We went for a 4 day short stay just a few hours north of Sydney. We had a powered caravan site in the "waterfront area". There is a mixture of slabs for vans and annexe or grass for the van and shade cloth for the annexe. The whole park is very well looked after and is right on the water... More

We have been fans of Big 4 Kiama and we thought we would try the north coast Big4 as the weather down south is cooling off The road trip was an easy 3 hour drive from Sydney. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park is very clean and quiet with great facilities. We stayed in a garden spa suite... More

My family and I stay on two water front sites a Friday and Saturday night ,it was so peaceful. We took precautions for mossies and sandflies but they must of went on holidays as well as none of us were bitten. The park was clean and tidy and the pool crystal. The only negative thing I can say is the... More

Another very good Big4. We stayed two nights in a Standard Water View Lodge. It is very spacious and well equiped. You face a beautifuk park and the river. It is very quiet and peaceful (may be little less during holidays season?). Be careful, this Big4 is alongside the river, there is another one close to the beach.

I am a local, I booked for my family, never again. This park used to be run correctly until the new owners took over. On booking over the phone I was not told about any extra charges and when I received the confirmation email I was disgusted to notice a $200 hold fee. After paying around $250 a night I... More

The facilities were all clean and staff were helpful and polite. The pool is fantastic spot to cruise with the kids, salt... More

The people at the reception at the time of entry was great and extremely helpful explaining the facilties around the place. We booked for a tent site for... More
