A great way to spend a few hours! Kids get some exercise and you enjoy the cafe and surroundings. It would be a great idea to give the locals a bit of a discount or introduce a repeat challenger card though, we go a fair bit, and gets pretty expensive with four children (2 are adult prices at $49 each!)...

From a camping point of view would We camp here again NO. Why you ask? The allocated camping lots are poorly maintain rocky uneven dirt areas. Our first allocated site was so steep you couldn't pitch a tent. The second rocky dirt with exposed tree roots. Positive is you can have a fire in the allocated stone fire circles. The... More

Two days at the park with overnight stay at Cedar Creek lodges. High ropes, thunderegg mining, mini golf and nature walks. Had a great time, super friendly staff, very relaxed, be back in a heart beat. Casual atmosphere, great place for those wanting a relaxing escape that's budget friendly. Not suited to fussy people that want every whim catered for.

We came here after the sky walk and thought the mini golf was great fun! I wish they had more holes to play but the 9 holes that were there were heaps of fun.

We regularly go to Thunderbird Park as we live in the coast and its a great place to go and get away for some quiet time. There are many things to do there and also great amenities. Staff are very friendly and you are able to have a fire on your camp site which is also a plus. Highly recommended... More

We took our grand daughters (5 & 3) camping for a weekend at Thunderbird Park. The camp grounds and facilities are fine and the kids loved playing on the rocks in the creek. There are a multitude of activities and a great cafe BUT there is a wedding reception venue right in the middle of the park. Despite the signs... More

Loved every second of the Thunderegg mining! Defs worth the money to mine and get the eggs cut. Beware of the steep hill to get to the dig sites. The Kiosk was quick to serve our food and the burgers were very nice.
