“Used to be great - New management lets it down dramatically”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Have stayed here twice before and had a great time. This year the ground is under new management and they leave a lot to be desired. You feel as if you are being constantly watched and harrassed by their militant style. We will not be returning and neither will several of the people we went with. Its a shame as it used to be a very relaxed and friendly park to visit but this is now a thing of the past. I would recommend that potential visitors keep driving there are plenty of lovely spots to stay on the Coffs Coast with parks that are visually as nice if not better and the hosts of these parks would have to be more accommodating as they probably understand that they are running a holiday destination not a prision camp. Very Dissapointing!!!

Stopped into Moonee Beach Holiday Park on our way to Qld. We had intentions of camping the whole time so booked an unpowered site for 2 nights. The camping grounds are good, well looked after and the amenities block is very clean and requires a code so only park visitors can use them.
The holiday park is literally on the beach, with a lot of sites to see, at low tide you can walk across the channel to the beach. After our two nights we went up to Qld but returned for a further 3 nights at Moonee Beach on our way home. This time however stayed in a cabin as we were over camping. Stayed for a further 3 nights and the cabins have what you need. Clean and tidy. They are obviously not 5 star but are good value for money and very homely. The staff here were very nice as well and look forward to returning.

We had a lovely week long family holiday. The grounds were well maintained and looked after as was the ammenities.
There is a lovely BBQ area that is undercover with a TV, Fridge, Microwave adn sick for all visitors to utilise.
We stayed in a cabin which was well maintained and modern.
The location is ideal with a tidal creek between you and the beach. There is also a public picnic area near the creek. There is also a lovely beach or forrest walks. Lovely views from the headland.
We even saw a few whales splashing around while sitting around a table near some of the cabins, that was great and the kids enjoyed it.
There is a shopping centre just off the highway as you are heading into Moonee Beach which has pretty much everything you need and you are only 5-10 minutes to Coffs Harbour.
Will recommend this holiday park.

We were instantly impressed at the beauty of Moonee Beach and fantastic setting of the holiday park over-looking a river, beach and head land. The location is easy too access but we felt we were far away from civilisation. Great coastal forrest and beach walks too. Some people manage a holiday park as if they were a prison warden. Not Jill at Moonee Beach, she understands hospitality. We will be back for a longer stay soon! Thanks again Jill!

Again another fabulous stay with helpful staff - Heather and the lady whose name begins with M (sorry can't remember your name). Looking forward to our visit later in the year!
A well kept site and excellent location.

I love Moonee Beach - this is a great little caravan park, particularly for families with young kids, the outlook over the estuary to the beach is amazing. The tidal estuary is great to paddle in and play around on the flats during low tide (lucky to get past thigh height at its deepest) and for a better swim (up to neck height) at high tide. Be careful of the beach as it is unpatrolled, a bit rough and we have seen some decent sized sharks not too far out!
To the right there is a lovely headland that looks out to split solitary island, north to Emerald and south to Sapphire, they have recently put a great lookout and walkway in, but be wary of snakes here as we have seen a few of them as well.
To the holiday park - we camp on a powered site and it is very reasonably priced around $40p/n during peak time, obviously as it is camping you need to share facilities at the amenities block, the front ones are looking very tired and struggle to deal with the numbers at peak times, however the regulars quite often use the 'ensuites' at the back of the park which are usually a better quality.
There are three types of cabins and we have been in all of them - the premium cabins (I think they are going to rename creek or river view) are the newest they are quite modern with all you could need during a holiday and a nice big veranda/deck only problem is they are incredibly pricey at $1750 per week in peak times which is more than some of the 4 star accom in the area. T
The second tier is the Deluxe cabin (I think will be renamed the ocean view cabins) these are a bit older than the premiums but I think are better value, they have a couple of bedrooms, small lounge and kitchen and they have extended the front deck which is great for morning brekky or arvo drinks, these run about $1500 per week in peak so still fairly pricey.
The third option is the Ensuite cabins which are fairly basic and don't have any decent views or a deck but I would definitely consider for a family (has double bed and bunks) that are looking to keep the budget down but don't want to camp, I can't remember the prices on these but think it was a fairly less than the others.

If you get sick of BBQ's and don't want to cook the Moonee Beach Tavern down the road does great pizzas and pretty good food in general, there is also a large shopping centre next to it (probably 600m from the park) but it must struggle to survive in non peak periods as it only has a Coles and about another 5shops with about 8 vacant store fronts as well.

A great place to go to relax and swim and do as little as possible if you want to!

Room Tip: I would go with the Deluxe Cabins (2nd tier of pricing) they are a bit older and smaller but have a...

We love Moonee. We've been here quite a few times over the last few years on our way to and from the Gold Coast. Grounds look lovely and well cared for. Even with this rain we still smile. Very clean amenities. Problem with key code on amenities last night but it was sorted immediately. She came to tell us in the dark it was fixed within minutes of us reporting it. Thanks.
Wanted to add to the comment on the previous review as we saw the RSCPA man come in this morning and going into the office so the incident was reported. He came straight over to the site where the van was whilst we sat there. There have been a few dogs off leads but saw a manager Friday night asking one to be put on a lead. Not had this problem before, some people don't do as asked. Wouldn't make me worry about staying again as not had any problems when visited previously. The owners of the dogs that were sometimes not on a lead left this morning, they need to be responsible. If the rule is dogs on lead put your dog on a lead please.

Room Tip: Ocean Views are on there own at front of park and have a good view out to sea. Site D1 and D2 at f...
