"Hidden Gem" - Robert C

Information for Grey Nomads

We love the winters in Kurrimine Beach, the weather is perfect, the fish are biting and this is when we welcome back old friends returning to spend the winter months with us.  

So you will have worked out by now that we have a heap of facilities for children but that doesn’t mean that we expect our older guests to pay for them. We know how frustrating it is to pay for a jumping pillow that you will never bounce on! That’s why we offer special functions and special rates for the more mature traveller. Our local family visitors and the grey nomad season are at two different times of the year so it is unlikely that the park will be overrun with children during typical nomad season.

We are a small, friendly park with only 42 sites. During nomad season larrikins abound and spontaneous happy hours pop up all over the park! We do not have any permanent residents, most of our guests check in with us for a few nights and a couple of months later they are still here! We have lots of regular guests who come back year after year which I guess speaks for itself.

Friday Nights (JUN - SEP)

Friday nights are legendary at the Kurrimine Beach Holiday Park. Every Friday night we have a free BBQ, Soup Kitchen, Happy Hour or other event. This is a great time to get together with your fellow travellers, share travelling tales and have lots of fun. Friday night is the night to let your hair down, let inhibitions fly and try out our karaoke machine! It doesn’t matter how bad your singing is, it can never be worse than Tracey’s!

Christmas in July - held in July each year

Simply the best night of the year at the Kurrimine Beach Holiday Park. A “bring a plate” dinner with all meats provided by the park, ham, roast beef & pork. All salads & desserts donated by the guests. Add to this fun and games and of course a few glasses of your favourite tipple - this one is not to be missed!

Wine Tasting with Marquis de la Cuisine held in August 

Our wine tasting evening is always a barrel of laughs with our specially imported wine connousier Marquis de la Cuisine and his beautiful wife Kay Sera!

Morning Teas (JUN - SEP)

Wednesday morning is baking day… Our regular morning teas have proved to be quite a hit with our guests. A nice chance to get together with friends old & new over a nice cuppa and our homemade scones!

Fishing

Did you know that Kurrimine Beach is one of the best fishing spots in North Queensland?

With reef fishing directly from the beach, a great estuary and outer reef fishing not to mention tropical creeks and waterways the options are endless.

Kurrimine Beach boasts the largest fishing club in North Queensland - not bad for a town with a population of around 600. Mind you just taking a drive through town you will be amazed, each house has at least one serious boat and most have an old tractor, purloined from one of the local cane farms, that is used to launch their boats on any tide! The boat sheds in town are bigger than many of the houses! If you are here for a while why not join the fishing club, membership is only $10 for a year, it is a sure way to get all the insider local information, not to mention making a few good friends!

To say that Kurrimine is a community of keen fisherman is an understatement. Everything here revolves around fishing - the standard greeting around here is "been fishin' mate?" swiftly followed by "catch anything"!

Pet Friendly

Your fur-kids are welcome here too… We just ask that you keep them on a lead and under control and that you clean up after them, normal caravan park rules. Dogs can be exercised on Kurrimine Beach and we even have a dog bath here to wash all the sand off them before returning to your caravan and a separate washing machine just for pets blankets.
