Another pleasant few days spent at this hard to fault park. Warwick & Lindi are keeping this park neat & tidy. $38PN 2A powered with seniors discount. Nice dog walking area near the dam at the back of the park with BBQs & picnic tables. Lots of workers cabins but all was quiet while we were there. Some sites now need ramps to get the van level. Free & extensive book exchange in the office. Amenities always clean & spacious. Chinchillas new Botanic parklands near the info centre now open & worth a visit.

As per previous reports. Workers & transient workers occupy a lot of cabins and leave very early in morning. Cost is $38.00 for a powered site (2 people) $34 for seniors. Poor night lighting and shower areas have no where to put soaps etc in shower recess. Evening meals still available in dining room. Neighbour told me they were good value for money. I don't think the price is justified and will stay at Chinchilla Showgrounds next time

Nothing much has changed in 8 months. Still a great stop over. Price is now $210/week. Park mostly caters for workers but was quiet while we were there. Weekly markets have moved from near the information center to the showground. Prickly pear and cactoblastis research hall, 10km out of town worth a visit. Small quiet town and a good spot to "chill" out.
