Hi there all, we are Terry and Denise Park from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Winning the Dometic Follow the Sun competition has given us the opportunity to explore this great part of New South Wales! Upper Hunter Country has so many surprises.

Sandy Hollow is a small country town in the Upper Hunter situated on the Golden Hwy. Sandy Hollow Tourist Park situated in the centre of town has the only entry to Giants Leap with dramatic sandstone cliffs that overshadow this quiet town. Terry along with myself a three mates attempted to climb these imposing sandstone cliffs, The boys made it to the top after about one hours climb but the girls were not as energetic and made it only half way before retreating back down.

The summit had great views to Mt Dangar and Goulburn National Park and the boys could see the town, caravan park and even a extremely long coal train meandering through the valley.

Sandy Hollow Tourist park is set in natural bushland a beautiful place with magnificent scenery. We have enjoyed the peace and relaxation in this spacious setting, the park has a large swimming pool as well as children's wading pool. Playground and fully enclosed trampoline and the large grassy areas makes for a great family stop over.

Great camp kitchen with two free BBQ areas. Guest laundry, internet access and a pub right across the road what more do you need!
