GoSeeAustralia found Park Lane's attention to detail refreshing. For example in providing easy access to cabin accommodation for the disabled the ramp which leads to the cabin door is part of a deck. The result is that both disabled people and the fortunately fit share the cabins benefits.
Going the extra lap extends to back of the cabins. It is not an area that usually gets great attention, but at Park Lane paving, landscaping and plants make it just as attractive as the front of the accommodation. The Deluxe cabin living dining areas have room for family and friends and the circular dining table has seating for six.
Lodges and Cottages come with a useful washing machine behind folding doors in the ensuite. They also have furniture which borders on the decadent. One lounge we tried is softly laid back with a fold out drinks holder in the middle. The master bedroom we saw had a warm suede contrast wall, bay window, quality bedding and plenty of hanging space.
Park Lane's Lodges with spa hold their own with any Australian touring accommodation option we have used and the cabins run away with the game in a price comparison with many hotels and motels.
The caravanEnsuite sites are effective, drive-through and fit easily into the thoughtful development of Park Lanes caravan and motorhome movement plan.
Children do well with modern games room, pool and playground. The TV room includes lounge chairs which allow a feet-up approach to the screen scene.
For complete relaxation for body and mind Barry has completed the launch of a serious all-weather outdoor spa under its own gazebo roof.
GoSeeAustralia believes that the major requirement for successful caravan park managers is that they must be able to turn their hand to anything.
Barry fills the bill and as far as the bubbling spa is concerned clearly takes special pride in his work. GoSeeAustralia notes that in our eight-seater spa picture the head at left in line with the hand-rail looks like Barry's. Which might explain his enthusiasm for spa maintenance. We could be wrong of course!
While you are at Park Lane Tourist Park Go and See:
Old Gippstown is the name and it tells it like it was
Michael Fozard of Old Gippstown says they have gone back to the old and most recognised name Old Gippstown, instead of Gippsland Heritage Park, but they have also captioned it with Gippsland's Heritage Park to retain some identity of the last name and to provide more of an explanation of what they are.
The name Old Gippstown derives from Gippsland/Town and it is to show that the park is set up to represent an old township which has the character and history of the Gippsland region.
Just off the highway as you enter Moe the Park is authentic and Old Gippstown is often seen as the Gateway to the Deli Trail, local Winery Tours, Walhalla and a host of other popular sights and attractions that give Gippsland its rich, vibrant culture.
