Very Pleased to find such a Dog-Friendly Caravan Park on our way back from Brisbane to Canberra. Pleasantly sited off the beaten track, we were surprised by the Park's excellent cafe, (where we ate Saturday night), as well as by the young man who entertained lucky patrons playing Flamenco Guitar! The staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was made on... More

Helloo Elizabeth, yes we aren't quite the normal caravan park. Our excellent chefs also cook for the many mind, body and spirit retreats that we have here (including our own yoga retreats). The lovely Lucy is our sourdough expert! She was very thrilled with the photo you sent through. Delighted you had a wonderful stay. We like being different and... More

We camped here on a cool weekend in July, but we'd booked a brazier (and marshmallows) so the cold made the experience memorable. There were quite a few camping, but it's a such a large area that you felt like you were nearly in the park all by yourself. The amenities were clean and well kept - 2 sets of... More

Hello Alison, don’t worry we have had booking dramas (including my husband – notorious for it) so it is totally okay. We will always help and sort it out wherever possible. I can’t begin to tell you how many people arrive on the wrong weekend, wrong month, wrong place. That’s life. Why spoil the day – let’s sort it and... More

As it was our first family camping trip we didn't know what to expect but we were surprised at the amount of stuff we didn't need to take with us. The grounds are well set out with all the amenities you'd need. Yes it was cold and yes we got sand in the tent but it's all part of the... More

Our first visit so didn't know what to expect. Needed a dog friendly place so thought this would be a good place to come. Booked a standard family cabin which stated a futon bed/couch. Open plan it was, but very small. We knew all the rules, the ferry crossing ($4.80 each way), buy in town before you get here, beach... More

Hi Don, thanks for your review. Just to set you straight on some things which I think you may have misconstrued: 1. Yes we have very reasonable dog rules – no barking or aggressive dogs, pick up after them, the beach in front is not pet friendly, the beach to the south is! We have two signs up saying this... More

Hello Sue, so sorry to hear that you felt we weren’t as communicative as we should have been and that this affected your holiday. My sincerest apologies.
