“Good amenities but very noisy”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

tThis park offers a kitchen, playground, pool and games room as part of the deal. The amenities are good quality and we found them clean.

The big downside is the noise from the Hume Highway which is only 50 metres from the front entrance. You can hear the trucks all day and night.

We thought a place at the back would overcome this but the TAFE runs industrial fans that are very loud until 10 pm all thru the week.
This is not a place to go for peace and quiet and you may find it difficult to sleep until quite late in the night.

Given the circumstances, $30 for an unpowered site (May 2013) is relatively expensive.

Park managers are pleasant grounds are clean jumping pillow great but lacks shade and pool terrific close to everything. That's where it ends for us booked a deluxe family cabin on arrival the cabin was stinking hot and was not aired out terrible smell from floor drain in bathroom was overpowering until next Morning when we ran the shower reported this but smell had cleared by that time and covering the drain made it bearable .Ok no1 very noisy highway out front made it hard to sleep with truck constantly on the move air brakes incredibly loud .No2 we had a deluxe family cabin far from deluxe bedding our queen size bed was sagging on both sides and rock hard in the middle pillows so thin even folding them did not help pretty much left us tossing and turning the entire stay which we cut short by a day in desperate need of a good nights sleeps .No 3 please be carefully if you have young children there are steel spikes sticking out of the logs around the playground several quite sharp would make a mess of little feet .No 4 the park does have European Wasps hanging around not something we would expect from Big 4 park quite off putting ,hope your stay is better than ours very disappointing visit all-round.

I stayed at this park in January 2013 travelling back home to NSW having been down to Tassie. It is a great place to stay, with well kept facilities, grounds, shady sites and helpful staff. Having stayed at many parks in cabins and now a van this park gets my families thumbs up. Brett and Shell.

Good clean country caravan park. Good amenities block, just recently refurbished and painted. Jumping pillow was a bonus for the kids, they loved it, as they also did the swimming pool.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money. We will be back again.

We were disappointed with this park, never complained about a park before but thought that being a Big4 park we assume because we are paying top dollar less our discount???? we are getting quality for our bucks. Not so here. Amenities were disgusting and dirty, cobwebs around the amentity block, grounds not up to scratch and permanent residents in rundown vans and buses. Not the Big4 we know.

, Manager at BIG4 Borderland Holiday Park, responded to this review, January 15, 2013
We are very sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with our park. As new managers since July we have been working hard to upgrade the park, but it all takes time. In Novemeber, we totally refurbished the amenities block, new paint, new doors, new vanity and got rid of the cobwebs.
We also got rid of the previous cleaners, who we found were not performing to an acceptable standard. We have also increased the cleaners from 2 to 4, and the new ones are doing a great job.
We have also worked hard to improve the grounds and we now receive lots of compliments, which is rewarding.
Again, we regret that you did not enjoy your visit. If you should choose to revisit us, let us know who you are, and we will extend a special welcome and make sure you are looked after.

We just left the park this morning to continue to melbourne. We stayed at the family unit. We were happy with the unit, nice and clean.nothingto complain about since we paid only $100 a night and we stayed only one night to break up our trip from Sydney to melbourne.

We stayed in a deluxe family cabin which can accommodate 2 adults in the main bedroom and 4 children in the second. Everything was clean and modern. There is a very nice pool in the park.
