  • My girlfriend and I did the High ropes course here. It was loads of fun and a great challenge. Suitable for almost everyone and different difficulties to suit.

  • This place is an activity park. The high ropes courses up in the trees are awesome and I recommend everyone give them a go. A great safety system in place! I would suggest camping is not their main focus and there are plenty of other great places to go camping. If you're after the adventures that these guys provide, you'll love it.
  • This place does not deserve even 1 star. 12th August 2016. Called 2 hours ahead to make sure a suitable 1 night unpowered site was available for our motorhome, with details of the vehicle supplied to the staff member, who said be sure to arrive before 7pm as no staff available after then. Climbing the narrow winding road, around 6.30pm, in the dark, from Brisbane we spotted a sign showing Cedar Falls to the left and one above pointing straight ahead for Thunderbird Park, so we continued another 15kms, passing the village at the top of the mountain and beyond, without finding the park. With minimal phone coverage, and approaching 7pm, we called the Park for location, to be told that the sign was "a bit confusing" but that is where we should have turned! Returned, turned in followed dark road to end, no park, or turning bay! Very difficult turn around and back to main road to find entrance to the park on the left only visible when approaching from that direction, NO lighting or signage.Not at all happy by this stage.Knowing that we would be arriving after dark, surely we could have been told these details in the 1st call! At reception, paid $28 and given map for 2 suitable sites to find in unlit area. Drove up the rough access road to 2 grassed tent sites on very sloping ground, totally unsuitable for anyone to sleep on, tent or vehicle. Back onto road and drove around to find another more suitable site, found several LESS sloping blocks so back to reception to complain. Were offered refund if we liked but no apology. Staff member had never been around the park to know what conditions were like!! Questionable training? Didn't know that the sites we asked about even were vacant, were told to "choose what you like", so used the best we could find. No camp kitchen, 250 metres to amenities block over rough track in the dark. Wife has 2 new knee joints and not happy at all with the trek as the closer block required a key that wasn't available to us. Now after 8pm, so made a light meal on sloping table and went to bed. Doona kept sliding down the bed because of the slope, a new experience! Been to Dachau Concentration camp in Germany, even the inmates there got a level bed! Morning shower, as soon as the token in slot for 4 minute shower, hot water is on, full, cannot turn off, so quick undress and 2 min shower, no curtain, so trying to dry yourself with hot still pouring out, wasting water, in what is claimed to be an Eco friendly park. After 55 years of camping all over Australia, starting as a child, this is the standout worst joke I've ever experienced. Could not wait to depart from this place. I rarely can be bothered to complain, just get on with life, so you have been warned!!! Stayed at Goondiwindi the next night, same price, great facilities, camp kitchen and flat ground.
  • C'Mon have a look at Thunderbird Park, where the Thunderbird Eggs await. Such a variety here, for the ones who are peckish then head into the restaurant for a meal, of just grab a snack ... maybe a cold drink on them balmy summer days ... or a Coffee to build the energy levels. Go Thunderbird Egg fossicking, must climb onto a horse for a trial ride or slip on them hiking boots and explore the place yourself. Camping available, have camped here many times and it is fantastic .... so pop in have a look
  • Don't come here for Telstra reception. But thats the whole idea, right? Good staff, food choices, things for kids to do (young and old)
  • Excellent horse riding experience with me and my partner! Would definitely come back and recommend (: lovely staff too! x
