Are the midgee’s bad? – depending on the weather conditions, if it is still and it has rained and it is hot, they can be about, more prevalent in summer.  Recommend the use of moisturiser on your skin.  We stock Mangrove Magic which is locally made and not tested on animals and Deet Free.  Beautiful scent.  40 hour burn candles, Natural tropical potion, oil and balm.  Love this product and I’m sure you will too.  Light a mozzie coil around your camp at 4pm to difuse them.  We are in a natural environment where 40 acres of the property is bushland so you can expect bushland conditions.  No different than anywhere else in this natural setting.

What is the booking process – we try to make the booking process as simple as possible – just fill in the contact form.  A detailed invoice will be sent to you with instructions.

What if I decide I don’t want to stay – we understand that sometimes people change their mind, they want to stay nearer the shops or the beach once they have driven up.  We don’t have all the bells & whistles of the regular caravan parks.  We just have a natural bushland setting where you can connect with nature.  So if you want jumping pillows, games rooms, swimming pools for the kids, we don’t offer that.  If for some reason you have an emergency and you cannot make your booking or you have to leave early, we are happy to give you a credit for the nights you cannot stay.   If you fail to show up once you have received your booking access instructions, you will not receive a refund.   You can change your booking dates if an emergency arises, provided you give 48 hours notice.

The park has security access and you cannot just show up and expect to enter.  NO BOOKING, NO ENTRY.  Bookings can be made by filling in the booking form
