A great family stay. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Loved the handy location, although on the highway it was quiet. Look foward to our next visit.

We stayed in a cabin, the cabin was well layed out and there was space to put up a portable cot for a toddler who is not in a bed yet. The cabin had a tv, mini fridge big enough for a pizza box, loads a drinks, a big bottle of milk and a water jug in it, an iron, microwave, jug, toaster, shampoo/soap/conditioner, towels, sheets, reverse cycle air conditioning, tea/coffee/sugar/hot chocolate satchels, cutlery, dinner plates etc and dishwashing equipment. The grounds had a water park, 2x pools, tennis court/basketball court and a bounce pad.
