We recently stayed at the Ocean View Tourist Park at Landsborough, in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Hinterland. It was an ideal spot for us to stay as we wanted to be able to explore the area around Maleny whilst we were there.
Ocean View Tourist Park is the perfect location to base yourself and explore the picturesque Sunshine Coast Hinterland. It is located just off the Landsborough – Maleny Road about a 30 minute drive from Maroochydore. Please note, if you are travelling from the Sunshine Coast and using your GPS, don’t take the first turn it tells you to – it’s a No Through Road!
Ocean View is owned and run by Peter and Bev. It covers a large area, and as the name suggests, the views back over the Hinterland to the ocean are pretty spectacular!
Chatting to Peter over the couple of days we were there I discovered just how much work they have done on this park in the last 3 years. By all accounts it has undergone a total transformation. A section at the front of the park that is now all level and grass was previously just gravel. All the cabins have been renovated and work continues on the sites at the back of the park where we were. There is even a site with it’s own deck!
There is a large outdoor deck area where you can gather of an evening to enjoy happy hour and I imagine you would get a lovely breeze there in the summertime.
My favourite part of the park though was the brand new Function Room and adjoining deck area.. This room is free to use if you make a group booking of six or more sites or cabins. It would be absolutely perfect for a family get-together or for caravan clubs as it has full cooking facilities.
It also has a large ramp leading into it as well as an additional toilet and bathroom with disabled access. Underneath that is the camp kitchen which is available for anyone to use. There is also a fire pit which can be used in conjunction with the Function Room.
If you don’t happen to have a caravan, the cabins looked new and modern.
The amenities block was large and although older style, it was very clean. I actually like older amenity blocks as the cubicles are often roomier, when you are getting changed.
There was also a laundry and plenty of clothes line space as well.
Overall we thought this park was quite lovely and we would stay there again. It was mainly quiet and peaceful, although you can hear the hum of traffic, but it was not enough to disturb us during our stay.
