We chose the Windmill Holiday park because we wanted to stay out of the hustle and bustle of all that goes on in Ballarat. It has a lot to offer with an indoor pool and kids play area. The staff was very pleasant and easy to chat with. The ensuite was very clean minus the amount of spiders, but that... More

Dear HauntingBijou Thank you for your lovely review. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly park with the kids play area and indoor heated pool in constant use. We are so lucky to enjoy the almost new shopping centre over the road. So convenient for our guests to just pop over and pick up all they need. Yes, the... More

Dear Glenn C We appreciate you taking the time to post your lovely review. Thank you. Our lovely housekeepers make sure to pop the heaters on for our guests prior to arrival because, let’s be honest, Ballarat in winter is quite cold.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The park exceeded our expectations. The ladies amenities were lovely and warm and freshly renovated. We had our own caravan and booked a powered site. There was lots to do for families. Heated pool, games room, coonara, BBQ area and a playground. It was a great location and we did lots of sight... More

We stayed at a powered site during the Queen's birthday weekend & had a good time at this park. I especially enjoyed the updated women's bathroom & family bathroom. It was especially nice to walk into the toilets in cold old Ballarat & it was lovely & warm in there. It would be nice for the camp kitchen & games... More

Due to the weather being poor the park was a boggy mess. Upgrading the roads to bitumen & removing some trees so the sun can grow some grass would help this situation. The upgraded amenities are average also, even though they are heated it is still too cold in there. Very poor shower water pressure, would hate to be in... More

Dear Tammy D Thank you for your feedback. We are very disappointed that our Park, amenities, pancakes and Ballarat weather did not live up to your expectations. Our new heated amenities have met with unanimous approval from guests and our free pancake breakfast, which has been an ongoing tradition – every Saturday morning – for the past 10 years has...

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...
