Australia is by far one of the most adventurous places on earth. From tropical islands to coral reefs to rainforests, exploring this country has endless possibilities.
For those travelling to explore this destination, proper lodging is crucial. This is especially true for those wanting to feel a part of that great outdoors atmosphere.
Caravan parks are one of the most fascinating accommodation options and often the most popular. They often feature slabs for guests to bring their own caravans or cabins as another option for a camping-type accommodation.
Hervey Bay Holiday Parks
Discovery Parks is a chain of caravan and holiday parks throughout Australia. Even though they are a chain company, each location has its own charm and atmosphere to give a different experience at each one.
This is exciting for those who want to caravan around to various places. Exploring Australia isn’t limited to the naturalistic side of it, the caravan parks or hotels and motels are a part of the adventure as well!
This caravan park is right in Hervey Bay which is on the eastern coast of Australia in Queensland. It strives to give guests ample opportunity to have freedom in their lodging choice.
From cabins to powered sites, everyone looking for their outdoor adventure can be accommodated! The park itself is also gorgeous by being surrounded by various tropical trees and plant life.
- Kiosk/Store – Easy access to simple necessities is a great perk at this caravan park!
- Swimming pool – Beach swimming is fun but some people prefer the cool waters of a swimming pool. Not all caravan parks feature a pool, so this is a huge benefit!
- Activities room – The activities room is great for families with children to help keep them entertained. It is also a great place to mingle with other travellers.
Usually, caravan parks aren’t always awarded the same star rating as hotels, motels, or resorts. Discovery Parks locations do indicate an overall star rating on Google, coming in at a 4-star facility.
The star rating that is given to lodging places is primarily based on the quality of the facilities offered over the quantity. This particular caravan park has stylish cabins, the swimming pool, and little store on site. These accommodations help that overall rating.
Another aspect to consider when examining the rating is guest ratings. As always, these ratings should be assessed with common sense in mind. Google users (about 175) rate the park 4.2 stars out of 5 stars. The reviews mostly speak of the friendly staff, amenities, pool, and cabins as being the most favoured.
The cabins at the Discovery Parks Boat Harbour Drive location are incredibly favoured. There are five cabin types to choose from as well as powered sites and ensuite powered sites.
