We spent a night here on the 2 May 2015 in a 3 bedroom cabin, all linen supplied. When we arrived Marion in reception was very helpful & could not do enough for us. The Park facilities are second to none with plenty of entertainment for the children including, jumping pillow, playground, tennis court & mini golf. When we were... More

Trains, trains, and more trains every hour ! Trying to get to sleep after 8 hours at the wheel ! You would think getting to sleep would be easy! NO The trains humming and dull roar go straight through the paper thin cabin walls! The cabins are out dated and over priced! Could of stayed at a 4 star hotel... More

Stayed only 1 night for a quick getaway in their most basic and cheapest cabin. I didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised - the cabin was spotless, spacious, full linen on all beds (u don't usually get this included in the price these days). The park pool is beautiful, mini golf was great, kids loved the bikes and jumping... More

The site was good a little tight to get van in and actually put annex up as the site we had (21) ensuite is situated centrally on the site rather than a rear corner. Was a little disappointed it wasn't grassed (mainly gravel).... More

We have stayed in the same 2 bedroom unit 6 times over the years, usually for periods of 6-8 days each time so that our grand children can come to stay during the day and use the Jumping pillow, mini golf, pool, play equipment etc. The cabin as always was very clean & reasonably well appointed. Unfortunately the children's playing... More

I recently stayed in a basic cabin with ensuite as a quick getaway from Melb with a friend and her children. The cabin was old but clean and suited our budget. Perhaps a rail or clothesline close by would have been convenient. The park itself is very neat and tidy and it was good to see staff out and about... More

We stayed here for a couple of days mid January and had a great time mini golf was a big hit, hopefully next time its a bit warmer and we can use the pool. Sites are a good size and everything was very clean and tidy. We will be back.

Staying at our first BIG4 we weren't sure what to expect! we were so pleased when we got there! we were greeted by lovely reception staff and met at our campsite by another employee who made sure we found it ok! The park is presented beautifully with extensive recreation areas, kids playgrounds, a jumping pillow, mini golf course, heated pool... More
