Big 4 Rivershore Resort, Sunshine Coast QLD

Big 4 Rivershore Resort is a purpose built caravan park / resort with a picturesque setting located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast that offers 70 VERY large and spacious caravan + camping sites plus luxury safari family and couples tents.

We drove into the park and over to our HUGE, fully grassed powered site. When I say huge, I mean HUGE. There was an enormous amount of space. We had the caravan, awning fully extended, clothesline and table outside of the awning space, our car plus we still had enough room to fit at least another car on our site. All sites also had a large mesh flooring cloth rather than a concrete slab and we found that this cloth was much larger than the standard slabs you find on most sites at other parks. It became quickly obvious that this is a very family friendly, easily accessible park which lives up to its resort name with all it offers.

Big 4 Rivershore Resort hosts three separate modern amenity blocks and three modern camp kitchens which made life very easy at meal times when preparing dinners. They are well spaced out over this huge park so meal prep is never too far away.

Rivershore Resort has a fully licensed bar and restaurant right in front of a very large heated resort pool inclusive of cabanas, pool side drinks and food service, two water slides and a toddlers pool / water play area. Even better still, to maintain the Resort feel, you can even charge your meals and drinks back to your site and pay the total bill on check out. All of this coupled with the gorgeous Sunshine Coast weather, our kids didn’t leave the pool area for hours on end! It was like a water park that is suited to all ages! The resort even offers the use of inflatable tubes that allow the kids to safely slide down the water slides….Chris may have even had a go on one at one stage 🙂

Other amazing facilities that Rivershore hosts are a large kangaroo jumper, mini golf, kayak and SUPs for hire for use on their pontoon (see photo for prices), pedal karts and kids bikes. The roads throughout the park are great for kids riding for added piece of mind.

The kids playground and outdoor activity areas are also great for kids to play whilst parents enjoy a coffee in the kiosk. We visited the fire pit of an evening and chatted to other guests enjoying the relaxing atmosphere.

Apart from offering great facilities, this resort goes the extra mile showing movies each night on the projector screen. Our stay was outside of school hours and we found this to be a great asset the park offers that we utilised every night.  The park also offers diving classes in the resort pool for adults, aqua aerobics and great dinner deals that can be delivered to your caravan to save a night of cooking. Rivershore Resort hosts an annual event for families travelling around Australia. I’ve included a photo of the event below and you can click on the picture which will take your to their facebook event page for more information.


With the free wifi and 24 hour onsite management, Rivershore Resort has given us an opportunity to relax and unwind with a resort feel yet still be close enough to the heart of the city to enjoy everything the beautiful Sunshine Coast has to offer.

There are so many things to do at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast! We loved their amazing talks, animal feeds and seal presentations which is all included in your admission price. The seal presentation is one of the most enjoyable and memorable animal presentations Chris or I have ever seen. It was not only informative but we found ourselves laughing for the entire show.

We were given a full list of feeds and talk times along with helpful ‘Top Tips’ which made for an easy and enjoyable day.

Both Chris, I and the kids were lucky enough to have a personal seal encounter in which we all sat beside a gorgeous seal named Bella and learned so much about them. We were able to pat her, assist in training her and saw what skills she has been taught. This was an an incredible experience and one that we most HIGHLY reccomend to those who visit. Photographs of the experience are included in the price and it truly is something we will all remember for a very long time to come.


Bellingham Maze

Bellingham Maze is a wonderful 80m x 80m star-shaped hedge maze in Tanawha (approximately a 10 minute drive from Maroochydore). Entry to the hedge maze is by a token gate with a token purchased from the tea house. (Prices here)

Visitors are able to wander through the hedge maze at their leisure, finding clues along the way to solve the riddle at the end. Along the way you will also find the tower in the middle and enjoy the amazing views from above the maze. Other activities you can find at Bellingham Maze are – a rope maze, a tyre maze, a wooden maze with a scrabble game and a mini golf course.
