Seaforth where there is also...

We stayed here in July 2016 for a few nights. The tourist park is situated approximately 50klms from Mackay & major shops so good to make sure you have enough groceries for your stay. Basic things can be purchased at the Camp office. The camp site was good and nice to have trees and shrubbery for some privacy with neighbours....

We were in a caravan and the sites were good with shrubs and trees between most. Some sites were under trees.
