This is a fantastic park for families. Great water park and indoor jungle gym. Well set out camp kitchens and the kangaroos that visit are quiet and add a nice aussie touch! It is located a nice distance from Coffs Harbour - close enough to only be a short drive from the tourist attractions and far enough away to not...

Booked over internet special offer pay 5 nights stay 7 nights. It is very pleasing that this park had this offer. The minute we arrived felt very welcomed. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Great facilities and neat tidy park. Beautiful beach short walk. Definitely will be returning, hopefully sooner rather than later. Please continue what you are doing.

We stayed as a large group of 5 families, some in un-powered sites others in cabins. The park was beautifully maintained, with so much to do for kids from 1 to 15 years old, water play, heated spa, jungle gym, playground and much more, the kids took their push bikes and scooters and joined the many other kids in the...

Good to see the water park finished, campground perfect as usual. Friendly staff, clean amenities, can't wait for my next visit. It's close enough to coffs and the walk around the headlands was amazing too.

As soon as we arrived I liked this site, and looking back, it's actually my favourite campsite in Australia. Over the little wooden bridge in the huge great camper van I've only been driving a couple of days so still getting used to was a little nerve racking. Our pitch, near the amenities was perfect. The beach was a short...

We had an amazing two night stay in this holiday park. Amenities are clean BBQ areas excellent no waterfront view but only a short stroll to the beach. The walking track was amazing. We would love to go back and stay again.

Ok, I should disclose I don't like crowds and artificially created atmospheres. This place has both. We stayed overnight on our way from Noosa to breakup the trip, and nothing else was available. It is a caravan park and I'm sorry to say but the word 'deluxe' does not apply in caravan parks no matter how you dress it up....

We recently camped for 5 nights and the kids (and us) loved the holiday. So much to do, the beach, pool, water park, jumping pillow, play area and movie nights. We all had a wonderful holiday and can't wait to come back.
