We stayed overnight on our way through to central Queensland. Great drive through grass powered sites. Very clean and tidy park. Amenities spotless. Friendly staff. This was our third time here but first on a powered site. We'll be back!

Had an overnight stop in a cabin and found it clean and comfortable. The camping and caravan area was well kept, the amenities for them is excellent from what we saw. The park itself is well maintained and has a pool for those hot days. Located 1 klm from the shops it is very handy. Would recommend as a good...

Stayed here for two nights. The cabin was so clean and although small as one would expect everything was in it that we needed. The pool looked lovely even though we didn't get time to use it. The park was beautifully maintained and the amenities were spotless. It was a lovely peaceful place to stay and only a short drive...

Stayed here on our way through town. Cabin was so clean and nicer than many hotels. Good cooking facilities and bed was fine. Lovely pool. Just a short drive out of town. Looked like a great place for campervans too.

This park is beautifully maintained. Green grass is rare out here, but the gardens are a credit to the managers. The pool is refreshing, ammenities spotless, and staff very helpful. We would thoroughly recommend!

This tourist park is extremely well kept. Managers very nice and friendly. Pool (although warm) is wonderful on a hot day. We booked a cabin for 4 and traveled with a few friends who also booked cabins - one was for 3, and another for 2. Prices seemed confusing and cabins offered seemed a bit random - it seemed like...

Opted for unpowered campsite for a day. Very green area fill of grass and trees. Very nice clean kitchen equipped with microwave, stove, pizza/bead baking oven, TV. Over all a very nice place. Costed approx $40 for 3 people for a unpowered campsite for a night which is quite reasonable. Baths and Toilets are clean too.

We stayed one night at the Pelican Rest and were so happy with the cabin. It was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. We stayed in one of the beautiful new cabins. The property is so peaceful, the pool is gorgeous and the staff are very friendly. We would most certainly stay here again. It was the perfect place...

One of the best ones we stayed in this holiday. Very roomy sites. Older but very clean amenities. Camp kitchen has a pizza oven! Nice little pool area. I'd recommend this park no matter what size van you have.

We are only here overnight but could stay for over a week. The grass is green. The cabins are spacious and there is a beautiful swimming pool with outdoor seating to relax at. There are horses in a nearby yard and roos that come to visit at dusk. The room we are in is fully contained with everything we need...
