After staying in Coffs Harbour for the last few trips and finding Coffs to be too busy and too noisy we decided to try something different. Pushing on for another 20 mins to stay at Waterside in Woolgoolba was a welcome surprise. Well appointed cabins set in a quiet atmosphere was just what we needed. Priced competitively we have booked...

We were 2 couples who stayed for a couple of nights in the Osprey Eagle cabin on our way to QLD from Sydney. It was great to have 2 equally sized bedrooms each with an ensuite. The space was a little tight for suitcases but adequate. The kitchen was well equipped and was easy to use for cooking. Also great...

We only stayed for one night and the evening we were there had torrential rain so I cant imagine we saw everything in its best light!

Booked for an overnight stop during a long journey from the Gold Coast to Canberra, we chose this due to reasonable reviews and the advertised rates - which were payable on arrival.

Lovely modern and clean cabins. Beautiful setting overlooking the lake which leads to the sea within a 5 minute walk, where we spotted over 10 kangaroos up on the hill?

At first, I thought the rooms would be noisy due to the proximity to the road. However, it was very quiet. A short walk takes you along a small lake to a secluded beach. We even saw kangaroos along the way! The only discomfort we had was that the air conditioning is in the living/dining area & not in the...
