The Cotton Tree Holiday Park in Maroochydore (maplink) has a special place in our hearts as we visited in 2012 and fell in love with the place. It’s right on the Maroochy River has fantastic sites which give you complete access to stroll across the road for a swim or just chill out on the sand.
We only had 3 nights here and basically chilled out on the beach, taking some swims and watching the kite surfers in the Maroochy River Estuary. it was a great, but short, stay.
Since we were last at Cotton Tree they have installed these huge sandbag groins to stop the beach and estuary mouth from being eroded. The Maroochy Groyne Field Renewal Project is currently underway to save the caravan park at headland.
The sunsets are still pretty spectacular as well…
