We arrived and were met by a very helpful member of staff. We then drove to our pitch and decided to leave immediately. The site was waterlogged and we were surrounded by some very dodgy looking caravans that looked like they had been there for years. The swimming pool looked as if the water was green. We left within minutes...

I cannot speak for the park but I can certainly speak for two of the female staff who were the rudish people I have ever encountered. We had been assured that if we were arriving beyond office hours that arrangements would be made. Upon phoning to make arrangements giving plenty of notice we were rudely informed not to come and...

Hi, I really do apologize for the behavior of the our caretaker, she has left our employment. I did try calling you a couple of weeks ago to let you know this and also about the refund to your account. Please do come and see me if you are in Cairns again i will look after you. Kind regards Mark.

We stayed one night to catch a tour that picked up from this site. The cabin was old and needed an up lift. We paid for four people and got bedding and towels for two. Required to pay extra for linen and towels. The paths are in disrepair and as it was raining mud puddles everywhere. On return from tour...

very very small cabin, no bench space at all, outdated plastic chairs, needs a good clean up, even the linen was very old, the position of this park suited us however we would not stay there again, price was ok.

What a great site. Mark & staff so very helpful with tours, recommendations etc. Amenities very clean and functional. We returned here after leaving the area for the Rainforest. Would recommend, especially for the ease to drive into Cairns

An average price camp, most sites were grassed with power and water and some had sullage points. Our allocated site was near the water way and walk way so we were having to put up with mosquitoes and noisy locals at night , so not so good. the amenities were ok , clean and plenty of hot water. Would stay...

We stayed here for 2 nights purely because we had already paid for it. The staff seemed friendly enough but the sites are quite small, we felt like sardines in a can. There were a lot of rude backpackers who walked through your site constantly & left their rubbish everywhere when we stayed, which made the experience even less enjoyable....

We had a powered tent site, you are packed in like sardines and there were to many backpackers which some were very rude. We're at the big 4 coconut it's incredibly best caravan park in history. I highly recommend to avoid this park.

Owners of park would not know who you are as they never walk around and say hi. It is noisy at night from locals. They shoot marbles over the fence at the birds and yourself if in the way. The bus was handy, the hotel over the road had good meals and there is a major shopping centre within walking...

This park is very clean and tidy. The staff are helpful and can organise visits to local attractions at no extra charge. Travel to the city of Cairns is as easy as a half kilometre walk to the bus stop, there are five bus routes that pass so you don't have to wait long. Much easier than driving and trying...
