We stayed over night on a road trip. The cabin was perfectly clean and well maintained. The facilities were very basic but fully adequate. There was a doubt bed (not huge), microwave, jug, fridge, tea and coffee. The bathroom was fine. TV and aircon worked well. ?The gardens were lush and attractive. Reception was efficient and was open from 6am...

We stayed 1night with our grandson. Had to change our reservation and it was smooth.the staff were very accomodating and welcoming.their store is well stocked. We had fun in the pool. Stayed in oasis.heaps of room and very clean. Only complaint is plastic wine glasses. They say because glass breaks. I think thats very silly. But had a great time.

Stayed in a superior family unit and it was terrible. Very old and dated. Shower had ants making a home in it and cleaners couldn't even make beds which meant when we arrived at 8:30pm and had to make our own. Called after hours number and they couldn't care. Will never be back!

We stopped here for a night on our way up the coast. It's clean and tidy,located on the main drag through rocky and fairly priced. Staff were friendly and helpful too. Only negative and it's a small one is the lack of good quality and free internet. Would stay again.

Very very calm clean and super tight place. Was a great contrast to the normal camps we have seen. Bring your own gasburner as the only kitchen we could find was a BBQ pit. It was 31 dollars for a powered site,

Perfect size for our little family. full size fridge, toaster and kettle. Bathroom is tiny, but clean and functional. Very tidy and well maintained grounds, lovely gardens. great price, all the comforts of a hotel room and half the price, we booked one night and stayed for 2! Friendly staff also.

Easy to find as it's on the highway and yes some traffic noise but you don't hear it after a while and we are almost on the front fence!! Park staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. Amenities are clean and the park itself is spacious and well cared for. Would I stay here again??? YES.

We have stayed in a studio tropical cabin twice just recently. Two of the cleanest cabins we have stayed in over the years with very comfortable beds both times. Good sized tvs and lovely showers.

We stayed in the campgrounds in a tent on a Saturday night after driving up from Brisbane. BEWARE the campgrounds are RIGHT BESIDE THE HIGHWAY!! Other caravan parks I've stayed in put the tent campers out the back away from road noise since they have no insulation. I'm sure this place would be fine for those in caravans or staying...
