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...

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.

We paid $176.50 per night and booked for two nights. It was a very nice modern villa. We were three adults and were told all linen was provided. Only one bed was made up and we had to make the second double bed which was underneath a single bunk. We wanted to cook hence booking self contained unit. Couldn't cut...

Great camp kitchen, heated bathrooms were a bonus, good amenities, booking experience great as they accommodated special requests. Easy to find from Adelaide/Ballarat route. Close to food, booze and takeaway shops. Can hear airplanes so expect late or early arrivals.

We stayed here in a cabin for 4 nights. It was clean and adequate. It's in a flight path so often quite load. While they advertised WiFi there wasn't any available. We asked about wifi, they wouldn't answer us until we had paid for our accommodation. We did not use any of the other facilities so can't comment on that....

It is thirteen years since we last stayed here. During that time the majority of spaces for caravans have had cabins built on them. It is now more of a "cabin park" rather than one for caravans. Drive through sites are limited. Anyone traveling East towards Melbourne, this is the park for you. There is no need to stay in...

We stayed one night with our caravan in a powered site before boarding on the Spirit of Tasmania to head home. Staff were all so friendly and helpful. We paid extra to be able to stay some of the next day as we didn't have to be at the boat until 5pm. Otherwise, they have a storage area for your...
