Toilet and shower area lacked regular cleaning and tidying. Catches were missing off door. Some toilets didn’t flush. Taps were loose on basins. The design of the site allocation was very poor with sites very difficult to access. Overall the park needed a big spruce up, it did however have a new water park playground.

We stay in Dicovery parks regularly as generally they are kept very well. Dropped into the Townsville one a couple of nights ago and definitely not up to the usual standard. The camp kitchen Bbq plate was buckled and had a large crack in it. Used one near our camp but had no tap any where nearby so couldn't clean it also the auto on off switch was broken so had to turn the gas on manually. The ensuite was full of frog faeces and frogs. The entry to the site was overgrown by trees so very difficult to get in. Then we went to Airlie Beach Discovery which restored my faith in the brand.

Would not recommend small children in motel rooms. I have a 2 and 3 year old and was given and upstairs room. There was no way I could securely lock the door from the inside, and although the door was quite heavy my 3 year old was able to turn the handle and open door. Also the large glass windows had to stay closed because there was no screen behind them. Kids loved the pool area and playground, the main reason I stayed here for. I most likely won’t stay here again.

We had a terrible stay ... the cabin was dusty dirty and very out of date. the sheets obviously haven’t been changed since the last people, there was hair and dust on the sheets but my biggest problem was things biting us not sure what it was but it was worse in the kids room I actually rang the after hours number to be told there was nothing they could do . The kids woke up with bites in various places . The manager of the park said he would sort it out and get back to me but I’m still waiting we stayed on the 26th of March 2021

Conveniently located right off the A1 this Discovery Park has everything you need. The Deluxe 2 Bed Cabin was clean and well formed. Plenty of extras inside and 3 Air Conditioners. Extra large front deck with table and chairs. Resort pool is lovely and it’s huge! I had a few turns of the slide so it’s great for the big kids 😬 Park currently undergoing renovations and improvements which is great to see! The staff at the front desk today couldn’t be more helpful. Truely the little legends of this park. Fantastic customer service and that’s what this is all about in the industry. Nice work team!
