Loved this park. Unfortunately we only had a one night stay, but was so peaceful. Beautiful large, green grassy sites near the creek. Lovely clean amenities. Can do fossicking on site. Also has petrol and takeaway food with grocery supplies. Were able to walk over road and down a little to the Gem Market on Sundays. Great fun. Wished we could have stayed longer. Next time!!



Lovely little park. Simple and clean amenities. Nice big sights. Perfect star gazing. Lots of conflicting advice about where the best wash or gems can be found so don't get your hopes up too high! Ewan was very kind to show us how to find sapphires in the wash. Lorikeets in the park were very sweet, allowing us to hand feed them.



We really enjoyed our stay here. Hot showers, clean bathrooms, friendly staff, the takeaway shop was super convenient and the burgers were huge. The owners went above and beyond to delight our daughter in her belief of unicorns.
