My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and booked a powered campsite. On arrival we had been in the car for many many hours due to travel time, roadworks and not knowing Melbourne so we were sent the wrong way by our GPS. After pulling up we were frazzled, tired and anxious that having to drive back into...

have been here twice, both times staying in a 2 bedroom cabin, which are excellent. Although bordered by 2 very busy roads, you could almost imagine you are in a quiet country village. Great facilities, with a Woolworths supermarket and large gym next door. Very close to city and public transport, meaning you can enjoy the sights of Melbourne, without...

The location of our park is absolutely suited to people that don't want to be in the heartbeat of the city - so we're glad this was a treat for you! Thank you for taking the time to share your review.

We stayed at Discovery Parks in Braybrook for the weekend and as always this place is of a very high standard. The place has recently had a name change and a change of ownership and management and the new management team seem to be even better and even more friendly than the previous team. Originally called Ashley Gardens Holiday Prrk...

Omg after having to suffer a 2 night stay in the previous cabin in canberra( not with the same company i have to add) we were some what nervous of what to expect but what a suprise we had. The reception staff were so friendly and helpful. The delux studio cabin we had booked was fantastic, very clean and tidy...

This park boasts not only great cabins and facilities, but it is also only a short drive into the heart of Melbourne. When traveling, even to a city that has a great public transport system, its is still quite a task along with the cost to travel with a family, however this parks location found us in the city 3...

Stayed 1 night the cabin is very good for the price, very clean and tidy a little noisy as it's under the flight path. Check in was fast and easy. Shower pressure was good and air con worked well on a cold night. My only negative the mattress on the bunks could be thicker as it was uncomfortable.

We were looking for a place to stay just for one night, a very short stay in transit from country Victoria to the Tasmania ferry in the morning. We were completely surprised by the size of the cabin we stayed in, and the facilities provided. Two full bedrooms (with enough room to put up a portacot in the 2nd bed...

Very easy to get into the City from here, a clean, park with facilities for children. Better to stay here than the hotels of the area, at least you have space in a cabin, the ability to cook, to relax. Parking free, If visiting friends in Footscray I would stay here. It has a pool, BBQ areas. Comfortable clean rooms

Our family stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter period on a powered camping site. Unfortunately we did not utilise alot of the facilities the park had to offer as our days were spent exploring the city which is about a 15 minute drive from the park. I found that the guy that checked us in wasn't overly friendly...

I love the Big4 Parks and the accommodation here was spacious compared to some. 3 had a 3 bedroom deluxe spa cabin. Very clean and tidy. The roads within the park are wide. Lots for the kids, a heated pool, recreation room, tennis courts, play area. Staff were very nice and helpful. Would stay here again. Very very happy.?
