Our cabin was down the back of the park overlooking the park and river. The cabin was spacious and very well fitted out. The park itself appears to be in excellent condition and is well appointed. Overall this is an excellent family oriented park.

Great for kids - lots to do. Amenities good. BBQ facilities good, including a fridge. Some of the roads are not sealed, so there's a bit of dust around when cars drive passed. Lovely to be able to watch the kangaroos each afternoon.

Great review Feso, thank you, so glad your kids had a fantastic time and were kept busy! We are so lucky to have so much nature hoping and hanging around the resort as we are surrounded by National Park - they dont seem to mind the guests being around! It is a bit tricky to keep the dust down when it has been so dry - we do water regularly and have some areas of the resort that are tared so hopefully next time you can stay in a villa in this area. Thanks again, kind regards, Lucy

We stop at Trial Bay every year while traveling up and down the coast. We book a cabin at Sunshine South West Rocks to break our trip, have a swim and a slide in their pool, see the kangaroos roaming free through camp & the national park and have a good meal at Thai on the Rocks

Hi J0des444, you guys will love the Sunshine Tents - all the fun of camping but without the hassle! We hadnt had many mozzies as it had been so dry..we did get a bit of rain a few weeks ago so that may mean that, along with the rest of the mid north coast of Australia (;-)), there may be a few! The tents have flyscreens and some citronella based sprays will help! Thank you for your lovely comments Russel & Allan!

Hi Luke Thanks for your question. There is great fishing in South West Rocks - off the beach, boat or breakwall. We do back on to a Saltwater Lagoon where some people fish out of a canoe but Im not sure how successful they are!! There are so many things to do with Kids in the park that they will be fully entertained so your wife / partner may be happy enough for you to sneak off!! It is a 10 minute walk through to the beach or a 2 minute drive. Let me know if you need any further information! Thanks Lucy 02 6566 6142

"Pet friendly cabins have a lovely private area of the park with a nice outlook"
"tar roads a must"
"Eucalypt cottages a less expensive than those inside the park. 3 bedroom cottage only has 1 bathroom"
"For powered sites, try to avoid the sites mid-way between the two amenities blocks."
"currawong villa 8 has very very small shower."
