These guys take great pride in their park, very spic and span. Very nice amenities, clean with bench, separate area to dry and not get your feet wet! Good hot water. Level grassy sites. Friendly hosts, greet you with scones, jam and cream for afternoon tea! Books and videos to buy, swap, etc. Happy hour around the fire saw about 18 people last night. Good value at $28p/n. Great place to stay and go for a day trip to the Warrumbungles and Sliding Observatory.

Sarah and Geoff continue to run a wonderful caravan park which attracts many grey nomads from the madness of the Newell. We paid $27.50 2A powered site, with Geoff guiding the driver. Sarah still provides her delicious scones with jam and cream as a welcome treat. It is always a pleasure to stay in this quaint little village.

Agree with most comments onsite. Have stayed here a few times now, just pop in for Sarah's famous scones and jam. Geoff & Sarah just seem to do everything right as managers. Great personality and attitude to enhance your stay. Happy hour is legendary here and great source of travel information. Nice quiet park.

I would just like to endorse previous report ( s)....Sarah and Geoff have " nailed it ", in respect to running a small town CP. Many other operators could learn from them. Great place to stay.

We heartily agree with previous reports. Sarah and Geoff provide a really homely stay experience, and it is well worth getting off the Newell a couple of k's to stay at this park for a couple of days. $27.50 P/N 2A powered, we chose a site with Sarah and she guided us in and she and Geoff farewelled us as well. Lovely. We had a site with concrete slab, others had lush grass. Scones, jam and cream delivered after we had set up and were delicious, as were the homemade nibbles we enjoyed at fire-side happy hour later. Amenities were spotless, well maintained, good proportions with lovely hot water. Actually the water in the park was delicious, with rainwater tank available also. Great TV and internet Telstra and Optus available (whatever reception probs in the past weren't experienced by us). Lovely and peaceful park, with its own fenced-in off leash section for pets! Sarah and Geoff will also organise pet minding if you would like to visit magnificent Warrumbungle National Park. Service or what! Town has a pub, with meals available around weekends. Small general store which also served petrol. Historical town walk was enlightening-again all locals encountered friendly and welcoming. Spectacular views of Warrumbungles from roadside lookout a short stroll from town. Sarah provides a book suggesting local drives and attractions. We can highly recommend the local emu farm. Very informative farmer with excellent products-100% emu oil (very reasonably priced) and emu meat products (tastes like beef, low fat and delicious!). Definitely worth giving Tooraweenah the nod for a couple of days or even for a quiet overnighter only 4ks off the Newell as an alternative to Coonabarabran.

Great little caravan park. Geoff and Sarah are the owners. On arrival a sign advised to select a site and set up. Later Sarah greeted us with a plate of scones, her home made jam and cream. They both have made us most welcome. The nightly camp fire, yarn and a drink is a highlight. If you want a quiet well run park well of the main road, dead quiet at night with genuine hosts then this is it. Cost $25 a night powered with two people.

Manager's name is Geoff & Sarah.
As described by others a gem of a spot. Sarah & Geoff have worked hard to make a stay comfortable. Best described as a good honest park. The jam scones are legendary. Happy hour is a fabulous opportunity to meet fellow travellers. Fabulous base for touring the Warrambungles and Coonabarabran. Will certainly drop by here to stay when we can.

All previous reports are spot on. It is still only $25 a night, for 2 people . Scones, jam & cream were brought to us by Sarah. Both owners were very friendly. So come on all you travellers, patronize these great little parks, it keeps them alive. We all need them. They are much nicer than the more expensive parks.

Upon arriving you are asked to select a site and they come to you for payment and given info on park a area around. Next you are given scones a jam a cream,gratis. Very friendly owners and they are very helpful. Amenities are old but very clean and neat and showers have mats on floor so no cold feet. A fire is lit late in the arvo for happy hour and owners bring around nibbles. Sites are grassed and wide enough.

Wow, this little park is a destination in its own right. The owners, Sarah and Geoff, are very friendly, welcoming you at the gate and providing scones with jam and cream. Campfire happy hour every night is friendly with Geoff telling stories and jokes, or you could be lucky and be entertained by one of the guests who is a country and western singer. Amenities are old but very clean and there is a pool to relax in. Cost was $25 per night, with a rewards card for follow up stays. The park is in a Telstra blackspot, but who cares? Day trips to the Warrumbungle NP and the Pilliga Forest are excellent and the historic walk around town is very interesting. A meal at the old pub is worth it. Sarah will also show you the orphaned joeys she cares for. A great place to take a break off the Newell.
