The resort is on 140 ha. nestled in a wonderful bush setting on the Iguana Creek, East Gippsland Victoria, an excellent feature being the 2.6 ha. Lake.


Accommodates 300 people over 2 campsites, with Iguana Creek resort catering for larger groups of up to 188, while Lakeside Resort caters for numbers of up to 112. Bright and cosy carpeted bunkrooms with central heating, sleeping up to 8 per room. Wheelchair accessibility and facilities for the disabled.
