  • Office opening hours and check-in 2-5 pm daily

With powered and unpowered van and camping sites, plus bunkhouse rooms and a small cabin there are options to suit most visitors. While we try to make the visit to the EcoPark a good getaway from the stresses of city living, we do provide some basic creature comforts including an amenities block with male & female toilets, hot showers and laundry, a BBQ and a covered Camp Kitchen with cooking facilities.

The Conondale General store is a 10 minute drive away, this is the perfect balance between roughing it and convenience.

Public WiFi is available in the Ecopark and Village Green/Deck & Cafe.

Crystal Waters Village is home to around 250 people and we ask that you respect the privacy of our residents on their private lots during your visit.

While the Village Camping Area / Eco Caravan Park is surrounded by bush, there are several residences nearby and sound does travel. We ask all visitors to respect the peace & privacy of our neighbours, and noise levels must be kept down after 9pm.
