Having submitted my recent report on this park I spoke with an officer from the Parks Div. responsible for the park upgrade. He confirmed the important news that the park is closing for 4 months from 26 April until Mid September 2016 for upgrades including the extension of the beach retaining wall, installation of new cabins and relocation of the office. Roads, drainage & trees will also be assessed. It appears that the new cabins will go at an angle in front of existing cabins (some are being replaced) and all waterside camping sites will be retained which is a big plus in this small park. If you intend visiting this park in the future I would recommend making reservations asap as it is often fully booked.

Reading through my last report on this park I can say that it's still as good as it was in 2014. This stay the park is extremely busy and full most night, including week nights. Park management have been extremely good in enabling us to stay on our booked site for a 4th night as we had thought we'd have to shift for the final night. Luckily someone cancelled on that night. For a 4 day week booking ie Monday, Tues, Wed & Thurs nights it is pay for 3 nights ($36) get 4th night free which is a fab deal. This time we have a site with low trees and with the height of our motorhome it means we need to park as close to the front boundary as possible, but the shade offered is appreciated. Free internet of 2 hrs per day for one machine is now offered, which is a big plus. You can use your own wireless dongle, we use Telstra and there are 2 bars so it takes a little while to get going, but once on, seems to operate ok. More cafes have opened in the shopping area since our last visit and the good Pizza shop is now located in the main drag between the Celebrations Liquor store and the Thai restaurant / Hardware store complex. Moobal Creek is still as brilliant as ever and crystal clear, a lovely spot to swim in.

Added Touches:- Fish cleaning table, ramp to water
Local Information:- Excellent pizza place opp park in Philip Street, also a good Thai restaurant on Coronation Avenue. Lots to see within easy driving distance.
