Vic, Cohuna, Cohuna Waterfront Holiday Park

Date of Stay: May 2019 Rating: 3.5
This is a huge park, now a member of "G'day Top Parks" with many annuals, but most of the tourist spots are in prime locations on Gunbower Creek. We booked ahead but at this time of the year it would not be essential. As we were driving to Cohuna, we received a text message welcoming us to the caravan park, so our welcome was very friendly and helpful, with all details organised. We had a choice of three sites; the one we chose was drive through, level and well grassed, with no big trees (watch for corellas later in the day) and a view across the water. Amenities were spotless, with ample hot water. There could have been more street lighting for us oldies, but a torch does a good job. Powered sites are $31 per night (we paid $27.60 with Top Parks membership). It is a short walk to the town which has all the essentials.

Vic, Kyabram, Western Gums Caravan Park

Great park just out of town. Having a carport was excellent when terrible weather hit hard. We paid $32 per night for a powered drive through site. Amenities were spotless, although I think ensuites are the preferred site of the managers. The camp kitchen is a huge shed with lounge chairs, couches and dining tables. Outdoor free bbq and inside cooking facilities. Television. Heating has just been installed. A beaut spot from which to tour the area: Echuca, the Murray, Shepparton, Yarrawonga. Would recommend this caravan park to nomads, couples and families.

Vic, Euroa, Euroa Caravan And Tourist Park

Date of Stay: November 2018 Rating: 3.5
This is a very popular park since the new owners took over. The park has been cleaned up with new facilities in place, making the stay very comfortable. We were part of a group so received a group discount . Normal fee for powered site is $33 with Senior's discount offered. All sites are grass, with many alongside the creek. More sites are available across the creek but that is a longer walk to the amenities block. There is a great camp kitchen and a balcony area with a shade shelter area nearby. A sparkling new swimming pool is now a feature. The amenities are very clean with new partitions but, here is where they lost a point, the drying area is small with water spraying onto the floor and pouring through to the next cubicle. Wet clothes and shoes do not make a happy camper. Hate to say it, but thin 1 ply toilet paper is a loser too. However, this caravan park is an excellent one night stopover or a great centre to explore the surrounding areas over a few days.

Vic, Myrtleford, Myrtleford Holiday Park

Date of Stay: November 2018 Rating: 3.5
As I said in 2015, this is a great council park in a very popular part of Victoria. New managers, Karen and Stewart, are ensuring that the park maintains its standards. We paid $90, stay 4 pay for 3 special, on a powered site. Nearly all sites are grass with some being drive through, but to achieve this you have to drive over a gutter. Internal roads are bitumen which cuts out dust and the enormous trees provide great shade during hot spells. Amenities are very clean and the camp kitchen/bbq area is excellent. It is just a short walk to the main street

NSW, Corowa, Ball Park Caravan Park

Date of Stay: November 2018 Rating: 3
New, friendly managers are doing a great job bringing this huge park back to some form of neatness. Paid $32 per night on a grass site, which was powdery dust. Huge old trees provide lots of shade, but if you suffer from hayfever, the plane trees and cottonwoods are a problem. Amenities were very clean. Camp kitchen is centrally located with 2 bbqs outside. Wire fencing surrounds the park with pincodes for the gates (which several local lads seemed to know). The annual sites look very rundown with huge mouldy flyovers and junk in the entrances. Location is a great, just a 5 minutes walk to town.

Vic, Corryong, Colac Colac Caravan Park

Date of Stay: November 2018 Rating: 3.5
Great park with huge shady trees, which are cooling in summer heat - not so good in pouring rain! Paid $33 per night powered site on a concrete slab (one of few). Most sites are green grass. Staff are friendly and helpful, having excellent knowledge of the area. Two amenities blocks are spotless, being cleaned early before the morning rush and again later. The camp kitchen gazebo has 4 bbqs, tables and chairs and a TV. A beaut place to stay and explore this spectacular region.

Vic, Dadswells Bridge, Grampians Edge Caravan Park

Date of Stay: August 2018 Rating: 3.5
Lovely young couple have bought this old park and are doing a mighty job in upgrading it. We paid $20 per night winter rate on a drive through, grassy site near the amenities block. Amenities are old but very clean and have a push button heater for those chilly mornings. The camp kitchen/rec room is huge with a TV and comfy armchairs and a separate kitchen with dining table. Grass is well mown and new gardens are thriving. New signage on the Western Hwy is easy to see, but you do need to be aware of speeding traffic when turning. It is not far to Horsham, Stawell and the Grampians. This is a little caravan park with great potential.

Vic, Shepparton, Victoria Lake Caravan Park

Date of Stay: June 2018 Rating: 2.5
This Top Tourist caravan park is situated along a strip of land between the lake and the railway line, with no fencing separating the park from the surrounds. Along the lakeside sites, the pathway is within metres of the caravans.Though there are only 8 scheduled trains per day, there were many freight trains during our stay. A council park, the very friendly and helpful managers are doing the best they can with what seems to be limited support from the council. The amenities, which are kept very clean, need refurbishing. We paid $32 ($28.80 with TT discount). A huge advantage is being close to the centre of the city. Take care when approaching from the south - turn as soon as crossing the railway then do an immediate right into the park.

Vic, Murchison, Murchison River Road Caravan Park

Date of Stay: June 2018 Rating: 3
We were warmly welcomed by Dick, the caretaker of this community run caravan park. We paid $32 for a grassed powered site, drive through. Mostly friendly permanents and annuals, the park doesn't have many tourist sites but the amenities were beaut. The ablution blocks have been revamped with modern fittings and have plenty of hot water from 4 huge solar hot water units. There is a camp kitchen with an additional single toilet/shower combo. A very quiet park, with a walking path leading to the town - general store, post office, bakery, hotel and craft stores. Watch out for the fibreglass cows! A great base from which to explore the Goulburn Valley.

Liked:- Most sites are drive through. You can choose the type of site you want: grassed or gravel with shade cloth pad. There is plenty of room at the site for awning to be out and car parked. Amenities are spotless and cleaned twice a day.
Disliked:- Nothing to do with the park, but the local hoons like to speed along the riverfront road, which is behind the park, after dark.
