We stayed here in one of their 3 bedroom/2 bathroom cabins as a family of five. The cabin was nearly brand new, clean tidy and well equipped!! Basically like the whole park it was well maintained and looked after. The staff were friendly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Will be back for sure!!

Just finishing up 9 days here tomorrow. Had a lovely time, so clean and really friendly helpful staff. We were in our caravan so can't comment on the units or villas, but if the rest of the park is anything to go on I am sure you won't be disappointed. The park was full of Grey Nomads, keeping warm for... More

Fortunate enough to stay in an ensuite site. Seems to very popular with grey nomads, and there is a little community between the regulars. Kids loved the interactive 'spider web' as well as the playground. Was a bit too cool for us to venture into the pools, but saw couple of sports teams using the pools...

A nice pleasant park. Only stayed one night so can't comment too much. We had an ensuite cabin which was clean and the price was reasonable. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice gardens surrounding the park. This park is about 5-10 minutes drive from the jetty.

Well set out caravan park with excellent amenities that are always clean, however the continual planting of palms will restrict caravans getting onto their site especially if very large caravans are directly opposite as the roadways are somewhat narrow. With 160 sites and or units a service missing is their are no newspapers available for sale. One other small criticism,... More
