Our family of 2 adults & 2 kids stayed here for a weekend to attend a triathlon event, unfortunately the weather ended up being miserable and the event was cancelled but this had no reflection on our stay at the park. The cabin we were in was much larger and more modern than I expected, and very well equipped. The... More

I was looking for the place where I could stay with my dog. Accommodation was clean, beautiful location for relaxing. I went for walk in the morning on the side of tinaroo lake. Fresh air, wasn't too muggy. 2 nights weren't enough! I would come back here with my dog again!

The reception/ shop staff are helpful , happy and enjoy customer interaction. The pool and area around is inviting and cool with BBQ and camp kitchens,... More

Hi and thank you for your comments. Thank you also for mentioning to others to ask about the different accommodation types as a lot specifically ask for the budgets. Good news also, in the very near future, there will be new cabins being installed and the older ones done up. So hopefully you will come back and stay in one... More

This is a beautiful place to spend a few days. Try and catch a fish or do nothing. The staff here are very good. They are friendly and helpful. There are walks to go on and plenty to see in the area. Worth a visit

Nice staff, good location, we travelled as a family of four and we fit nicely into the waterfront villas although there wasn't enough room for the porta cot in any of the very small bedrooms. We hired a boat and tried to catch fish but no fish to be found in the lake of a thousand casts.

Hi, we're sorry to hear you didn't have any luck in catching any fish. We've checked and apparently the water was still a wee bit cold for the Barra. However, they along with a lot of Black Brim are being caught now that the weather has been warming up. We hope to see you up here over the Barra Bash... More

This area was unknown to us and we were very impressed with the area and would recommend it as a holiday destination. We could spend ages here as there is do much to see & do. The park was great - friendly and accommodating staff and nothing to complain about.
