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

Have stayed numerous times at First Sun both in the cabins and campground this time was disappointing :( Of course the best thing about this is the location to the beach and town centre, can't be beaten! However the quality of the cabins was poor for the price they charge. 3 nights cost us a small fortune of $775 the... More

Thank you for your review. It is very disappointing to hear that your stay did not meet expectations. I was actually one of those staff members rostered on the weekend and would have been more than happy to discuss any problems you experienced during your stay as unfortunately none of them were bought to my attention. Theft is something that... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our park. As mentioned we do offer accommodation to suit all budgets and desires. As mentioned by yourself - if you can afford it go the Ocean view Cabins the view is amazing of a beautiful sunny day. More

My family and I recently stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin. Nice cabin and reasonably priced. This location is excellent. So close to the beach, restaurants and shops. The public pool next to the holiday park is great. Friendly and helpful staff at the holiday park.

We booked a Hippy Hut for 3 nights and we were not disappointed! It slept 4 adults comfortably, and the en-suite bathroom was really, really nice! We appreciated the TV - we didn't think we'd end up using it at all, but we actually did at night. The outdoor cooking area is stocked with everything you could ever need -... More

Thank you for an excellent review. Our Hippy Huts are a little funky and create an atmosphere that cannot be created anywhere else in the park...... A little secret - we are in the process of seeking approvals to build more and look forward to seeing you again soon. More

We are staying in a cabin with beach views. What a lovely sound to wake up to each morning! Clean, well maintained caravan park, within minutes of the centre of town, bars, restaurants, shopping..and a great way to keep fit..by walking to the lighthouse daily. We will return.

We booked 3 cabins for a girls weekend and had anfantastic time. The cabins are spacious enough with aircon and excellent feqtures- decks with shade screens, bbqs, full size fridge etc. 2 of the 3 cabins were beachfront and the access to beach was so convenient. Amazing spot to watch the the january storms roll across the beach! The park... More
