“Concerns”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We stayed at Cable Beach Caravan Park on the recommendation of a c fiend who stays there every year for about five months of the year. We booked in Sunday 15 Sept 2013 and departed. Oct 2013.
Pool area of park fabulous. Most unexpected and welcome. Ablutions always clean and site shade g.
HOWEVER it would seem it is a common occurrence that vans are burgled and at checkin it is not emphasised or discussed. Agreed, it is an 'open' park however whilst we were there we, plus five others, were victims of theft. So brazen that in fact in two instances the owner was INSIDE the van at the time: one taking a nap and the burglar actually entered the van and the other happened to see a black arm and hand come through the cut flyscreen and steal the wallet beside the bed. The owner reacted of course but the budglar was Gone, melting imto the darkness. Luckily the wallet was found next day in the bush at the side of the park with cards still in it.
In our case at sunset, our 4x4 was entered and a bag of change taken out of the consul. Nothng else thank goodness although valuable cameras were in there. They climbed in through the tailgate which was open because my husband had the engel plugged in to charge.
We had been alerted by our friends to locking our van up even when going next door for a drink as it has happened many many times in the past.
The police obviously were called but of course no action can be taken. Our bag of money we found by the fence at the back of the van as my partner went outside again (he'd only been inside for ten minutes) and obviously disturbed them so that they dropped the bag whilst leaping the rickety old fence which passes as the boundary between the park and vacant lot.

So BE AWARE!!!!! Lock your van every time you leave it and that means ALL WINDOWS as well!!!!!!

On arrival in Broome we located this caravan park by chance. From the first contact it was evident that this is a good place to stay. The setting is lovely with plenty of shaded areas and an absolutely fantastic swimming pool. With the days reaching close to 40 degrees the afternoons were spent wallowing in the pool to keep cool, one or two hours meant that we looked like shrivelled prunes but who cares. The area is abundant with bars and eateries but the prices and service in most of them is well over the top and very poor .Also Broome is not pet friendly with us having to kennel our dog for the week which was an extra expense.

It is a great caravan park, especially when you drove through NT to the Kimberly area. Here, finally, a normal living condition. No more bugs, no more high temperature, and no more wild animals.

The caravan park is really close to the world famous beach - Cable Beach. And the park is full of shades, which makes the sites very cool. Kitchen and bathroom is good. The only disadvantage is the two fridges always full, not enough rooms.

The site is not covered by grassed. And the price is not cheap, but for the location and living quality, it is worthy.

We arrived without a booking and were met by one of the most helpful hosts we have met. She put us on a great shady site near the pool. Our van is 24ft long and we easily fitted onto the site - with awning out and we also set up a tent for our daughter. The location is fab - close to the beach. The park is very quiet so may have a different vibe in the high season, but we are very happy with our choice. The amenities are clean and adequate.

PS: The pool is awesome!

We are currently into our third week at the Cable Beach Caravan Park, and loving it. Upon our arrival I was greeted by Bindi and Margie, 2 of the funniest, friendliest, most helpful people we have encountered so far on our trip. We hadn't made a booking but were lucky enough to get a great site, with plenty of shade. We had been told the sites were small, but we found that was not the case. We have a 27ft Fifth Wheeler, which has a slide one side and an awning on the other side, the site is more than big enough to accommodate it, as well as room to park the car comfortably. The pool is beautiful, I've only been to one amenities block and although it could do with a bit of a face lift, I've found it always to be clean. It's a short walk to beautiful cable beach, and if you want to do some shopping, there is a bus stop out the front which takes you into town.

The location was great, only a short walk from the beach. The sites were very well shaded but sadly were dirt. The park was huge and for some reason everyone is packed in tight. The sites aren't big at all! The pool is great, it had a waterfall and was huge!

Room Tip: If you don't plan to go to the Broome Cup (horse races) then don't go on that weekend. It is...

We arrived in Broome without a booking and the friendly man at reception gave us a site for 4 nights - completely shaded by beautiful trees, as are nearly all of the sites at this large park. The amenities were good but could do with an upgrade. The pool was huge and relaxing and to top it off, a short walk to beautiful Cable Beach. Will recommend to friends and fellow caravanners.
