Apart from a very unwelcoming encounter with the cleaner when we arrived this place was great. We stayed in the casuarina cabin which was perfect size - having the huge deck basically doubles your space. The water park & jumping pillow were a huge hit with my 3yr old and definitely a big part of the attraction to this park....

Stayed for a week in the figtree cabins, very beautiful did not want to leave. Staff are friendly and maintain the grounds well. Salty's cove was a hit with my younger kids but as others have mentioned, the swimming pool is small. It looks like a backyard swimming pool and not really big enough for the size of the park....

This park is out of town, so it is admired mainly by peace lovers, cabins are really spacious and very clean, camping grounds are nicely spread out over a large area, I love how you can have a wood fire going outside your camp, it is a very unique park and worth a visit.

For anyone to bag this park would be a little unfair. It is a great place for a family with lots of things to do for the kids. We stayed in a Figtree Cabin which was very comfortable with heaps of room. The only thing we could complain about was that the exit clean from the last guest wasn't the...

We booked a 7 night stay here but left after 2 nights. We had booked a grass powered site for our van but less than half the site was grass - the rest was dirt. We couldn't use the outside area at all. The roads around were all dirt, and the areas surrounding the playground and waterpark (outside the waterpark...

Hi Mjth0mas23, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry we didn't measure up for your stay. Regarding your issues, I can only agree it was very dusty when you stayed with us. It had hardly rained leading up to Christmas and during peak times we simply couldn't rest your site. Our amenities were cleaned thoroughly at least three times...

Loved our 3 day stay. Wish we had booked longer. Heaps of room and the riverside grass (unpowered) sites are enormous. I love that we can have a fire (that's a deal maker/breaker for us). The crabs were around and the fishing was good straight off the boat ramp. Amenities were above average. We don't normality do caravan parks and...

Thanks for leaving such a good review Adventurer1975. I'm sure there are plenty of people like yourself who generally don't head to holiday parks like ours, but reading your feedback about the space we have even when busy might change their mind. Good to hear you had some luck with the crabs and got plenty of fishing done. Having access...

Plenty of sitting area around pool and waterpark for parents who want to just relax. Enough space so you don't feel you're sitting in people's laps. We were there for 7 days.

Thanks so much for leaving such a good review, we really appreciate it. Meeting new people is definitely something you get at holiday parks like ours that you don't find at other types of accommodation. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

A great park for families with children. They provide a lot of things for children (pirate water park, large playground, etc). The bathrooms are very modern and clean. A great spot for observing kangaroos. In Yamba you can swimming and surfing and there is a national park with rock pools where you can jump in from large rocks.

We stayed in Late November for 4 nights in a Figtree cabin, the cabin was clean and practical, the bbq on the deck came in handy too.

It was overcrowded, unsupervised , and just crazy whilst...

Hi Thane, thanks for taking the time to leave your review. We're glad the kids enjoyed the waterpark. Thanks also for your feedback with regards to the party at the waterpark. We have since made some changes to how our waterpark parties work based on this and other feedback so hopefully we won't run into this issue in the future....
