My husband and I stayed here for one night with our baby whilst travelling down the east coast. We had an ensuite pitch. The staff were friendly upon arrival and we collected the key to our ensuite and set up. The ensuite was of a good size and was better than others we had seen. Only downside was no towel...

Stayed at this park for an overnighter. While the facilities for caravanning were ok the pools were uncovered, unbearably hot and unusable. The new waterpark hardly worked and the pool slide gave my daughter a head injury.

Awesome managers and so much to do..... kids can play mini golf, swim in the pool and go down the slide or even fish in the lake behind the caravan park. There is also a jumping pillow but it needs to be fixed. Just remember mossie coils and spray

Stayed in a dog friendly cabin for two nights. Very clean, but also basic, as I thought I was getting a separate bedroom. We chose the worst possible week to stay in Mackay, as they were having a huge wet spell. Everything was wet, from getting out of the car up to the door,had to traverse a huge puddle of...

Family Big 4 caravan park with good facilities and entertainment for the kids ( pool, play area, ) BBQ and camp kitchen facilities. Plenty of cabins on site however the one we stayed in pretty small and tired. Overpriced for what you get compared to say some hotels of similar star rating.

While clean and tidy, the resort seemed to be in a somewhat desolate setting, with a swampy backdrop. However there are multiple pools, plus water park and water slide for the kids. The cabin was ill-equipped for the 4 adults staying in it. We were forced to eat all meals outside, away from the air conditioner in a humidity we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BIG4 Mackay Marine Tourist Park is just 2 kilometres from the beautiful Mackay Marina precinct with its lush parklands and selection of restaurants. Sit back and relax in our newly renovated park, or explore the great attractions the Mackay area has to offer - wonderful wildlife, beautiful beaches, breathtaking scenery, and exciting experiences both in and out of the water. We have done a lot of work on the park since taking over in 2010 adding new cabins and renovating older ones, adding a children's water park, jumping pillow and camp kitchen as well as a new office and rejuvenating the gardens and surrounds. We are now also proudly pet friendly so bring all your friends to visit us at BIG4 Mackay Marine Tourist Park. ... more   less
