What a great response! Thanks for being so prompt everyone.
I contacted the Park today. Availability will not be an issue they assure me. Closer to the time, I will email them with a list of names and final numbers, then everyone can call to pay their deposit to confirm their spot. Prices will depend on how many people are on each site - with a maximum of 6. The sites are huge (12x14m) so it should be no problem to fit 2-3 families on each one. With this in mind the prices will be as follows:
3 people per site = $59 per night
4 people per site = $69 per night
5 people per site = $79 per night
6 people per site = $89 per night
Yes, it's a little more expensive than most caravan parks, but the sites are powered (ahh, bliss), and they have 3 jumping pillows, flying fox, indoor pool and heaps of other stuff to keep the kids entertained. Sounds like kiddie heaven.
Whilst there are a few people who can't make it on 22-23 March, unfortunately there are no other suitable dates before the school holidays - it's such a short term! So don't worry if you can't make it this time.....I'm thinking about another trip 3-5 May, depending on the weather (see separate post).
