Camp in the Middle of a Turtle Sanctuary in Cairns

Camp in the Middle of a Turtle Sanctuary in Cairns

For a little peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Cairns City, camp in the middle of a turtle sanctuary at Tasman Holiday Parks – Cairns Cool Waters. You can get a closer look as well as feed these little critters all within this tropical holiday park. It’s no wonder the turtles (and humans) love this little slice of heaven surrounded by a natural freshwater creek – it’s the perfect tropical getaway. Set up camp with the turtles on the banks of the freshwater creek. With mountains and rainforest trees as you’re backdrop, it’s not a bad place to camp. It’s away from any main roads so you can kick back, relax, and enjoy the sounds of nature.

You will find Tasman Holiday Parks – Cairns Cool Waters just seven kilometres from the centre of Cairns, on the banks of Freshwater Creek in Brinsmead, Cairns. It’s a grassy, well-manicured, and comfortable Cairns caravan park with a wide range of facilities on site. Other than the turtle sanctuary, you will find a saltwater pool and spa, scenic barbeque area, playground, indoor recreation room and camp kitchen. You will have all you need and more within this beautiful tropical setting.

Turtles aren’t the only wildlife you will see here. There is an abundance of wildlife including freshwater turtles, over 50 species of birds and platypus. The best place to spot some local wildlife is on the Rainforest Creek walk that begins at this QLD caravan park. You can walk or cycle the trails finishing off with a swim in the refreshingly cool waters of the creek.

With so much to do at Tasman Holiday Parks – Cairns Cool Waters you could just hang with your turtle mates, or you could venture out and explore. This holiday park is conveniently located close to many local attractions including the Skyway Rainforest Cableway. Descend through the canopy of one of the world’s most ancient rainforests until you reach the village of Kuranda. You’re also close to Cairns Esplanade where you can take a walk, stop for a picnic, or take a dip in the lagoon. There are plenty of places to dine in the centre of Cairns, and of course what’s a trip to Cairns without visiting the Great Barrier Reef?
