Gateway exceeded our expectations.....it was exceptional value in a peaceful, leafy setting. Check-in was fast and friendly. The park was busy during our stay, yet still quiet. The facilities to keep kids entertained are good.....playground, swimming pool, jumping pillow, tennis court and mini golf as well as a basic rec room. Our cabin was clean, well-maintained and comfortable. I'd definitely...

We stayed in one of the cabins and rate it highly. The cabin was immaculately clean and neat and all the furnishings were clean and well maintained. The beds and bedding were comfortable. The cabin was well laid out so four of us moved easily through the space. The location was quiet, although an occasional train passed closed by, and...

This caravan park is excellent, even in the dreary winter weather, it was still a lovely park. The facilities are wonderful. Plenty of play area for children. There is a beautiful pool and a heated spa pool. The park is very easy to locate.

Nice clean park on the edge of town, still close enough to attractions & shops though - 5 minute drive only. Cabins were decent & fairly modern & clean. Facilities were also quite good. OK for a short Ballarat stay.

We stayed at Gateway Lifestyle in Ballarat for 4 nights on a powered site. The park has 2 amenities blocks; one older with retro mosaic tiles but still clean, the other much more modern and appealing.
