Hydeaway Bay Caravan Park

Caravan Park - Queensland


If you are looking for a tranquil spot in the Whitsundays to kick back and relax, do some beach combing, snorkeling, fishing or simply enjoy the bush setting, then Hydeaway Bay Caravan Park is for you!

Part of the Whitsunday region, the very secluded Hydeaway Bay lives up to its name. Don't be surprised if you are the only one sunbathing on the long sandy beaches, or you have the rocky headland to yourself for fishing, or you are the only one enjoying snorkelling around the beautiful fringing reef off the beach.

It is totally un-spoilt hamlet nestled in a quiet secluded pristine bay with no holiday crowds, supermarkets, noise or busy traffic. What it does have is a low-key residential area, a quiet bush setting caravan and camping park with a kiosk where ice, hot water and cold drinks, snacks, bait and basic grocery supplies are available. The road is now sealed all the way.

Hydeaway Bay Caravan Park is in a peaceful bush setting 5 minutes walk from the beach (and no roads to cross over). Wildlife comes to the park. Wallabies, Kangaroos, Potaroos wander through, along with the lorikeets and bird life that can be experienced up close.

Owner operators Paul and Roz Willcocks say the local fishing is another attraction at Hydeaway. Both experienced and beginner anglers can have a lot of fun and luck fishing off the beach, or, out in a tinny off the nearby reefs.

There are many powered and unpowered sites for vans and campers. You will be greeted with a friendly welcome.

We have a kiosk, a recreational room with a pool table TV and a book exchange. There are coin operated washing machines and a dryer. The BBQ camp kitchen area has a timber fired BBQ, a fire pit and a camp oven pit.

There are other activities including beach walking, searching for shells at low tide and viewing exposed coral, some bring canoes and sailing boats. Restrained pets are welcome. So bring your van, tent, boat, etc and rediscover the joys of simple beach pleasures and a laid-back lifestyle for a couple of days or weeks or months.

No information about park or surroundings on arrival. Only interested in us signing a dog declaration. Had to ask neighbours where the dump pt was. Small amenities but pretty clean. Beautiful bays around area. Very quiet at night. Park has a lot of annual migrants which makes it a little clicky. No local shops, but a pub & corner shop 20 minute walk away

Mozzies are very prevalent, although the area has had a lot of rain. It may not be bad all year round. Strangest dump point I’ve ever seen, a PVC pipe sticking up out of the ground and a sign indicating what’s not to go into it. One would be forgiven for thinking it’s just an outdoor urinal. There is NO tv reception at all. The park is overpriced at $39 pn for what’s offered.

Very expensive for what it has to offer, $35 unpowered 2 Adults, were going to stay 1 week, stayed 1 night
