Stayed 9 nights in March. The amenities are a little dated, but functional. Appreciated the ensuite style. Great base from which to explore the western side of the island & although we were busy visiting sites & walking each day, we still ran out of time & would have loved to stay longer. Would have rated higher but for some...

We stayed here for one night and was the best caravan park we have stayed at. Wish we had time to stay here another night. Very clean amenities. Wild life was just meters from our site They even had a koala walk to go on at night.

We camped for 3 nights and had a great time. The amenities are top notch, especially the kitchen area. The park has a great atmosphere and you are surrounded by wildlife. It's a great spot to stay for exploring the other side of the island.

Mark and Fiona do a sterling job of running this caravan park. It is immaculate and surrounded with gum trees with koalas in them. In fact they were mating above our car and obviously they don't mind interruptions judging from the flashlights pointed at them. (If they were people the birthrate would be even lower!). Lots of roos and a...

We stayed 3 nights last week in a 2 bedroom cabin (Lonzars Cabin). Very quiet, so peaceful. The van park is super. We were lucky in that it was not crowded at all. We love the feel of being out in the bush land. Everything needed for self contained. Bedding very good. Close to the wildlife, Within the first hour,...

The cabins are a little tired but clean and the gardens and grounds could do with some rain. However the total experience is great, including the abundant bird life, particularly at Beckys Lagoon, the koalas, wallabies and kangaroos. Mark and Fiona are lovely hosts and helped us out on several occasions.

Nice campground close to the National Park in the west of KI. It's a more basic campground, but the facilities are quite clean. There is a lot of wildlife in and around the campground. Furthermore there are two short walks, which we can recommend.

We've stayed for just 3 days and we would have spent much longer in that amazing quite place. Cabins are equipped very well with a useful snack shop near the reception. Lovely animals going everywhere expecially during the night makes this place a perfect location for solo travelers and families. Highly recommended!

We stayed on a powered site for a small campervan, initially for one night but extended it to two as we just loved staying there. We considered staying a third night but did not have enough time overall during our trip and moved on to the eastern part of the island. The site was spacious, the camping ground very quiet,...

Lots of Wildlife on site, Great spacious sites, good and clean amenities and wonderful staff. Can't recommend enough. Would have stayed for more nights but couldn't chance our ferry tickets last minut. Koala walk in the park. Lots of kangaroos, koalas and birds.
