Manager's name is Brian and Jeanette
Brian and Jeanette are very friendly and helpful. Due to corona virus, they had already instigated measures so that caravans were on alternate sites. There are several deals for length of stay. Gravel sites are marked with concrete surrounds. The many annuals and permanents did not impede on the overall atmosphere of the park.

Liked:- The park is just one street back from the main street, making walking very easy.
Disliked:- In the evening, kangaroos come to the open grassy area and leave their "calling cards", which makes walking across the grass a bit hazardous.
Parking:- There is a parking zone for book in.
Added Touches:- Friday night is sausage sizzle and Sunday morning is pancakes- all free! Jeanette also sells lots of handcraft items - cushion covers, earrings and bracelets. Brian helped when we had a flat tyre on the caravan. He dragged round his compressor and then directed us to the very frendly local tyre centre.
