Terms & Conditions

Accommodation & Site Requests

We make every effort to fulfil guest’s requests. However at times we are unable to fulfil those requests. It is very unfair of some guests to become aggressive towards our staff and cause a scene in our reception when we are not able to fulfil a request. At times a guest that is already staying with us may wish to extend their stay or maintenance may need to be carried out on accommodation or sites.

Minimum Booking Periods

Minimum booking periods apply in Mid, Spring/Autumn and Peak Seasons and the July School holidays. Weekends in accommodation in the value season are a minimum of 2 nights. Long weekends out of school holidays are a minimum of 3 nights. The March Long Weekend is a minimum of 7 nights.

A credit card bond imprint or $100 cash bond is required on arrival. After departure your cash bond will be refunded by cheque in the next mail, or credit card details destroyed, subject to unit inspection.
