About the Park


Cool Waters Holiday Park is exceptionally well managed and rated with over 4 stars for good reason.  We are located in a quiet, convenient area of Cairns being just seven minutes drive from Cairns City and handy to all tourist and city attractions. Kuranda Rail Freshwater Station is only two minutes drive and we are on the same road as the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway.

We are proud to offer guests an enjoyable stay in a truly unique tropical setting with a natural freshwater creek bordering most of the park. Wildlife is abundant with, many species of fish, turtles, the occasional platypus, and colourful birds set against the backdrop of magnificent mountains.  

We are fortunate to have the benefit of our caravan park entrance being on a major road but the park itself, in particular the campground, is situated on the creek, well removed from any road noise.  



All of the accommodation at Cool Waters Holiday Park is exceptionally clean and well maintained.

All accommodation has air conditioning throughout, cooking facilities, and an outdoor undercover sitting area. We cater for the solo traveler on a budget, families, and large groups. Options range from a budget open plan cabin to a split-level loft-style arrangement overlooking the creek, or a four-bedroom family suite. We take pride in our customers feeling at home and wanting to return.

We also have two pet-friendly cabins. These can only be booked directly with reception so please contact us for further information.

Linen hire is available for all accommodation types at a very reasonable cost.



Our caravan and camping sites are situated to make the most of the picturesque surroundings with the backdrop of mountains and huge rainforest trees bordering the creek. We have large sites with and without slabs and beautiful creek frontage sites. These offer the ultimate place to relax on your holiday.

Choose from:

  • Powered sites with a concrete slab

  • Grass powered sites ideal for bigger rigs

  • Unpowered campsites

  • Pets are allowed on sites upon request at the time of booking.

We can offer shade if required and most sites have garden beds in between to provide privacy. All sites have power and water and most have sullage. All guests have access to the many activities and facilities here.


Transport to and from Cool Waters Holiday Park is easy if you do not have a vehicle, courtesy of the local Sunbus service that picks up passengers just across the road. They can transport you into Cairns City, out to the northern beaches, and to countless tourist attractions that Cairns has to offer. For further information on the Sunbus timetable go to their website at

Cool Waters has an arrangement with local pubs that provide complimentary pickup service to their establishment. They will then bring you back to the park whenever you are ready to leave. All of these pubs have very good restaurants so going out for a meal has never been easier.

Taxi booking is also available at the office.
