We stayed two nights in a self contained cabin which was immaculate and well equipped. The cabins are located at the back of the park which is a nice quiet location. The laundry facilities in the park were good and each cabin has its own clothes line. The park is out of town and only a 5 - 10 minute... More

Good campsite location; close to Bitter Springs, but way too dusty and allot of black ash lying around after burn off. Not all campsites are allowed wood fires too, and you are not allowed to burn any discarded wood found in the camp area.

No bookings and you choose your own site. Many of the powered van sites were very large. The amenities blocks were made up of modular units with shower, toilet and washbasin all together. Sometimes this led to congestion, but there were free standing toilets available. It was a pleasant short walk to the tranquil Bitter Springs where it was a... More

This is an interesting park as it is first in best dressed there are no numbered sites you take your pick of what is available. Most sites are large enough for an annex. The amenities are also a little different, rustic but very functional with both toilet and shower together most being unisex. The beauty of this place is the... More

Stayed here for one night and could have stayed longer. Nice cabin. Clean and well equipped. Even supplied noodles to use in the thermal pool. The bitter springs is the main attraction. Take your noodle and float in the 32 degree, clear water. Fantastic. Well set out caravan park. Not many food options so bring your own supplies.

We stayed at Mataranka Cabins and camping for 2 nights during the school holidays and had a great time. We stayed in a cabin which was nice and clean. We were provided with noodles for Bitter Springs which is just beautiful. It was a really relaxing stay.

We where really happy with our experience and the close proximity to the bitter springs. Just a short walk down the road. Don't forget to pack your noodle, so that you can float in the springs. A great park and very helpful staff. Would recommend the park to visitors of all ages.
