All in all a nice park. Friendly staff, clean facilities. Most sites have pads, some shaded. Nice pool, no shade. Not sure about dumping your cassette into the sullage drain. Unfortunate if the bloke next door decides it's time to empty his while you are outside enjoying your breakfast! We would come back!!

This a brilliant park, the owners/managers bend over backwards to make you feel at home. The amenities are spotless and there are enough to satisfy the clientele. Good value for money at $36, for a powered site for 2 adults. it was too cold to use the pool but it looked clean and like the rest of the park well maintained. There is no dump point but you can empty your cassette down the sullage point, apparently this is one of only 8 sites in Aus with this facility. I don't know if I really like the rubbish collection idea where there are no bins, but a single point (the back of a truck) , so there's no recycle segregation. These are small niggles and I heartily recommend the place for a week or more.

The park was full when we arrived however the manager/owner put us on one of the roads in the park and connected us to power for the first night and promised that we would get a proper powered site the next day as we were staying for 5 nights. Whilst we went sightseeing the next morning they moved our caravan onto a site and connected the power so when we came back we just had to finish setting up. At this time of the year this appears to be a regular occurrence. Very friendly and obliging management. Would stay again
