Had a nice shady, grassed unpowered tent site right near the amenties block and it was the best priced camp site on the whole run. Nice people and good clean facilities. It's up a side road near the centre of Town in a very quiet area. Really enjoyed my night there and got loads of uninterrupted sleep

The last time I stayed at this park was 2 years ago and I have avoided it since due to unsavoury permanent residents and their habits ... but this time I pulled in because it was under new management and everyone deserves a 2nd chance. The guys who are currently managing the park are very friendly and they went out... More

This is an unusual site. It has all the usual powered and unpowered standings and adequate but not first rate facilities but the site's quirkiness is it's charm. Firstly, it doesn't take advanced bookings - it's first come first served. Secondly, you pick your own place, they don't allocate one for you. Thirdly, they have their own bush tucker man... More

We stayed in one of the cabins for two nights. The cabin was adequate but old and showing signs of wear. The cups had been put into the cupboard unwashed and the smoke alarm was broken. The worst thing was getting a mouthful of abuse from the owner for daring to use the washing machines. Glad to leave and would... More

Thank you for your feedback Dina N, I am very sorry the crockery was not too standard particularly as you stayed 2 nights. We are careful with our cleaning and cabin presentation and would have responded immediately had you alerted us directly through Reception. In response to the Washing Machines; that day we had major failures to two of our... More

Great little park here it's quiet and clean but there is also live country music playing and a talk by outback jim who also does damper and tea every night he is well worth a listen. The reception are very friendly and helpful. Purchase laundry tokens at check in (:

We stayed in one of the standard ensuite cabins.it was adequate and reasonably comfortable but showing signs of its age. There were big chunks of Lino missing the floor was dirty and the air conditioner was too loud to use. Jimmy the bush tucker man performs every night and was worth watching. We found the park was extremely dark at... More

We stayed in one of their cabins. It was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower was really good. We went to Jimmys bush tucker and bush poet show, which was pretty cool. Make sure you get tokens from the office before you go to do your laundry :)

Stayed here overnight and whilst the grounds are in need of some maintenance the staff and range of facilities were good. Sites are reasonably shady. A private bar for guests and entertainment are provided. Decent basic vanpark.

Hello Ozplanman Thank you for the review. The staff are always cheerful and try to help out where ever they can with guests requirements. The shady sites are nice and all of our sites are long enough that you dont have to unhitch in any of our sites. Thanks again Safe travels Leah and Matt More

You will find drive through sites, clean amenities, friendly staff, away from main highway and trucks. Whilst not the newest of parks, this is comfortable, safe park to stay in. Fuel is available and an adequate mini mart is available.
