We went as a group of 20 (including 8 kids) the caretaker was lovely, the kids had a ball and so did we.. We booked a cabin which made it especially easy with the younger kids in our group - we had babies through to 6 year olds.Next time we return we will stay for longer.

Bush camping away from the hussle and bussle of caravan parks. We stayed here on a windy cold day and night, we found a sheltered unpowered site for our hired camper van. The amenities were always clean and he hot free shower most appreciated on a cold day. Little functional camp kitchen was cosy and warm. Lots of stuff for...

Campsite is a great location down by a dam. Bathroom and kitchen facilities clean and tidy. Museum of the 'olden days' was interesting but looking a bit 'tired' Free use of the word fired BBQ was a treat and took me back to my youth. Good value for money. Will stop by again

Such an awesome experience. So much fun was had and sad faces from our kids when we had to leave. We camped down near the lake and the kids loved swimming in there. Exploring the different activities scattered around the park was a lot of fun. We spotted quite a few animals on our nightly walk. On the Saturday we...

We had a pleasant visit here, with good weather meaning the kids could make the most out of the outdoor activities. These were a little on the old side but the kids didn't mind and had a great time. The cabin itself was a bit cramped, and when we arrived we only had no bedding for the sofa bed but...

We booked for 3 nights but cut it short by a night as the weather was very dismal. Continually poured which made it hard for the 2 & 4 year old to get out and play. I am with most of the other reviews on here. Run down activities and facilities. Some upkeep, upgrade, and maintenance on the accommodation and...

Had my first visit to this spot and my husband, our 3 children (ages 7, 9 and 12) all loved it. The campsites had everything we need and the activities kept the kids entertained. Loved the animals and obstacle courses. Highly recommend.

WE were just driving by and decided to check it out to stay for the night given we are not too keen on the town caravan parks. If you have kids between the ages of 5-20 this is a must! But if you are scared of letting them take a few risks, then maybe this is not your place -...
