“Great location! Friendly staff. Lots of mosquitos.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We enjoyed our stay, great staff always had a smile always happy to help. Very close to IGA Supermarket, right across a Bistro Pub and bus stop is literally next to the park.

Downside is there were very few access to BBQ and half of the stoves provided aren't working! it would also be great if they provided fans in the "camp-o-tel" even in the kitchen just to help get rid of the flies and mosquitos. Very low signal and slow WiFi connection. Though you can connect to the hotel next door if you find it on your device password is mango123 (I don't know how long it will be available for).

Room Tip: Camp-o-tels are very close to the road so every walking by local cars passing by and screaming drunk...

My Girlfriend and I turned up out of the blue to this campsite late on one night after phoning to see if they had a space for our 7 mtr long camper van they said no problem, but the office would be closed and just to pop the cash in the box( which i thought was very trusting ) And i was told to watch out for the ROO's after dark on the road ( Never seen any alive but there was a few roadkill on the road !!) after we got set up which was easy on the site we had a look around it was great. it has lots of amenities all clean and well kept.
The next morning we were greeted with a little piece of heaven... we had breakfast with the birds (no seagulls here) cockatoos whistler ducks.... then we headed into Airlie beach which was a 15 minute walk from the Campsite
All the staff are friendly and attentive we made great friends at this campsite we were only going to stay for a night but ended staying 3 nights....
To sum up...
Friendly well kept value for money place to stay in Airlie beach which will leave you wanting to stay forever...

There was the heaven, very friendly people, only 15min walking distance to the town centre. Every day 4pm is the birds feed time, lots of parrots, ducks and a different kind of birds just eating food from your hands. Beautiful beach and Monday market (cheap) if you would like to buy a kangaroo hat like my boyfriend :) We will definitely back there again.

We were very pleased with all aspects of this park, The camp sites are a generous size with shelter. The amenities are well kept and roomy with a fresh feel and there are enough amenities to accommodate all patrons within the park.
We found the staff at the park to be very helpful and knowledgeable.
The park is well located near an Grocery store and a Tavern with a restaurant.
Our 2 Kids found the pool to be very refreshing and clean, and loved the Curlews.
We would highly recommend this park to all who pass this area and want to base themselves for the Whitsundays.
A very big thankyou to all the staff at the Gateway. Hope to see you again next time we pass.

Room Tip: We travel in a camper trailer we found the Unpowered sites to be well located away from the boundari...

We spent a few nights their and stored our motorhome for two nights while we were on a sail trip. The staff is friendly and competent, the location ok if your site is not at the major road.
The amenities are equipped with music but during our entire stay no cleaning took place when looking at the toilets despite the list with filled signs of staff to have done the cleaning job.

A great end point after a long northward trip. From the friendly staff to the excellent facilities, this park is a gem. Well set out with a great tropical ambience ,with the bonus of a nice mix of campers.
A pleasant walk to the township of Airlie.

We arrived in Airlie with no booking. We saw the sign on the Bruce Hwy for Island Gateway.

Upon arrival we were greeted with friendly service and expert advice.

The park is extremely well equipped. Our room had fantastic TV reception and the parking for my large boat was accommodated without question.

Within walking distance to the town of Airlie, and across the road from a tavern and supermarket, this park is very well situated. Dining option galore.

If you read my other reviews, you can see that I have stayed in an array of accommodation styles. Island Gateway is certainly value for money and we will be back!
