Check-out time is 10am. If available, our staff can arrange a 12pm late departure for a $20.00 fee.
Your site is available from 12pm on your holiday start date. You will need to vacate your site by 10am on the day of your departure.

Your pet remains your responsibility throughout your stay.
We are pleased to welcome most dogs at our parks, however, some breeds of dog are not allowed, this is at the discretion of the Park Managers.
Assistance dogs for disabled guests are exempt from these requirements and charges.
Pets must be kept on a lead at all times and you must clean up after your pet. Pets (other than assistance dogs) are not allowed in any of our park facilities or play areas.
Pets should not be allowed in holiday homes or ensuites. If your dog is found in the holiday homes or ensuites, this will result in loss of deposit and an additional cleaning fee of $200.00.
If we reasonably believe your pet is causing a nuisance, behaving dangerously or causing damage to the property, you will be required to remove it from the park. No refunds will be provided in these instances.▲ Back to top
