Arrival Information

We look forward to welcoming you to our unique Park.  Simply follow the security gate instructions that were sent to you at the time of booking.  Your phone number will be registered into the gate on the day of your arrival.  Check in time is any time after 2pm as we need this time to keep the park in pristine condition.  Please don’t arrive early and expect the gate to open.  Proceed to the office where you will find a map of the Park outside the office with your site details.  If you have booked a private shower and toilet or an on-site accommodation option,  your keys will also be available here for collection.  The key return box is located on the shed before the exit.

Wallaby Wash House - disabled friendly shower, toilet & laundry

Please don’t set up in a camp site location that has not been designated to you, as this can create over-booking.  If you want to move to another site for whatever reason, that is ok, just check with us at the office beforehand, so we can confirm the site is available. (this does not apply to large group bookings)

If you require firewood whilst you are staying and you haven’t pre-booked, contact us before 5pm to arrange.  You can easily pre-book your firewood by logging into your account, as per the instructions on your Confirmation email.  There are scattered firepits throughout the park which you are welcome to move to suit your campsite.  15kg lots are available at the office before 5pm for $10.

The midges and mozzies can be a problem in the summer months, especially after a lot of rain, so be sure to pack mozzie coils.  We have a range of 100% deet free products here that we use and recommend from Good Riddance, these are also available for pre-purchase at our on-line store and can be made available for your arrival.  Visit Midge Magic Man Store  or come say g’day at the Urangan Pier Park Markets every Wednesday and Saturday 7am to 1pm.  Be prepared.  We are in a natural environment surrounded by water and 40 acres of bushland that has been dedicated to Land for Wildlife.

We can also arrange a tour to Fraser Island (K’gari) for you and the courtesy bus stops at the Bush Kitchen at 8am.  Have a look at the little video from when we made the trip.  It is excellent value for money.  

Or take a tour over to Lady Elliott Island on the Great Barrier Reef.  Here is a short video of our trip there.  We absolutely loved it.  You can also book this tour with us.  There are no guarantees with availability if you leave these tours until the last minute as they often book-out.

Fraser Coast Dog Care offers in-house dog minding for $50 per day if you want to venture out and have your fur babies taken care of in the comfort of their own surroundings.  Bookings are essential.

You can find lots of information in the bush kitchen about tours and maps to the nature reserve with the walking trails.  The 40 acre nature reserve has been dedicated to Land for Wildlife.

There is a hose and tap at the Ironbark tree just outside the security gate.  This is also a good spot to flush out your motors for your boats and jetski’s.

There is a free dump point at the Hervey Bay Visitor Information Centre open 24/7 on the Maryborough Hervey Bay Road, 20 minutes away.

There is an IGA shop 2.5kms up the road, open 6am to 6pm, that sells everything, including hot food and coffee.  The River Heads Cafe also has lovely meals, takeaways, pizzas, coffee and sweeping views of the Mary & Susan Rivers.  You can find their menu in the Bush Kitchen.  

All your chemist supplies can be found at the River Heads Pharmacy.  Closest fuel is BP at Airport (10 minutes) and this is also the closest bottleshop.

If our dog Rosie comes to visit you, please don’t feed her and if she is annoying simply point to the house and say “go home”.

Rosie usually has her green scarf on and she will come and greet you.  She is a very friendly dog and loves belly rubs.

Rosie also handles any complaints.

The other little dog that comes and visits the Park is Jimmy.   He loves to play ball even though he is almost completely blind.  He is an old dog that used to live here and now he comes and visits the Park, checking out who he can get to throw the ball.  Jimmy gets frustrated when Rosie steals the ball and barks, just say “stop barking” and he will.  Also you can tell him to “go home”.  Jimmy is afraid of small children and we don’t recommend you let the young ones play with him.  Both of these dogs are rescue dogs and they are best mates.

We do everything possible to ensure that your stay is a memorable one connecting with nature.  In the current uncertain times we understand that you may not be able to travel because of enforced restrictions.  If this occurs, we are happy to hold your booking in credit for when you are able to travel again.  Send us an email to let us know if your plans have been altered.  All bookings automatically attract a $25 cancellation fee if you do not want a credit.   If you have received a tentative booking confirmation, this will automatically cancel if no payment is made.

Entry to the park is by prepaid booking only.

Please don’t hesitate to email us with any questions or recommendations for improvements.  We are a husband & wife team with our dog Rosie and we have opened up our home for you all to enjoy.
