BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort     Read more ...

The BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort is a large and beautiful caravan park on Shute Harbour Road, as you head towards Airlie Beach. There is a lagoon style pool with two water slides which is great for the children, and I understand a new water park is being constructed. Other activities include tennis, mini golf, jumping pillows, volley ball etc. It looks absolutely amazing with wonderful tropical gardens - very welcoming. 

Other features of the BIG4 resort area:

  • camp kitchen which is well equipped with stainless steel benches - plenty of seating
  • caravan and camp sites of various sizes and shapes - concrete slab or fully grassed - some sites are divided by tropical gardens for privacy
  • large range of accommodation options - budget studio cabins, two bedroom cabins or three bedroom condos - all very clean and beautifully decorated. Most cabins have a parking space big enough for car and boat.
  • kids club
  • clean amenities with hair dryer - disabled facilities
  • shop selling grocery items and toiletries as well as souvenirs. They even provide a tour booking service
  • barbeques located around the park.

This park looks quite amazing and is really well maintained - very neat and tidy. It has lots to offer and I would not hesitate to stay here on our next trip to beautiful Airlie Beach. The RvTrips team would like to head back to North Queensland very soon. 

The BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort goes the extra mile and provides a storage area at the rear of the park for cars and or caravans when visitors want to spend a few days boating around the Whitsundays or staying on Hamilton Island. The Palm Room behind the immaculate reception area and gardens is available for conferences, weddings, family reunions etc (with the park able to accommodate all guests). During our recent visit to the park a mobile outlet was selling coffee, homemade pies and juices - very convenient.

Seabreeze Tourist Park     Read more ...

This was our first visit to Airlie Beach and we stayed at the Seabreeze Tourist Park - a Top Tourist Park located on Shute Harbour Road. This is a small friendly park and is located within walking distance of the Whitsunday Shopping Centre - Coles supermarket, chemist, bank, post office, Bucks Seafood and a variety of specialty shops. The reception area is large and welcoming - a great range of brochures on the area and the staff are happy to book any tours for you. We booked several tours during our stay and each company picked us up from the front of the caravan park which was very convenient.

Facilities include:

  • NEW Swimming Pool - this was being built during our stay at Seabreeze and I think it is a great addition to this lovely park
  • free wifi
  • Long term stays welcome
  • Dump Point
  • very clean amenities and laundry facilities
  • pet friendly with dog minding available nearby when out on a tour
  • powered caravan and campervan sites - some are Big Rig friendly with help to park if required
  • unpowered Camping area
  • self contained Cabins, Bali villas and two bedroom Bungalows 
  • fully equipped Camp Kitchen
  • storage available for boats, caravans and cars - in case you want to cruise around the Whitsunday Islands 

We loved the new amenities block which is an hexagonal shaped building with individual ensuite type bathrooms opening to the outside - great if travelling with someone needing assistance or disabled visitors. These are very well designed and easy to mop out after you shower. 

It is easy to access to the Airlie Beach Boardwalk (Bicentennial Walkway) from the caravan park and we cycled along this path several times - following the water into Airlie Beach. Banjos Bar and Bistro is located in front of the shopping centre and is a great place to go for meals - they have various specials throughout the week including two meals for the price of one available some nights.

Across the road from Seabreeze Tourist Park you will have access to - the ocean (swimming enclosure and fishing), undercover skate park, basketball court and a boat ramp - Abell Point Marina is only a short walk from the entrance. We originally booked at the Seabreeze Tourist park for two nights and ended up staying ten - we would be very happy to stay at this park again.
