“Reasonable place”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

I had no problems at this caravan park. The amenities block was very good, easy to get to and probably the best place for tourists in camper vans, who need to finish off their trip, return their van and fly out.

It's not especially pretty - it's a functional place, and for that I was well satisfied. The pricing was also reasonable. It is possible to get public transport, but first you need to do a 20min walk to the train station, which is fine if it's fine.

I found the management responsive and helpful. This is not such a good place if you want to settle in and enjoy Sydney for awhile, as it is a bit too cement-functional for that, but for short stays it was excellent.

We stayed in this park because of its proximity to the airport, accessed by train. We were also able to leave our caravan rig here which was one big plus. We ended up spending weeks here this year waiting for repairs on our car and were able to get out and about on public transport with relative ease. Yes, there are a lot of permanent residents here but we had absolutely no problem with them, The grounds and amenities are very regularly cleaned and maintained and we would happily stay here again.

This park is bad, bordering on unsafe. Full of junk yard permanent caravans. The toilet/showers are old shipping containers. The permanent residents stay up late drinking, shouting and playing loud music until the wee hours of the morning. It doesn't appear to have any management staff at night. We felt under siege.

I cannot stress this enough do not stay here.

We booked in here for two nights over New Year - it was the only place that "had availability", and it was conveniently located for our trip into Sydney on NYE.

Location of the site is good. It is about a 15 minute walk from the shops and the train station into Sydney, which is a 45-60 min journey into the city.

When we contacted the tourist park to see if they had availability, we were told that they didn't, but that they would find us a patch of grass and would charge $35 for the night. At this point we were desperate for somewhere to stay, so accepted these terms. But seriously, what were we paying $35 for?! All we used was the shower and the toilets...

Anyway, we arrived, were shown to our patch of grass (that was actually a parking space in a concrete lay-by!), and then we drove up the road to the shops. When we returned, we had lost our parking space - the guy had given it away to someone else!

In fairness, he found us another spot, but the whole thing left a bit of a bad taste in our mouths.

In terms of facilities, there was a kitchen, laundrette, showers and toilets, of which we only used the showers and toilets, which were not very nice. No hand soap in the toilets, and each unit was always dirty.

Reception did not appear to be manned during the day, but a phone number was left on the window so that you could call for assistance. When we checked in, there were four other people waiting to check in too - they had tried calling the number, but only got through to the guy's answer phone.

Would we return here? Not unless there was nowhere else available, but, at the end of the day, when you just need somewhere to park the van and crash for the night, this site can deliver that for you.
