A great place to stay. Clean accommodation, friendly staff, great views of the river from our riverfront studio apartment. Birdlife is plentiful and friendly. The RSL is just a few minutes away and Morrison's Winery is next door. We will definitely be paying future visits because it is so close to attractions such as the Rich River Golf Course and...

This is THE place to stay in the Echuca/Moama area. We had a powered site, with ample room - dirt for the car, slab for the van and grass for the annex. The cost was the cheapest around. Quite a large complex, with an emphasis on cabins. Just needs a few more trees and greenery,but that is happening - there...

THANKS for your review! We are working very hard to create and expand our caravan and camping division of our business, as for many years, we were only cabins. We have plans to even put some river sites in during 2018. Keep coming back and every time I am sure you will spot something new. Cheers

Thanks for your lovely review, we're glad you enjoyed the time at our park. In regards to pricing, be sure to follow our Facebook page for specials as we run these frequently. Our peak pricing (when you stayed) is higher due to supply and demand, so be sure to grab a bargain next time and you'll be even more satisfied!...

We really liked this park the pool area is fabulous. Amenties were great with two young girls loved having an individual bathroom. The activities ran by the park were beyond our expectations (band by the pool, free camel rides, free bbq and drinks, reptile show, patting animal farm)

We had an amazing 2 bedroom cabin opposite the pool. The amenities were amazing, excellent pool, great games room and awesome number plate scanning entry. They have excellent river views, best motel I have been to in Echuca.

Resort was very quiet as I was there Monday/Tuesday nights in mid October, obviously not during school holidays. I can imagine it would be a very busy place during the Summer, as there is absolutely everything here for a family to enjoy. My only problem was that the many houseboats moored in the Murray in front of the "Riverview Cabins"...

Thanks for your feedback and we agree, those houseboats do block views! We're working on that one ;) For those travelling on weekends, most of the boats are out on hire so the views are not blocked then. You are spot on when you comment about being busy in the summer, although VERY busy, the park still has a great...
