We have driven past many times and also camped nearby at beautiful Parnka Point. Curiosity called, so we went to see what this place was all about and whether we should stay there on our next trip. An awful lot of government money has gone into setting up the infrastructure there. (We also run a bush and beach retreat so know how much money and work goes into it). The setting is naturally beautiful but sadly no one is up keeping the infrastructure. Its like a ghost town, has rubbish blowing about, overflowing bins, unkept amenities for campsite, broken windows, screens, doors and lights. No one came to meet us so we just wandered about wishing we could have been given all this infrastructure for our retreat (restaurant, cabins, dorms etc). The cabins and restaurant look great, modern,airy, good views just unloved. Such a shame, it could be an amazing place if someone spent the time looking after it. It appeared to have been closed for at least 6 months judging by the state of the place but I see there have been recent reviews from guests. So we were baffled, is it open or deserted??
