We have just returned from a weekend family get away on Bruny Is, staying at the Captain Cook Memorial Caravan Park. We booked a 2brm cabin, and asked for a quiet location (which probably wasn't necessary being the off season) but were located in "Resolution" at the end of the row. Our only visitors were the ducks that arrived (much to the delight of the children) on the door step once they noticed we'd opened the curtains. They obviously know the cues.
The cabin was cosy, clean and tidy. The heat pump had been put on before our arrival to warm the cabin which was a thoughtful touch. The main bedroom has a double bed (with electric blanket) and wardrobe. The second bedroom at the opposite end of the cabin, had a single bunk over a double bed, and another set of single bunks on the other side, so could sleep a couple and three children easily. Matresses were all innerspring. Beds were comfy, though the double mattress in the main bedroom was very firm, but luckily we both prefer that to a squishy soft one, so we weren't phased. All bedding was supplied as were the towels. Kitchen has a microwave, a mini grill oven with two solid hotplates on top, and a large fridge/freezer. The hot water is heated by gas so no cold showers for the last person in, but there is a reduced flow shower head to conserve the tank water so rinsing shampoo out takes a bit longer than usual.
The beach was just across the road and we could listen to the waves at night. There is also play equipment for the children within the park. (Caution for families with young children though. There is a river that runs behind the park, that can be accessed by a few pathways through the bush. Make sure young children are supervised as they could reach the river's edge within a minute.)
Many thanks to the friendly and accommodating staff for making it such a wonderful weekend escape for us.
