Just changed owners and they are building some permanent units up back so road is dug up for nbn fiber laying. Trains can be heard but really aren't a problem. Cabin is great. Good for kids. Jumping pillow. Gas cooking. Air con reverse cycle. Plus silent space heater. Nice.

We arrived late one night for a cabin stay and were pleasantly surprised that the owners had put the heater on for us so the room was nice and toasty! It was cheaper than the other parks and provided linen on all the beds for no extra cost. The cabin was clean & functional & was good value. The park... More

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

We stayed here in our caravan over the March long weekend with our 6 year old twins. 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.
