This is a Caravan Park not a Motel or Hotel. The cabin was rather small and clearly lacked maintenance. Floor tiles were cracked, paint off doors and window frames. Door lock needed lubircating although came good with use. Park amentities very good and place very clean. Tariff way too high for what you get. Have stopped in much larger and... More

We have been staying here on the odd occasion for years. The rack rate for a King Parrot Cabin is now $188 with mid week discount we were charged $155 For those prices you expect quality but unfortunately this is not good quality accommodation. The carpet in our cabin was PUTRID. It seems they are catering to Industrial workers not... More

Stayed in Lorikeet, which is refreshing because its layout is different to your usual cabin with a mezzanine floor for the two single beds... on the negative side, its ok for older children but an accident waiting to happen for young children. Downstairs the main bedroom has a very low ceiling above the bed which you *will* bump your head... More

Needed accommodation for a crew of 9 working in the nearby area for around a week. Had a mix of King Parrot superior, Cabin and caravan site. Facilities comfortable and clean- some a little tired. Generally well set up- we used the barbecue area several times which was good (need to be careful of changing paving levels). Was appropriate to... More

Arriving slightly before check in the receptionist was able to let us in early (about 30 minutes). Passing the boomgate and a short drive we arrived at our cabin. Parking was a tight squeeze - our driver had to climb out/in from passenger side. Cabin was basic and small. Table and lounge squashed together and kitchen was a struggle with... More

Stayed one night in the bellbird cabin. Cabin was neat and tidy. Wooden Playground seemed unique but kid friendly. Pool had some leaves in bottom of it. No net in old tennis court. Liked that the pool had a small swaddling pool for littles. Cars travel in one direction only throughout the park which I thought was a good idea.

Stayed here for two nights and couldn't wait to get out of there. Dirty and in need of upgrade, for the price very very very disappointing, really not any redeeming features. Supposed to be a lovely setting not sure where that is, but not at this grotty shabby place. Oven didn't work, carpet disgusting! No wifi

“The airconditioner is located above the fridge and cools the kitchen area quite well (it wasn't heat wave conditions though) but the main bedroom (very small) remained like an oven. If possible avoid a cabin with a large west facing bedroom window - the cabins I saw all had large windows to the west though. The kids bedroom - which we didn't use - had three bunk beds above each other with hardly any air space between them - I wouldn't put kids in there at all.”
