Vic, Koondrook, Koondrook Caravan Park

Date of Stay: October 2018 Rating: 3
Small park at the junction of the Murray River & Gunbower Creek. Not a lot of tourist sites but they are flat & reasonably well grassed. Large rigs may struggle to fit. Friendly management & brand new clean amenities. Walking track along river with carved timber sculptures begins at park & is a very pleasant stroll. Koondrook is a former timber town & a quieter alternative to some larger tourist towns along the Murray River. Barham, 2 minutes drive away on the NSW side of the river is much busier & has more facilities/shopping.

NSW, White Cliffs, Opal Pioneer Caravan And Camping Tourist Park

Date of Stay: September 2018 Rating: 4
We enjoyed our 3 night stay, $20/nt powered or $15/nt unpowered. Part of the lunar landscape that is an opal mining location like White Cliffs. Obviously no grassed sites only dusty red earth, amenities are adequate, still $1 for a 5 minute shower. Camp kitchen very good. Caretaker is friendly & helpful, he said that the tap water was fine for drinking. The park was almost full to capacity every day & all were connected to the local water supply with no adverse affects. Enjoyable location to stay in the real outback.

NSW, Wilcannia, Warrawong On The Darling

Date of Stay: September 2018 Rating: 4
Our third stay at this increasingly popular park. Still a lovely place to stay. It seems to be slightly more upmarket on each of our stays over the past three years with a corresponding increase in fees charged. Grassed sites are a bonus in the Outback. Staff are friendly & efficient as usual. Staff seem to change on each of our visits.

NSW, Booroorban, Royal Mail Hotel Caravan Park

Date of Stay: August 2018 Rating: 3.5
Spacious area at the rear of the hotel. Not much grass, sites are informal & level. Limited powered sites. Amenities are rustic, but clean & tidy, plenty of hot water. Friendly staff, typical country hospitality. Hotel meals are good. Historic Cobb & Co stables at the rear of the hotel. Hotel is on the Cobb Hwy 50kms south of Hay. Long Paddock sculptures along this tourist route. This was our second stay, always enjoyable.

NSW, Booroorban, Royal Mail Hotel Caravan Park

Date of Stay: August 2018 Rating: 3
The second time that we've stayed at this historic pub with Cobb & Co stables at the rear. Friendly country hospitality, limited powered sites $25/nt, unpowered $15/nt. Good meals in characterful bar with small dining annexe. Large area at rear of hotel, no shade, sparse grass. Facilities are shared, rustic but clean. Interesting area on the Cobb Hwy, Long Paddock sculptures located along the route between Mathoura & Ivanhoe. For those that want to ''free camp'' there's a Rest Area well off the Hwy adjacent to the pub.

NSW, Byrock, Mulga Creek Hotel Caravan Park

Date of Stay: August 2018 Rating: 3.5
The second time that we've stayed, both for 3 nights. Friendly outback hospitality, good pub meals. $25/nt power, $15/nt no power. Large informal area at rear of hotel, plenty of privacy & shade. Red soil, don't expect grass. Facilities are rustic but very clean, great shower pressure, nice & hot. Aboriginal rock hole just a short stroll away. The best country pub experience we've had on our extensive travels. Recommended.

Vic, Quambatook, Quambatook Caravan Park

Date of Stay: May 2018 Rating: 3.5
Park is very tidy & clean. Sites are flat, well grassed & of a good size. Very clean facilities are all en-suite, unusual for a small community CP. Caretaker Norma is very friendly & a good source of information for local attractions. We stayed two nights, $25/nt powered site. Town is not on any major tourist route & is basically a farming locality. It has a hotel, general store & a museum which includes country artist John Williamson memorabilia. The park is one of the best small town CP's that we have stayed at. Well done Quambatook.

NSW, Kyalite, Kyalite Caravan Park

Date of Stay: May 2018 Rating: 3
At the rear of the Kyalite Hotel adjacent to the river, book in at hotel/general store. Friendly publican Ken. A very rustic, dated park with a few permanents, not a lot of tourist sites. $25 per night on power. Sites are rather small & would not accommodate large rigs. Lovely country pub with excellent lounge & nice meals. Despite our first impressions of the park looking a little ramshackle we enjoyed our 3 night stay. Fruit, nut & wine growing area & famous for Murray Cod fishing.

Vic, Echuca, Discovery Parks - Echuca

Date of Stay: May 2018 Rating: 3.5
Lovely neat & tidy park, permanents prioritized. Tourist sites are fairly small, flat & at the rear near the Murray River which to us was a pleasing feature. Amenities recently upgraded to a modern standard. A lovely park to stay at in off peak times, long weekends, Easter & Christmas would be mayhem. We paid $70 powered site for 3 nights, good value.

Vic, Rainbow, Rainbow Caravan Park

Date of Stay: April 2018 Rating: 3
This was our second stay at this small park run by the Hindmarsh Shire. Not really a very attractive park as there is virtually no grass, there is adequate shade though. Limited powered sites but due to the town being off major tourist routes they always seem available. A few permanents, very quiet & relaxing. Amenities are a little old but functional & clean. Laundry is small $3 per load of washing. Caretaker at the only café in town phone 0429069244, powered site $20 per night. A rustic experience but an enjoyable one. Friendly town folk, IGA supermarket, hotel meals OK, bakery, butcher & very cheap gas refills at hardware store. We'll be back again next time that we're in the area.
