BIG4 Ayr Silver Link Caravan Village     Read more ...

Ayr is a lovely looking town about 88 kilometres south of Townsville as you travel along the Bruce Highway in Queensland. This is a big sugar cane and fruit growing area that attracts a range of seasonal workers. The BIG4 Silver Link Caravan Village, Ayr, is conveniently located off the main road with a range of accommodation options for holiday makers and backpackers looking for work. I understand they can even organise bus transport to and from farms in the area.  

You cannot miss this BIG4 park with a silver link train (model of course) sitting above the entrance. This is an older looking park and we found the staff to be very welcoming, and the cabins to be very clean with air-conditioning to cope with hot Queensland weather.  

On site accommodation options include - one or two bedroom villas, deluxe villas, and disabled cabins with wheel chair access via a ramp running along the side of the cabin for easy access. One of the cabins contained something I had never seen before - a double bunk bed sleeping up to 4 people. 
The BIG4 Silver Link Caravan Village Ayr has a range of facilities including camp kitchen, swimming pool, children's playground, Kiosk, barbeques, dump point, plus caravan and camping sites (some drive through).

Burdekin Cascades Caravan Park     Read more ...

Burdekin Cascade Caravan Park is a council owned park in the middle of downtown Ayr, Queensland - in the Burdekin district. We were driving along the main street of town when we were drawn by the gardens and well maintained grassed areas near the entrance to the park.  We called in for a look around and were warmly greeted by Sandy who was relieving the managers for a short while. We booked for one night and ended up staying four. 

The Burdekin Cascades Caravan Park has plenty of large trees that provide shade and maintain an abundance of bird life.  We had a family of finches nesting in the tree above our site - just beautiful watching the parents feed their babies who were just learning to fly. 

The amenities are ensuite style unsiex bathrooms with toilet, shower and hand basin.-very clean. This is a relatively quiet park within walking distance to shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and the Visitor Information Centre. We found this park very relaxing and friendly.

You can recognise this park as you drive along the main street with the water features cascading  over the rock wall leading to the entrance.  This is a well maintained park with a dump point located near the reception area, sealed roads and easy access to sites.

Cabins along the pool side of the park have shaded carports and are air conditioned to cope with the heat in northern Queensland. In fact those staying at the park and given free access to the public pool.

We would not hesitate to stay at the Burdekin Cascades Caravan Park during our next visit to Ayr and will recommend it to all our friends travelling in Norther Queensland.
