This was our first time to Ballarat with our children. I'm so glad we chose this park, Mark and his family made certain we felt comfortable. My family and I often travel around Victoria and NSW whenever it's school holidays and I must say this is one of the better parks that we have stayed at. The children enjoyed the... More

The owners have been here for years, which a great sign that they are dedicated to this park and the service they provide. The check-in staff are friendly and helpful and take you to your cabin. They have information about local attractions, provide any information that you need but don't pester you. In school holidays there is a nightly movie... More

Another wonderful weekend away with great friendly staff, clean and tidy cabins. We always enjoy the stay here. Have already booked and paid a deposit for next year. Not to far out of the main ballarat shopping areas with Lucas shopping basically across the road.

We have been here a few times in recent years, and have always been impressed with the warm welcome and great assistance of staff.

We loved this park - efficient and welcoming when we arrived. Our cabins was great - clean and tidy and had everything we needed. We also visited friends larger cabins which were also excellent. The kids absolutely loved the bouncy pillow, the electronic light game and the heated indoor swimming pool - definitely required this chilly September. Thanks so much... More

Hi Jo I Thank you for your very kind review. We really appreciate it. I have passed over your lovey comments to the housekeepers re: how clean the cabins are. They do an amazxing job.

We stayed here in the middle of a flying visit to Victoria (from SA) for a sporting event and this Holiday Park had all we needed.

We had a one night stopover but we wished we could stay longer. Great facilities! The pool is one of the best I have seen in a park. Excellent cabins. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed for 2 nights in winter with our 2 boys (1 teenager, 1 younger) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The indoor heated pool/splash pad was an absolute hit with our boys, as was the "Nios" activity on the indoor sandpit. Our Swagman cabin was clean and perfect for our stay of a couple of nights.
