          A top place to stay when in this area. Reception was friendly and very helpful as was John who takes you around in his buggy and shows you the available sites and you choose which one you want. He will then guide you into the site if you need assistance. This park has had a makeover since our last visit and is a pretty picture of tropical trees and plants. Amenities near the rear of the park are En-suite style and very nice indeed. My only concern is the number of very tall trees around the sites that I consider are a hazard. There really is no need to allow trees to grow any taller than around 5 metres. A lot of the sites are bit on the tight side and usually no room for your car on the site.

          We were put right in front of the water splash park. It runs on a 5 minute timer but it has water guns, a big bucket that tips out 10 litres of water every minute.

          The front, older part of the park provides lots of cool shade under palm and other trees. Checking service was good. There are a range of transport option available to different activities, such as Casino, Mindil market, etc. You can wash your vehicles at your site which was a must in my case

          A lovely park with great staff, always willing to help. It is very busy but that is to be expected as it is the height of the tourist season and school holidays. The only problem is down the back of the park the ammenities block is made up of individual ensuite style toilet and showers which are lovely and clean and great to have a shower in however always full and a pain when you just want to go to the toilet. Lots of lush gardens and trees, the gumnuts falling on the van during the night is a bit noisy.

          Here we are at Howard Springs. It doesn't seem like six weeks since we left home, the time is going too quickly. The caravan park has changed to what we remembered, it appears a lot larger and busier than last time. Our sites is quite large with plenty of shade. It should be good for our stay. We are here for the next ten days.

          We had a lovely evening at the deckchair cinema with our friends Amanda, Brendan, Jazzy & Archie. We saw How to Train Your Dragon 2. The evening was warm & was lovely to relax with a beer.
