“Holiday park or retirement village??”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

For a holiday park in a great location & advertised to cater for families; on arrival it did scream retirement village! It kind of felt like we were out of place until we saw some other families in the park. I can't fault the accommodation, it really was spacious and lovely to stay in. But there was a lot of construction going on which we were not advised about on booking. The kids enjoyed the pool and games room. Service desk was friendly.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask about any construction work going on in the park!

This caravan park has a large amount of permanent residents, and it is also set up as a retirement village. There was no jumping pillow or playground as advertised on website. Also lots of construction taking place for the retirement village and next door housing. The service desk was friendly and the amenties clean enough, but in our opinion it was one of the worst caravan parks we have stayed in, and would definitly NOT recommend it for families.

Enjoyed our stay here, book online and it's cheaper, we decided to stay a 3rd night and they couldn't give us the same price but still stayed as it was Convenient for us. We had to move house due to the last minute stay, but had no problems doing this. Rooms are clean and kept well. Work going on at the moment but it didn't affect us. Would stay again if we were coming to Sydney.

Great value and wonderful staff. So helpful friendly and thoughtful. The lodge is a great idea and the room was of a very high standard. Great facilities only wish we could have stayed longer. But from what we have seen all Big4 sites are excellent either self catering or if touring in camper/caravan.

Stayed in the Lodge. Really just a hotel room but with access to cooking facilities. OK for a couple of days. Only a small proportion of this park seems to be for holidaymakers, the vast majority are permanent residents.

I'm sure this was a great caravan park for a long time. However, it is in the process of being converted into a Retirement Community (i.e., building homes for retirees to live in). As a result, while the remaining facilities are very clean and tidy, several of the family-related amenities such as Playground and Jumping Pillow are no longer there (there is a public playground 7 minutes walk away). The pool remains very nice. However, there is a fair bit of activity during the day due to construction (working vehicles, noise) making it a less than ideal holiday location. OK for a night or two but really not much longer if you are in a caravan or motorhome.

Room Tip: There is a mall within walking distance (~15 minutes away) which has a Coles supermarket, and other...
