What else can you do while you're here:

- Dont cook, Go to the pub - do you remember country style counter meals as a kid.? If the pub isn't your scene the cafe in town does a great burger, and dont start me on the chips.
- Get the kids to bring their pushbikes, frizbees, basket balls, they can play in the reserve adjoining the park for hours and hours. See if you can get them to leave their electronics at home as service is minimal. You might even get them to interact with you, now wouldn't that be good.

Stuff you need to know before you come:
Stay at one of our other "Absolute Waterfront" parks!
Absolutely Fantastic for the kids. Clean excellent facilities. Friendly and helpful caretakers. Make sure you take supplies, bread and fuel a must.
Friendly and very helpful managers. Lake Catharabra is perfect for kids because it is quite shallow. The amenities were clean and well maintained. Two cafes in easy walking distance, and a pub with slightly expensive food. We found the other campers generally good natured and friendly, and were impressed by offers of help from other campers. Our main reservation was the crowded nature of the site because it had been advertised as having secluded tent sites. In January this is certainly not true and the tents are within metres of each other.
Just had our third time staying at the campground. It's such a great spot! Bush camping on the shore of Lake Cootharaba ... a very shallow and safe lake for children to swim and kayak in. Great small boat sailing, wind surfing etc too. Highly recommend his family friendly camp ground!
Have been coming to Boreen Point for over 20 years! Amenities are clean and caretakers are friendly and always up for a chat! If your after somewhere great for the kids and not going to break the bank this is the place for you!
