Decided to give a discovery cabin a try. Not disappointed. Definitely not the Hilton but very comfortable, well equipped. Comfy beds with electric blankets. Bathroom is clean with a great shower. No shortage of hot water. Full size fridge. Also has 2 heating sources. Electric...More

The only reason this review got 3 was because the bed was ok and the heater worked well, that’s where it ends. We got a “deluxe” spa cabin but there was nothing deluxe about it. The cabin was very tired and the floor was so...More

G'Day Nigel J and thanks for your review. Sorry to read your experience didn't meet your expectations. We have checked our spas and can confirm they do work without any issues, as for the cleanliness we will address this with our housekeepers to ensure they...More

We ‘didn’t’ stay here on Feb 28th as the state of the cabin wasn’t at all clean. The initial presentation on checking in was tired but we’ve stayed with Discovery Parks before (elsewhere) and tired has never meant filthy. Despite several left messages, we have...More

Typical park cabin. Due to a few minor things probably a 3.5 stars. Appears to have had a fairly recent refurb but still a bit scappy in places. Clean but not spotless. Bed and pillows were pretty good. Greeting was ok. Adequate dedicated parking. A...More

Fifteen minutes from the beautiful city of Launceston is Discovery Parks – Hadspen, a must on your Tassie touring itinerary. The peaceful South Esk River is a short stroll away from our caravan park and wineries, ...More national parks, and family attractions are close at hand. Before soaking up some culture at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, visit the stunning Cataract Gorge, beautiful gardens and resident peacocks in Launceston. Explore Narawntapu and Mt William National Parks, take a Tamar River Cruise, and taste your way through Tasmania’s oldest wine region, the Tamar Valley. Less
