We stayed overnight here on a powered site. The park is clearly set up for cabins, and they do look fantastic - the setup for camping is minimal (I think only 4 powered sites?), but the small camp kitchen is clean and the staff were incredibly friendly, going out of their way to get us a site for the night....

Check VERY carefully before completing your booking. We didn't. We looked at the photos and read some reviews and looked at the price and thought we'd book it. I added a comment when booking - there was room for a comment/request. When we arrived we found that the photos we had viewed were of the top level cabins - we...

This caravan park was excellent had mini golf course and play equipment for kids, staff were very friendly and cabins were very very clean, only issue was the main bedroom was very noisy to sleep as it is elevated and you get all the traffic noise from the Derwent Hwy needs double glazed windows and thicker walls to block out...

We have stayed at this Discovery Park several times in the past year. The cabins are very comfortable and clean and well presented with sufficient cooking equipment for family needs. Fridges are a good size.The cabins are roomy with good heating especially necessary because of Hobart's chilly weather. Beds have always been comfortable but the pillows are a bit hard....

We really enjoyed our stay, the park staff were very friendly & helpful, our cabin was quite roomy & presented well, the mattresses & pillows in the bunks only really suit bigger kids, our smallest found it quite hard. Location was good, not too far from Hobart, but still quiet enough to relax, the addition of some more things for...

Upon arrival at the Discovery/Big 4 I must say I was initially impressed with its cabins and amenities but their unpowered camp sites were a joke and an after thought to say the least. It appeared that there was some spare land next to the amenities block so they thought it would be suitable for tent sites. Vehicle access was...

This would be a great place to stay with...

Our room was very comfortable , spacious and located on the top of the hill which had a great view. We had full amenities, Gas Stove big Fright and included a modern washing machine. Recommended for a great cabin. It was very strange that reception closed a 5pm during our visit.
