No room for boredom here. The kids were busy all day every day. From the planned activities which they looked forward to each day, to just throwing rocks in the creek. A great spot all in all. Great to have a restaurant/bar on site as well for us newbies that didn't fancy cooking in the rain. And really nice to...

We have been there two years in a row now in September. Perfect weather. Hot enough during the day to enjoy all the activities in shorts and a tshirt and paddle on the creek. Cold enough at night time to enjoy camp fires, marshmallows and pot roasts! Heaps of activities for the kids to do or plenty to do exploring...

This was our first trip to Bestbrook. We really enjoyed it. There was ample space for campers, there is a beautiful creek, lots of things to do for children and staff is very friendly and helpful. The walking track up the mountain to the nome cave was a big hit as well! A tip for campers on a cold night;...

Bestbrook Mountain Resort is amazing. The staff are amazing, friendly and patient. The surroundings were amazing, gorgeous green grass, forest trees and a running creek. The restaurant was fantastic, good country food. The kids had a fantastic time, feeding the animals, riding on the horses, meeting & playing with other kids down at the creek. And it was beautiful scenery...

This is about our 12th trip to Bestbrook and every time we go there is a little highlight that makes us keep going back. This trip we were lucky enough that a new foal was born on my sons birthday.

Loved the camping holiday, first with our two small boys. They thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities especially riding Lucky and Thomas. We will be back, next time please order no rain as the mud was a bit boring! :)

Bestbrook is a fantastic 'free-range' experience for small people - thanks for sharing it with us. We'll see what our connections can come with in regards the weather for next time ;-)

We camped on the creek for 3 nights. The serenity was wonderful. Chilly at night, perfect days. Our little children had a wonderful time. Animal feeding was a big hit. Adults and children all can get involved. Horse rides, milking and feeding cows. Collect some eggs and cook them for breakfast. Children's playroom up at the homestead/restaurant is amazing. We...

Good value for a family caravan trip, although a little more expensive than other places, this is more than made up for by the free activities (animal feeding, damper, whip cracking and boomerangs) which the kids loved. And a cool playground and walk to the cool Gnome cave. Caravan site was spacious with a good fire for the cold spring...
