My family & I just spent 4 nights in one of the Safari tents at Shoal Bay Holiday Park.
The tent itself was as clean as I would have expected from a tent, with just enough inside for a simple & relaxing stay. The bunks were great for my two kids & the queen size bed was surprisingly comfortable (sorry, when camping, you kind of expect a rubbish bed!).
We had no complaints about the park, the accommodation or the staff. All in all, it was part of a very memorable family holiday for us.
If I were to make any comments on the park though, I would suggest that the play equipment is probably due for an update & the location, despite being across from the beach, still lacks a swimming pool. I think these things would only add to the quality of this place & make it more competitive when being looked at alongside something a bit more modern.
Also, a great thing we wanted to share for the benefit of others looking into staying in the Safari tents, there are many types of bird wildlife that hang around this area, we were hand-feeding grass parrots, rosellas & even kookaburras & were surprised to find a green tree frog sitting on the light outside our tent after a night of heavy rain.
