Great location for a lovely park. Reception (Fay) was very helpful and happy to assist with a good site. Even arranged for assistance from Chris to assist us set up. A powered site with full width green turf matting made for comfort inside and outside with no walking in of sand etc. This park is situated with the sound of the surf close by. A lovely beach walk to the surf club for coffee etc. Immaculate amenities (the best ever!), heated swimming pool (if only had brought swimmers); a spacious camp kitchen and BBQ area. Entertainment at 5pm by bush balladeer Errol Gray made for a very happy hour. Seniors card discount of 10% and payment for 1 night was $35. A longer stay for sure next time.

This park adds to the attraction of being right by the beach with an excellent range of facilities and attractions. Our ensuite site had artificial turf over the whole area, making it very pleasant for walking barefoot, and outdoor sitting under the awning is just so much more comfortable. The ensuite unit was best equipped of any we have used, and spacious. At 4 30 pm we received an email from the park managers - happy hour was on at 5 pm in the barbecue area, with live entertainment for two hours. There was a good number of people there, despite it being away from busy times, and quite a few young families. The park is well laid lout, with big sites, wide roadways and a host of family oriented facilities eg wtaer park, jumping pillow etc. We could only stay one night, but reckon we will be back some time.

Wow - this park is Kids Heaven! Having said that most of their actvities ie water park/swimming pool, jumping pillow & mini golf are right away from the van sites. I would have given this park a 5 if the internet hadn't been so frustrating!

Liked:- Very well run - excellent set-up in the spotlessly clean amenities with two separate sections with toilets & showers in each for both Men & Women so when one was being cleaned, the other half was still available.
Disliked:- Although the park offered free internet of 300MB per day - it was extremely slow most of the time and frustrating trying to get pages open. Each time you signed in it seemed to 'forget' your password so you had to click to get a new one.
Parking:- Not really a good arrangement for signing in - only room for one rig, otherwise wait in the street.
Added Touches:- Free morning tea on a Tuesday, free Balladeer/Comedian another night; great entertainment provided and park patrons were sent a text advising them of this on the day. Great Customer Service
Local Information:- the Fat Fish restaurant is open from 8am each day and serves lunch each day but only open at night on a Friday and Saturday. Excellent menu and chef.
Road Conditions:- If heading north to Bonny Hills take the Kew exit. The Information Centre just before the village on the left 'The Big Axe' has a good size carpark with a dump point on the left hand back corner. Very clean toilets there and the Info Centre itself has lots of unusual local handicraft items for sale.

We have been visiting this park over the past few years and it gets better each time. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. We requested a drive through site and were given a huge corner site. The ensuite sites are brilliant with new large synthetic grass areas. Short walk to the beach.
