“Great for families”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This tourist park is well priced, convenient to get around to places - easy drive to alot of attractions. The Cabin was cosy, clean and had good kitchen facilities. The pool was lovely and the jumping pillow was a BIG hit! Some staff were very helpful and others not so much. We paid for the Wifi for the week and we could not get a signal in our cabin.
We had a lovely stay here.

A useful spot to stay near family in Melbourne. Good location and price - and the cabin was quite decent - clean and quiet.
We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the opportunity to have a warm, dry and tidy place to return to. The park was quiet when we stayed and the in cabin amenities more than adequate for our needs.

Room Tip: All the cabins seemed Ok

We stayed in one of their "creek side" 2 bedroom cabins and were exceptionally happy with the cabin and the overall facilities. Being off season, the park was relatively quiet - maybe it would be different during school holidays.

Our stay was 6 nights and fresh towels (only main towels) not bathmat etc were provided after the 4th night. The laundry facilities were fine. The washing machines were $4 and dryer 41 for 14 minutes. Clothes lines were available. We thought it novel to be visited by some ducks in the morning (one actually tapped on the glass door reminding us it was feeding time). However, they poo everywhere on your verandah which needs to be rinsed each morning. We only fed them once!

The common BBQ area was also well laid out. Being winter, our friends were reluctant to join us but it was delightfully warm under the easy to use overhead gas heaters.

There was a small shop on site for basic items.

The main criticism I had was that the car park space was dirt and we had a fair bit of rain. That meant sand got walked into the cabin which we swept several times during our stay.

The bathroom, like most cabins was very small so be preparred to go outside to change your mind. The bedrooms had limited space around the bed with cases having to be lifted on top of the wardrobe during the stay. There was no grill or oven, just a gas stovetop and a microwave. That does limit choices when wishing to cook "convenience" food in your van that needs an oven or grill.

Friendly owners made the park nice to be at. I'll return one day.

Room Tip: They might cost more but the creek side cabins are not so close together. Nothing worse than a row...

A great family weekend!!!!! The kids loved the face painting, coloring competition, scavenger hunt, Santa coming for a visit and the activities that was planned. We as adults loved the new BBQ area with warm heaters, the wine and cheese, table tennis competition and even joined in the coloring competition. The staff was very friendly and put a lot of effort in organizing the weekend. The cabin was a good size for a family of 4. The games room has a pool table,table tennis table and heap of arcade games. The jumping pillow was a hit with the kids. We highly recommend Christmas in July weekend.....

A great family weekend of everyone, Kids loved the face painting and Santa coming to visit. Us adults loved the brand new BBQ area with WARM heaters and enjoyed the staff and other visitors company. The planned activities and games were lots of fun for the whole family even the grandparents where coloring in and doing the scavenger hunts. Well planned and yummy food and drinks where supplied and included in the weekend. The park had lots to do for all ages; the playground with a huge jumping pillow was a hit for our kids, just across from our cabin. We did not think of taking bikes, but was pleasantly surprised when they had Hire bikes available for the whole family (even one with training wheels for our youngest). The park was VERY clean and SAFE and the Staff where very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend going and visiting.
Best of all we WON the raffle at the end of the weekend for two night accommodation back at the park. We look forward to going back and having lots more fun.

We needed a park close to our relative's home. I was delighted to find that the walking path which starts just outside the park lead me on a pleasant bushland walk all the way to Reynolds Rd and Springvale Rd intersection. The other way you can walk through bushland and open country to the Yarra River. If you have a pushbike or a stroller the pathways are also suitable. The park also has a bike hire. Although the park is an older park and some sites are quite small most are adequate for a 20 foot van. We didn't spend much time in the park except at night and I found it quiet and there were possums and rabbits running around at night. The birdlife was abundant and the staff feed the birds in the morning. The heated pool was quite tempting even in May but the weather was mainly rainy while we were there. The jumping pillow was replaced while we were there and there is a good childrens playground. There is also a playground across the road near the Nursery. Tha facilities and amenities were all clean and well maintained. The asphalt (gravel) caravan sites were ok in wet weather.

Room Tip: Advise staff before checking of your van size if your van is larger.
