Had our third stay at this fantastic resort. We stayed over the Easter break and whilst Halls Gap is an extremely busy place over this period, this park is so spread out that you just don't feel like you are living on top of others. Having said that we did stay in one of the cabins, and I'm not sure if those staying in the caravans might feel the same. There was nothing nicer than sitting on the balcony watching the kangaroos, emus and kookaburras all against the back drop of the stunning Grampians, one of my favorite places in Australia!
We had three children with us aged (5/7/10) to be quite honest I hardly saw them. They were either off at the jumping pillow, or doing the numerous craft activities on offer, playing footy, riding scooters, playing with the hundreds of other kids staying in the park. They do look after the kids really well, they let kids be kids!
My only criticism of this park is they have a wonderful new large resort pool, which nobody seems to use as it isn't heated, its quite simply freezing! In all our stays at the Park we have rarely seen it used, they have a second smaller pool (domestic house size) which is heated and all the kids cram into this small pool, its crazy. I appreciate its not a cheap exercise to heat such a large pool, but surely in peak holiday periods it could be done.
