A nice camp right on the beachfront and turn left at entrance to camp and you are at the shops within about 10 metres. The amenities were really good and clean. Really liked the camp kitchens with fridges microwaves and even a TV mounted on the wall. We stayed in our caravan and had a fabulous time. The only small... More

Thank you for the very positive review. Unfortunately camper van doors can be noisy however we find this impacts very little on our holiday makers. We do strive to provide excellent facilities and service and it is nice to see we have again met this expectation. We look to forward to seeing you again soon. More

Great little park which is beach front to byron bay beach by walking down a few steps at the back of the park. Spotless amenities and helpful staff. Only downside I thought was it would be helpful to travellers to have more wifi access and could be a little cheaper.

Thank you for the response. We do give a free allowance of wifi on a daily basis. Additional amounts may be purchased online. I do hope the access to this was Ok as it has recently been upgraded and should be able to be accessed throughout the whole park. I hope you visit us again should you make the journey... More

We passed through during the end of Autumn. Excellent spot literally behind the main street. Beach access and close proximity to the shops in the main part of town. Byron bay speaks for itself with excellent restaurants and shopping not to mention the beach. The caravan park is old but well maintained. This is not a resort style park relying... More

We booked here because it was a lot more affordable then other places in the area. We were a bit worried we were gonna end up in a dodgy place. Absolutely awesome! We stayed in a hippy hut and were quite impressed with how it was set up. The staff were also very friendly and fantastically helpful with providing assistance... More

We travelled to Byron Bay, enroute to the Broadbeach Blues Festival, and stayed at the First Sun Holiday Park. The ensuite lodge was small, with very little storage room. It had a comfortable King bed, which was great. The BBQ and kitchen area was clean, well set up and well maintained. We had all our meals in this lovely garden... More

Perfect location on the beach & right in Byron Bay town centre, so an easy walk to shops & pubs, & an exceptional hike up to the lighthouse. No pool, playground or jumping pillow etc, which is fine with us being a couple (that's one more reason we like this park). Pay the extra & book a beach front site... More

We stayed in a powered site on the beachfront. There were BBQ facilities nearby and a beautiful beach on the doorstep. Park is right on the edge of town and there is noise from the pubs/clubs but not unacceptable for its location. We didn't have trouble sleeping. The park is possibly one of the most expensive in Australia, but you... More

Friendly staff, clean facilities and a relaxing holiday. Special shout out to the security guard who was quick to get onto a rowdy group the first night and chased thieves down the railway tracks with two surfboards that were stolen in the middle of the night from our campsite and got them back on the third night 😀

We wanted a beach view site for two nights but were sold out.....good .....because you could not see the beach for trees and bushes.....photo very deceiving....was given another site next to fence where next door was a noisy bar in the evening.....poor wifi....... At 75dollars night it was a complete rip off.

Thank you for taking the time to review our park. I am really sorry but we are not in a position to control any noise from outside the park boundaries. I note the fee charged was actually for 3 guests staying. I hope you decide to visit us again on a weekend when there is not a public holiday as... More
