Jacobs Well Tourist Park

1161 Pimpama-Jacobs Well Road, Jacobs Well QLD 4208

Situated on the waterfront of Jacobs Well and looking out over the southern end of Moreton Bay and the Broadwater, Jacobs Well Tourist Park is a fantastic holiday destination for families. Accommodation options include an array of shaded camp sites and self-contained villas that accommodate up to six guests. Always favourites with the kids are the playground and netted swimming enclosure. This park is adjacent to a boat ramp, restaurant and shops. For boaties there's a myriad of islands to explore and the fishing's great all year round.

Enjoy the peace and quiet and abundance of native wildlife including colourful lorikeets that visit each day to be fed. Surfers Paradise and Sea World are just a half hour's drive away. Access to rail transport and shopping centres, as well as the fun and excitement of the Gold Coast theme parks Dreamworld, Movie World and Wet ‘n Wild, are all within an easy 15 minute drive.


Our park is a fun-filled haven that all the family will enjoy visiting. There’s something for everyone with a friendly atmosphere, abundant wildlife and fabulous bayside location. If you’re looking for a relaxed, back to nature camping trip with the kids or an adrenaline pumping theme park extravaganza, you can get it all here! Not only that, but your family dog will love spending time here too (conditions apply).
