Extremely rude from the second we arrived and continued for the 4 nights we stayed!
Owner hired us out a boat, which when marine police pulled us up we found our son was given incorrect style of life jacket ((8yo)- we are not familiar with ocean/bay boating so didn’t know) AND safety gear was out of date- fire extinguisher had been let off... very disappointing.. general store across the road just as rude and arrogant. Anyone would think they don’t want tourist in their town to spend their money.

Thanks for your feedback and we apologise that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We have an extensive safety management plan in place for hiring of boats, but following your feedback we will review to see if there are any ways in which it can be further improved to aid those who may not be as familiar with boating in the area?

The room was lovely and the view over the bay was nice. There is no internet access unless you buy something from the kiosk each day worth $10.00, but the internet is only available at the kiosk. The seemed to be a large variety of hot food, but our chips tasted stale...possibly old oil. I did not find the caretakers to be friendly...they were there just to do a job.
There was not enough supplies in our cabin for a 5 night stay. There was only 2 tiny tubes of dishwashing liquid which was very inefficient. In the end we used our own shampoo to wash dishes. The same with the bathroom soap....not enough.
Being a land based fisher, I asked whether you could fish from the shore. The shore is mainly mud flats and very shallow. Fishing from the jetty was just heaps of small tommies, and undersized whiting. The other person there was having success squidding. So we hired a tinny. This worked out well but you will get no tips from the caretakers. On putting out the anchor the first time, the rope was badly tangled in a couple of places leaving trailing rope in the water while I tried to untangle it all. When we returned from our trip, we returned the boat to the sandy area we started out from. But, as pointed out by the grumpy caretaker, this was not the right place. He had to get his feet wet. He would not allow us to help him.
Overall, a disappointing experience.

Room tip: 5 nights was too long for the amount of activities in the area.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review and your comments. As you would be aware Venus Bay is quite isolated and we have to rely on satellite internet with a very small included data allowance.
Next time please come to reception and let us know you need more dishwashing liquid and soap, we more than happy to provide more if you're staying with us for a while.

Sorry to hear the fishing didn't go so well - hopefully next time the whiting will be biting for you!

I stayed here for two weeks and even the covid lock down didnt put me off! Such a tranquil place with beautiful views! The water was great for Kayaking and many happy fisher people! The amenities were spotless and so surprising to get takeaway food at the park. Also checked out the general store and wow! Fuel, groceries, takeaway food and the bottle shop is well stocked & good prices!

Stayed at this caravan park for 3 nights. The views out to the bay were outstanding with heaps of pelicans and other sea birds. Fishing is good from the jetty and even better from a boat evidently from the catches I saw. Staff were fantastic, shop well stocked and great takeaway food. The amenities were very clean and maintained albeit a bit older. The BBQ and camp kitchen is fantastic. Would easily recommend this to anyone and will be back ourselves.

We stayed in a Starfish Cabin right on the shore front which had excellent views of Venus Bay. The cabin was excellent with all the facilities you wanted. Very clean and comfortable although we found the bed rather hard to sleep on. The staff were friendly and very helpful and served great fish and chips and steak sandwiches in the shop.
