NSW, Hay, Hay Plains Holiday Park

Date of Stay: November 2018 Rating: 3.5
Small park with friendly managers and very green considering the area and the drought conditions around it. Some drive through sites, all sites are a good size, reasonably easy to get into, and were well spaced apart. Small swimming pool, clean amenities and laundry. Pub just across road did a good large dinner at a reasonable price. We paid $31.60 for 2 adults powered site with Big4 discount.

Very pleasant park on the banks of the Murrumbidgee. Some drive through sites and most sites were good size and easy to get into. Clean amenities in very good condition with large showers and plenty of hot water, good laundry. Nice beach on the river for swimming and boat ramp. Small amount of highway noise but wasn't enough to disturb us. Paid $30 per night for 2 adults powered site.

Lovely green park alongside the Ovens River, very short walk to shops in town or to the river swimming area and a childrens free water playground, and links to other riverside walks. Mostly good sized sites, many backing onto the high riverbank. Very good and clean amenities and camp kitchen, cafe being built above the amenities block at the moment. We paid $45.90 per night for a powered site for 2 adults, not cheap but in a prime position in a high demand tourist town.

NSW, Eden, Boydtown Caravan Park - Boydtown

Date of Stay: February 2018 Rating: 4
This is a very large park running along a stretch of beachfront. Most of the park is unpowered without defined sites but there are also powered sites close to the front amenities block. In February the park had about 20 sites taken, and the park felt almost empty, and it was possible to be a very long way from any neighbours.
Friendly staff, no complaints. Good value for money $30 for 2A PN, powered. Amenities are close to only some sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, very few sites are shaded. Basic laundry, no rec room, no camp kitchen, dump point, no wireless internet available., you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 3. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. No BBQs. No playground. No pool. Suitable for a week or more.
Liked:- The feeling of space, the park is really huge. The wonderful beachfront location.
Disliked:- Shower cubicles were so small that there is only a tiny drying area.
Local Information:- Dinner at the Seahorse Inn next to the park was very good.

Vic, Tarra Valley, Tarra Valley Caravan Park Fernholm

Date of Stay: February 2018 Rating: 4
This is a small park, and some sites are quite small. Our 21ft van was ok on a larger site. The road from Yarram is narrow in parts, you do have to take care. The road from the Traralgon end is not suitable for vans and is not recommended for any vehicle over 8m total length.
Friendly staff, no complaints, staff explained park layout and facilities. Good value for money $35 for 2A PN, powered. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, dry change area. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, no sites with annex slabs, shade to some sites, adequate taps close by. Basic laundry, no rec room, basic camp kitchen, no wireless internet available., mobile wireless not available. Quiet, adequate shade, a few permanent/annual vans. Clean UC wood BBQswood $15 per bag. No playground. No pool. Suitable for few days.
Liked:- Park is in a lovely setting, we were on a site with the beautiful Tarra River running directly behind us. Its more a large creek than a river and suitable for sitting in on a hot day though not deep enough to swim.
Disliked:- If the park was full it could feel very cramped. No dump point, no mobile phone or tv reception.
Parking:- Park across the road while checking in, the entrance into the park is only wide enough for vehicles going one way.
Local Information:- Tarra Bulga National Park is just beyond the park, with some lovely walks and scenery.

NSW, Wagga Wagga, BIG 4 Wagga Wagga Holiday Park

Date of Stay: February 2018 Rating: 4
Neat and tidy park close to the town, yet with a good amount of space and backing the river. Small amount of traffic noise from the road at the front but it didn't bother us and most sites are a reasonable distance from the road. Clean amenities in good condition, laundry facilities. Nice camp kitchen. Sites are all good sized gravel with gardens between sites. Clean swimming pool. Dump point. We paid $35 per night for a powered site with Big4 discount, otherwise it was $39.

Qld, Kinka Beach, Island View Caravan Park

Date of Stay: November 2017 Rating: 4
This park has had some significant upgrades by the new owners since we last stayed here a few years ago. The amenities block has been refurbished to a very good standard and was always clean. There are now 2 new pools, one of which is a family pool and the other is adults only. The gardens are looking very good and the owners were very actively maintaining the park while we were there. We paid $38 per night for a powered site for 2 adults. We were given a large drive through site, but some of the sites in the park do look a bit small.
