Okay, so I want to start this out by saying that we stopped here for 3 nights on a driving holiday around Tassie, and we had just come from a beautiful place. We walked into our standard cabin, and were disappointed from the start. The 'Queen' bed was clearly a double, the equipped kitchen had two small pots and an...

I have been staying with Holiday Park all this while whenever I visit Australia; this one, is the best so far! Even my friends from Hong Kong, who were experiencing this type of accommodation for the first time, gave a WOW reaction when entered to the premises. Their immediate posting of the cabin house to their friends back home received...

Placed in back lot with 3 other caravans. Teenage kids found it scary. We've been to a lot of big 4 and discovery parks, but this site was noticeably run down. The ensuites are nice. Grateful that at least the back lot only contained motorhomes.

A very nice spot. Well located on the edge of the city and only 10 minutes to the downtown area, only moments to grocery shopping, malls, etc.. This is especially nice for folks interested in going to the famous Salmanaca Market or the Sunday farmers market. As an added bonus, the park has a bus come in each Saturday to...

Stayed for 1night in our campervan on a powered en-suite site. We didn't need power but they didn't have any unpowered sites so we're stuck with this one. Putting that aside, it was a nice park. The en-suite was a bonus, very clean and even more of a bonus that it was private as well. The communal kitchen was well...

I stayed overnight at the last minute (after hours) on an unpowered site in my van. I had no linen to sleep with for the night as I was just going to rough it. The manager (Hayden) of the park came over to check on how I was settling in. He noticed I had no bedding and without no hesitation...

Easy to find the park well sign posted. The place was clean and well maintained. Our cabin was spacious with the added luxury of washing machine and dryer. Very comfortable bed and large bathroom. All kitchen requirements needed and BBQ on our porch.

Located next to a busy road this park is fine for a sleep but not a relaxing nature location. Clean and tidy and manager was helpful refunding balance of stay so we could find somewhere else a bit more away from the urban feel.

The photo's do not give the whole story, situation is excellent right on the freeway into Hobart about a 10 min drive, central to getting around. The accomodation was very basic, bedroom incorporated into the lounge dining area, no doors on the wardrobe, toilet and shower was separate. 4 bunk beds were crammed into the space between the bathroom and...
