We stayed here 3 nights as we had relatives we wanted to spend time with. On arrival the receptionist was very helpful and always was when we went into the office with any queries. The park is very quiet as not on a busy road but not much grass except on the footpath in front of the cabins that you...

Luke, receptionist was quite condescending. Facilities are old, showers small. Very few grass sites to use. No campsites have beach views. Camp kitchen good,shady and table and chairs. Across road from beach, but bit of a walk to be able to swim.500m.

We stayed in a standard cabin - queen bed only. We were very surprised by how clean and tidy (and relatively new) the cabin was. Nothing flash, but very comfortable. The grounds were clean and tidy with lovely lush green grass out the front. Reception was friendly and checking in and out was very easy. The location was handy for...

The park is situated on Millennium Esplanade which didn’t seem to be a busy road, no traffic hurtling by so a quiet stay is just about guaranteed. The greeting at reception for check-in, with Andy if I recall correctly, was a 10. Big call, but that’s what is was. I’ve experienced a zillion check-ins, well a lot anyway and this...

For a quiet spot out of the way, but still close enough to town for the essentials or pop down to the Surf Club for a meal & drinks. A kids playground & pool next to each other kept kids entertained for hours. The self contained cabins are spacious & tidy. Bed was comfortable & ample pillows to choose from....

Stayed one night with my adult daughter and our dog in a cabin. It was great that we were allowed to have the dog in the cabin with us which is not always easy to find. Great walks across the road to the beach. The staff were friendly on arrival and the park is very clean. The dog had to...

Very nice park with good facilities. The standout however, was Andy at reception. Talk about the right person in the right job. Professional, friendly, helpful, courteous and a great sense of humour. When you do a road trip you remember places but for me it's the people you meet who make a place great. You deserve a bonus Andy !!....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A quiet bushland setting with direct access to the golden sands of Tannum Beach and within walking distance of the picturesque seaside communities of Tannum Sands and Boyne Island is where you'll find Discovery Parks - Tannum Sands. Just 25km's south of Glandstone, Tannum Sands is tucked away from the hustle and bustle providing a sanctuary to escape the everyday and embrace a relaxed coastal lifestyle centred on the outdoors and marine pursuits. Our caravan park sits right on the innovative and eco-friendly Millennium Esplanade, an ideal place for picnics, barbeques and of course swimming. The waters at Tannum Beach are patrolled by lifesavers during Spring and Summer, providing a safe way to cool off and with only a small variation in water temperature during the year, you can take a dip virtually all year round. There's plenty to see and do at Tannum Sand and Boyne Island with cafes and shopping facilities plus a boat ramp, skate park and golf course to keep the whole family entertained. At the caravan park you'll find a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets and facilities including a resort style swimming pool, tennis court, BBQ's, camp kitchens and more . Come and take a break with Discovery Parks - Tannum Sands. ... more   less
