Staying in a cabin that highly needs a better clean it certainly needs an upgrade. I'm highly disappointed in the bathroom I've never seen so much mould and grim in my life, cracked power point, dust everywhere plus bugs stuck to the door! I'm not a one to complain ever but having a small child worries me when we paid...

Hi blp8380 Thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback. It is very much appreciated. I am very disappointed to learn of your concerns regarding the cabin you were in. This is certainly not something I would want for my guests. As you can see from previous TripAdvisor reviews, this is not something that our guests experience...

Had a great stay here. Lovely Cabins. Just there for one night as doing business in Ballarat. Could see that it is a great family park with lots to do for the kids as well. Pool, Jumping Pillow, great play ground. Gym. and Pancakes for Breakfast on Saturday mornings! Worth checking it out.

Cabins need to be updated. Great shower. Swimming complex a great hit with the grandchildren. Kids club was very basic with the boy in charge. Garden surrounds very average. Having a shopping complex nearby was a bonus.

Hi FrancesMargaret1953 Thank you for sending in your feedback. It is greatly appreciated. I don't know which cabin you stayed in based on your feedback and wonder if it was perhaps one of our budget entry level cabins? We have 8 types ranging from budget to luxury. Of course, while our budget cabins have everything you would need as they...

Hi Simon W Thank you for your wonderful feedback. It is very much appreciated. To say it was probably the best Caravan park you have been to is music to my ears. What a lovely thing to say.

What a lovely park with great facilities for our families as we travelled together. We were accommodated side by side as requested with no hassles and the staff were outstandingly helpful in all areas.

Hi Susan S What lovely feedback. Thank you. I'm not sure if I am biased or not, but I believe I have the best staff and appreciate you giving a 'shout' out to them.

Hi Alan K What a lovely review. Thank you so much. The Homestead cabins have all just recently had new bathrooms and flooring.
