Fantastic spot for kids! There is an outdoor Montessori like playground hidden up the back - a great place for kids under the age of 10 to run wild. Peaceful, lots of trees and flushing toilets

Can you stay if you don’t have gray water tank ?


Hi im not sure about thT but i beleive it wouldnt be a problem Joanne by Des M.


Thanks by Joanne L.


We would use a bucket by Joanne L.


Hi Joanne, whilst you are best to contact the local Council, my recent stay would seem to suggest that having a Grey water tank is almost essential. Even if you collect your grey water in a bucket there was no evidence of a suitable place to deposit it. We travelled in a van with a 100L get and so for us wasn't an issue. Contact Crystal Brook Council to be sure. Good luck. by John P.
