Ours was one of four families recently enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Raffertys. It is a lovely, spacious, layed back resort and our kids especially enjoyed the freedom of being able to walk around freely from lake to pool to tennis court unlike many coastal areas of Australia where the 'dropkick ' element seem to congregate. Don't go expecting luxury but value for money as it isn't expensive for the facilities available. We had a very spacious 2 bedoom plus loft for 2 adults and 4 kids. The lake isn't really a swimming lake although the boys enjoyed swimming to a pontoon and jumping off that. The pools are lovely but the main pool of course is crowded at that time of year. If you can get your hands on a boat then you're set. We set up camp everyday on the lakeshore under some lovely trees and the kids had turns on the doughnuts, went fishing etc. You could take the boat right up to the shoreline which was great. We ate dinner at the Thai restaurant which was superb and the Blue Door which wasn't too good -oh well., although breakfast there apparently was quite good and you can get nice coffee and cocktails etc. Some areas of improvement needed; General store hopeless, poolside furniture needs replacing.
