  • A 50% refund will be made if you cancel your booking 15 to 30 days before your booked date of arrival.
  • No refund will be made if you cancel your booking less than 14 days prior to your booked date of arrival.

A full refund will be available for all campground bookings when the Fire Danger Ratings reach EXTREME or CATASTROPHIC, or in an emergency situation. In these instances the park and campground will be closed to the public. You will be notified at the earliest possible opportunity to offer a change of date or full refund. If you have already commenced your experience and, dependent on your situation, an alternative camping date may be able to be arranged with booking staff to compensate for any loss of camp time.

Booking alterations

Every change made to your existing booking will incur an $8.50 booking alteration fee. The exceptions to this fee are:

  • Extending your stay.
  • Increasing the number of sites you have booked.

Date change

You are entitled to make one change of date, providing at least two days’ notice is given.  Please note that date changes are considered a booking alteration and will incur an $8.50 booking alteration fee. Conditions of a date change are:

  • No refund will be made if you request to change a date less than 2 days prior to your booked date of arrival.
  • You must advise a date when transferring the booking.
  • The new date must be within 365 days of the initial arrival date and will be subject to availability.
  • If an alternate date is not known, the booking will be cancelled and a refund may be provided (maximum 50% of the fee paid less the booking alteration fee).
  • Bookings cannot be split.
  • Should any transferred booking, regardless of the notice given, be subsequently cancelled, the maximum refund available is 50% of the fee paid less the alteration fee.

Reduction of booking

Reducing the number of sites you have booked, or reducing the length of your booked stay will be treated as a booking alteration and cancellation. As such, a reduction in booking will incur an $8.50 booking alteration fee and be subject to the Refund Terms outlined above.

For example, if you reduce the number of sites required within 15-30 days of your arrival date you will receive a 50% refund on the site(s) no longer required, less the $8.50 alteration fee.
