I, like many travellers have ventured up and down the east coast of Australia. Like many, I only slept in my tent.
When I arrived in the northern tropical hub of Cairns, I wanted to camp somewhere safe and close to the city centre. I opted for Cairns Holiday Park at it was situated just 3 km's from the busy centre, and very close to bus stops.
Upon arrival, I was greeted by extremely friendly staff members in a large reception which also acted as a tour guides office with many trips and recommendations. Whilst taking my booking, I was given my own bag full of maps, flyers and useful information about Cairns and surrounding areas. There was also a very fairly priced shop with a great selection of foods and drinks.
The gardens and layout are beautiful, with lots of trees and nice plants. I was booked into the camp area, which had lots of space and was never over crowded as management respect you need your space.
The outdoor camp kitchen is the biggest id ever seen with many tables, barbecues/cooking hobs and fridges. It is very clean and there were very few bugs compared with other places I stayed. Also there was a free goodies shelf where people would leave camping equipment and food for others to take.
The showers and toilets were modern and cleaned everyday. The water was always hot and the water pressure decent.
I stayed for 2 months as I loved Cairns. Lots of young vibrant people camped there too along with the older people in campervans who always said they never wanted to leave.
kitchen area lights went out at ten with the area to be cleared after 11 and there was a security guy there so never any trouble or excess noise at night. The tv room was available all night however.
Would definitely stay again.
