For a Superior studio unit I was expecting a kitchen sink at least, and the bed didnt look like a queen, but overall, we enjoyed our visit. The staff were very friendly

I loved the freedom of coming and going without the hassle of limited parking as we had our very own.... It would be handy to have a larger outdoor bin to ensure the inside bin is not overflowing especially for those coming for more than a day

Water park was great. Cabin was too small for its price. Bathroom tiny and no bench. Bunk beds too small for 10 year old, need a warning for newcomers.

G’day Michael, thanks for taking the time to provide your comments. We’re happy to read you liked your stay with us at Discovery Parks Rockhampton but we are sorry that the price you paid fell short of your expectations and the bunks were not suitable for the size/age of your children. We have reviewed the wording of this cabin type on Expedia and will make the relevant changes so thank you for bringing this to our attention. In future, if you have any troubles while staying with us, please know you can chat with our friendly team at reception. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Kind Regards, the Discovery Parks team.
