My wife and I made the twitch last Saturday and liked it there so well that we
stayed an extra night. Yes the gull is very obliging! We have traveled around
(all the way around) birding Australia over the last 11 months and the Venus
Bay Caravan Park is one of the nicest places we have stayed. We usually camp,
but we splurged on a cabin with a gorgeous view of the bay and it was only $95
a night. We also had takeaway there both nights and it was delicious as well as
very reasonable. I highly recommend this twitch and this place!
