Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The camp kitchen was not clean. Not once in the time we were there had the camp kitchen been cleaned. A female staff was rude. First night we had a cold shower because they ran out of gas.

Disliked: Cleanliness
Loved the whole glamping concept however tents need a good clean and communal kitchen also needed a good clean. Loved the visit from the kookaburras and also Roxy the dog. The layout of each tent was good, very private.

Escape the fake
An amazing place. Highly recommend staying here. Staff were friendly and helpful. Camp kitchen was well stocked with everything you'd need. Shop next door 👍 Best of all, it was really close to the beach and Bulwer wrecks for a swim or snorkel. For a super quiet and relaxing stay, close to Brisbane, escape the fake.
