Spent a night at the Holiday Park before going on the Forgotten Highway Adventure. Very welcoming host. We had a campervan and a cabin for our party of 4. Good standard of accommodation and all facilities were of a high standard. A well equipped kitchen has a very nice shaded outdoor eating area and tubs of herbs that we were invited to use (and did). We left our campervan parked there for two nights connected to the power for a very reasonable charge. We also left our overnight bag (with medication in) sitting on a table. The very kind hosts took the bag to the Forgotten World Adventure office and it was sent down to us the next morning for which we were most grateful.
