“Disappointing”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Lady Manager very friendly and helpful.
Park was a disgrace. Concrete slabs broken and uneven. Being replaced by cheap shade cloth on ground. No paving in park.Park needs a good clean up. Leaves, twigs and weeds everywhere. Definitely worth what they charge. Moved to another Park North of City that was cheaper, much more modern and spotless with good level double slabs and paved.

Thankyou for your comments,we are sorry you had alot of leaves,twigs etc. during winter is the time of the year that all the leaves and twigs fall from the trees and with great regret sometimes unfortunately our staff cannot keep up with all the leaves. With all the different vehicles we have stay in our caravan park eg, camper trailers,tents we are moving towards more sites with shade cloth as they need to be pegged into the ground and cannot be pegged into concrete.

We normally stay at a motel on Great Eastern Highway as it is close to family and friends, but got fed up with the 'comings and goings' at all hours of the night, and the incessant traffic noise. After having people talking and smoking outside the room opposite until midnight on our last stay, then the neighbour trundling a trolley case outside our room at 3am the same morning, we decided we needed to find somewhere else to stay, so we could get some sleep and stay sane! Friends recommended Central Caravan Park, and as these friends are quite fussy and travel a lot, we thought we would give it a go. Linda (who took our booking) was very cheerful and helpful. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin which was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. It was very modern with excellent appliances, and had an efficient reverse cycle air conditioner which was a blessing on the morning it was only 6 degrees.The bed was comfortable with extra pillows and a blanket supplied. They also supplied towels, bathmat and a hand towel. Hubby liked that he could park the car right outside the door, which meant security and easy access. It was so peaceful and quiet compared to our previous hotel, thank God. Other patrons were respectful of the 10pm - 8am 'quiet time', and moved quietly through the park. We could hear some distant low traffic noise but as we were only a few minutes out of a busy city, it was expected and not an issue. There were birds and ducks chattering in the morning, but I can't see how anyone could object...it was lovely. Handy to shops, fuel stations and eateries, with traffic lights on the near corner for easy and safe access to Great Eastern Highway. You can also come back down the side street on the way home and in the back entrance. This was our first trip to Perth in YEARS that we actually slept well and felt relaxed, and we are DEFINATELY staying there again next trip. We couldn't hear any noise from other people staying, like talk or tv's etc that you get with a motel, and the tariff was very reasonable. Happy customers...thanks to all.

We thankyou for your kind review.We are very proud of all of our staff here at Central Caravan Park..With our 1 bedroom cabins being fully renovated recently they do make for a very comfortable stay.
We do have the Great Eastern Hwy and Tonkin Hwy within 500m but we are lucky to have the Swan River within walking distance and makes it more peaceful and quiet in the caravan park.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The staff at the park were really helpful and if you are unsure about anything you only have to ask... They spent time checking and cleaning the park each day and there were great facilities,, At the end of the day so nice to walk to the end of the road and be at the edge if the swan river,, lots of shops close by to get anyone you need and a bus service on the main road so you don't need to take your campervan into Perth..

From booking in to checking out this was a fantastic place to stay. The lady I talked to on booking was helpful and informative, she offered a porta cot free of charge when I mentioned a baby and was so helpful.
When our famly of four arrived we were pleasantly surprised by the lush garden and tall gum trees throughout the park- not often found in a loction so close to the city- if we were staying in a tent the shade would have been great!
The cabin we stayed in was a one bedroom with a sofa bed in the lounge area. Although the cabin was small it was recently renovated and highly maintained. The kitchen area was perfect with a microwave, stove and fridge. The bathroom was pristine and the beds were comfortable.

The campers kitchen was well maintined, clean and fuly equiped. it was a great area for people to socialise and chat. The grassed area between the kitchen and the heated pool was perfect for our kids to play and both staff and patrons alike were so friendly, our family enjoyed spending time there.

The location of the park was excellent- across the road was a service station, there were 2 large shopping centres only 10 minutes away and the drive to the city- even during peak hour- was only 20 miutes at the most. We found it easy to navigate around the area.
As advertised the Swan River is on their back door, with a beutiful walking path along the bank- a relaxing activity for the family!

All in all the Central Caravan Park will be seeing my family again- with friendly staff and cheap accomodation it is perfect for my family!

Accessibility to Perth was good, but there were major road works going on in jan and they were quite long so expect delays. 2 Mins from the airport so quiet noisy plus half a block from a major road. Was very glad the park had too many campers an we were given a caravan site (mostly concrete, some grass between lots) as there was no shade for campers. Kitchen wasn't too clean, but showers were. Pool looked good, but I didn't get there.

We thank you for your review, we are close to the airport, it does have advantages for us, on a still night you do hear the planes but fortunately we are the 3rd windiest city in the world so we don't get plane noise that often.
And thank god the Great Eastern Hwy is now open and road works have finished!!! We hated it too. It is a joy now we have 3 lanes to drive down, it's great.Hope to see you again at Central.

Our car was towed in to the park on a tow truck, we were suppost to be at the park in the morning but had car problems and did not arrive until nearly 7pm that night. We had booked the site and the park rang us prior during the day to make sure we were still coming in as they had no more sites left. I kept them informed of our situation, the owner Chris stayed back when we arrrived and even took our caravan to our site as our car was on the tow truck. On Grand Final Day there was a sausage sizzle, with sausages on long fresh rolls, onions, cheese, I was impressed, nothing was too much trouble for Chris and his wife and helpers, even when people came late, got up and cooked more snags ... the atmosphere was great it was all in the camp kitchen area, balloons and big screen tvs it was fun for everyone. Toilets were cleaned by a happy cleaner who was polite and friendly, toilet paper was a bit scarse at times but I can honestly say they were really good to us, even lent us a street directory for the week as our car was being fixed to help us get around. Did not hear many planes overhead, wished that they had sold some grocery items at the time like milk and bread as without wheels it is hard but, overall would stay there again.

Stayed here for four nights, family had their own camper so we hired a cabin...wish i had used a tent, it would have been better than the cabin. Dirty, stained carpet, torn blinds, back steps rotted away...at a $170.00 this was poor. Laundry was good, three new machines and two driers...think in the busy season it would be a "fight" for use of same. We stayed three nights in Busselton at the Mandalay (absolutely perfect at $123.00 a night) just no comparison...could not find a decent caravan cabin park in the Perth area...amazing such poor standards. Loved Perth and WA shame Perth accommodation is not so good compared to the rest of the state.
