Mena Creek Hotel’s campground has re-opened as “The Paddock”

A big thanks to Rob Jeffrey, who describes himself as a Grey Nomad, for this campground update and photos:

Another low cost camp no longer as it was. Paronella Park have taken it over. It is now called The Paddock Caravan Park and is the overflow for Paronella Park. 

You have to buy tickets to Paronella Park to stay there $41/pp concession. That is for one night. We wanted to stay  2 nights so had to pay an extra $10. 

The are limited powered sites and many unpowered sites. There is no water, no toilets or showers. No dump point. All grey water is to be contained (in a dry paddock). Pets are allowed. The only advantage is you can enter Paronella Park multiple times.
