we camped in our motorhome at the Homestead last Saturday night and had a ball. Swam in the thermal springs and walked a track by the river. A bonus was a free live band The Three Amigos, who rocked the crowd with some great music. The next morning a little wallaby came right to our door and let us pat... More

Stayed in a cabin for 2 nights. Very tired and run down but clean and tidy. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good entertainment and thermal pool great. All a little dusty. Needs a good renovation. Would go there again but not in School holidays.

We stayed for one night in a cabin. The cabin was run down, but comfortable. The staff were very helpful and the bistro and entertainment on the saturday night was great. The thermal pool was only a two minute walk from our cabin, and although busy was still a lovely spot to have a swim. Only a four hour drive... More

We stopped off for one night in an unpowered site. Cost for 2 adults, 3 kids over 5 yrs was $34. The camp ground is very busy this time of year, so be prepared to be very close to your neighbours. The reception/store is well run and staff friendly. The bistro/bar area is well presented, caters for many people. Food... More

The natural Springs are magic. Well worth staying for. The food was great. The night entertainment excellent. Friendly place. The facilities ie cabins, amenities are old and need upgrading but suffice. Needs money spent on it

unfortunately we didn't arrive in town until very late afternoon and managed to pay for an unpowered site, then we had to find one. the grounds were quite full, people everywhere but there was room near the facilities for us to fit the camp trailer. It was very close to the facilities actually, which wouldn't have been a problem if... More
