BIG4 Cairns Crystal Cascades Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 October 2017

This was our second stay at the Big 4 Crystal Cascades. Our first stay in 2013 which we enjoyed so much, so when coming again to Cairns we decided "when you are on to a good thing stick to it"
We were not disappointed. Driving up, a friendly face welcomed us, and listened attentively while retrieving our booking. Allocated our 2 bedroom cabin, close enough to the pool, amenity block for the laundry.
Quiet comfortable 2 bedroom cabin, with everything we needed. As we were going out everyday, Redlynch is close enough to go North, down to the city (20 mins) or to our favorite club, (Brothers Leagues Club - separate review). Easy access to get up to Kuranda, Atherton Tablelands, and easy to see my brother in law in Tolga. Easy access to Redlynch Shopping Complex with Coles, Woolworths ATM chemist etc.
Opening our fridge we had a small amount of milk and a packet Chocolate Mint biscuits!
The cabin fully self contained, did not need to bring anything of substance.
Would if we were going to go to Cairns again, would would not even consider any where else.

Room Tip: Quiet location

Simply beautiful views. Five star ammenities.Friendly helpful staff. The best accommodation Cairns has to offer. Seriously. The best. Great kitchen, very clean and maintained regularly throughout the day. Has a warm welcoming atmosphere throughout. Beautiful views of nature in a peaceful place. At night you can listen to the wildlife. Very calming.Different BBQ areas also to feel like you are dining elsewhere. The shower block was the best. Like a beach resort. And so clean. Just like mumsIn a beautiful area of Cairns away from all the mayhem, I was so relaxed here.
Anyone who visits Cairs must stay here. Number 1. Like a retreat

Room Tip: I'm not sure on the rooms, but the camping is fantastic. More comfortable than that. Luxury camp...

We were tripping up north for the long weekend with a one night stay in Cairns and one on the way home to Townsville. After leaving it to the last minute and a lot of searching we were fortunate to get a 'Sunbird' cabin at the Crystal Cascades Holiday Park. Its been many year since we stayed at a camping ground and after this trip we might try a few more. Although the units are not cheap they are pretty good with a double bed, kitchenette and ensuite. The park itself is what made the stay great with a setting amongst the rainforest hills of Redlynch. A beautifully quite holiday park out from the hustle bustle of the other camps in town. We would stay here again.

AlsoWhat an amazing place to stay. Booked in for a week, stayed eight. Fantastic pool. Amazingly lean amenities. Friendly staff. Thank you Corinne for your assistance with our repetitive extensions. From car problems, to medical necessities. The views from the park of the mountains, the horses, the whole ambiance was incredible. Loved it. Management and staff are great. Amanitites are spotless. Great pool. Though, sadly at times, parents leave their offspring in the pool to scream and shout, regardless of others. Also, smokers are inclined to empty their ashtrays in to the garbage bins. Only complaint, not enough bins. Too same, too few.

Room Tip: It is a caravan, cabin resort. No hotel.

What a gem the park is spotless and neat , the toilets and the showers blocks has been recentley renovated and always kept clean , the sites are levels with a concrete slap on each site , the pool is under shade and a nice spot to cool down , it’s quite away from the road traffic and it’s only 5km from the cascades and few Km from Coles , a big thanks to Lonny for his help in fixing my van window , if there is a 10 stars I would give it but any away I am going to give it 11 stars , highly recommend will be back for sure .
