Stayed for 2 weeks but definitely got sick of the shower water running hot and cold every 2 mins while there. Also not the cleanest camp kitchen.. great that they have free wifi and allow dogs though.

Decided to give a discovery cabin a try. Not disappointed. Definitely not the Hilton but very comfortable, well equipped. Comfy beds with electric blankets. Bathroom is clean with a great shower. No shortage of hot water. Full size fridge. Also has 2 heating sources. Electric...More

Fifteen minutes from the beautiful city of Launceston is Discovery Parks – Hadspen, a must on your Tassie touring itinerary. The peaceful South Esk River is a short stroll away from our caravan park and wineries, More national parks, and family attractions are close at hand. Before soaking up some culture at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, visit the stunning Cataract Gorge, beautiful gardens and resident peacocks in Launceston. Explore Narawntapu and Mt William National Parks, take a Tamar River Cruise, and taste your way through Tasmania’s oldest wine region, the Tamar Valley. Less
