Location of the park is great. They do a lot to entertain the kids. Management can control late night noice better. We did not get much sleep with noicy neighbours. Only one basin in kitchen to wash dishes. Had to wait every time to wash dishes. Stand was s bit muddy.

Booked a powered site in this caravan park which is quite satisfactory however overall it is in need of some upgrading. The ammenities were clean and our gravel site was spacious. Other site options available offered matting but were not appealing due to ground dampness and leaf coverage. I feel it was a little disappointing based on many other Top...

Thank you for your review today. We're sorry to see that you were a little disappointed with our sites during your recent stay. Unfortunately your arrival came after a night of strong winds and heavy rain that did unfortunately leave some of our sites covered in leaves. This on top of 2 weeks of heavy rain has left some of...

We have been staying at Lani's for 20+ years now in different types of accommodation. We have camped on the 'island' and stayed in cabins. This time we decided to take the boat so stayed in Ferntree cabin 47 which fronts on to the grass reserve & creek. Although the weather was hideous with wind & driving rain(as was the...

Very relaxing few days in a mid week breakaway. The villa we stayed in was adequate to our needs, very clean on our arrival. We had family camping on Tonys point Island which seemed well appointed for campers. The staff seemed polite and helpful. Clean and well maintained area around villas etc. Will return again in the future.

Robyn and her staff go above and beyond to help you. The park is looking a little tired (coming from an ex-local who spent many, many hours on Tony’s Island with the horses) but given that you are out and about most of the time, it doesn’t really matter. 3 pools to choose from, 1 being a shallow one for...

We chose to stay at Lani's because they were dog friendly and we wanted our 2 dogs to come with us. The park was lovely, with plenty of shade. There were 2 swimming pools.

“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.”
