Frequently Asked Questions


These are brief answers to questions asked most often - even after a tour of the website!
This page does NOT include obvious questions like "Is the fishing any good?"
If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call.

What is to road from the highway to Wonboyn like?
  It is a well-maintained road, roughly 10 km of 80% bitumen/20% gravel.  At times there are corrugations and some potholes in the gravel sections, and it can be dusty or slippery when wet, so appropriately cautious driving is necessary.
Is the park right on the water?
  No. It is about 500 meters from the lake.
How far is it to the nearest beach?
  The closest beach is Greenglades - 4.5km. 
Is the road to the beach bitumen?
  No. It is an all-weather National Parks track.  Please see photo and other information here.
Is swimming in the ocean safe?
  The beaches are not patrolled, and there are rips and dumping waves when the surf is up.  On calm days swimming would usually be perfectly safe, but on others it would be plain foolish. Common sense and/or knowledge of the ocean is required.
Are the waves any good for surfing or boogy boarding?
  Some days the waves can be very good indeed for surfing, but they do tend to be "dumpers".  See above.
Are pets allowed?  Are they allowed in cabins?
  Yes, outside peak periods and pets are allowed in cabins depending on the breed. For further information, please be sure to read Bringing Pets.
What facilities do you have for babies?
  We have a porta-cot, high chair and plastic bath available for babies.
What is there for children to do in the park?
  In the park itself the swimming pool is always very popular in summer, as is feeding the birds year round - other than that, there is no "on tap" entertainment, and families create their own fun in the form of beach trips & games, picnics, lake swimming, bushwalking etc. In late December, January and at Easter there are always dozens of kids of all ages in the park who ride their bikes and "socialize" with newly met friends.
Is linen supplied?
  No, because we don't have access to a commercial laundry, we generally don't provide linen or towels.
