“Idyllic location on waterfront”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

This caravan park is ideally situated 5mins drive from retail centre which has a Woolworth's. It is also a 5mins drive (or pleasant walk through oceanfront parkland) to the idyllic Horseshoe Bay which is a great spot for snorkeling to view coral and fish, or to swim and relax on the beach. The golf course is about 150m from the caravan park and guests meet out the front most mornings for an early 9 holes, comps including for Vets are also available. Two nearby bowls clubs offer social bowls most days. The caravan park is a well managed friendly family business. It is neat and tidy with a grassed area at oceanfront to relax and watch the ocean at sunset. Powered sites including some with ensuites (our preference) and cabins for those who don't like to tow a van

Stayed September 2012, travelled as a couple

We can't wait to return each year to Tropical Beach. Ernie & Morag are top hosts and the friendship extended to us by fellow caravanners is remarkable. The area has so much to offer. The park is right on the water. Truly everything a caravanner needs and they welcome man's best friend. No need to travel overseas to find paradise.

This year will be our ninth stay at the wonderful Tropical Beach Caravan Park, and we have made many new friends here. The owners cannot be more welcoming and run their park very efficiently. Nothing is too much trouble for them, including Joe handing the car keys to Ernie to park our van for us! The amenities are old, but very clean. The view from the front beach is fabulous and a grassed area around the bbq's (free), a social hub if you are looking for company or spotting whales, turtles and dolphins etc. Beach walking, golf, bowls, and snorkling close by are real attractions. Counting the days till we get back!

We also love Tropical Beach CP for the location, the good company in the park, the winter weather (apart from the odd windy day) and the quietness of the park. Many other caravan parks have a no-noise policy after 10.00 pm but do not seem to enforce it.
The park is showing its age but is kept spotlessly clean (both the amenities and the surrounds). We have been at Tropical Beach for the last 7 winters and hope to continue to do so for many more years

We go to Tropical Beach for three months every winter with our caravan and book an en-suite site. Love this park right on the beach and 200 metres from a great little nine hole golf course. Very friendly family owned and operated park. Weather is beautiful during the winter months
averaging 27 degrees and very little if any rain. Great comraderie amongst the holiday makers
with Golf and Bowls competitions and many meals organised as well as drinks everday.Looking forward to going back this year.

WE discovered Tropical Beach Caravan Park five years ago and boy were we lucky. We are fortunate enough to stay in the park for 5 months. The Parker family are very friendly and professional and run a well organised park. A lot of people spend a lot of time in the park during the winter months, everyone is very friendly and make new travellers very welcome. We all have a great happy hour on a beautiful lawned area over looking the sea most evenings and everyone is made very welcome. Bowen is a great place catering golf (which is within walking distance of park) bowls, swimming and good fishing. We hope to be going back for years to come. Also the park is pet friendly with is great as we travel with our small dog.

This May will be our 4th stay at the Tropical Beach Park , we have always found the staff and management both frendly and helpfull. Although the toilets and showers are old they are very clean and tidy.We are grey nomades and have seen a number of van parkes in North Qld none with what Tropical Beach can offer with excellent fishing,boating,swimming and only 200 meters from the golf course.
The town fok of Bowen are very frendley and make you feel at home.

Room Tip: Any of the units along the foreshore are excellent
