Panorama Image - Caravan blog

What a great spot. Beachfront slabbed caravan site right in the middle of town.

Time to relax and enjoy the luxury before heading inland/north next week.

Day 4 (Tue)

  • arrived - short 40 min drive from glass house mtns
  • drove through mooloolaba esplanade with our big rig, few tight squeezes but got in ok
  • oh that is until we pulled into the caravan park entrance (bending down hill road) and were presented with a sign saying "New guests: Please checkin at our office 1km south". well! this was fun, reversing a van up a hill around a bend into oncoming traffic with other guests waiting to get past us. mission! made it to their office, checked in, got our keys and we were right
  • our first slab site. interesting reversing experience. Hayley got her lefts and rights mixed up but we got in eventually. Only 20cm away from the slab - pretty good for our first one. The annex goes up nicely and blocks the afternoon breeze off the ocean.

Day 5 (Wed)

  • Saw the sunrise, gorgeous.
  • Went for a bike ride and got lost, fun times.
  • Found a bakery and 7/11 on the way back, picked up some fresh bread, juice and milk.

Location

  • Close to esplanade, shops, cafes, surf club and beach!
  • Checkin at the other park before coming here!
  • The beach is a "loud" beach, as there are rocks along most of the shoreline. That combined with the occasional road noise probably doesn't make this the quietest park around. 
  • Washing machines are $4 per load
  • Dryers are $2 per 20 minutes. 
  • Change available at other office 1km south.
  • Dump point near toilets
  • $50 deposit on the key / gate buzzer
  • Ring to double check booking, a few people had been double booked and had to stay elsewhere.
