Just wanted somewhere close the CBD without having to deal with Melbourne traffic. This was perfect for us. Really friendly welcome. Clean, hot showers. Heated floor tiles in the bathroom. That was unusual. Right under the flight path but you know what...it wasnt an intrusion. We purchased the necessary "Myki" bus tickets from the office which you need for travelling... More

Good park that's convenient to ferry and bus 220 takes you to the city from the stop across the road use your 'myki' card and it makes things easy for all your public transport needs. But, if you're near the road don't forget this is essentially light industrial area so there're trucks lots of them and many use engine brakes... More

The park itself is tidy and well maintained. We had a new 2 bedroom cabin which was very well equipped and comfortable for 5. The kids liked the pool. Our first night was a sunday and the planes were unbelievable as its on the flight path every 3-4 minutes! They did settle down eventually but its very loud. Location is... More

A large park, with many, many cabins and numerous caravan sites. Some sites are drive-thru and some reverse-in. Despite the very wet weather, our drive-thru site (bitumen and grass) was dry and we had plenty of room. The amenities were good, clean and heated - a bonus in a Melbourne winter/spring. A supermarket and a small shopping centre are right... More

Stayed in the 3 bedroom townhouse which is at the very back of the property. Good set up - 3 bedrooms upstairs - each one has it's own TV and split system heating / cooling. This place is a little more noisey than normal due to the echo of noise from other townhouses. Plus you hear car doors banging a... More

We have stayed at this park (on a powered caravan site) on numerous occasions and love it because of the great location, friendly staff and the clean and well maintained facilities. There is a supermarket next door and the bus stop to go to the CBD (just 20-30min journey) is across the road from the front entrance. Once inside the... More

Near to Port Melbourne for Tassie ferry with a shopping center with take away shops available too right next door, this park is an absolute gem. Neat beautifully manicured gardens and surprisingly well appointed self contained cabins.

Great cabins, great activities to keep the kids occupied, great pool, easy access to public transport and only 20-30mins to the city, close to shops and shopping centres, easy to find and easy to use as a base to get around. Love the simplicity and quietness even though in a city

Easy drive in access for caravans. Heated bathroom was a welcome relief in July too. Disappointed that you need to book and pay to use the spa so we didn't bother. Overall a good clean park. The planes at 4am took a little time to get used to.
