Very easy to get into the City from here, a clean, park with facilities for children. Better to stay here than the hotels of the area, at least you have space in a cabin, the ability to cook, to relax. Parking free, If visiting friends in Footscray I would stay here. It has a pool, BBQ areas. Comfortable clean rooms

Our family stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter period on a powered camping site. Unfortunately we did not utilise alot of the facilities the park had to offer as our days were spent exploring the city which is about a 15 minute drive from the park. I found that the guy that checked us in wasn't overly friendly...

I love the Big4 Parks and the accommodation here was spacious compared to some. 3 had a 3 bedroom deluxe spa cabin. Very clean and tidy. The roads within the park are wide. Lots for the kids, a heated pool, recreation room, tennis courts, play area. Staff were very nice and helpful. Would stay here again. Very very happy.?

This central park is close to everything including a woolworths and bws right next door. Its about 6minute drive to flemington and a bit more to the city. Nice clean amenities however the planes flying over were loud at times. we stayed on a powered grass site which was quite small as it was on a median strip however it...

We are saying at the park while our house is being renovated, it was the nearest caravan park. The facilities and amenities are great, the cabins are clean and comfortable with heating and cooling. We enjoyed staying in and cooking meals as well as using many of the local take away food establishments close by. There are parks nearby and...

Clean, tidy park. A lot of concrete but what else would you expect in a capital city. It does mean your site stays pretty clean though! Pool was terrific. We had an ensuite site- bathroom was aging but immaculate.

Stayed at the Big 4 Ashley Gardens, Braybrook for a week. The park is well maintained with good clean amenities, nice pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful in assisting you with the best site for your needs at check in. The park is well serviced by a bus that leaves outside the park about every 15 minutes. A...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. As we have a large van and car trailer this is only one of a couple of places that have enough parking space. We stayed in a delux cabin which was spacious and very comfortable. The grounds are well kept with many trees and garden beds, you don't feel like your...

This caravan park is not easy to locate, but could be well worth the effort. It's on the western side of the city so if you'r travelling from Princess Hwy /Calder Hwy / Hume Hwy and returning that way, you'll save a lot of time by not having to cut through the traffic. It's in an industrial area and feels...
