NT, Cape Crawford, Heartbreak Hotel Caravan Park

Date of Stay: August 2018 Rating: 2.5
It was still just $28pn for powered site the night we stayed. Amenities are a bit stretched in peak times and flush is poor. Lots of leaves blowing around and into them. We enjoyed a swim in the pool, but it could be a bit cleaner. The grass and shade here is great. Diesel Fuel here was $1.89. We arrived in the morning from Borroloola and were given a good site on the edge of the trees next to unpowered. The place filled up in the afternoon. A new amenities block would see a higher rating.

Still only $32pn for a powered site, lighting adequate, dump point, clean pool, easy access to pub, which is also reception. At this time of year you need to arrive early as we were there before lunch and it filled up quickly in the afternoon. Sullage on ground. Bistro meals in pub reasonable prices. Amenities ok but a bit stretched at peak time with just two stalls and two showers in gents.

NT, Katherine, Shady Lane Tourist Park

Date of Stay: July 2018 Rating: 4
We had 3 nights at this van park and enjoyed it, despite the price being at the high end $47/pn powered. We made use of the swimming pool on each day. The amenities are good. Lighting is reasonable. Our site at the river bank end was generous in size. Television and internet reception (telstra) was fine. Dump point was well located and discreet. This park does not allow dogs, which is probably just as well due to Airforce traffic overhead during operation PitchBlack. This is a well managed park but we note that it is for sale.

NT, Daly Waters, Hi-way Inn Caravan Park

Powered site for $28 with a free drink in the pub for my wife and I included, was good value. We stayed in the new section on the south side which has newish amenities and plenty of space within its corrugated iron perimeter fence. The sites themselves by number are very small, if full you could not put an awning out, we straddled two sites and had a couple of sites between us and our nearest neighbour, so no worries. The noise from a road train running an engine for half the night just outside the park did not help our sleep. Our previous stay a few years ago in the older section, is more sheltered from such noise and has much more shade. This area was full when we arrived. If we returned we would prefer the older area due to the road noise factor. The roadhouse has a pool but the roof provides excessive shade making it dark and not inviting, so we did not try it. The pool looked clean.

NT, Timber Creek, Wirib Tourist Village

We stayed one night on our way east to Katherine. No powered sites were available at midday. So we went unpowered for $15. We set up behind the swimming pool with a clear view down to the creek. Other vans gathered around the trees closer to the road. The amenities were ok. We enjoyed a swim in the clean pool. Lighting is poor at this end.

WA, Toodyay, Toodyay Holiday Park And Chalets

Date of Stay: May 2018 Rating: 3.5
This is a bush park with real ambience, a few permanents at the front of the park have no impact. This place is all about the trees and the birds. The amenities are good and clean, there is a dump point. No grass, sandy base. Quiet park, no road noise but did hear a couple of trains in distance. $28 with Kui park member discount, good value for powered site with personal bbq and bin beside van. We would have stayed longer than one night except for a commitment which took us away. Definitely return if back this way.

WA, Kulin, Kulin Caravan Park

Date of Stay: May 2018 Rating: 4
Great modern park, well laid out with new large unisex style ensuite amenities. Unique park where you choose what you pay a night at the end of your stay, up to five nights. Beyond this period, a standard fee of $28 a night applies, we chose to pay $20 as we had just come down from the excellent Westonia park which charges a flat $15. We used this Kulin park as our base to visit Wave Rock, Hyden and surrounds. The only improvement I would like to see would a privacy screen across the entrance to the amenities which are elevated at one end of the park. While no dump point in the park, there is one just down the street and it is easy to access.

WA, Westonia, Westonia Caravan Park

Fantastic value park, $15 for a large powered site with slab, new clean amenities block, camp kitchen with TV. You need a sat tv here if you want to use your own set. Town and mine site interesting. A good base to visit surrounding sights such as Baladjie Rock, Elachbutting Rock and Beringbooding Rock. Pub serves good meals. The museum is excellent. Highly recommend.

SA, Ceduna, Ceduna Shelly Beach Caravan Park

Date of Stay: April 2018 Rating: 3.5
Quiet park on eastern fringe of Ceduna, new amenities block, dump point, beach a couple of minutes walk over road that goes to a couple of powered sites overlooking beach, that would be a bit exposed to wind. $34.50 for 2 adults powered, good size site. Would happily return here.

NSW, Bombala, Bombala Park Caravan Park

Date of Stay: March 2018 Rating: 3
We had two nights here for a very reasonable $26 a night powered. I would agree with all the positive statements in other reports. The only negative is the truck noise from the highway that runs straight past the park. On the Monday night the noise was a bit intense and we did not sleep well. Tuesday night the trucks were much less frequent and we could sleep okay. Tip- you can pay using your card at the friendly visitor center before 3.45pm weekdays if you struggle with cash, not sure of weekend hours.
