Big 4 Ballarat Goldfields was fantastic! It has definitely set the bar very high for any other big 4 parks we stay in. The park is clean and tidy, the facilities were great and the staff were wonderful. I really can't fault anything. If you have kids this is 'the' place to stay!

The cabin was tidy and well presented. It had a comfortable bed. I was greeted by very welcoming staff. Lots of facilities: pool, spa, jumping pillow etc. There was a bit of noise from all the families staying with babies and small children, but it didn't keep me up when trying to sleep. Bottomline: I would recommend staying here.

First time we have stayed at a Big 4 holiday park & we weren't disappointed. I researched options on line & motels of a comparable cost & star rating couldn't compete with the range of activities & facilities. Our 8 year old daughter loved the pool, jumping cushion, games room & free activities. She made new friends & we felt... More

Called in without pre-booking, hoping that we could have a powered site, which they did. So incredibly hot that day. Next day we found out that the temp had reached 46.5! Any wonder we were hot. Site was well situated and camp was very busy, but well run and organised. Staff helpful in a busy way. This was our first... More

We, along with the rest of the caravan park, were kept awake until 1am by other guests who decided to sit out side drinking, talking and swearing until 1am. The park manager was talking to them until 11pm but did not enforce the 10pm quiet time rule. This is a kids caravan park and not really suitable for older people.... More

Beautiful park very green and safe for kids to ride bikes scooters ect. Has a nice enclosed pool and jump pillow: budget cabin a bit small for family of 4 but over all nice place to stay. Will take camper next time instead of cabin as it was a bit expensive for what it was.
