Not the best place for living or a weekend away with the family as the office staff/manager will not help as it got bad news living at the park with police coming over every night of the week & if I was you. DON'T book in to Canberra South Motor Park. Just book into somewhere else

OK, here goes. After leaving our accommodation booking late (needed 6 night, family with two teenagers, in school holidays, and not a massive budget) we ended up booking here. I'll begin with the Good Points: The location is great, 10 minutes to almost anywhere, with is so close to the Parkway & being on Canberra Ave. We were booked into...

Thank you for the feedback Simon and your fair comments to some points however when we took over the park it was extremely run down including all the infrastructure that you don't see, we are working on this first as some of the work that we have already done was flagged as a safety issue. These things take time and...

Some months ago I booked a site for two consecutive weekends, the first at the start of Floriade. The office was unattended when we arrived at 3:00pm and closed the whole weekend we were there. The site had a broken concrete slab. My husband (in his 70s) tripped over a broken piece of concrete and fell heavily, hurting his shoulder,...

Just going on the review in the caravan book you would happily go. Don't be fooled. On entry the staff did not have knowledge of the area and could not direct you. They only would give you an inadequate map of the area. The office was also not staffed if there were problems encounted. This park is mainly for permanent...

We booked this for 3 nights in caravan with family. Felt quite a bit uncomfortable with most of the tenants in on site bungaloes, vans & sheds for workers, not a lot of travelling caravans. Toilet block was quite old & warn - though clean & presentable. Caravan area was dirt/gravel - no grass - and not level. Position -...

Booked a 'grassed' site. We were directed to an area & told to just pick a spot. When we pulled up it was nothing more than a dirt paddock. Not a blade of grass in sight. So uneven it is almost impossible to level the van. The park is full of permanents that clearly have no pride in their surroundings....

Only Caravan park with vacancy (sch hols). Booked 2 nights. Bathroom clean, but 2nd day no hot water for early shower. As Office does not open till 11am there was no one to tell. So i phoned later in the day: manager was very abrupt, refused to believe me, refused partial refund , said "well don't stay here again' and...

The cabin was clean, tidy, and in the perfect spot, central to all things in Canberra. Despite being a large caravan park it is surprisingly quiet. Even though the office was closed on Good Friday the owners came out to meet us, they were very friendly and accommodating. I didn't expect such nice lodgings for the price. Would definitely stay...

Despite some of the reviews here, we had little choice in Canberra because we have a camper trailer that needs pegging down and this seemed to be the only place that accommodated that. So we didn't have high expectations, but found the place to be perfectly serviceable. Yes the facilities are dated but are basically clean (if you get in...

This is the first time I have ever given a "Terrible" rating so that is saying something when you look at my reviews. My advice to others is do not stay here. It is like a reject place from the 1950's. It is filthy, dirty, has undesirables living on site as what I would describe as "trailer park trash" I...
