The Nowa Nowa Caravan Park

_____________________________

MILLION STAR ACCOMMODATION !

Welcome to the charming camping and caravan park retreat nestled on the edge of Boggy Creek Gorge in Nowa Nowa.

We offer a quirky style private caravan park which has retained its retro feel  with vintage upcycled caravans, metal sculptures, artworks and ….. free ranging chooks. This is not your average park!

From the leafy garden setting enjoy a short stroll to the Gorge and Lakeside walks, general store, cafe, textile studio and boat-ramp … walk the network of well marked wilderness hiking tracks, cycle the well known East Gippsland Rail Trail and kayak the calm waters of tree-lined Lake Tyers. Other nearby attractions include the huge Stony Creek Trestle Bridge, the Buchan Caves, several wineries and a micro brewery. There is also an incredible array of native wildlife to be seen in our area.

The park is more suited to mature aged travelling adult singles and couples, rather than children under 16.

We are acutely aware of climate challenges and offer a unique camping flavour with minimal environmental impact so if you are looking for a different retreat experience you are welcome to drop in and see if we fit your style.

Contact us for bookings & and general enquiries

Park office hours are 8.30am- 5.30pm. No admission after 7pm due to Covid check in guidelines.
Covid-19 Plan is in place for the park. All visitors must register.

WATER

Water is mains pressure town water supplied by East Gippsland Water.

Amenities (bathrooms and toilets etc) are all shared facilities.

There is quite an extensive camp kitchen area with crockery, cutlery, pots etc 

WiFi, PHONE and TV RECEPTION

Telstra is the strongest mobile phone and WiFi carrier.

We are in a blackspot here in Nowa Nowa so TV reception is only via the VAST satellite system in your van or your hotspot .

PETS ETC…..READ THIS SECTION ONWARDS CAREFULLY

There’s wildlife in and around this park including a delinquent cockatoo, echidna, lizards many native birds, free ranging chooks and a stray domestic duck..

Due to a number of incidents, (and a bit tired of picking up dog sh*t), we are very strict on dog types allowed into the park.

Well travelled small carpet sweeper type dogs are generally fine

Dogs must be kept on a lead AT ALL TIMES…. if not, your dog may be asked to leave and you with it.

Pets are NOT PERMITTED in our accommodation areas for obvious health reasons but are ok shedding fur and fleas in your camper or tent.

Under NO circumstances are pets to be left unattended while you go sightseeing or get your hair done.

Please realise that other guests may not want to be camped next to your yapping pride and joy

FISH

Fresh fish products (including prawns) are banned from being cooked and/or stored in our fridges or accommodation.

Following the recent bushfires ……. NO CAMPFIRES or FIREPITS are to be lit in the park.

(It may be a surprise to some of you with your caps on backwards that not everyone wants your smoke in their Winnebago or in the atmosphere)

 DO NOT FLUSH OBJECTS OTHER THAN THE TOILET PAPER PROVIDED INTO THE SEPTIC SYSTEM. (the local public dump point is at Lakes Entrance, only 15 min away)

PLEASE …. NO SOLID PLASTIC GROUNDSHEETS ON THE LAWN SITES as it buggers the lawn for the next guest. Use open weave camping mats.

 

TERMS, CONDITIONS and CANCELLATION POLICY

Don’t even THINK of arriving after the ABC news starts at 7 PM 

We only take cashless card payments and accept all major cards.

PLEASE CONSIDER OTHER CAMPERS HERE WHO NEED PEACE AND QUIET

We are a small private park suited to adult travellers rather than children under 16 yo.

A strict “No Dickheads” policy applies here. Guests who stay here are quiet, mature adults and have often travelled a long distance ….they expect to relax in peace.

…so… if you want to soak yourself with booze while your screaming kids and/or barking dogs run riot then please keep driving…. there are plenty of other parks.

A SITE IS CONSIDERED TO BE ONE CARAVAN OR ONE TENT. 

Please do not put food waste in the recycling bin.

Smoking is not permitted in any of the park buildings, vans or amenities.

Please be aware of the many wilderness, wildlife and waterway hazards that exist in our immediate area, use your common sense and take the usual precautions.

Unacceptable moronic behaviour will result in immediate expulsion and cancellation of the booking without refund.

Our fire safety policy requires that there be no heating, cooling, cooking appliances or candles to be used in the park’s accommodation and common areas other than the ones provided by the park.

Please familiarise yourself with the Nowa Nowa Incident Management Plan displayed in accommodation areas, the camp kitchen and the laundry in case an emergency should arise.

 The park is entitled to immediate reimbursement for any unpaid site fees, theft, damage or excessive accommodation cleaning caused to the park by guests before their departure and/or before transfer of van ownership.

Failure to give notice of cancellation of at least 24 hours prior to the arrival date or a no-show or an early departure wiil incur the full fees of the booking.
