One night stop over so didn’t get to use the facilities are activities but everything looks clean, neat and well maintained. We had an economy cabin. Water pressure great, everything works, hanger in shower to put shampoo etc in (sounds like a small thing but it’s really important but rare). They provide soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion, dish detergent etc. everything was clean and well maintained. After hours key collection was easy and all the info about the park was included. Staff were great. If you can afford it go for the queen bed cabin - it’s worth it.

Have booked into this park for 4 days on a powered caravan site. Concrete slab is broken and uneven. The bathrooms are really old and also not clean! The door to the Ladies was damaged so they removed the door all together which did not make me feel safe. The mini golf was fun and they do have a pool and water park and games rooms however I did not use these facilities. My relatives stayed in one of their beach side cabins which were also dirty. Most of the staff were nice but there was one who was very abrupt. Also there were ,not many lights on in the park at night so visibility was poor which was not good for walking unless you had a torch.

Very well looked after here. Staff are friendly. Lots of things for kids and adults to do on the property, no need to leave for activities, but heaps close by if you do. We stayed for 10 nights and were pleasantly surprised by what this place has to offer. We’d give it 10 out of 5 if the app allowed.

Quick one night stopover. The reception ladies were great- happily printing off qld border passes for us. The cabin was small but fine for a night. They didn't supply cots but that was ok with 1 yo sharing my bed. The kids play area and pools are great and kept kids entertained for hours. Beach close by. Would recommend.

although the park is lovely and clean with many amenities, None of this matters when the staff you are dealing with day in day out are far from friendly and polite. we experienced racism, and extremely unacceptable verbal abuse from staff at the park!!
