This caravan park is not easy to locate, but could be well worth the effort. It's on the western side of the city so if you'r travelling from Princess Hwy /Calder Hwy / Hume Hwy and returning that way, you'll save a lot of time by not having to cut through the traffic. It's in an industrial area and feels...

Found this gem online, The cabins were spacious and spotlessly clean with air conditioning and ceiling fan. The site had a swimming pool and sauna and next door to a supermarket for provisions. Easy drive from airport and into city. Very children friendly with playground and pool. Office staff were very pleasant and helpful. Will definitely go back.

This is a hidden gem close to the city centre. The park is well looked after and very clean. Has a good size pool and a rec room that offers a ping pong and pool table. There is also a TV and internet room at one end of the building with a spa and sauna at the other. The cabins...

Booked a powered ensuite site for the camper van. Service was excellent when I arrived as they show you to your site. The park is clean and well maintained. The pool was nice and the kids loved it. The only downside is the local area (the road beside sounds like a race track) and the planes overhead but we already...

Spent a couple of nights in a cabin over the new year period. Check in was very efficient and staff were wonderful. The park has a pool, playground, tennis court etc, great entertainment for the kids. The cabin was neat and tidy. It has easy access to the city if you want to drive in.
