We spent a night with our camper van in a powered site. Not the cheapest, but all the facilities were good and clean. Toilets and showers were clean. Professional staff. We arrived just before closing time and left early, so I don't know the layout from daytime. No problem finding our spot in the dark. I would easily stay here... More

Very pleasant Park with a great location. My wife and I enjoyed walking and bike riding along the beach edge all the way to Palleranda one way or to the Strand in the other direction. Also not a fan of piped radio in the amenities especially the Country station.

We stayed for nearly 3 months as we are a working traveling couple and we had work in Townsville. This park is ideally situated next to the bay and catches any available breezes. Caravan sites are spacious. Staff are very friendly and courteous.

This park has campsites separated by gardens to act as a buffer. The amenities are clean but I was not a fan of the constant radio piped into them. The staff were friendly and our stay was otherwise quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed the sunrise view directly across the road of Magnetic Island and the visit of a barking owl... More

Great place to stay - best value for money. Good space if you're staying as a family. Had a playground so my children could play. Much easier if you want to self cater as they have kitchens in the cabins.

This would have to be one of the cheapest places to stay and is so family friendly. You can use the facilities within the van park or across the road to the beach and an awesome kids park. You are now within a decent walk to the Strand with the improvements to Jezzine Barracks. For location - you are on... More
