Great natural environment, with numerous kangaroos just lazing around the park. Colourful parrots in abundance and even a goanna making a daily visit around lunch time. It is a well maintained park with a clean ablution block. Close to lake with shallow areas suitable for small children. This is not a luxurious place but it is quiet and relaxed, inspiring... More

"Enjoying the serenity" is a big part of Durras North. The kangaroos are definitely always in relaxation mode and it is always great to see our guests soon adapt to this relaxed way of life. Am pleased you pointed out that we are not luxurious. We have purposely kept the park the way it is. We have found many of... More

We have been making an annual pilgrimage to Durras Lake North for 10 years now. We stay in the lovely retro cottages. They are a delight with the simple amenities you would expect but there is always more - each year you can tell the owners have worked on the cottages - improving the deck or replacing something in the...

10 years of visits to Durras North. Well done! A large portion of our guests have been coming to our park for many years and they also appreciate having the park kept in its original condition. Yes, we have made a few changes over the years but we still try to retain the essential character. It is not for everyone.... More

First thing I'll mention is the kangaroos that are everywhere, just lazing about the place, they really inspired us to do likewise, take it easy and relax on our break. We were also very happy to buy a bag of seeds from the owners and feed the birds (a mixture of king parrots, rainbow lorikeets and rosellas) at the front... More

Hello TassieLad. Great to see you "Loved it". It sounds like you really made the most of Durras North. Kangaroos, parrot, the walks and of course, a cappuccino! With regards to the free Kayak Hire, yes this is a marketing arrangement with Trip Advisor which requires that special code to activate the offer. We are sorry you missed out but... More

A wonderful place to stay while exploring the local area. We were amazed by the amount of wildlife that was right on our cabin doorstep. A truly unique experience for us. The cabin was very well equipped and we had a really nice stay. The eco-friendly touches were welcome as well. Staff were very polite and gave us some really... More

Hi Daniel and thanks so much for taking time to write a review. A great time at present for watching the kangaroos as many of the young Joeys are leaving their pouch to explore their surrounds. Also we have had a couple of Masked Lapwings lay their eggs directly below our clothesline so that is out of action for a... More

To visitors from overseas who want to have close encounter with the national animal of Australia, this is the most suitable place, bar none. Arriving late around 7 pm, it was all dark and we couldn't see much. But when we woke up the next morning, wow, there were mobs of kangaroos at the back of the cabins. They are... More

This is why we have the worlds only International Kangaroo Guarantee! We've never had guests stay with us who haven't seen the kangaroos here at the park. Very pleased your daughter enjoyed the experience. The nature walk you referred to is the Discovery Trail, our most popular bushwalk - and for good reason. We are concerned about the smell from...

There are so many kangaroos here that each cabin provides a 'roo poo rake' to clear a path to your car! The kangaroos come by choice but they are pretty tame and just look at you without jumping away as you walk past. Our old blue heeler didn't worry them and vice versa. This is a pet friendly place, which... More

This is by far my favourite place to stay on the south coast! The park is in an amazing location with beautiful natural surroundings. This was my 3rd time staying here in a year and it won't be the last! We have stayed in 'The Van' twice and also stayed in the Silverstar glamping. The camp sites here are the... More

I travelled to the NSW South Coast with my Dad for a fishing getaway. We were going to try a few locations, North Durras was our first stop. We didn't leave for a week! We enjoyed fishing on the beach (off the rocks) and in the lake, took some bush walks and hikes, enjoyed the wildlife (daily visits by kangaroos,... More

We always try to get out of the Town to camp in our Caravan.. So glad we found this Holiday Park, as it was perfect!

We booked this site for just one night as we were travelling along the coast and wish we could have stayed longer. On arriving at our cabin there were about 40 kangaroos on the grass ready to greet us. They did not bound away as I expected but stayed put watching. Our cabin was slightly dated but very big compared... More

Thanks Wizardwil for your review and we wish you could have stayed longer as well. The weather over that time was pretty ordinary but it looks like you made the most of it anyway. The parrots and kangaroos are always here. They don't like the rain either! Thanks again for staying. More
