This is no longer a Big4 park now part of the Discovery/Top Tourist Group. All other information correct.

Convenient location close to shops and all main highways. We had a large drive through site, but the majority of drive through sites while long enough to remain hooked up are too narrow to allow people to put awnings out. Good clean amenities, very nice swimming pool with shade and seating. We paid $40.40 for a powered site for 2 adults.

A big park behind a high security fence. Pleasant staff. Crushed rock sites with a small annex slab. You have to park your van to the front of the site and the car at the rear. Very windy and cold each day. No shade. Clean amenities and camp kitchen. Dogs allowed on lead. There is a Foodworks supermarket near by and Woolies in town. A lot of locals hanging around the waterfront precinct. The Australian Arid Land Botanical gardens are worth a visit.
