I think my wife might be thinking of you as we will be camping around the corner at Mt Moffat during the 3rd week of June. The luxury of one drop pit toilet between 30 sites, and very little water available :-)
Come to think of it, I don't think we have any 240v appliances in our camping gear anyway!
Enjoy yourself, each to thier own. Lovely place Canarvon.

Just had six days there.
Very well run, clean and tidy etc.
Staff are great-can't fault them in any way.
Just don't forget to fill your tank at Rolleston- or Injune depending on which way you get there- and your range- though that was not an issue for me as I have over 1,000 klms range towing my van.
There is a good road there but for just the last 20 klms, which are roughish, corrugated and chopped up dirt. (Take it slowly and no problem)
Take your best walking shoes though!
Cheers

Was there 21/22/23 March.
Brand new toilet and shower block, one of the best you'll find in any park.
Very dry though. You don't really need the guided walks. Must see Ward's Canyon (200 steps) and The Art Gallery.
The place needs a pool where you can cool off after a hard day's walk, actually the walking trails are not that difficult. We did 26km in 2 days without any prior training, we rarely walk anywhere and in our early sixties.
Just be careful not to step in the 'roo poo around your van site, they'll come knocking on your door!!
Last 20km in is good gravel........enjoy

ps: this gave us a taste for Cania Gorge near Monto....next time
