Hi sunlover 76 Thank you for your amazing review. It is appreciated. You stayed in our Deluxe cabin which having 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms is perfect when extra room is required. Yes, how great to have the new supermarket complex just over the road? So convenient for our guests (and us also) not to have to drive the 8kms...

Kids really enjoyed the indoor heated pool facility. The kids playground and tennis courts were well utilized by our family. Free pancakes on Saturday morning were a welcome suprise. Staff were friendly and attentive to our needs.

The cabin we had was a good one in its day, but is now somewhat tired. New fridge was great but the sofa was well past its use-by date. Lion was marked heavily on places and the car park was extremely narrow. WiFi dropped in and out consistently. Staff were very friendly but opted not to stay a second night.

Hi Mark S Thank you for taking the time to review us. We appreciate all constructive feedback as it helps us with staff training and to prioritise park improvements. The ‘Matilda’ cabin you stayed in is our budget, entry level accommodation and is due for refurbishment but we believe it represents value for money. We hope that you will consider...

We stayed here for two nights in a two bedroom swagman cabin. The cabin was clean and comfortable, however the furniture a little dated. The lounge was sagging in the middle and very uncomfortable to sit on. There was also no linen or towels provided for children staying, even though there is an extra nightly charge for each child. The...

Hi LeanneandBrett M Thank you for your lovely feedback. It is very much appreciated.

Couldn't ask for a better welcome by the reception lady when booking in So pleasant, friendly and happy. We booked a ensuite site as we have a caravan. We were even escorted to our site by the receptionist. The park was very clean and the facilities were fantastic. I would highly recommend this park to anyone who has a family

I have stayed at this accommodation on many occasions. This park is located on the edge of town however a new shopping centre has opened nearby. The cabins are always well presented. The highlight of this park would be the indoor pool. Perfect for a winter getaway the kids will spend a lot of time in here. The pool area...

This place ticked alot of boxes for our family. Located a short drive from Ballarat, the park is set back from the road so we didn't experience any of the street traffic. Woolworths is located 5 minutes away which was very handy. We travelled during the school holidays. The park offered plenty for the kids to do including movie nights...

We stayed at Ballarat Windmill holiday park for a basketball tournament. The park was very clean, including toilets and great showers. The pool and play ground were fantastic. The staff were very friendly and helpful, in particular giving us directions to basketball stadium. Would recommend to anyone staying in a van or cabin. Thanks
