This place needs more than TLC, it requires complete refurbishment and repairs. Our cabin was a box with water (only cold) and the bare minimum kitchen supplies. This was ok; we could live...

We arrived and we're pleased with reception and the state is the place, kept up well. Amenities were always clean and the gazebo/kitchenette was a great addition and a good communal space to interact with other travelers. Location is great, we walked into town every day we were here.

We stayed in a self contained cabin overlooking the river. The cabin was clean and well looked after. We only stayed three nights as we were there for a quick getaway visiting family. Having four children it's hard to find accommodation for all of us. We will definitely come back to stay and use as a base to check out...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the banks of the Mitchell River at the eastern end of Bairndsale's busy shopping centre, Bairnsdale Riverside Holiday Park (formerly Mitchell Gardens Holiday Park) boasts one of the prettiest Parks in the district, well appointed and relaxing. Enjoy a morning stroll or cycle along the picturesque track that runs through the park along the boardwalk to the Port of Bairnsdale, then on to the Lind Bridge and return across the swing bridge over the Backwater at Howitt Park (a round trip of approx 5.4 km). Or take the nearby East Gippsland Rail Trail - as a designated "Rail Trail" it is ideal for cycling or walking. It wends its way through the towns of Nicholson, Sarsfield and Bruthen and extends as far as Orbost in the east. Motorcyclists and motorists will find this the perfect base to enjoy the array of excellent touring routes, whether into the mountains to Dargo, Omeo or Buchan, or exploring the many coastal towns such as Paynesville, Metung and Lakes Entrance. Why not leave the car at Barinsdale Riverside Holiday Park - we are just a short 500 metres stroll to Howett Park Play Ground, BMX Track, Boat ramp and skate park and a few minutes to the Bairnsdale CBD. Whatever your choice, Bairnsdale Riverside Holiday Park makes your perfect rest stop in East Gippsland. ... more   less
