After a free upgrade we were allocated a relatively new, clean and comfortable cabin in a good location. The “standard” cabin we were originally allocated was small, old, in a terrible location immediately adjacent to a large bottle recycling dump. Check before booking!

The property and staff were great. When I booked there was nothing saying that there was no linen supplied. Two hours into my journey I received an Email advising me there was no linen. I could hire them for $15 . I went and bought a new pair of sheets when I arrived. There was also no towels so consequently we used the bath mat and hand towel when we showered

G'day we appreciate your feedback and have taken on board your comments with regards to the lack of wifi in you accommodation and are looking into the linen supply. Unfortunately our Economy Cabins are our older style cabins that are set back in the park and do not have views of the lake. Our new cabins do have views of the lake if you would like to perhaps give those a go. Kind Regards Discovery Parks Lake Bonney

Park is great. 2 good pools and a water park for the kids. Economy cabins weren’t too bad. Plenty of parking space. Lake is excellent and safe. Definitely recommend in summer
