Gorgeous location. Plenty of wildlife in and around: a chance to get close to birds and wallabies. We stayed in a caravan with an annex which was roomy. Disappointed by owners' dogs barking, no heater or electric blanket, very old soft bed.

Durras North is certainly a beautiful spot with abundant, very friendly wildlife. We are sorry your stay was not as you hoped and have taken your points on board. We do have a fan heater in the van with annexe which would have quickly warmed up your room. As the van is our budget accommodation electric blankets are not provided... More

The location is ah-mazing - picture perfect with cabins located on a pristine beach abundant with wildlife. Get up close and personal with the roos, do some bird spotting or take a walk along the beach. It's a low tide lagoon so perfect for kids or non swimmers. It's worth splashing out on an executive waterfront cabin which are super... More

I spent the weekend here with my family and was pleasantly surprised. I would highly recommend this park to anyone who wants a peaceful, relaxing and yet at the same time action packed weekend if that's what you want. Cant wait to be back with my young family. Kids loved it.

My wife, two children and I had to endure a Saturday night full of loud and extremely foul language by 5 men staying in the cabin next door. BBQ was started after 10.00pm, which is located just a couple of metres from our bedroom. Unlike other caravan parks we have stayed at, there is no information in the cabins about... More

I am terribly sorry to hear that you had an unenjoyable time here at Joalah. I am as disappointed as you are about this as we pride ourselves on people having an enjoyable holiday. Let me assure you this is an extremely rare occurrence. However, I feel your comments are extremely unfair. Your wife did call the office at 10:30pm... More

Joalah Holiday park is located in the sleepy North Durras lakes locale about 4 hours south of Sydney or 20 minutes north from Batemans Bay, which is the nearest town. If you are looking for a quiet getaway close to nature, I can recommend Joalah. Situated lakeside and beach-side, Joalah is ideal for families. Easy access to the lake for... More

This was a first-time stay for me at Joalah in September 2012, and as a lover of beach holidays, this one trumped them all for unparalleled beauty. We stayed for two nights in a waterfront deluxe cabin and enjoyed the peace and quiet that comes with the off-season. The distance from the cabin to the beach was wonderful, and the... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your short stay at Joalah Holiday Park and hope you return to enjoy this idyllic spot. Thankyou also for your feedback on how to improve our service. Unfortunately you stayed just before we put new mattresses in the cabins. As to having to wash the utensils/ crockery we apologize. Our cleaners have let us... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this holiday park because of its amazing view of the estuary and ocean, and the wildlife. We had a wonderful time with our children and grandchildren recently -- looking for shells, enjoying the lounging kangaroos, and hiking along the beach. It is near Pebbly Beach in Murramurrang National Park so there... More

We really enjoyed Joalah caravan park as it was the closest park to the beach. It was amazing to wake up and see kangaroos everywhere by the caravans and to feed the beautiful lorikeets and rosellas from our balconies. The cabin was excellent, lots of room and a well setup kitchen. We appreciated having DVDs to borrow from the office... More

We were told about Joalah Holiday Park from a work friend 2 years ago and I have to be honest with you we think this is Paradise on Earth! The waterfront cabins are really comfortable and they provide a home from home environment. They are very clean, well equipped and the layout is very thoughtful. The deck is the place... More
