we were blow in and Tammy advised she did not have any sites apart form ones they were resting after a fair bit of rain, she advised us to go have a look first and see what we thought. The ground had drained away nicely so we moved onsite. What a lovely invite into the park, lots of information and... More

A friendly greeting on arrival, receptionist very helpful with an abundance of local information, the groundsman assisting onto the site, shady trees and grassy sites, unisex toilets by way of each personal locked room with toilet, shower and handbasin in the amenities block, cabins, laundry, shop if required. Short walk into town about 1 km and quiet. If this way... More

We recently stayed in this caravan park for five nights. The park was well maintained and the amenities block was kept very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this park. Lovely park in a great spot.

Our family stayed here for 2 nights as part of a 10 week caravaning adventure. This is a lovely park in a good spot, where you can walk into town if you're feeling energetic. Our site was generous and we were able to drive through. There is a really nice pool for the kids that they used both days. The... More

Travelled from Cape Trib via Bloomfield Track and didn't feel like making the return journey the same day. Very lucky to get one of the last sites late in the day. Very helpful and friendly service. The only slight dent was the midgies and mosquitos from the river. Special commendation for unisex (very clean) bathroom cubicles!

This is a typical Big4 park filled with people that can't leave anything at home such as their TV's, microwaves and air-conditioners in their oversized caravans. After weeks of remote camping we felt very crowded and really disliked being next to a chain smoker who had an air conditioner unit that was created more noise than a generator. Every evening...

I loved the park because it was very easily accessible. The pool and dining area was AMAZING!!! The pool had shade clothes, so I didn't get burnt, or to hot either. The dining area was really good with a flat screen t.v and lots of tables and chairs. There were 2 bbqs and lots of bins. If you are going... More

Having paid $140 for a night we were disappointed to find the bathroom not cleaned properly with a previous guest black hair in basin and shower tiles with red dirt. The fan could only be put on low speed due to the rattle noise it made. However the double bed was comfy. We asked to use the car wash and... More

Do NOT book site 49 or anything near it - right next to dustbins / dump point / toilet block- people emptying cans and bottles into recycle bins at 6.30 am followed cars pulling up to the dump point !!!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our Park. Unfortunately, I believe you have noted an incorrect site no to start. Our Bins & Dump Point are located at the Toilet Block at the back of sites and well divided by rows of palms - there are different Bin sites throughout the park which is a necessity. Unfortunately...
