Water lovers rejoice - this park is for you. Lake Maraboon is set on the banks of Fairbairn Dam, overlooking the tranquil waters of Lake Maraboon, no less than three times the size of Sydney Harbour. This magnificent location is sure to delight, with endless aquatic pursuits including fishing, swimming and water skiing. Lake Maraboon is fishing heaven, with eight different kinds of fish to catch - but most famous for its plentiful Red Claw Crayfish.Lake Maraboon is midway between Rockhampton and Longreach, under seven hours from Townsville and close to Emerald. The Sapphire Gemfields and coal-mining town of Blackwater are under an hour away.

Had a beautiful a time in the park. We had our spot in the naughty corner, right at the end of the park - nice green spot with lake view and a fridge around the corner (which was awesome as we don't have a fridge in the bus yet). Amenities were nearby and we also enjoyed the fact that you have a individual bathroom with toilette included, which is super practical as you can have a shower and do anything else like getting ready or doing your hair in one go. The amenities were very clean. Pool was nearly empty as we went for a swim, refreshing and clean as well. Staff is very friendly, thank you to the nice lady at the bar for a bit extra Kakao on the Cocktail. Would definitely recommend staying here!

We have been here a few times now and it's still an awesome place to go. The park is so clean and the amenities are awesome and there is lots of space, the owners are super nice and friendly, they have a great little bar and restaurant and there is a great walk around the lake. If you have a chance you have to stop for a couple of nights at least, Oh this place is famous for it's Red Claw crayfish!!!

Stayed in a villa which was nice, fairly clean but, there was only one scrappy tea towel supplied so I was not confident that cutlery/crockery etc was going to be Covid clean after washing up after dinner and breakfast. Towels were very thin and only supplied bare minimum, only one hand towel for bathroom, extra toilet and kitchen. No shampoo supplied, not a big deal but I did not bother taking any out as said fully equipped and because cabin was not cheap did expect a few more basics. Camp kitchen needs a good scrub and clean, certainly not up to standard let alone in this climate! Restaurant was nice, food good.
