Liked:- Situated next to a large State Park and the local Golf Course (scrapes and primitive) which provided a very quiet and natural surrounding with plenty of area to walk with the dog and to bush walk. I liked the fact that we were away from the hustle and bustle .. nice country atmosphere with wildlife nearby.
Disliked:- A little run down in some areas, eg, playground, one of the power outlets was out of commission requiring a longer lead.
Parking:- No problems
Road Conditions:- Good road all the way to park entrance
