Well taken care of, clean and well run. Nice pool and very good amenities. However I have got several things that I think could improve it, firstly that let van we only got 1 amenities key....irritating meaning you had to go to the bathroom in tag team. Installing keypads would make that a little easier Secondly the camp kitchen opens...

This is a hidden gem close to the city centre. The park is well looked after and very clean. Has a good size pool and a rec room that offers a ping pong and pool table. There is also a TV and internet room at one end of the building with a spa and sauna at the other. The cabins...

Booked a powered ensuite site for the camper van. Service was excellent when I arrived as they show you to your site. The park is clean and well maintained. The pool was nice and the kids loved it. The only downside is the local area (the road beside sounds like a race track) and the planes overhead but we already...

Stayed over the new year period of 2016/17. From our initial welcome at reception to the day we left 6 days later, we could not fault the staff for their friendliness and assisting us with any thing we required or needed help with. We had a standard room for 5 people with en-suite. We had a few problems with our...

Spent a couple of nights in a cabin over the new year period. Check in was very efficient and staff were wonderful. The park has a pool, playground, tennis court etc, great entertainment for the kids. The cabin was neat and tidy. It has easy access to the city if you want to drive in.

Having also travelled around most of Australia, I agree with a previous reviewer- this park is in a not very desirable area and requires a lot of travel time to get to anywhere in Melbourne. Being under the flight path is ok, provided you are aware of it when booking, which I wasn't. The traffic from the main road is...

We chose this caravan park as a stop-over before boarding a day sailing of the Spirit of Tasmania the following morning as we travelled from interstate. This place is close to the Station Pier (14k's) and has a Woolies and other convenient shops (bottle shop!) next door which was an easy walk. The Deluxe cabin we had was spotless, towels...
