I'll take a drive down to Ballina in the next couple of weeks and take a look at the Ballina Beach Village.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

This is a very old website and the prices quoted here are not correct....however it is still pretty cheap in comparison to other venues.

Have got an email from these people and would you believe they quoted me a different price.

THE EMAIL
Here is what we have available for the long weekend in October.




I did not ask about a weekend in October PJ, I just asked for rates in general. BTW Cameron also quoted something like $54 per night for xmas time so obviously prices are at their discretion.

50% on booking and the balance 1 month before check in is way over the top in my book and I have wiped them off my list.....not interested, thank you.

Here is the reply email when i asked about the difference in prices From Ballina

Good afternoon Julieann,
My apologies for the confusion, the quotes I have emailed you are correct for the long weekend in October and your dogs are certainly welcome. We ask that when in the park you always have them on a lead, pick up after them and don't let them bark. At peak period times like Easter and New Year's it is particularly crowded and any dog with a tendency to bark or be aggressive would not be welcome. We have specific dog walking tracks where they can go off lead and really enjoy nature too!
Let me know if you have any more questions at all,
Kind regards,
Donna.
The Lord is my shepard,i shall not want......only sometimes.

So PJ, that would indicate the October weekend which is in school holidays is not considered peak or high season!!

They are still off my list with their conditions of payment......

There are ways dea....but not something you can really get into here. It is probably not so much that sort of barking to which they are referring....I think more like incessant barking or when you leave him/her to go to the toilet/laundry etc and the dog continually barks.

As much as I love dogs in general, two things that get right up my nose are barking as in yapping dogs and owners who do not pick up their own dog's 'barker eggs'......

That is an absolute requirement of every dog owner IMO.

Think the barge costs will put most people off FRM.....it certainly does me.

It's also still a ways off and the June weekend camp has not come off yet!!!

This sounds like something I would be interested in, probably with at least 2 of the girls (12 & 14).

But I would need a powered site for sure - me=very pampered camper. 8)

I am bumping this one again to see if there is still any interest.

We've not heard from Amanda in some time so it will be up to the members to decide if this proposed weekend camp is worth revisiting!!

Yep....Avis & I are still starters......
I have noticed that no-ones mentioned ''River Retreat'' down in Tweed-heads...Pet friendly, prices are fair, not to far to go, pool for the brave ones, fishing in the river ....clubs for those who chose to eat out....not sure about fires for cooking........

Yes that is a good one too Rosco.....I personally have not been there but friends of mine have been and they said it was quite nice.

For anyone else who may be interested, here is the website: http://www.tweedrivercaravanpark.com.au/

Only problem might be getting bookings in the school holidays.
