What you can expect at a bookable site

Picnic sites

Most bookable picnic sites have:

  • picnic tables
  • electric or wood burning BBQ
  • space suitable for games
  • drinking water

Our tip

For wood burning barbecues, you need to bring your own wood.

​Event sites

We have sites that are big enough to accommodate up to 500 people.

These are suitable for weddings, events and other big functions.

Some of the sites are permanently covered and some have large grassy areas where you can set up a marquee.
