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

Fantastic location, spent hours just floating around in the lake and going for walks. Stayed in 'The Van'. Comfy and well equipped but sleeping area a little cramped. Hire a Kayak and explore the lake if you have the time. The upper parts of the lake are beautiful and there is abundant birdlife to be seen. Terrific spot to relax.

Relaxing is what lots of people come here to do and pleased to hear you were out on Durras Lake doing just that. With the birdlife, there is reportedly 207 species in the Murramarang National Park so very popular with twitchers as well. Thanks for your review. More

Stayed at Durras Lake North Holiday Park for 3 nights in an unpowered site with my wife. This was my first camping experience and LOVED IT. As a city boy I was surprised to see the wild life so close to our camp site with kangaroos joining us for breakfast every morning (of course do not feed them) The staff,... More

Woohoo! Another convert to camping. This is what makes it all worthwhile. Going camping generally involves 5 critical factors. Good weather. Good campsite. Good location. Great attitude. Wanting to go again! Well done and getting all 5 right! More

There is so much to do in this area and Durras Lake North Holiday Park is, in our opinion, the place to stay to enjoy them. I dislike the wide open featureless camping grounds that one usually finds. These are open to the howling wind and rain and afford you no comfort or privacy when you are trying to cook,... More

Thanks for your great review. Particularly like the last sentence... "a magical place that one seldom finds but if you do, it enriches your life." Living at Durras North has certainly enriched our lives but getting to meet people such as yourselves who appreciate the place makes it just so much better. We love to share our favourite walks and... More

I am really looking forward to come back to this place: watch the sunrise, go bush walking and kayaking, just lie at the beautiful beach or drink a coffee and speak to the lovely people at the shop. There is something to do for everyone. A daily highlight is walking through the kangaroos lying on the grass on the the... More

As a backpacker from Germany I normally see a lot of touristic places. Therefore the Durras Lake North Holiday Park is like a hidden treasure for me. The location is just perfect: the wonderful lake and the ocean in front of the park, the beautiful national park with its wildlife in the back. It's a perfect place to come down... More

Hello Julia. Having travellers from all around the world is a highlight of operating this holiday park. Always great to hear about peoples travels around Australia. Many come here just to see the kangaroos. Once they arrive, they soon realise that Durras North offers much more than the kangaroos - bushwalking - kayaking - the beach and more. Glad to... More

I've been travelling for 5 years, and this has to be one of the best (for me the best was in WA) I've ever been to. Really well maintained, great facilities. I stayed here with my mate whom I hadn't seen for 3 years, great place to catch up, the beach is not so far and the water is crystal... More

We are just back from Durras North and we loved it. We were recommended by friends who go there every year and I think we will probably be going every year from now on as well. We already booked our powered site for next January. The camping site is in a great location and it is well maintained. Lots of... More

Thanks for your feedback. Glad to hear you are able to come and stay with us again next summer. The open air movies are very popular but I need to point out that we only screen them during the December/January school holiday period. Also pleased you liked the shop. Saves people having to drive to Batemans Bay for their basics. More

Probably the best camp site we've stayed at in Australia. We avoid 'tourist parks' and love quiet, bush land camping without generators and overcrowded sites - North Durras is just that! The amenities are clean, the park is well maintained and the kids loved the movies under the stars! And each site has a fire pit which is fantastic. We... More

Great place for camping. Stunning, clean and large sites, clean amenities, convenient store on site - but it is not tacky or commercial. Fantastic birdlife, kangaroos all around, possums and goannas too. Lots to do - swimming, kayaking, bushwalking, bird watching. Or you can just do nothing at all and watch the kangaroos do their thing. We'll definitely be back!
