We had another great family get together this weekend gone, in the well fun family park we've been visiting for a number of years. Our cabin was clean and comfortable, well appointed, we were given a proper carton of milk on arrival and shown to a cabin with the heating on ready for our arrival. Plenty for big and little...

Goldfields has been our go-to choice for family accommodation in Ballarat for years now...and our recent stay maintained our high regard of this park. We were late arriving to our cabin....but were informed that the heating and lights were on for us.....very thoughtful (given it was -3c overnight!!) and typical of the service above and beyond this place is renowned...

As North Queenslanders holidaying in the depths of winter we really appreciated the warm welcome in the amenities: central heating .... bliss. The Park really does cater for tourists all year round.

We were in Ballarat on the coldest day in 15 years in a campervan. So to find underfloor heating in the showerblock was absolute bliss! The staff were so friendly and helpful, especially after we froze the first night, and they hired us extra bedding. The staff were welcoming, helped us with directions for attractions in the city, and pointed... More

Have stayed here twice and can't wait to stay again! Reception staff is fantastic and the cabins were great. Walked to sovereign hill from here. In the heart of Ballarat yet nice and quiet. Set out nicely, gardens were nice and tidy. Reception suggested the red lion for a meal which was was yum. Overall a fantastic place to stay.

We stayed in a cabin that accommodated 4 persons. We were one adult and 3 children so bed sharing was necessary. Clean and neat quite cosy but adequate and economic for our needs. Park facilities were excellent, camp kitchen, pedal cars and location to Sovereign Hill. Would stay again. The staff were very helpful.

Staff were helpful and ensured our cabin was ready when we arrived early. Very clean and comfortable cabins - too cold to swim but pool looked great. Sovereign Hill is only a five minute walk. The gardens were lovely and the kids loved the playground and jumping pillow.

Two bed unit was ample for an overnight stay for four adults. Clean and tidy and everything necessary for the stay. A great park and close to Sovereign Hill. Staff helpful and check in easy. Enjoyed our short stay here, but maybe more dryers needed as we had to wait a bit of time to use them.

We spend quite some time structuring our rates to provide the best value for money possible and it is gratifying to have that acknowledged, Kazza D. Easter is understandably "kid" orientated with egg hunts, Easter Bunny visits and holiday activities so we are pleased that four adults are equally satisfied with the park and Ballarat in general.
