Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I, towing a caravan, stayed on a large site with an ensuite. The ensuite included soap, hand towels and bath mat. The wildlife came to welcome us, brush turkeys, ducks and kangaroos, and the birds sang a chorus. We had a meal in the cafe which was delicious. Kids will enjoy the pool and waterslide and ride their bikes everywhere. There are go carts for hire. And a bowling green and small golf course.

The most family friendly park. The activities for everyone are boundless. We had the use of an ensuite site. The bathroom was really large, they included a hand towel face washer bathmats and hand soap. But best of all the water was hot and there was a heat lamp, it was a really cold evening. The site was really large and easily accessible. The park has a very large green space where kangaroos freely roam. The pool,spa, jumping pillow, bowling green, outdoor tv screens and live entertainment area helped to make our stay very memorable. We are dinner in the onsite restaurant. We enjoyed panko Schnitzel and salad and chicken parmigiana and salad. There was also a pasta van, but I don't know how often they are there. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Great place to gather in groups.

We stayed here for a couple of night on a powered slab. Check-in was done by a very friendly lady. Park seemed to be very clean and covered in trees, but also in kangaroos, of which the latter was a totally new experience for us. A lot of birds present as wel. Could easily say that there were so much animals around that it almost felt as camping in the wild or part of a safari. Amenities were really nice and clean. Park is close to the beach. Total recommendation!

This Park is a great place to stay, for adults and kids. Hubby n I have stayed here before in our own caravan, this time we're in a lagoon villa, which is delightful. Clean, comfy, well laid out. Easily suit family 2A + 2C. 4 adults ok if 2 don't mind bunk beds. Restaurant, 9 hole golf, bowls green, easy access to beach. Check in easy, staff friendly. Only negative is having to book thru call centre who tried to up sell me and was quite rude

This holiday village is an amazing place to base yourself. It starts with the check in, easy with pleasant front office staff. We booked a lagoon view cabin and it was fantastic. Well maintained and very clean with all the facilities you could need. It was great to sit out on the verandah with a morning coffee and watch the kangaroos come ring up to the cabin. The facilities at this park are excellent. Great place to stay and highly recommended.

This park is very large so it’s assumed there are a lot of kids around. Checking in was great, the receptionist was lovely, informative and quick. There were a lot of available spaces but everyone had been placed next to each other one after another instead of spreading out. I was a single person surrounded by two families, each with three screaming children scooting into my tent. The pool was chaotic. Two pools basically for children only. It would be nice to have one pool for children and one for adults, but they were both ruled and filled to the max with screaming children. Between the extremely over cooked steak, dry chips, the staff member and chef flirting, and the yelling from staff members, the restaurant was not one to return to. This is a good place for excited and loud families, but definitely not one to attend otherwise.

We liked this holiday park. Villas were clean. A walk to the beach. Kids loved the pool and waterslides. Needs improvements...My son hired a bike and it broke. This happened 3 times so he gave up. There's no TV or pay tv in the bedrooms and For the price of the lagoon villas. There no life guard at the pool and sometimes no parental supervision. I saw two kids trying drown each other. The internet is terrible.

This park would have to be the best park we have visited The staff were extremely friendly and were more then happy to help with our enquires. From the reception staff, kids club leaders, groundsmen and cleaners…..we were always greeted with a friendly smile and hello The surrounds are neat and clean, and home to a wide variety of wildlife. Beach is within walking distance We were pleasantly surprised to see such a full schedule in the kids club, even though we were there outside of school holidays. So much to keep the kids entertained The restaurant meals were delicious. Great service and quality food The splash park and pool are suitable to all ages and there is plenty of room to kick back and relax Cabins were neat, tidy and modern Will definitely be visiting again and highly recommend
