What a great place for families. We stopped for one night on our way to Longreach. We (2 adults & 2 children) stayed in a cabin that had everything we needed. Great helpful staff & terrific atmosphere.

We stayed one night on the way home from 2 weeks away and had a very pleasant stay. Whilst the amenities were not new they were sparking clean. Both the showers and toilets were spotless. I had the nicest long hot shower I have had in two weeks! And it was super quiet. Thanks for a fabulous night!

OK, fast check in. Small sites, dated and cold amenities. We only stayed for one night, good location about 900m walk to shops. Park is not very secure so be careful with your gear. Next time, we would stay at the show grounds, they are cheaper and have the same facilities but a bit further out of town.

Thankyou for your review - as we always say, its better to be safe than sorry in a camp ground situation and to look after your belongings - We are pleased that you liked the short walk into town and we are in a great location. We are always here if you would like to return. Thanks again More

We stayed in a studio cabin and found it to be excellent. Best feature were the loads of shelves which we could put all of our stuff away in without falling over it all the time. Clean, quiet.

Park was very clean, and close to town, easy walking. Amenities outdated but clean. Office staff were friendly and helpful. Our site was near the road. We made sure we pack everything away at night. Just to be sure.

Thankyou so much for your review of our park - We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. I certainly believe its better to be safe than sorry, and although we have not had thieves in the park for many years, in any camp ground situation, its better to be aware of the possibilities. More

A bit dated and in need of some tender loving care. An upgrade or renovation of the bathroom would not go astray. The drive through site was easy from the road. The camp kitchen was well set up although a refresh here also be good. We would stay again as there were not enough negatives to change our minds. 👍👍👍

Our stay here was upset by a resident who had hurled abuse at an elderly couple setting up camp. This resident is a total tool, and to aggressively use such foul language at these innocent people over a "piece of grass" was such a disgusting sight!!! We feel bad for the other residents who have to put up with this... More

We had a double cabin that was one of three joined, it shared the square with three other blocks. The cabin was comfy but quite small. The bed was comfortable and the en-suite practicable. Our cabin contained plates, cups and cutlery, a refrigerator, microwave, kettle and toaster. The aircon was quiet and worked well. There was a useful cupboard, bench... More
