The unpowered sites are down the back of the park near the camp kitchen and one of the amenities blocks. The cleanliness of the amenities is excellent and the camp kitchen is fully...

There were not many available choices on the night we got there, but we were very happy to stay there. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, however the single bed in the second bedroom would be unsuitable for anybody of more than a short size. Also because it was stuck against 2 walls, it was a little squeezy for...

We walked across the old rail bridge into town it takes about 40 mins all up. There are take away shops and supermarkets within a 5/10 min walk...

Stayed here on a powered site in our caravan on our way up north and on the way back. It's ok for a night or two. Just make sure you request a site or cabin away from the main road. The road trains get very loud. The site we were on was dirt. There are some gravel sites. The amenities...
