4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were concerned about arriving earlier than anticipated with our van but the staff were most courteous and helped us select a site that was suitable as we have a satellite dish on the roof of van which doesn't like trees! The amenities were excellent, particularly the 'ladies' as they had just been renovated along with the laundry! Amenities one... More

We stayed for a week on a site. Amenities were good. Good camp kitchen and recreating room was good to sit in during the cold nights and the kids could run around. Pool looked fantastic but was on the cold side especially travelling with a 1 year old in winter so pool definitely needs to be more heated. The spa... More

We have 4 young children and we stayed in a matilda cabin off peak so it was very quiet for us which we like. The staff were nice as you would hope. What I found difficult though was inside the cabin, it was old and in need of updating (eg. bench cushions were very worn and provided very little cushioning,... More

Nice and quiet cabin no.26. All facilities within the cabin were great except a direction sheet for the air conditioner would be a huge help. This park was "sold" to us by the courteous Jaqui on the front desk before we even left home. Well done Jaqui! Free pancakes were offered for breakfast Saturday morning adding to the friendly and...

We had a single night and were given a good drive-through site. They were having trouble with their computer software but were happy for us to set up and pay later. The lady in reception recommended the golf club for dinner and rang to make a booking for us. It was a couple of kilometres down the road but easy... More

We had a rocky start prior to arrival with some confusion about our booking, however this resolved quickly and to our satisfaction.

We loved the free Easter activities aimed for all age groups and the indoor pool is fantastic! Park was very clean and the close proximity of the Lucas Shopping complex being only a short walk away is an added bonus!

Fantastic park and cabins for family. Staff were excellent and couldn't do enough to help, especially the lovely Jess. Kids club from 5.30-6.30 was great for the parents too! Indoor pool and spa complex was awesome.
