Beautiful place with great walks & views. Very remote & lots of wildlife & things to see. BUT the cabin we stayed in was not very clean & so was out friends cabin! A real shame because it really has put us off from coming back.

The park was able to cater for some larger vans and these sites were large and good. Sites were separated mostly by shrubbery and ours had a good view of the water between the trees. Camp facilities were quite acceptable however there is almost no phone or internet reception but this is available at nearby Seaforth where there is also...

We stayed here in July 2016 for a few nights. The tourist park is situated approximately 50klms from Mackay & major shops so good to make sure you have enough groceries for your stay. Basic things can be purchased at the Camp office. The camp site was good and nice to have trees and shrubbery for some privacy with neighbours....

We were in a caravan and the sites were good with shrubs and trees between most. Some sites were under trees. Facilities in ablutions block and laundry excellent even providing a laundry basket on wheels. A bonus were a couple of kangaroos grazing under the clothes line, too content even to stand up. The walks from the park are good...

We were lucky to get 2 adjoining powered sites at short notice in this beautul park. Right on the beach, shaded, with clean amenities and friendly staff. Having camped in the National Park previously we were dubious about camping in the caravan park... but it was great. The owners are trying hard to keep the place natural but to upgrade...

What a beautiful place to stay. In the National Park therefore everything is very pristine. Lovely atmosphere in the park. Nice, clean amenities, great staff. Beautiful walks along the beach and to the lookouts. At sunrise wallabies feed on the beach. Possibly to take great photos.

A beautiful beach and nature walks,amenities are old but clean. Sites are on the small side but have shrubbery between sites. The gardens could do with a tidy up with palm fronds,leaves etc scattered about.The kangaroos wandering in the park are lovely to see. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Booked for 3 nights stayed for 4. Serenity at its best. The park has everything you could want and the setting is just breath taking. Had made a booking over the phone but when we arrived it couldn't be found. Luckily we'd arrived early so were offered the very last powered site. It was perfect. The staff were very apologetic...
