My daughter and I spent 2 nights here. I found the rooms clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. My daughter loved our evening spa and walks along the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Lovely staff and great amenities.

Nice clean and well kept park, stayed in a one bedroom cabin and it was very well appointed with large beds and all the facilities that one would expect. The down side was that there is 3 cabins in a row and the noise dose travel through the floor and walls. WIFI connection was pretty ordinary as it kept disconnecting... More

Park is well kept. Our cabin was OK. Fairly clean. We had an OK night sleep on Thursday, but Friday & Saturday was a different story when there were people staying in the cabins around us. We can hear the conversation & swearing next door to us. Footsteps noise from the cabins around us all night waking the kids up.... More

Ouch! That's not good. Sorry that you experienced such a disturbance. We have a 10pm noise curfew and display the curfew on all advertising of cabins and it is a requirement that all guests confirm in writing that they will abide by the curfew when they check in. So something has gone amiss. We have a security service patrolling the... More

We're Sydneysiders and have discovered "The Gong" as a great weekend getaway that's a hit with our four year old daughter. The rooms are very tidy and have everything we needed.

The park is well-maintained and the facilities excellent. However, we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and all of the rubbish bins in the caravan area adjacent to the beach were full and overflowing as they were when we left on the Monday. Also, the park does not have a dump point for black water. When we enquired, we were told... More

Thanks Graham for your feedback and constructive comments. We have our own garbage truck and our practice is to pick up bins on Mon + Wed + Fri. Some heavy weekends we do a pick up, other weekends we put extra bins out to take the load. Last week we purchased an extra 20 240L bins to increase our capacity... More

We booked a beach side pitch but was placed in a unsecured and dilapidated pitch on the other side of resort next to a main road. Road noise all night, trains all night and opposite a night club so dont expect to sleep until 3am. Worst of all random drunks jumping the visitors parking fence to gain access, great when... More

Just north of Wollongong is this gem of a place for a little getaway. The cabins are inexpensive & right on the beach. There is an indoor pool, spa & sauna & the Towradgi Beach Hotel is directly across the road & the food there is some of the best bistro food you will find anywhere, it's restaurant quality at...

Our family had to make a quick trip down to Wollongong so needed to find some quality budget accommodation for a night. I didn't expect too much for $100 a night, but was pleasantly surprised by a clean, modern, well equipped family room when we arrived. There's great facilities on site as well to help tame the wild (bored) kids... More
