Stratford on the River Tourist Park

 

stratford river park photoSituated on the banks of the Avon River amongst 4 acres of gardens and grounds we are a family owned & operated Tourist Park offering large private sites & cabins with water views.

Base yourself with us & enjoy staying in a quiet tranquil park and take the opportunity to explore the Gippsland Region.

As a starting point to visit the Gippsland Lakes, investigate the nearby Victorian alpine high country, Ninety Mile Beach, cycle the Gippsland Rail Trail or even just as a convenient stop off on the way to or from Melbourne, we welcome all visitors to our Tourist Park.

The amenities are immaculately clean, heated and enhanced by a well- appointed camp-kitchen complete with television, microwave, fridge and heater which adds warmth in the cooler evenings and laundry facilities. The undercover barbecue and eating area together with a number of open fireplaces make wonderful meeting areas and a playground for younger children is sited close at hand. Picnic tables are readily available for campers to enjoy a meal and socialize while keeping an eye on children at play.

For the marginally more energetic, Apex Park is a short walk away and offers an array of play equipment, a BMX track and access to the Gippsland Rail Trail. Visitors may also access the adjoining council swimming pool when open.

There is also a V-line Train that travels daily to & from Melbourne & we are walking distance from the train station – so when staying with us you can utilise this service & spend a day in Melbourne.

We are just a 5 minute stroll from the  town centre, offering the all the delights of a small town which includes the local bakery, butchers, café’s, gift shops, gallery, Courthouse Theatre, pub  and the exotic Turkish Magic.

AND YES WE ARE PET FRIENDLY

Testimonials

  • January 2016
    We don't often write reviews but Stratford on the River Tourist Park is worth writing about. We recently enjoyed a 3 night stay over the busy New Year period. Having two small children we found the park to be ideal. The setting is very picturesque, our cabin had a great view of the river. Amenities are more than adequate and the kitchen well equipped (we cooked all of our own meals). The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Stratford is well located if you are looking to explore the lakes region. ………..
  • Riverside Relaxation - April 2016
    We spent two nights in a two-bedroom self-catering cabin with a deck overlooking the Avon River – and pretty sunsets. The cabin was clean, comfortable, well equipped, quite roomy and surprisingly private. The bathroom was compact, but overall we felt it was very good quality for the price. The park is a couple of minutes walk to Stratford’s main street with a few shops providing all the necessaries. The bakery is not to be missed. The Stratford swimming pool next door is free-of-charge to park guests. Although closed at this time of year, it would be very tempting on a hot summer’s day. Overall, the cabin was more than we had expected in a small country town. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

    Room Tip: Choose a riverside cabin. They come with both privacy and a lovely view.
  • “Great position and excellent showers” - March 2016
    We had a riverside powered site. It was a beautiful afternoon, and then the showers with good pressure, excellent fittings and plenty of hot water made writing a review a necessity. Stratford is a small country town, but with every service……
  • “Restful and Comfortable Stay” - March 2016
    We only stayed a night but, this was one of the most spotless and pleasant cabins we've ever stayed in. The view over the Avon River was beautiful! The cabins were extremely comfortable and tastefully fitted and included extras such as heated lighting and towel warmers in the bathroom. Highly recommended for a restful stay or a stopover on the way up or down the east coast.
  • “Beautiful River Front Views” - February , 2016
    The staff were absolutely delightful and very helpful. We stayed 2 nights with 2 powered sites (lovely grassed sites) as well as 2 cabins, so we could attend a family members wedding. We enjoyed our stay, with a short walk to the Amenities which were very clean, great showers. Camp kitchen was substantial and clean. The kids loved the playground which was behind our camp so made it easy to watch them. Husband tried his hand at catching a fish. Short walk to town which has everything we needed.

    Room Tip: Ask for a cabin or powered site on the river side.
  • “Stunning River Views - Short Walk to Facilities” - June 2015
    The staff were absolutely delightful and welcoming. I planned to stay for one night and left 3 weeks later . . . Enjoyed the beautiful clear and warm waters of the Avon River. So many parks, gardens, walks, history within a short walk. My powered site overlooked the Avon River and the valley across to the mountains in the distance. The beautiful Gippsland Water Dragons visited daily. Loved It !!!!!!!!!
    Stayed February 2015, traveled on business
