Date of Stay: August 2017 Rating: 4
park was hit hard by cyclone Debbie earlier in the year and the previous managers, in april when we wanted to book, were not too interested in providing info as to when it would be operational again. the new managers have done a great job in getting it going again. it will be even better when the council pool next door is operational again. park is quiet with the odd exception of a couple of train hooters in the night. no traffic noise at all.
