    I didn't like the fact the office said they would advise when earlier check-in would be available and they didn't.

    Location is awesome what an experience. The seagulls noise from their nesting was not expected. Sleeping mats (we did camping package) were not great or I’m just getting old.

    Lack of information on the internet regarding basic tent accommodation, we carried camp chairs all the way there for the concert when we didn't need to as chairs were with the tent. Also future reference organisers need to allow people with accommodation on the island to be able to exit the concert instead of being closed in for an hour or more with people held in who were being ferried off that was just ridiculous, our whole reason for staying was to not have to do this, and we were one of many in the ssme situation!!! We could not get through and it was so jammed packed no one would let you through!!! Also we wanted to go into the concert for a while then go and explore the island grab jackets and go back in but we couldn't do that either so we froze!

    The island is a very interesting place to visit and explore. The campsite was fun for the kids, however, for an overnight stay, it seemed too quick. Bring thongs for the campsite as the grass has bindi's and bring your own wine!

    The property has a unique old world charm. The interiors a a mix of vintage 1800’s , 1950’s and modern. Eclectic and quirky lol

    We chose to use a BYO campsite. The campsite was clean, no litter, flat and with a great view. The price was reasonable and there was a great camp kitchen with microwaves, boiling water on tap, BBQs etc. Again all clean and in good condition. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Could not praise it enough. Would definitely stay again.
