We spent two nights at this caravan park. Quick check in and lots of information including maps and brochures available at the main office. The ensuite cabin was very nice and a bargain at 90 aud per night. Very clean and spacious. Nice kitchen and a comfortable sofa as well as table and chairs both inside and outside. Cable TV,...

Stayed on an ensuite site for 14 nights in august staff were really good always friendly no problem to change dates and extend stay. Park can be squeezy but park will use a tractor to put you on site. Unfortunatly this means tractor noise from early in the morning.

This was one of the cleanest, and friendliest campings we have visited. The camping kitchen is very large, and cleaned very well, daily. Visitors on this camping are all very nice, and it was fun to stay here three days. A bit curious, some hippies camp opposite of the park, just on the street. Though officially not allowed to camp...

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope the remainder of... More

We had intended to stay for ten days and ended up being in Caravan Park nearly a month as we have family in the region. There is a Cafe with good coffee and food on site, a bonus when visitors come.

A very pretty park with decent facilities. Staff great to deal with. Stayed 2 nights here on a powered site. This was our first park on our Australian holiday and we were off to a good start! A good base but a fair distance to shops etc.

This is a very nice campground, nice shower block although the water pressure was very low. Attractive grounds with lovely swimming pool. Modern kitchen/ dining area near pool. The site for RV was tight in between two trees which made manoeuvring tricky. The site was a bit elevated so the grey water pipe wouldn't drain into the outlet, therefore, we... More

Dog friendly! Amenities great, large and clean. Sites a little tight but not too bad, have stayed in much worse!
