Family of 5 stayed in a spa cabin during Easter - good cabin, well equipped and great mattresses. Location is beautiful and the place is well equipped, with a large pool. The grounds are well maintained, everything works and you can tell the place is very well run. Wally's daily delivery of fresh oysters and prawns made my stay, while... More

We were lucky to get a waterfront site, booked it for a week, and decided to stay longer. We had to shift to the site next door, so we did and stayed a further week. The sites along the waterfront are gorgeous, there is a jetty, seating with shade and a beautiful park with trees behind us. The swimming pool... More

Stayed here a few months ago to attend a friends party who lives in the area. We booked and paid extra for a Beach Powered site. Upon checkin we are given a site nowhere near the beach, actually about as furthest away you could get from the beach. Upon querying this, reception told us we did not book a Beach... More

We just purchased our first caravan and wanted to do a weekend away to test everything out. After lots of research we chose Koala Shores Holiday Park and went up there last weekend and we were very happy. We chose the premium water front site which was better than we expected with uninterrupted water views, beautiful. We are not sure... More

Have visted this park a few times now. Stayed in the villas - clean, comfortable, peaceful. The grounds are well maintained, the staff and managers are friendly and responsive. My children had fun on the pedal arounds and its waterfront so I can enjoy a quiet fish when I want. Even saw a Koala inside the park. A great getaway.

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

I stayed in a water view suite which was clean and tidy , it had everything needed for our stay. The staff were very friendly and available for anything we needed. The park was busy over the weekend but quietened down on Sunday night . The river is right on the doorstep with a boat ramp , the only thing... More
