Been coming here for years no problem with managers they run a very good and clean park do not put up with any trouble maker's. If you do the wrong thing they will ask you to leave. The people that put up all these negative reports have nothing better to do with there time. They are the ones who are...

This is the third time we have taken our caravan to this park and again, we were not disappointed. Set in a rainforest on the beach it is a beautiful spot. Amenities are clean as is the pool and the managers, Cathy and Al are always pleasant. Not much at Midge Point, apart from a pub and a few small...

This is our 4th trip into Qld towing a caravan. We have always seen the sign post on the side of the road pointing to Midge Point and thought with a name like that we would leave it well and truly alone. My wife is a natural feast for these types of bugs and pays dearly for bites. This time...

We stayed Anzac long weekend with two other families. We have never been here prior and wanted to try another park. We booked, and we were a little concerned regarding the negative reviews. We were greeted on arrival by lady manager, and promptly shown to our site. The sites were huge, clean and tidy. I was pleased as a mother...

Very unhappy with this caravan park. Will never stay again. Wasn't allowed to keep aircon on through out the day to keep the cabin cool on a 37 plus day. When we did keep it on we got yelled at. There is little signs within the cabin telling you what not to do. When walking past the house out the...

We enjoyed 8 weeks at Midge Point and thoroughly enjoyed Traveller's Rest CP. The Managers Cathy and Al had a campfire each night and it was lovely to sit around with fellow campers and enjoy a drink or two while discussing our travels. Other activities were organised such as sausage sizzles, karaoke nights and a fund raising morning tea for...

This park is situated quite a way off the Bruce Highway, so it takes a while to get there along a road festooned with wallaby carcasses – far more than is the norm. We had booked in for three nights but after being yelled at and sworn at the male manager we decided not to unhitch and just move on...

What a taste of paradise. The park is well grassed and set amongst plenty of shady trees and well spaced out. I can quite understand why people come for a couple of days and stay a week. Amenities are good and kept very clean. I cannot understand previous negative comments. This is one of the nicest caravan parks we have...

I can't understand the negative comments. We have stayed at this park 4 times both in a cabin and in our motor home. I found the cabin to have everything you need. They were clean and comfortable. The van sites are great either grass or a slab. Amenities are clean and as is the pool. The grounds are kept lovely....
