We travelled as two families with young children (2 months, 11 months and 2 years), and enjoyed our 3-day stay in two cottages, about 50 metres apart.
We loved the comfortable the cottages (complete with toys and books), the large trampoline (about 2 metres/ 7 feet diameter), the small playgrounds (suited to younger children) and the swimming pool and spa set amongst the gum trees.
We enjoyed looking out onto tree-covered hills (rather than grass-covered pastures) from our cottage. Banksia park feels far away from the cares of the big city, but it's just a 10-minute drive to the Kangaroo Valley town (which has a few basic shops and cafes). We also enjoyed a day-trip to the town of Berry (about 50 minutes away) and doing bushwalks (10 minute drive to 1-hour trail near Tallowa Dam - flat; 30-minute drive to Fitzroy falls - first 20 minutes of walk can be done with a stroller)
Banksia Park is an olive farm, so don't expect to see many animals. There are a couple of pigs, donkeys and chickens, which the 2 year old enjoyed seeing at feeding times.
We'll definitely be back!
