PostSubject: Pelican's Rest, St. George, Qld.   Sat Jan 02, 2010 6:19 am

We stayed here on our way from Perth - Hervey Bay in 2007.
Pelican Rest Tourist Park is a new tourist park established in July
2000. The park is situated on the northern approach to St George. As
well as six hundred trees and shrubs planted around the park there are
already 30 lawn drive through and powered sites.

The camp kitchen is very much 'Outback Station' style but it doesn't
detract from the beauty of the park. There are also free bbq's and a
sit down area to eat your meal.

The amenity blocks were not only clean but very modern which was a bit
of a surprise for this area. I'm also told that there are plans for a
swimming pool to be built within the next 12-18 months. I was back in winter 2009 and so far no pool.

There were MANY drive thru sites so I think they are aiming for a
niche market but if you want to stay for a few days it is just as
comfy for several nights as it is for one or two.

It was a really nice and relaxing park. Although it was a tad out of
town (a bonus if you ask me) it was a great place to spend a couple of
nights. As the sun sets you will also be treated to the kangaroos
skulking around looking for a free feed.

And did I mention the fishing? This town has NO water restrictions,
which means there is a BIG river flowing alongside it. Murray Cod,
bream and goodness knows what else can be caught from this river. I'm
hoping to go there sometime again next year ... anyone care to join
me?
