What a beautiful place. So clean. Facilities awesome. Heaps of things to do and places to relax. A great place to stay. Impressed with shower and kitchen facilities. Would have stayed longer if able to.

We stayed in a standard 4 bed cabin as a family. Staff were welcoming and very friendly. The cabin was a reasonable price and it was very clean and tidy with all that we needed. The shared bathrooms and kitchen were all lovely, clean and tidy and nicely organised. The deck around the cabin was practical and an ideal spot...

There is not much to do around the holiday park, if you don't want to take the car with you. The only problem during our stay was the cleaning staff.

I just wanted to mention the good service we had, through the whole process of making and changing reservations, service on-site and then a very quick and friendly response when we discovered a billing error, which was mainly caused by people in our group not knowing what they needed to do.

We booked within a week of taking our short road trip and managed to get one of the two Delux Motels on site.The motel was located in a relatively quiet area closer to the road than the river. It was spacious inside and was capable of sleeping five people even though there were only two of us. It also had...

Booked for 2 nights for glamping experience. It's better than I expected. The interior was spacious & clean. Can't fault the facilities, you'll get everything you need. Park is located about 3km from city. Quiet and by the river. Staff were friendly.

We stayed for a couple of nights at a good spot by the river, the facilities were well laid out and clean. The staff were helpful. The site was very quiet after 9.00pm. It,s a bit of a trek to town and no supermarket close by. There was a good street market in town on Saturday.
