We stayed with a sports group and hired approximately 20 cabins for the weekend. Hosts were pleasant and the exclusive use of the function room was much appreciated for our team meetings. The grounds looked well kept and the facilities were as expected if a Big 4 - jumping pillow, pool and camp kitchen all good. Will stay again.

We stayed in a very comfortable garden villa. It was a great three day break from our camper trailer journey and was comparatively luxurious. Mid winter, plenty of heating. Electric blankets. Great space for a couple but more bunks for a family. Queen bed. We are walking distance to Sovereign Hill but only a twenty minute walk to Bakery Hill... More

We stayed here for the Christmas in July lights at Sovereign Hill. This Big 4 is within walking distance (10mins walk up hill) We drove as it was cold and wet. We had a small cabin. 1 double bed and bunks. The room was very warm, had a tv with all the free to air channels and in house movies.... More

This winter has offered an amazing range of things to see and do in Ballarat, Stua76 so it is good to know that our guests are taking advantage of that. The Christmas in July lights at Sovereign Hill are always spectacular and this year, Winterlude compliments that perfectly. Make sure you make time to do both next year! Thanks for... More

We stayed in one bedroom miners cabin. The cabin was very clean with all the little things needed. The park offered holiday program things for the kids and plenty to do on site. The park was in walking distance to sovereign hill and very close to town.

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...
