WA, Westonia, Westonia Caravan Park

Date of Stay: May 2018 Rating: 4
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.

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.

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.

Vic, San Remo, San Remo Holiday Park

Date of Stay: March 2018 Rating: 4
This small park was not very busy during our two night stay, we were given a double site as a drive through but we disconnected to explore the area, particularly Phillip Island. We would happily come back except during holiday periods when the park might be a bit crowded for our liking. We would have extended but had already committed to catching the ferry at Sorrento.
Very friendly staff, no complaints, staff helped us at the site, staff explained park layout and facilities. Good value for money $34 for 2A PN, powered, shoulder season. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is very good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, no sites with annex slabs, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good laundry, basic camp kitchen, dump point, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, a few permanent/annual vans. No pool. Suitable for a week or more.
Liked:- Excellent location, just back behind IGA yet quiet, short walk to jetty and fishermans co-op. Nice green, level sites.
Parking:- Off street parking available.
Local Information:- Very handy to make day trips to Phillip Island, which was absolutely beautiful.

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.

Vic, Yarram, Yarram Holiday Park

Date of Stay: March 2018 Rating: 4
This park is good as per other reports, with informative and friendly management. At $29 a night for powered it is good value. It is an easy walk into town,Woolies and the old court house visitor center which is impressive. Pity we had just one night here, there is a bit to do around Yarram.

Vic, Lake Tyers, Lake Tyers Camp And Caravan Park

Date of Stay: March 2018 Rating: 4
We initially booked in for three nights but extended by a night, cost was $26/night with seniors discount for a powered site. We were down at the front corner opposite the pub and liked the site as we could access the basic public toilet just through the pathway to the pub if we were not up to the walk up the hill to the refurbished amenities, which are very nice. The park was nice and peaceful, just the sound of the waves, and excellent value. St Pats was the only night we had noise from the pub (to be expected with a live band), and this ceased at 11pm. We would happily return to this park if back down this way. Tip: the local store across the road also does great take always at a good price.

Vic, Marlo, Marlo Caravan Park And Motel

Date of Stay: March 2018 Rating: 4
We had not realised it was the labour day weekend in Victoria and after being informed of this at Cann River we immediately rang and booked for a full week - $205 including Kui members discount. I generally would agree with the other positive reports of this park, it was good value when you consider the long weekend component. The only improvements I would like to see would be an additional stall or two in the male toilet (two is not really adequate at busy times), and a privacy screen at the dump point as it is just outside the laundry.

Qld, Clairview, Barracrab Caravan Park

Date of Stay: October 2017 Rating: 4
I have given a 4 for the absolute beachfront unpowered site that we had for $25 for one night. The amenities were okay, but we used our onboard shower and had plenty of our own drinking water, so it was all about the beautiful view and cool breeze. Had we stayed a few more nights (and we wished we could have), we would have tried the bar as the food and drinks were quiet reasonable in price. The powered sites are a bit squishy for our liking. Some train and truck noise reached us, but not enough to concern us. We arrived on high tide and it was spectacular, the low tide is not so great to look at but provides a good contrast.
