Have just spent 3 nights at Koala Shores. We had Cabin 30 and met friends who had a caravan site. Whilst the cabin was mostly OK, there was virtually no TV reception (very pixilated unwatchable SBS only). Documentation in the unit explained that TV reception had been poor since the change to digital. Our friends about 50 metres away had... More

so peaceful sitting on the cabin verandah near the water. Cabins are clean, comfortable and great for families. My teenagers loved the pool, the jumping pillow, putt putt golf and there is much more to do. We havent been in a few years and the park has been improved - looks great without the old onsite permanent vans - very... More

Fabulous park, family friendly, amenities were spotless, kids loved the kids club. Plenty to do and keep the kids busy. Good selection of water activities on offer. Peddle carts and putt putt golf and a jumping pillow provided hours of fun. Great pool and cafe. Staff were very friendly and approachable. Great boardwalk providing good access to Lemon Tree Passage.

We stayed over the holiday period and we can't wait to go back. Staff are always friendly, courteous and helpful. The cabins are clean and comfortable. The amenities are good and cleaned regularly. I like to start the day with a walk into town by the water - lovely!

Great place to stay. Staff were very friendly and checking in was easy. Checked to make sure our campervan would fit easily on the site. All the amenities were very good. The park is right on the foreshore and there are some lovely walks if you want to go for a bit of a wander. If you’re lucky you might... More

We camped for four days over the xmas period, it was a sight for sore eyes, absolutely beautiful, serene location. All facilities available, very clean amenities and awesome staff. Must praise a staff member Brad, he was very kind and helpful, and went over and beyond his duty, to make our stay more pleasurable. Thank you Brad:)

Our family of four have just spent a week at koala shores, we have enjoyed every minute of it beautiful facilities and wonderful management team who are friendly and social amongst the guests of the park. Good spot for fishing and family activities as well as excellent free activities in the holidays provided by the park.

This was the first time me and my family went camping and it was beautiful. Plenty activities for the children and adults. Not to far from nelson's bay and other places. So many places to visit outside the big 4 koala shores

We cannot rate this park highly enough. The staff are all very friendly even on the busiest day of the year when we checked in. The grounds are beautiful and clean and with so much to do. The kids were exhausted by the end of the day with plenty to do including a huge jumping pillow, putt putt golf, playground,... More
