Elliott Heads Holiday Park
Elliott Heads Holiday Park caretakers Glenda and Michael Black said the holiday park was fully booked and were surprised by the number of local families who were staying only a stones throw away from home.

There’s only one thing campers at Elliott Heads Holiday Park wish during their Christmas and New Year visit to the Bundaberg Region and that's to stay longer.

The popular seaside camping spot has been fully booked for the festive season and caretakers Glenda and Michael Black said they’ve had multiple request from families wishing to stay longer.

Looking through the holiday park bookings, Glenda said she was pleasantly surprised by the number of local and semi-local families, with some travelling from as near as 10km to stay in the beautiful location.

“We have had some families return each Christmas season for 30-odd years now,” Glenda said.

“It’s nice to know generation after generation return.

“Some have come from as close as Coral Cove and Burnett Heads to stay here with extended family groups.”

Three generations of the Chambers family travelled from as far as Mareeba and were hoping to stay an extra few nights after arriving on Saturday and finding Elliott Heads to be the ideal location.

Glenn, Carmel, Christine, Garry, Lara, Asha and Ryan Chambers enjoy their stay at Elliott Heads Holiday Park.

Garry and Christine Chambers along with son Glenn and daughter-in-law Carmel and grandchildren Lara, Asha and Ryan were on their way home after visiting Fraser Island when they choose to stay two nights at Elliott Heads Holiday Park.

“This is our first time here,” Christine said.

“I wish we could stay longer but the park is now full,” Carmel said.

Carmel said there was a number of highlights about staying at the Elliott Heads Holiday Park which included the pathways and the location, while Asha said it was definitely the swimming at the beach.

“We don’t have surf like this at home,” Carmel said.

“We have to put a lot of gear on if we go in the ocean at home, head to toe to stop as being stung!”

The family also commented on the pathways around the foreshores saying they were ideal for the children to ride their bikes and scooters.

While in the Bundaberg Region the family hope to see the turtles lay their eggs at Mon Repos, and while the other adults visit Bundaberg Rum Distillery, Grandma said she may take the kids to Alexandra Park Zoo to check out the animals.
