The staff were very friendly and efficient on arrival. We were issued with a document which stated rules for the park which was great. Our dogs... More

Lovely clean park. Two pools, trees, dated amenities but very clean. Friendly staff. Private island for bush camps in Lake with boat ramp + toilets. Close to Stockland shopping centre. Short drive to surf beach. Bowling club nearby for buffet with courtesy bus to van park.

We stayed down on Tony's Island for the long weekend and I don't have a bad word to say about the whole experience. The people are terrific, the island is great and the sunsets are some of the best. There is no restrictions on the size of your site and there are very few restrictions. There are toilets in the... More

I booked a cabin on-line, using the pictorial photo's to determine the cabin to book, upon arrival, I was given a cabin of a lesser standard, but was not given a refund for the difference in the cabin I had paid for, and the cabin I received.

Great spot and sunsets to die for. Ammenities at the resort good, however the resort looks tired. The island is definately the place to stay, if you like to camp. Ample room for the kids to play and ride bikes. Only warning, mozzies are bad and this was late April. Bring plenty of repellant.

“Cabins, powered sites and unpowered sites available. Away from the front is the quietest.”

“I love the loft cabin near the entry but it can get a little noisy due to being close to the main drag & right near the boom gates. The noise doesn't worry us but if you prefer it quiet ask for a room away from the entrance.”
