Sandcastles On The Beach - Bargara


Thank you to all our guests who have been patient whilst we construct our new carpark.  Due to COVID-19 we have experienced delay in getting important materials which means the carpark will not be finalised for another 4 - 6 weeks.  We excpect minimal construction over the school holiday period as the builder awaits supplies. However all guests will be required to park outside the resort due to the carpark being removed and a new one installed.  You may drive into the property to unload etc but your car will then be required to be parked outside. Thank you for your patience while we undertake these important refurbishments.



During these unprecedented times it's important that all guests to the property adhere to the Federal and State Governments' advice in relation to non-essential travel.  Effective from the 2nd April 2020 the Queensland Government under the Public Health Act (2005) has implemented the Home Confinement, Movement and Gathering Direction.  Guests can find further information at

Whilst we are still able to trade, we must urge that travel is restricted to essential travel only for work or personal reasons, or those that are requiring temporary residency due to work, self-isolation or self-quarantine in accordance with Queensland Government directives. It is imperative that if you are self-isolating or self-quaranting that you follow the insturctions that have been outlined by the Queensland Government.  If you are unsure or at any stage feel unwell please contact your health provider, or Queensland Health on 13 43 25 84 or visit their website for further clarification

Common area access: 

- The communal BBQ area will remain closed in accordance with advice from Queensland Health.

- Guests can move through common areas but we ask that you adhere to all social distancing guidelines, which includes occupying tables in common areas restricted advice provided by the Prime Ministers office in relation to indoor/outdoor public gathering and keeping to two persons only, with the exception of people of the same household going out together and family units.


We have implemented strict cleaning practices in-line with advice provided by the Queensland Government and all linen supplied is sourced from a professional linen service. We will, however, not be undertaking mid stay service cleans to minimize contact with our guests and cleaning team. If you do require anything we ask that you contact the office.

Finally, if we can assist in any way during your stay whether it be information on getting online grocery delivered, take-away or simply to leave a book to read outside your room if you have no way of accessing any other material please let us know.  We understand these are difficult times and a small family run business we are doing our best to ensure the comfort and safety of all guests and team members.

Kind regards
