We stayed at Cable Beach Caravan Park on the recommendation of a c fiend who stays there every year for about five months of the year. We booked in Sunday 15 Sept 2013 and departed. Oct 2013.
Pool area of park fabulous. Most unexpected and welcome. Ablutions always clean and site shade g.
HOWEVER it would seem it is a common occurrence that vans are burgled and at checkin it is not emphasised or discussed. Agreed, it is an 'open' park however whilst we were there we, plus five others, were victims of theft. So brazen that in fact in two instances the owner was INSIDE the van at the time: one taking a nap and the burglar actually entered the van and the other happened to see a black arm and hand come through the cut flyscreen and steal the wallet beside the bed. The owner reacted of course but the budglar was Gone, melting imto the darkness. Luckily the wallet was found next day in the bush at the side of the park with cards still in it.
In our case at sunset, our 4x4 was entered and a bag of change taken out of the consul. Nothng else thank goodness although valuable cameras were in there. They climbed in through the tailgate which was open because my husband had the engel plugged in to charge.
We had been alerted by our friends to locking our van up even when going next door for a drink as it has happened many many times in the past.
The police obviously were called but of course no action can be taken. Our bag of money we found by the fence at the back of the van as my partner went outside again (he'd only been inside for ten minutes) and obviously disturbed them so that they dropped the bag whilst leaping the rickety old fence which passes as the boundary between the park and vacant lot.
So BE AWARE!!!!! Lock your van every time you leave it and that means ALL WINDOWS as well!!!!!!
