Great park BUT, we booked for 4 nights with ensuite, get there to find we are placed amongst a huge friends group who say they come every year at this time. If the park had of placed this group together that would be fine, or if they had warned us we could have chosen another spot. They were not grouped...

Love this place have camped her three times. Soooo much to do for the kids and they had a ball and made lots of friends! Loved the swim up bar and the cocktails. Beautiful beach, fab facilities and immaculately maintained. Only negatives where I think there should be a rule about kids and lots of blow up inflatables in bar...

My two sons (10 & 12) and I recently stayed in a water spa villa for a couple of nights. Being QLD & NSW school holidays with Easter approaching, the holiday park was heaving with children everywhere. However, the facilities absorbed the numbers very well. All the pools were relatively empty, as were most of the facilities. It made for...

I had looked forward to camping with a friend at a dog friendly park. Sadly, there was nothing friendly about this place. Rhe "dog friendly" section was located at the lowest point in the park, where drainage was virtually non existent, so when the heavy rain came,: we were flooded. While staff were friendly and helpful, management were rude and...

Thank you for your review. I am disappointed you would write a review like this. After being told multiple times to keep your dog on a leash and clean up its feces. You still disregarded our requests. We had multiple complaints from other guests about your dog wandering around off leash and doing its business on other guests camp sites....

Very disappointing. Stayed in a Holliday Cabin with fan. In need of a good renovation! Furniture very very old and drab! Well and truely over priced. 4 adults and they charged an extra $50 per night for the 2 extra adults, even though it advertised sleeping for 5!! Bathroom so tiny you could hardly move in it and full of...

Thank you for your feedback. Our cabins are small and we usually don't recommend them for 4 adults. We recommend the 2 bedroom villas which are like a small house. I will pass on your feedback to the owners to help them prioritize refurbishments which we constantly do throughout the resort. With our location right on the river, we quite...

this park is great for couples or families, there's so much to do, lots of pools to swim in, games room, hire activities and a short drive to town! we had a powered site this time around with a toddler, and can't recommend it more highly. unfortunately we chose to check out a day early due to weather forecast, but...

This is the best park we have ever stayed in. We booked a powered site for 2 nights but extended another night as it was so good. Brilliant pools which are the best I've ever experienced in a caravan park/resort, great facilities, grounds and reception staff were all excellent. Located on the river with their own jetty (good for fishing)...

We booked a holiday cabin here and it was really rundown, small and unclean. We payed the extra money to get a 2 bedroom villa overlooking the pool. It was definitely better and was comfortable enough but I think the quality of the cabins/villas could easily be improved with an upgrade. When you are paying $190 per night you just...

You feel like you are in a resort while staying in a tent.!! Fantastic facilities, shower pressure is amazing..!! Staff were all so lovely and friendly. Swim up pool with yummy cocktails reasonably priced. Menu was also great we shared the duo sliders. We will definitely be back.
