Friendly and welcoming reception, generous and well defined grassed sites (the largest we've enjoyed in a very long time) with concrete slab for annexe. Power, water and sullage all handy. Amenities big, clean and modern. This is a huge park with many features which make it a resort. A very enjoyable stay; no dogs was an aded bonus.

This is a fabulous park situated about 5km from the town centre. The park is huge, but is really well maintained. Fabulous pool area. Nothing to dislike about this park, BUT as always lock everything up. I was the only van that I noticed that had the Waeco fridge under the awning for 9 nights.... courtesy of two 3 metre lengths of chain and 2 padlocks from the local Mitre 10. No issues, but did hear of other people not as lucky. Don't let this deter you, it is a superb park.

All the facilities you'd expect from a Big 4. Extras include nightly talks on topics of interest (star gazing tonight). We stayed in an ensuite site which was generously sized. Not cheap, $85 for ensuite site during peak period. Only negative was the officious staff member at check in - felt like we were getting into Fort Knox. However we will stay here again.

A very big park. Friendly and helpful staff. Most sites have annex slabs and shade. Good water, power, and sullage access. We were met at our site and assisted to park the van. Some shade to most sites. Plenty of room for parking your vehicle also. A big heated pool complex that was in use most days. The usual Big 4 play ground etc. Amenities are clean and sparkling. Most nights there is some form of entertainment if you wish to participate. Pancakes on Sunday mornings. The best park I have stayed in since leaving Melbourne.
