Bedrock Village     Read more ...

The Bedrock Village Caravan Park and Tours is located in the small historic town of Mount Surprise. We had been told that this park was created in a unique way and we wanted to call in and have a look for ourselves. Joe and Jo Lockyer designed and built this park in 1998 on a nine acre bush block - what a great place to base yourself and explore the area. In this region you can visit cattle stations, gorges, see the Savannahlander train, visit the Undara Lava Tubes or go fossicking for gemstones. The Bedrock Village run a variety of tours.

Great facilities provided at the Bedrock Village:

  • drive-through sites separated by bushes and trees - very private with easy access - these sites looked great with lots of shade.
  • grassy tent sites
  • mini golf
  • salt water pool
  • onsite mechanic
  • pet minding
  • a large range of cabins - air-conditioned - one with wheel chair access 
  • free internet
  • two camp kitchens
  • very clean amenities - disabled facilities - laundry
  • Air conditioned conference centre
  • Campfire pit
  • Bush walks

We enjoyed a hamburger for lunch before walking around the village to take photos - this park is very welcoming. During the tourist season they offer affordable homemade evening meals if you would like a night away from cooking - these are served in the outdoor dining area. The shop sells some groceries and has a range of souvenirs and local artwork, as well as a book exchange area. The dump point is located in Mount Surprise.

Mount Surprise Tourist Park Motel     Read more ...

Mount Surprise Tourist Van Park Motel & BP Roadhouse is located on the Gulf Development Road (Garland Street) as you drive through Mount Surprise. It is across the road from the railway station which makes it a convenient place to stay if you arrive by train.

The Tourist Park offers motel style accommodation as well as powered and un-powered caravan and camping sites. There is plenty of shade around the park and a swimming pool for a cool dip. The Roadhouse is open seven days a week and has a licensed cafe and restaurant, or you can use the camp kitchen. I had to laugh at one sign out the front - “Burgers the way they used to be, before they stuffed them up.... “
