We usually go off the grid camping, no power, remote and not many people. Our neighbours who also have a Jayco pop top are the complete opposite, we joined them for our first “tourist park” experience. Agnes Waters Beach Holidays did not disappoint. The location of the park is AMAZING – absolute beach front and we loved it and will be back.
Agnes Waters is 4.5 to 5 hours from Maroochydore. Travel time depends on traffic & roadworks on the Bruce highway. You can either go via Bundaberg or go further north to Miriam Vale – much the same, I prefer Miriam Vale as we were towing so less windy roads. There are lots of great towns to stop at along the way and stretch your legs or enjoy a pie and sweetie at one of the many great country bakeries.

We were in site 51 – powered caravan site, we had beach views and a shady grassed area close by for an afternoon soccer match.
What we loved
- Location, Location, Location
- Cafe – great for morning coffee or lunch
- Dog-Friendly – the campground is dog-friendly but the beach where the surf life-saving flags are is not (further North is) when we hit the beach we tied the dog up on the grassed area between beach and campground
- Amenities – modern and clean
- Accommodation options – if I didn’t have kids I would be in that bungalow on the beach
- Walk or Bike Ride to town for shops, bottle-o or great restaurants
- Wooden structures for the kids to climb on in front of cafe & playground about 5min walk away
Room for improvement
- Camp Kitchen could do with an update
