My family have been going to Yamba for 40 years. I basically grew up at the Blue Dolphin every Christmas and it is where I hold all of my favourite childhood memories. Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be able to take my own children there and was elated that it is still everything I remember...... but even better!
The park is completely geared for kids. The playgrounds are fabulous, the pools are fabulous, the activities, the hire equipment, the jetty & foreshore to fish off are all fabulous. I have 3 very active children aged 3,6 &7 and they were totally worn out by 7pm every night.
We stayed in a standard cabin that just has a double bed in the back with 3 bunks for the kids and a small basic bathroom with toilet & sink (no shower), a kitchen with full size fridge and a small dining area. It is honestly all you need. It is the only cabin I have ever stayed in and wouldn't ever change it. There is so much to see and do in Yamba/Blue Dolphin that you do not need a large cabin. The amenities block was sufficient for showering/bathing all the kids. & even though it is easy to cook in the cabin we had (free) bbq's everyday.
We went down to explore the rock pools around main beach and Angourie point which the kids loved. We had fish and chips on the hill and looked out for whales. We went for a beautiful swim at Turners beach. We went to the tavern and saw all the big fish under the jetty. We pumped for yabbies, fished off the foreshore & jetty and the kids loved riding their scooters around the whole park. You can also have your boat moored at the jetty for the duration of your stay which is very handy.
It is a stress free environment that is full of families where all the kids get to know each other and play together. I made life long friends when I was a child there who I still see to this day and now my kids are starting to have the same wonderful experience I had.
