My family, (husband, 16 month old daughter & I) just stayed 4 days/3 nights over the labour day long weekend in our travel trailer (caravan). Our caravan is 31ft/10 metres long on its own in addition to our long pick up truck and thankfully with booking 3 months earlier, we secured 1 of the 2 long pull through concrete spots... More

We stayed overnight in a 2 bedroom cabin. Clean & big enough for our family of 5. Our kids loved the playground, jumping pillow, pool & indoor spa. Staff were lovely & very helpful. We look forward to returning at Easter! Park was also wheelchair friendly & having a full size bath in family bathroom was a great help.

We had a great 2 nights stay here in the 1 bedroom miners cottage. It was clean and well kept. The staff were friendly. The kids had a ball in the pool on the playground, jumping pillow & games room. It was through a school term so it was quieter than during holiday period. Nice and close to Sovereign Hill... More

My 3 y.o. and 5 y.o. absolutely love this place...it's become an annual holiday for the family now. We went in early Jan 15 (third year in a row) and there were lots of other young children for our kids to play with, the jumping pillow, kid's activities, playground, swimming pool and games room.

My wife and I stayed here last night 17th February 2015 and booked for two nights. I have no real issue with the park, the place was basic and OK, spaces were very tight indeed, but we managed, staff were a bit cheesey and false, but hey this is a big city and I suppose they get customers all the...

Our cancellation and refund policy varies according to seasonal demand and generally early departures without notice will not be refunded. Of course, there are always exceptional circumstances and we would appreciate the opportunity... More

We travelled from Western Australia to see our Grandkids in Ballarat and stayed at the Big4 Ballarat Goldfields Holiday Park. Our cabin was well appointed and equipped and absolutely clean. Although it was set up to sleep six we found it a little cramped when the two grandkids stayed over. We also found the double bed a bit small as... More

We have stayed her many times in one of the Miner's Cottages, generally when my parents who reside in Ballarat, have an overflow of guests or when we know they don't need to cope with making beds, getting extra meals etc. The cabins house quite a few people and have a double-bed master bedroom and a bedroom next to it...
