Greetings:2019 Odysseans:
There was a misunderstanding with the Mansfield Holiday Park, with a member being told there were no spare cabins for the Odyssey weekend - 18 to 20 October 2019.  I have spoken to the Park management - they are unsure how this happened, but they confirm there are plenty of available cabins for the weekend.  In any event, the earlier you book, the sooner you know you have the accommodation you need!!  So, get out those diaries, confirm you are attending and book your accommodation at the Mansfield Holiday Park - 03 5775 1383!

It seems all full service cabins etc have now been taken.  See other notices
I believe some basic cabins (no WC facilities in cabins) are still available but do check direct
I believe caravan and tent sites are still available but again do check direct
Many other accommodation accommodation options do exist in Mansfield
