Location

Located in the heart of Far North Queensland, Australia, Cool Waters Holiday Park is the perfect place to experience the tropical lifestyle in a comfortable environment.

Cool Waters Holiday Park is only 7 minutes drive from Cairns city centre, yet is a world away from the hassles and noises of city life. The park is set in a tropical rainforest environment with large trees, a freshwater creek and expanses of lush green lawn. In addition to the tranquility and peace in a tropical outdoor setting, guests are only minutes away from shopping, fishing, boating, golf courses, bowling greens, tennis courts and squash courts.

The Park is located in the Cairns suburb of Brinsmead, a quiet and family oriented suburb whose defining feature is the large number of parks and freshwater creeks. Within easy walking distance of Cool Waters Holiday Park are three parks that are ideal for family outings.

Samuel Christensen Park, just across the road from Cool Waters Holiday Park, offers a large grassy area with playground equipment and free BBQs for public use.

Goomboora Park is situated behind Cool Waters Holiday Park, and offers approximately 4 acres of flat land covered with green grass – perfect for fun games of cricket or football. The huge park is dotted with shady trees and picnic tables, and is flanked by an inviting freshwater creek.

Approximately 2 minutes’ walk from Cool Waters Holiday Park is Glenoma Park – another large grassy area with a free flowing freshwater creek great for swimming.
