Just 10 mins from Launceston Airport, this is a great Holiday Park. Cabin was big, modern and comfy. Bathroom/shower was spacious which would be fantastic for older travellers or people with disabilities. Playground /Air pillow for kids and I loved the wallabies just outside cabin door. Would definitely stay again next time we are in Launceston.

Thank you for your review. We now have 2 'all access' cabins which are fully compliant for disabled travellers but also fantastic for the elderly or anyone needing a little extra space. We hope to see you again soon.

On the whole I though this camp site was very good. We stayed for three nights and it was fine for that. It has been undergoing a re-vamp over the past few years and you can see the difference where they are investing money. The new amenities block is superb, could not fault it in the slightest. Great showers, very...

Thank you for your honest and accurate review Rob. You are correct that the camp kitchen etc are yet to be redeveloped. The park, when purchased 2 years ago, was in a very bad state and a lot of infrastructure (power, water etc) had to be renewed first. Unfortunately this has delayed the development but we are all working as...

Fantastic, well appointed near new villa cabin. Wendy and her team were extremely helpful. Very thoughtfully allowing us a very early check-in after a very rough / sleepless crossing on the Sprit of Tassie.

Thank you for your review. It is a shame that you didn't stay for 3 nights as the rate is cheaper for the longer stays. Our reception is open from 8.30am to 6pm which is 9.5 hours for guests to come in and get any tourist information, make bookings etc. Our website is available 24 hours to make any bookings...

We stayed here for the second time a couple of weeks ago. It was great to revisit the park and see the progressive upgrade. It is going to be a wonderful park by the time all the upgrades are complete. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Was interested to see what this was like as there was a number of less than positive reviews. On arrival friendly efficient staff, asked to change sites - no problem. Facilities really modern, clean and well designed. Large flat tree sheltered site no problem getting pegs in. Highway noise not really a problem. But with any site so close to...

Thank you Tom for your review. Our reviews do make interesting reading as they are extreme - maybe they are a reflection of the reviewers and the 'glass half full' scenario.

We stayed in a City Villa & it was superb! So well equipped & really well insulated. Loved it ! And the kindness of a box of shortbread on arrival was very much appreciated. But as with most places of excellence the strength lies in the staff. They were so friendly and helpful and chatty. Time spent in reception was...

We stayed here for four nights, a family of two adults and two boys aged 7 and 9. Boys loved the jumping pillow, but other Big 4 parks with the water features are their favourite. I'm pretty sure that's in the pipeline (no pun intended) , and will certainly be a draw-card to an already nice place. A quick walk...

Thank you for your review. An indoor pool is on the plans but will be a few years away as the rest of the facilities need to be brought up to scratch first.

The staff went out of their way to help us, and had great suggestions on activities to do that were suitable for our family whilst in Launceston. The new amenities block is kept immaculate and the brand new villa was lovely. We cannot wait to come back and see all of the new improvements that are planned for this park.
