It is thirteen years since we last stayed here. During that time the majority of spaces for caravans have had cabins built on them. It is now more of a "cabin park" rather than one for caravans. Drive through sites are limited. Anyone traveling East towards Melbourne, this is the park for you. There is no need to stay in...

We stayed one night with our caravan in a powered site before boarding on the Spirit of Tasmania to head home. Staff were all so friendly and helpful. We paid extra to be able to stay some of the next day as we didn't have to be at the boat until 5pm. Otherwise, they have a storage area for your...

Our first family trip to Melbourne as a family. Booked the discovery as the reviews looked ok and the discovery parks are always good for the kids. Booked the budget cabin on line. Really disappointed on arrival. Very old and tired looking cabin. We were situated in the end one near to the main road and despite there being fencing...

Great, clean, warm & useful amenities, BBQ facilities, kitchen & laundry. This place is worth every penny. For $10 & a $10 refundable deposit you can book the spa and sauna for an hour, book the table tennis or pool table. Heated pool and two BBQ areas, 2 dump points & heated floors in the bathrooms. Yep, heated floors. Family,...

We had previously stayed in a new ,disabled cabin and we had the best weekend as a couple of 30 years that we could have. There is a chicken shop, bread shop and lack lustre Woolworths nearby but its worth the effort to go 6 blocks south to get access to better provisions. The laundry is fantastic at 4 dollars...

Love the spacious ground where kids can run around safely. Supermarket is next door where you can get all your cooking stuff and bbq stuff. Rooms are self contained and comes with electric blanket during winter. 10mins drive away from high point shopping mall, one of the biggest in the SW hemisphere. Highly recommended..

Out of all the hotels I've been to in my life, this is far the best. For the cheapest cost ever, the staff is friendly and very helpful. Amenities are awesome and the rooms are clean and spacious.

We chose Discovery Parks because it is close to our son's new house at Maidstone. The Park is well established with beautiful gardens and facilities, including pool, spa and sauna. The cabin was quite a surprise. We have stayed in cabins before and they are almost always extremely basic. Discovery Parks - Melbourne, however, is one of the best accommodation...
