Stayed at this tourist park in one of the cabins which is called “Couples Retreat”, as it is a little secluded from the others, for 5 nights. The cabin is a good size, furnished well with king bed, kitchen was fully equipped, eating area, lounge, bathroom which was acceptable for the cabin and a small storage room where the wardrobe is. A large deck/veranda to sit amongst the trees which surround the cabin. There is no air conditioning in the cabin as part of the eco theme of the Park, however temperatures are cooler by a few degrees in the hinterland. During our stay the weather good with it being cooler than normal.
Received a warm welcome from Andrew and some info on places of interest in the area. The Park itself is well maintained, very tidy and is quiet. The car parking space for the cabin is a short walk, but not too far. The only noise on the 5 days was a band playing in town, (which is about a 5 minute walk across the lillypond), on the Friday night. However it did stop a little after 11.00pm.
Over that 5 days, it gave us an excellent base to explore the Blackall Range, or to just sit back and relax, and enjoy the peace and quiet the Park offers. It is very good value for money, was comfortable, and is a great place for those that just want to “chill out” and relax.

We arrived in our motorhome just after the owner had closed the reception for the night. Following a quick telephone call we were invited to take any pitch which suited us but she suggested pitching in the avocado orchard area - which was quiet, dark and a breath of fresh air compared to some bustling, overcrowded sites we experienced on our travels. Facilities were ample and clean. Wish we could have stayed longer during our route around the Glass Mountain trail. Very welcoming.

Firstly the positive: Thank you for allowing us to bring our small Jack Russell dog with us to stay in the cabin. This is usually only reserved for dogs in caravans. Our little dog stayed outside in his bed on the verandah and was no trouble.

But the cabin was a lot to be desired. It smelt very musty inside when we arrived and could have done with an airing out. There is paint flaking on the ceiling in the lounge area. The lounge setting is very comfortable. The lampshade on the standing lamp needs fixing so that it stills on straight. I knew it wasn't going to be a flash place when I saw that the lampshade needed attention. The heater that was supplied would not work until my handy husband emptied the water container, don't know how long the water had been sitting in it. Perhaps the cleaners could check it when do the cleaning each time.
The bathroom had mould growing up on the ceiling and is way too small. Perhaps they could open up the very small room by side it and make the bathroom a lot bigger and much more servicable. Close off the door that leads straight into the lounge area.
Very uncomfortable and the water in the shower is doubtful. Just didn't seem hot enough.

Was very doubtful of using the spare blanket we got out of the cupboard as it smelt musty as well.
The rest of the place was clean and tidy. The cabins are all under a canopy of trees with little sunlight to freshen them up.
There are lights that line the path down the cabin no 9 but these run out and you are walking in the dark for a very short distance but it is dark and dangerous if you were to be carrying a child or luggage to the cabin.
Wouldn't stay again, but would have liked to check out the newer cabins close by.

Room Tip: Don';t stay in cabin 9

I've stayed here a number of times over the years, most recently in June 2012. I've stayed in both old and "deluxe" cabins, and in the camping area. The cabins are well kept, but nothing to write home about. The camping area has lush grass and numerous ancient old avocado trees, and a covered cooking area with super clean barbecues. There's also an indoors camp kitchen, a bit of a hike away. The amenities block is also a bit of a way from the camping area, but they have a "family" bathroom attached to the reception. It's really just a regular bathroom, but there's the space to strip all the kids off and push them through in a production line, and have a proper bath if they need it. This place is excellent for small children, they love finding avocados and clambering amongst the trees, and a lake and great playground is only a three minute walk away. A few more minutes takes you to the library and cafes. There are also lots of short bushwalks in the area. There are some permanent resident vans tucked away in a corner, but these are also well kept.

We stayed at Lillyponds when they were recovering from the effects of Tropical Cyclone Oswald, but that didn't deter from our enjoyment. Our hosts, Andrew and Anna, went out of their way to help us settle in. The park is probably aimed at a more mature clientelle and playground facilities for kids are limited. There are a number of permanent residents, but they are quiet and friendly.

Bathroom and toilet facilities are spotless and well serviced.

It is a joy to be awaken by the dawn chorus of Kookaburra's, Lorikeet's, Magpie's etc. We had rain every day, but that was fine, it was that tme of the year, so rain was to be expected.

Wifi access is limited and digital TV signal very limited. The Park does provide aerial cables to allow access to an analogue signal.

It was a gentle walk to the local Pub which is renowned for its great value meals, and the bread from the local bakery was superb. There are many little eateries in town and others just a short drive to Flaxton and Montville.

The local IGA supermarket is well stocked and is open early.

For those who enjoy a bushwalk there are many options available.

We very much enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: If you have a bigger van, drive through site 4 provides the easiest access.

Unfortunately our visit to the lilyponds cabin was during a rainy period, limiting our time to use the outdoor facilities. Cabin entrance stairs were not within building standards as there wasn't any landing between steps and front door. Bathroom ceiling covered in mildew/mould & not the cleanest facilities. Very poor park map that was unreadable with guest bbqs not listed. Cabins are located near very ugly poorly maintained long-stay "caravan's/shantys" which certainly takes away from the appeal of the otherwise pretty park. Free wifi is apparently available in hotspot area in the park communal room if you can manage to access it- many guests hog the small space & wifi doesn't work even outside the door or in close vicinity of the location. No mobile service due to the mountain range. Location very nice though and close to the mapelton lilyponds park which is lovely with a fabulous playground for kids. Boutique stores and Cafe close by. I must add that I liked the parks nature focus and lists of resident frog and wildlife species- fantastic to see!
