Went here to originally do the Tree Top Challenge for my birthday with friends last year, unfortunately was booked out that morning, so did the zipflying tour instead. For someone who was very nervous - found the staff incredibly helpful and smoothed out the nerves a little. But in general was a great tour, my friends loved it and I'd... More

The beds were comfortable though and the supplied linen was fine.... More

Visited this attraction on a very hot day, so too hot to dig for the thunder eggs. They are available in the shop so not a problem to purchase one. The cafe and eating area had seen better days, very tired indeed and the food looked less than appetising. The treetop challenge seemed to be the biggest attraction, and youngsters... More

No matter who you are Thunderbird Park has something you will love! I first went here on a school camp 10 or more years ago now and I loved it then and I love it now. Since then they have added so many different activities for the more adventurous person down to the more relaxed person and young kids. Great... More

Spent a couple nights there for a conference. A little run down and expensive for the quality. Beautiful location though.

Visited this park on an extremely busy and hot day. There is no entry fee to the park and there was ample parking. Each activity had a price. I felt the thunder egg fossicking was way overpriced for the privilege of walking up a steep hill to dig in the dirt in the hot sun. There was then a fee... More
