We (2 families) took the kids away for a night, we were a little early checking in but it was no problem the 2 bedroom motel units we had booked were ready. Kids got straight into exploring whilst the adults relaxed. With the jumping pillow, playground and games room plus the go carts we hardly saw the kids. The units... More

We spent a night in one of the standard cabins. It was basic but clean, tidy and warm. BYO blankets/duvet but I didn't mind that for the price. Sheets and pillows provided. The main amenity block had very clean showers and toilets. Hot water was great. The kitchen was tidy and clean as well but BYO utensils etc. Cafes and... More

Nice new cabins, clean and tidy. Close to town. Booked from previous park. When we checked in, we asked if we could not have one of the cabins that backed directly onto the very noisy main road as the semi trailers thundering up and down the road would keep me awake. Explained I was a light sleeper, and also the... More

Great place to stay. We had been on the road for 4 days without a shower so booked in. Amenities were of high standard, showers and toilets super clean. Laundry didnt take as long as other places. Everything you need and a short walk to town...super friendly lady on the counter. Highly recommend to all!

Great relaxing stay with everything you need. Perfect playground for the kids (and the adults!), heated pool, awesome private spa, games room, clean amenities and only a short walking distance to town. They also have go karts for hire around the camp which I thought was pretty cool. Across the road from Hislops which do amazing organic food and drink.... More

I could hear a bit of road/rail noise and being a duplex it didn't have much soundproofing between the shared walls of the adjoining cabin. It was acceptable for our one night stay and had all the basics but would depend a lot on your neighbours.

We stayed one night on a powered site and found the campsite to be satisfactory without anything being very good. All the facilities were satisfactory and the TV lounge appeared to be fairly new. The local town/village is an easy 10 minute walk but there is not much to see. The beach is very much the same as all the... More

I get that it's a little town in the middle of nowhere. But $170 for a motel room is just too much for what you get. In the night there is a lot of noise. Cars and weird sirens. Plus there was always someone smoking outside. So the smoke would get into the room. Cabins are placed very close to... More
