Stayed in the fenced caravan site with power and water. Beautiful views, great showers, and amazing dog runs. Located in gorgeous cool climate rain forest, with lots of wild life within hearing, if not site. Current owners are lovely people, and were very helpful. Even came out to say good bye. Will definitely be returning both as campers and to... More

Beautiful scenery, lovely views of the Tarra Valley. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The camp kitchen is well set up and the showers are excellent. Other campers were very considerate. We will definitely be coming back.

We had 2 nights here and are looking forward to going again soon. The cabin we stayed in was very well equipped and spotless. Our dog loved being with us on holiday and very much enjoyed meeting other dogs in the various off-leash areas. We saw a koala mum and baby pair tucked into the V of a gently swaying... More

We spent a weekend here with our dog. What an absolutely amazing place and concept. The resort has several off leash areas and play areas with tunnels, ramps jumps for the dogto play on. The cabins are basic but warm, dry and comfortable. There are several fenced off camp and caravan sites on the property. Abundant wildlife and surprisingly quiet.... More

We've been to a lot of caravan parks over the years but never one like this, which actually welcomes dogs, and they must sleep inside at night. We have just spent 3 nights in the Budget Cabin with our two elderly dogs, and even though the weather wasn't too good, we had a great time. The cabin was comfortable, with... More

Stayed in one of the budget cabins this weekend (Fri & Sat nights). It was perfect for a relaxing weekend away with my pup Chunk. Having a fenced area at the front of the cabins for the dogs is perfect, as are the numerous off lead areas. I don't know of any other holiday parks where dogs are treated #1!!... More
