We had a great stay here with three young kids. We stayed in a homestead cottage which was good, although aging a little bit. It was clean and had everything we needed to self cater. The facilities are fantastic and our kids especially loved the "kids club" sessions in the evenings and movies. It's in a handy location, fast to... More

We needed accommodation for a basketball tournament in Ballarat and windmill was perfect. Some of us had caravans and some cabins. We stayed in a Matilda 6 berth cabin which was very spacious. Being the middle of winter, the cabin was very warm with electric blankets on the beds. Our large group gathered in the games room which had a... More

This caravan park is one that just keeps on giving. Had a family reunion there last weekend and once again the service we received was fabulous. Our party of 20+ stayed in various cabins within the park and everyone was very happy with their individual cabins.

We had a great stay at this caravan park. The amenities were very clean and modern and the pool and spa area are amazing. The only downside are the actual sites which have very little grass on them and turn to mud as soon as it rains. I seriously believe there wasn't even 1 blade of grass on our site... More

What i hate in most parks is when you arrive , after you have checked in, they give you a map and say see you later. Not at this park, they actually walk in front of your car than assist you to reverse into your caravan spot, which is fantastic service, in particular for large parks, as caravan sites are... More

A wonderful caravan park. The ammenities are very modern, clean and heated. There is a great heated indoor swimming pool with spa. A gym and sauna. Great for cool poles or families. Very close to the new Lucus shopping centre. This is our third time here. It is the first place we book when heading to Ballarat.
