“Pet Friendly”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I was driving from Sydney to Weipa FNQ with my two dogs, I stayed here my second night room was clean and bigger than I expected, luckily I had some sheets of wire with me and I was able to have the dogs on the verandah with their beds as I made a gate so they couldn't get off. They charge to have dogs on verandah the cost is $10 per dog I also had dog runs for them to put in the ground which I set up so they could go to the toilet. One thing a lot of mozzies and midges take lots of spray.

Finding it hard to relate "Really Disappointed's" review to the Windmill Caravan Park in Hervey Bay that we have stayed in each winter for more than 10 years. We have never had a "bad" stay. We travel with 2 little dogs & Mark & Corina always make us so welcome that it's like coming to a 2nd home. Nothing is too much trouble & help & information given when needed. We can't fault the amenities block that we use (the small one) & why should the age of the cleaners be an issue??? Surely the owners are entitiled to some parking space for their visitors???We have a site close by a "Permanent" resident & have not found any problem at all with untidiness etc. As for parking, if campers align their vehicles properly & considerately there should be no issue. It certainly is a prime location for walking our dogs, shopping & dining out. All in all A Great Place to Stay. We are booked again for 2014 & will continue as long as we are able. Thank you Mark & Corina.

We have stayed at the Windmill Caravan Park 5 times over the last few years and have booked yet again for March this year. We find everything about the place gives us the holiday break we are looking for with excellent position to Beach and pier, good local shopping and quiet peaceful surrounds. Our cabin accomodation is ideal, clean, very comfortable pet friendly and virtually a home from home. We get good advice from the owners who run the place, as to which are the best tours, restaurants etc. and where and when we can walk our dog at the beaches etc. We have met some great people at the park from around the world making our holidays just great.

I found the comments from travelling family in Dec 2013 Christmas time in their posted comments about the Windmill Caravan Park & Management very disturbing, reference to vehicle parking, cleanliness, rubbish, just to add a few from his or her comments. Also the comments about Management with a bad attitude, I find all comments a load of rubbish and incorrect. Question to complainer, were you referring to the right caravan park?. We have been coming to Windmill Hervey Bay for many years with our dog and caravan, and found management, & staff above and beyond helpful, and the park is run as a family business. As to the Park, it is quite up to standard compared to many parks visited down south. Sounds like this person should stay at home if they pass on incorrect information as to this trip advisor info. It sounds like a personal conflict with an attitude with themselves with management as to their dislike, get it right next time guys, & don't publish incorrect information. I am too a trip advisor member, and will put down without hesitation any location not suitable and will state it in publication, but it will be correct info and for the right reasons. Kind Regards and safe travels to all. Gordon.

The best caravan park my partner and I have stayed at. We have stayed at the Windmill Caravan Park different times throughout the years and each visit is better than the last. The cabins are delightful and very clean. The caravan park is well situated near the beach, restaurants, and a shopping center. We love the fact the park is pet friendly, yet still maintains a high level of cleanliness and high up keep. The amazing friendly staff have helped us organize whale watching cruises and various other activities for our stay in Hervey Bay.

Just been to stay at the park and found it to me very disappointing it was great for the fact that you could take your dogs but that was about it. The manager was a pain as he didn't bother to have spaces marked clearly and was constantly getting people to move cars around. His own vistors just parked in front of the entrance of the games room and rhe other at the garage door on the main driveway which also clearly was not a parking space just something else to try and get around but rhat was ok for the rest of the paying guests. Xmas morning yet again came out to whinge about parking instead of emptying the overflowing smelly bins still ok parking for his vistors. The bathrooms didnt smell like the were cleaned again till after boxing day by some older lady. The doors didnt even close as you went into the main door of the bathroom as the doors needed adjusting Yet boxing day he comes out to put his old seafood scraps in the park bins. He seemed not to be the right sort of person to be running a caravan park he obviously cares more about the permanent tenants as some of them really need to be told to have a clean up on their sites as it brings the tone of the park even more down. It was a real shame as the area was great beautiful beaches great town he would have a great park if he cared about it someone should have told him you need a personality for that sort if job. We ended up leaving a day early all the new people coming were complaining about him and the place and we had enough. Management if you don't like talking nicely and dont like people get out now and sell to someone who cares you are luvky to live in such a nice place.
