Visited here last August whilst on way home from WA. Wanted to come back before Christmas. It is a great park to stay with everything you would want for either just a couple or for a family. Particularly suited to children with bikes, jumping mats, indoor play area and also a super inbuilt heated swimming pool with spas etc. Pancakes...

Caravan park was a lovely 2 night stay. Indoor pool and spa was a hit with 3 young boys. Couple of downsides is the gym is not well maintained and full of dust so i couldnt use it and it doesnt open until 830. Childrens playground isnt as nice as it looks in the picture. I loved the family bathroom...

Hi Rebekah R Thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback. We really appreciate it. I have absolutely taken on board your comments re: the gym and it is certainly not our intention to make this the 'forgotten' part of our park by any means. We will certainly make this a priority. Unfortunately, because our staff don't...

As a company, our employees travel a lot for work, a motel is not a very nice option as it is pretty much four walls which is why we go for a caravan park cabin as it gives a little more room and facilities for making lunch and cooking dinner. So finding a caravan park that goes above and beyond...

Hi Jenelle M Thank you for your very kind feedback. Ah yes, the chooks....they certainly love when the guests give them food scraps. When we let them out, it's funny top watch them strutting around the park visiting our guests at their cabins/powered sites. If you are not expecting them and look around...well....a chook is not something you would expect...

We stopped by to visit friends who were staying at this park and ended up staying overnight. Our kids loved the jumping pillow, computer games, indoor playground, swimming pool with the giant screen TV and the go karts. This is a great park and we had a ball, fantastic if you're looking for a good family place.

We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful staff member who showed us to our choice of camping spots. Made use of the kitchen facilities. The indoor heated pool was fantastic and clean. Great kids play area inside and out. Spacious showers and the added bonus of a family bathroom all with heating. Pleasant stay
