  • Unfortunately some yobbos busted up the bathroom and the police had to come and close it down for a while, but the staff were excellent and did everything they could to make it great again. The campsites are quite close to each other and basic, but clean and the amenities were good. "Breakfast with the birds" was a disappointment. We were expecting to be feeding lots of pretty or exotic birds, but it was just a couple of kookaburras, a magpie, and soldier birds that came to eat sausages and left over scraps. The lunchtime feeding of parrots was much more what we envisioned, and it was free. No complaints about the quality of food in either the restaurant or cafe. The horse trail ride was excellent. Well organised, good horses and equipment, interesting trail, and the price is reasonable. In some areas the park is a bit rundown, but it looks like they are slowly renovating and improving things, do hope to see it in better condition in future.
  • I visited only for a few hours & I liked it. I had a cup of coffee, it was good & staff are very friendly. It's good for a day trip or camping with family and friends. Restaurant looks very nice. Bird feeding/watching at 2pm was worth waiting.
