Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

A brand new, modern and unique Resort - the first one of its kind to be constructed in South East Queensland since the 1970's - this outstanding Resort is located on the Maroochy River, a stone's throw from the unspoilt beaches of the Sunshine Coast.

Now if you're anything like me, I definitely don't like camping - I tried it once years ago and firmly believe a holiday where you have to work harder than when you're at home, is not my idea of a holiday. Glamping - glamorous camping is probably a good compromise for me, I tend to think of myself as a discerning traveller, so anything with a touch of luxury will far-better suit my tastes - my hair-dryer is an absolute necessity.

Rivershore Resort has all the options, whether you're a 'Glamping' (me, type of person); a Caravanning person; or a usual type of 'Camping' person - they are organised to suit all our preferences. I love this type of venue - proactivity at its best! Rivershore Resort definitely has the bragging rights to an irreplaceable waterfront setting, right in the midst of the Sunshine Coast and only a short distance from our pristine beaches. With plenty of space for your caravan or camper trailer, Rivershore Resort gives you the freedom to set up camp however you choose, whether you own a tent, RV or a caravan. Or, perhaps like me you want to be self-indulgent, we can stay in the luxurious self-contained safari tents with river views and the opportunity to view the abundance of wildlife.

'Glamping' (for me) facilities:-

Thirteen King Safari Tents;
Two Family Safari Tents;
Self-contained;
Four-poster King beds;
Ensuite bathrooms;
Kitchenette;
Televisions/speakers included in each tent;
Private setting
(and …electric points for my hairdryer)

These are absolutely fabulous with all the modern conveniences, a great outdoor patio to take in your serene surrounds and wildlife, an extra-large bathroom, offering both an extra-large bath AND a shower, a modern kitchenette and stunning contemporary decor.

Caravanning facilities and Camping facilities:-

Power on demand (PAYG);
Water;
Ullage;
Grass sites (minimum 10m x 12m);
Pet-friendly (outside of school holidays);
Multiple people;
Large groups, multiple families

I couldn't really tour this area as it was already fully-booked out with holiday-makers and I didn't want to encroach on their privacy.

The Camping facilities are the same as for Caravanning, but you need to bring all your own Camping gear. The grass sites are huge and with the perfect surrounds will give you the opportunity to enjoy sleeping under the stars and get back in touch with Nature - I, surely can do this with the 'Glamping' too?
