Treasure Island Holiday Park, QLD
Upon hearin’ about Treasure Island, th’ Pirate lovin’ sprog in me was already pullin’ out me Captain Morgan hat, ready fer an all out Pirate experience. However, it soon became apparent that Treasure Island was a lot less pirate ‘n alot more shipwrecked remains than I expected. As me childhood love faded away afore me eyes, words like Galleon, ‘n cannon ball attempted t’ brin’ about that pirate feel but ‘twas already too late, th’ illusion had been shattered. My childhood disappointment aside, Treasure Island Holiday Park is a beautifully presented caravan park with a range of top notch facilities that would make a Pirate feel like a fish out of water. With camp kitchen, mini golf, go-kart hire, four swimming pools, dump point and easy access to all three major theme parks, Treasure Island is an excellent holiday destination. Treasure Island is a pet free zone, so your parrot or trained monkey will have to join another pirate crew during your stay and sword fights and mutinies are not advised.
