Stayed in a cabin, quite small but full sized fridge which was a bonus, small table & chairs, microwave and stove top. Basic kitchenware, cutlery and plates etc. which you need to wash up so good idea to wash them again before you use them. No ensuite in our cabin but close to amenities block which was older style but...

Went into our cabin and no beds where made. Cockroaches everywhere. Air conditioner didn't work. Spending $139 for one night which I had to forfeit as there was no way I was staying there with my 3 kids. Owners/staff where very intimidating and short. The photos they have on their site look great but in reality the place was just...

Well where to start: Booking was made online with a third party 20 minutes before arriving, so had no chance to get the bunks made up, double bed made. More children arrived than was booked for. Paid $103.50 Air conditioner working perfectly. Did not speak to us about anything, except obtaining a refund for the second night saying a family...

We stayed here for a few nights and found it to be an excellent location - an easy walk to town, the marina, and the foreshore. The cabins were clean, comfortable and contained everything you needed for a pleasant stay. This is only the second place I have stayed where you are required to wash, dry and put away kitchen...

Decided to travel from our home in Hervey Bay up to Bowen as we have never been that far up in our caravan. The location of the park is excellent and the facilities are clean with some lovely shady spots away from the hot afternoon sun. It is within walking distance to the town with numerous eating houses and pubs....

I think this was the "most average" of all the parks we stayed at during our holiday. Staff were quite brusque and not really obliging. The park itself was immaculately clean, and very quiet. The site we were given was close to the amenities block, unfortunately, the dryers in that block weren't working so had to trudge to the other...

My parents and I stayed for 3 nights in one of the front cabins/villas. Our view was perfect and the caravan park is in a great position being only a short walk to town and right across from a lovely park with bbq facilities. Found to be reasonably priced with everything you need in a neat and tidy self contained...

Unfortunately we were given a caravan site that was so tight and too small for van. We could not put the awning out as no room to park the car. We had to park the car on the slab. Front site a lot better than back of park It's a pity the fees did not reflect . Don't have a...

We spent 2 nights at this tidy park that has drive through sites as well as cement slabs. With the Park attendant to guide you in to your site, it is situated across the road from the Harbor where seafood is available on the wharf.

Once we got to our site it was great if a little on the cramped side. However, as it is the busy season right now, we booked ahead. We got to the office to find they were not expecting us, didn't have our booking, tried to tell us that we had got mixed up with the other Top Tourist park...

Cute villa, everything you need in a small space, perfect for a longer stay. Cooking equipment, bedding and towels provided. Walking distance to town and one of the big mangos. Enjoyed the balcony for eating breakfast. We also took advantage of the bikes and kayaks available to hire. Bowen seems to be very popular with the grey nomads, we had...
