Hobsons Bay Caravan Park, Victoria
by new chap
My one week holiday to Victoria !!!
If you dont mind your kids being around drunks and drug addicts then Hobsons bay caravan park is ok.
It gets a lot of young people that travel, over the xmas break and even through to the tennis time in Melbourne, but if the noise and the booze and the fighting at all hours of the night are not your cup of tea then dont stay there.
We did and never ever again would I even think about that dump.
The toilets and showers are absolutely disgusting and filthy the water keeps getting turned off with no warning to anyone.
It appears they do all thir own repairs, broken drinking water pipes being repaired by the same people that repair the electricity around the park.
The lawns are a jungle and they do absolutely nothing about the park security.
We witnessed fights and when the owners were told about them they just shrugged there shoulders.
Personally I dont consider this park a safe place to be for kids or my wife.
It seems to us that this is just a dumping ground for all the flotsam and jetsam and dregs of society.
A wander around the park will verify all I have said, unregistered wrecks and buildings the jack built are everywhere in that park, the local council is a toothless entity it seems.
The most entertaining thing we saw when we were there was the Armed response team doing their thing one night and the police going in there night after night, sometimes two or three times a night,....
The constant noise of doof doof all day and night is not really that conducive to a good holiday in the Williamstown area of Victoria.
Apparently there is a pet rule for the park but it doesn't mean anything they say no dogs and only one cat but the place is overrun with moggies and dog shit on your shoes is no fun.
Turns out to be a busy one weeks holiday, we couldn't get home quick enough!!!
Is it only me or what ??
