We always stay at this park in Melbourne because of its location. It is a only a bus and tram ride to the city. A new Woolworths has opened only minutes walk away with coffee shop, Chemist and BWS. Big 4 members pay $45 a night 2A powered site. A bit expensive but it is a very well maintained park with excellent facilities. Ensuite sites available. Roads are all sealed, main amenities are modern and clean, great games room above it, several under cover BBQ areas in the park, beautiful clean heated pool and spa, very good play ground. Good dump point. Great tourist information and attraction discounts in the office and the staff are very helpful. Only down side is sites next to pool and play area can be noisy. But all parks have the same problem. Roads are narrow and can be hard to back into but assistance is available. Good double annex slabs but other sites being up graded they have green matting for slabs. The big rigs section is in need of up grade, have to share the amenities with unpowered sites in that section of the park and were not as modern as the main amenities block. Good unpowered sites, all green grassed and near camp kitchen. Boom gate entrance. Good WiFi coverage and mobile phone. Good TV reception.
Melbourne has so much to offer, Old Melbourne Gaol where Ned Kelly was hung, see Ned Kellys real armour in the library its free to enter, Melbourne aquarium, Zoo, Melbourne Museum where Phar lap 'lives' MCG tours, sports museum at the MCG, Police museum, Fitzroy gardens where Capt Cooks cottage is and don't miss the Queen Victoria markets.

The park is great, HOWEVER the sites are very small and difficult to reverse into and fully concreted which does not allow setting up an annex or sunblockers on an awning, particularly those along the road which goes past the amenities block.
This park is a really nice park. It is quiet and all of the cabins are modern and well equiped. The caravan sites are nice and some have ensuits. Public transport is nearby so it is easy to get into the city. Melbourne has exellent sports culture especially AFL. Great places to visit are Queen Victoria markets, Old Melbourne Gaol where famous Ned Kelly was hung, the Museum which is the home of the race horse Pharlap, The State Library where Ned Kellys real armour is kept, the Police museum houses Dan Kellys and Steve Harts from the Kelly gang. There is the Aquarium to see, the famous Melbourne Zoo and Melbourne is an amazing place to go shopping and the food is like no where else. Melbournians are big food critics and only like the best. And you can be assured that is what you will get when you eat in Melbourne. The city has a mix of moden buildings and old, which contrasts beatifully against each other. It is also fun riding on the trams! Melbourne has so much history and is one of the oldest cities in Australia.
