Had a few days in Mackay as part of a family roadtrip in early Aug.
Its located on the main road to the port, so some heavy truck traffic does pass the park.
We stayed in a cabin, these are all located near the main road, so you will get some road noise.
The cabin we were in was clean, but not very new, some signs of wear and tear. Parents get their own room, kids bunk in the main room/kitchen.
We self catered in the room one night and the kitchen did its job well. There is a separate BBQ/outdoor kitchen that looked clean and well kept. The laundry facilities were also good
The park looks to get a fair bit of mining/industrial guests, it appears as historically they have not been focused on the family traveller .. But it looks like things are changing.
The kids loved the jumping pillow and the mini-golf course. The park was renovating its pool and building a kids 'water park' with water slide.
Some landscaping and land clearing occurring, hopefully some larger and newer cabins are on the way...
We did check out the other park in town, the cabins were smaller and didn't work as well for our kids.
