Just saw this park has been voted best in Australia. Well done!! And I can confirm I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I wanted something inexpensive: That's what I got. I wanted something close to the city: That's what I got. The amenities are great: clean, bright & airy. Been coming here for a few years, off and on. Very friendly & helpful staff. Great atmosphere. I don't usually get involved in online reviews etc but I feel the previous person has written a review that is unjustified.
Last time I stayed here was after I saw the previous review so I decided to actually ask for some of the things he wanted. Late checkout: no problem. All I had to do was ask. I stayed in a tent but if I was in a cabin I could have had a late checkout until 4 for $50.
I agree with the previous reviewer in one aspect: not recommended for a romantic getaway. But if I'm taking my partner away for a romantic weekend I'd do it with a bit of style... not on the cheap. Duh.
We went on one of the regular night time wildlife tours. Saw heaps: bandicoots, brush tail & ring tail possums. And baby brush turkeys, lorikeets & kookaburras during the day. There's a saying that comes to mind: some people can't see the wood for the trees!
I've stayed in one of their cabins before and it was fine by me. And I appreciated sleeping in a queen bed.
Look, if you're looking for somewhere close to the city that's inexpensive, clean, comfortable and something with a bit of space as opposed to a cramped motel room, this is the place to be.
And if you want a taste of the bush yet be close to all conveniences: perfect.
