Hi Stephen and Deborah

I know of a few people who have stayed at Cottontree Caravan Park at Maroochydore, right on the river and surf beach. Nice quiet corner of Maroochydore! We have been there a few times as it is very convenient to the factory. Shops are within walking distance also. It gives you a chance to check everything out on your BT especially if you live a fair distance away. There are drive-through sites but the park fills up at Easter, Christmas and all other peak holiday times.

Have fun in your BT.

We stayed at Cotton Tree on our first weekend- delivery on a Friday and I didn't fancy hitting Brisbane peak hour as a towing newbie. The 10km or so to Cotton Tree was just fine!
We took site 231, which is drive through, and happened to be directly across from Meg and J (Hi guys!). It was very handy to run across and check their awning when we first put ours up. And DONT FORGET- wind the awning in the correct direction! ('under', not 'over'!!)
The spot was so nice that we left the van there for an extra week, and returned the following weekend.
We're trying out the beachfront park at Mooloolaba this (Easter) weekend.
Happy days
Bob

The note about the awning - "under" not "over". I've always wound over. Am I doing it wrong??

G'Day Pete.
There is a rotation direction arrow on the winder end of the awning box.

Hi Stephen & Deborah

We stayed at a tourist park called Forrest Glen. It's only a 10 minute drive from BT, just near an entry to the Highway, has shop, bottlo, newsagency just up the road and Buderim is only about 15 minutes away. The sites are drive through, and all in all a nice clean place. Might be worth a phone call to book depending on time of year. We were there mid December last year and there was plenty of room. Hope this helps.
Cheers
Peter

When we collected our van, we stayed at nambour Rainforest Village about 10 minutes from Bushtracker. Picked this one because it allowed dogs. It's a small park and a bit of a squeeze getting a 20' van onto the site, but not really a problem.

Since then have stayed at Forest Glen and it was very good. Both these parks are with 10 minutes of Sunshine Plaza (I think that's what it is called). It has EVERYTHING that you forgot to bring with you or decide you need for the van; kitchen goods, linen, tools, hoses, ladders - the lot!!

If a dog is not an issue, my recommendation would be Forest Glen. Chances are, like us you'll meet a couple of other new BT owners there as well!

I have seen a few people travelling up to Tewantin and staying at the Boganvillia Caravan Park that has large sites and so long as you are outside the main holiday period is not crowded. You can then enjoy the sights of Noosa and still be only 40 km from BTi. Sound In Motion also have a branch in Noosa that is much easier than their Nambour head office to access with a caravan.
