Poinciana Tourist park – Yeppoon – Queensland

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

For those of you that stay in tourist parks along the coast, I applaud you. Unlike you we are not accustom to busy parks. Heading in to Yeppoon we felt the stress levels rising, we are not city folk any more. Ok it’s not a city but it felt like one!

As we don’t normally stay in busy area’s we didn’t think to book, double stress.

Rookie Mistake – Not Booking In Advance

Turning up un-announced at the first park, we were told by a lovely lady that they would have a site in a couple of hours. Apparently some parks have a mid day check in, now we know. Being new to this busy park concept we parked on the road outside the park (after having to back up the van to exit) and checked old faithful, WikiCamps.

I gave Larry the pleasure of finding the next park as I didn’t want to be the one making an already tense moment tenser.

Larry chose Poinciana Tourist Park and I gave them a call. The lady who I spoke to was happy and helpful, booking us in straight away. Within 20 minutes we were parked up on a large grassy site, relief!

Poinciana Tourist Park

This park is large and well looked after. Parking is down many lanes and I’m sure all were full. A couple of our neighbours had returned to the park several times and I’m betting many others do to.

The toilet/shower blocks are clean and a dump point is at one of them. They have a laundry and a camp kitchen with BBQ. A couch is in this area also with a TV and Book exchange. In the summer you might like a swim in the pool.


Poinciana is in a really good location if you don’t mind a camp not next to the water. Stroll over the road to the fish and chip shop in the evening or the pizza place. You can also get your shopping at the Spar.

Yeppoon’s sea front, shops and cafes are only 5 minute drive away. The large beautiful lagoon is here also. One more thing I noticed about the this stretch of beach line, so many toilets, you will never be caught short.
