Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort is amazing! We stayed with our caravan for 7 nights and we absolutely loved it. So much more than just a caravan park, Cairns Coconut Resort is the ultimate. It’s a caravan park on steroids!
We’ve stayed in hundreds of caravan parks over the years and I have to say Cairns Coconut Resort has to be No.1. We stayed there for a bit of treat for the kids during Our Aussie Adventure, having heard about the amazing facilities and kids activities on offer, and let me tell you, it was well worth it!
The moment you drive in to the 28 acre immaculate grounds, dotted with palm trees and lush gardens, it feels like you have entered your own private tropical oasis. The atmosphere is amazing, a special place full of fun, sun and excitement everywhere you look.
The resort has such a long list of facilities and activities. With a multitude of kids play areas and adventure playgrounds, the largest jumping pillow in the Southern Hemisphere, two huge resort-style pools and Splash Waterpark, there is always something for the kids to do.
And the list goes on, and on:
– Multiple waterslides – Spas – Kids wading pool
– Free Wi-fi – Mini-mart – Camp kitchen
– Barbeques – Water-aerobics – Full Gymnasium
– Courtesy bus – NEOS interactive play hub
– Beach volleyball – Badminton – Snorkelling Lessons
– Pedal carts – Outdoor Cinema – Tennis
– Mini-golf – TV/movie room – Laundromat
Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort offers a full range of accommodation from large family condos, various villas and spa-villas, en-suite cabins, budget cabins and a variety of caravan/camping site options including super en-suite, en-suite, powered slab, powered and non-powered sites. We stayed with our 26″ caravan on a powered slab site which cost around $70 per night (including all kids). This is a bit above average for our usual caravanning budget but was well worth the extra for all the park has to offer. For the kids it was like staying in a theme park with so many exciting things to do!
We were all so excited to arrive and while Dad set up the caravan all the kids headed off to check out all the amazing playgrounds and pool areas on their scooters.
We were lucky to have arrived the night before ‘Free Pancake Thursday’, a free pancake breakfast for all the guests, served at the garden pool.
After breakfast we enjoyed playing in one of the nearby paddling pools before the older kids headed off on their scooters. There was always lots of other kids around the park and our kids had a great time making lots of new friends during our stay.
We spent the rest of the week at the resort, only heading in to Cairns (a 7 minute drive away) a few times, as there was just so much to do in the park and the kids were so happy with all the different activities. There was mini-golf, NEOS interactive play hub, Coconut’s fire-engine rides, adventure playgrounds and giant jumping pillows on constant rotation, as well as nightly movies at the outdoor cinema!
Then there are the amazing pools and water play areas. The Sun Lagoon Pool, which we visited daily, is great for the whole family, with shallow areas for the little ones and a whale water-slide, as well as large swimming areas and hot and cold spas.
Splash Waterpark was another daily activity for us. A full size kids water park with multiple slides, water guns and a large tipping bucket at the top, the kids loved it!
The Garden Pool was great for a nice relaxing swim in the surrounds of the tropical gardens and palm trees, and on one visit we were lucky to be invited to join in a free snorkelling lesson.
We had such a memorable stay at Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort. It certainly is the ‘Rolls Royce’ of caravan parks. It’s not only a great place to stay if you’re caravanning, but a top option for anyone travelling to Cairns, offering a wide range of resort accommodation.
