“We stayed for 3 nights in May 2011. This is an average Council owned park and quite suitable for a night or two…unfortunately the park does not appear to be maintained correctly, during our stay the amenities block was quickly cleaned just the one time, the shower curtains should have dumped ages ago, the BBQ was not cleaned at all and was very dirty. The laundry contained a domestic type of dryer that was not working, a shed containing many cleaning chemicals was left in an open, unlocked condition even when the on-site caretaker was absent. Perhaps someone from the Council should drop by this park. On a positive side the sites are spacious, The town, walking distance away, was pretty. $23 per night is ok value.”
Our roving reporter Paul Greig of Brisbane Queensland reviews Bass Hill Holiday Village in NSW:
“It is this writers opinion that the Bass Hill Holiday Village should be avoided by Grey Nomads and other tourists unless there are no alternatives. The park is located on the extremely busy Hume Highway and a good nights sleep is not guaranteed, worse, management appear to have little interest in fixing things or putting any money back into the park.
The main amenities block shows many years of neglect including a number of running, not dripping, taps, one would think a bulldozer would be the most effective repair. The condition of the bitumen roadways was very poor.
On the positive side, The Bass Hill Holiday Village has bus stops outside the front gate and pensioners can take advantage of the $2.50 all day, any service city travel system.
Our roving reporter Paul Greig of Brisbane Queensland reviews BIG4 South Durras Holiday Park in NSW:
“We found this park to be very clean, only 8 caravan sites with annex pads but many others on the grass. Lots of friendly kangaroos. Close to great beach and national park. Good discounts during off peak season.”
