What a fabulous swimming spot with something for all ages. We found Millicent a wonderful place to visit and the business people lovely. We extended our stay from three nights to six and would be happy to visit again

Lake looks great, water just a bit cold for me today. Take $1 coins ($1 buys 2mins of hot water) to use the showers, 50 deg C!

Beautiful for swimming. Great facilities. Big enough to handle large numbers. Restaurant on site. Enough shade is a bonus. Nice lawn. Parking and entry is free. Well done Millicent!
