Cheery Nomads – from $10pn – Maryborough – Queensland

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Marry Poppins fans will totally understand why this grown woman had to stop and visit Maryborough. This is the birth place of author Pamela Lyndon Travers and home to Marry Poppins traffic lights. Yes, you read that right “Traffic lights” :oD

OK to the camp site…

Cheery Nomads

Cheery Nomads is a small Kui park that has sites with power and water but also a large grass paddock out the back for fully self contained vans.

We chose to stay in this area as it was only $10 per night and we had everything we could need. We had so much more room around us compared to the power and water sites.

The rain made parts of the park a bit soggy but I’m sure in the summer months the park would look as lush as our big paddock.

For those like us who stay in the $10 self contained area you do “not” have use of toilets, showers or dump point (as you are paying a small fee and should be self contained) but other things are still available.


For those staying on a site with power and water (also TV connection) You have use of all the usuals. Toilets and showers, dump point and laundry


Cheery Nomads has a great little bar, serves food, has pool and ping pong tables, TV and darts as well as a little pond which would be lovely in summer. They also have a large camp kitchen and social area.

They have a small pool, fire pit and pizza oven which were not up and running while we were there. Some times it’s just not the right time, maybe next time.

These are all available to everyone.

Van, boat and car storage is also available for $10 per week should you need it.

A Short Drive

A short drive in to town and you will find a Marry Poppins statue and Marry Poppins Red and Green traffic lights. Lots of cafes and shops are also on the Poppins band wagon. It’s sometimes the small things that amuse us, this is one of those things.

We discovered a few walkways with some great art. Maybe I’m looking more now? or is it becoming more popular? ether way It can be so much fun.

Cheery Nomads is also only a 25 minute drive from Hervey Bay and one of the most popular places to go whale watching. We are here at the wrong time of the year. As we lived on the great Barrier Reef for a number of years we have been lucky enough to see them. If you haven’t, Cheery Nomads might be a great place for you to stay at a very low cost.
