For the better half of a while, my family has been visiting the Holiday Park and the people are absolutely friendly, great fishing, nice welcoming atmosphere, good amount of facilities and nice place overall! If I had to recommend, I would definitely!

This year the only difference is the park management. I also have a couple of tips/hints for them: Get a personality Try to smile even... More

Shame about the management! As per the last review, they are just grumpy, no personality. We've been coming for years and to be honest I'm starting to wonder why!!! Let's start on the pros, amazing location!!! Scenic and just gorgeous and such a good swimming spot for family. The waves are great for learning to surf. The camp sites are... More

Dear Suzy We thank you for your review. Hat Head is a beautiful spot and we are proud of the park. The reason there is no fires allowed is the same across the state it is a safety issue one that is enforced by National Parks (as we are surrounded by National Park) and council we are simply carrying through...

Holiday here every year - love it! Creek is great for younger kids while beach is great for teens and bigger kids. Amenities are well maintained but grounds were a bit "unkept" this year. Agree with poida, somewhere to get a good coffee and cafe food would be a plus. Also found new managers to be (at best) unwelcoming and... More

Great place for the kids with the creek.Nice to see Hat Head hasnt really changed,but a decent cafe would be good. Not sure if the lady on reception this weekend was the manager ...Went to the office 3 times, not a smile or anything that resembled any inkling that she wanted to be there.

Fabulous spot and great camping ground with good facilities. Friendly staff and the location is spot on. Weather wasn't great which put a stop to the fishing but otherwise there is nothing but enjoyment to be had. It gets a big thumbs up and will definitely be back.

Stayed in Cabin 5 which was in a good location. Plenty of room in living area & great porch with table & chairs. Bathroom & Bedroom were a good size, but with 3 adults found bunk beds a bit confined - I ended up sleeping on lounge (but am slightly claustrophobic so probably fine for others). Had small maintenance problem... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and sorry to hear that you found the bunks confining. They are more so made for children to sleep on so this may have contributed. However we are pleased the caretaker looked after your needs and overall you had an enjoyable stay. We hope you stay...

We had our first taste of Hat Head hospitality on the October long weekend so the park was extremely busy but we had a great time here. The sites are very large and well grassed. The location of the park is great with the beach and river right on the doorstop. The walks nearby are just beautiful as is the... More

My husband and I stayed at Hat Head on a camping trip up the coast. We loved our time at Hat Head. The camping sites are very generous and it feels like you are among nature (unlike your big caravan parks with small, pegged out sites and no trees). The holiday park is perfectly located next to the beach and... More
