5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

What a lovely site!
The setting is superb on the beach edge with stunning views and amazing sunsets.
Kay and Keith are warm and welcoming hosts who run an immaculate campsite. All facilities clean and open and the grass beautifully kept. Such a shame we only had one night, it is worthy of a longer stay....next time!

Would recommend this camp ground to anyone.
It has a great location, 5 mins drive from the town, and right on its own little beach.
If you can, get the sites by the beach for a great view....
Plenty of amenities: hot shower, clean toilets....and if needed, kitchen area, BBQ area, Laundry and TV rooms.
Be good for the minimalistic traveller as everything is there...

We were able to catch a taxi from the park to town, which cost us a $20 trip.

Go and See for yourself!

Had a lovely break at Shelly Beach Holiday Park. Kay and Keith are a marked improvement on the last manager and have made a huge difference to the overall appearance of the park. Great to see the whole park with freshly mowed lawns, the wooden surrounds finished on the tourist cabins, no dripping or broken taps, to name a few improvements. Loved the friendly reception on arrival and eagerness to assist with anything at anytime. Looking forward to our Christmas holiday!

What a difference Kay and Keith have made in the short time they have been there! The grassed area of the whole park now looks well groomed, no long grass or lumps of long grass clippings all over. The greeting at registration was warm and welcoming so different to our previous 6 visits and every time we meet them during the course of each day we were there a smile and a quick chat contributed to the happy ambience of the place. All the facilities seemed cleaner and it is very obvious the whole area is receiving a long over due overhaul. We will be pleased to return not just because our fishing mad son in-law has invited us to join the family there but it is now a pleasant base to explore the area from. Just a shame the fishing wasn't so good this time.

Our night at Shelly Beach holiday park was everything we needed for a tranquil break out of the city, and more. From arrival to the front office to the time we left we had nothing but solitude and smiles around the park by the friendly owners, this along with native protected birds chirping around the clock. Considering it was school holidays we felt like the bay was ours, so a go on the rope swing and stunning sunset with wine on the beach later, we felt rejuvenated and ready for a good nights rest at shelly beach holiday park. Apart from the lawn mower and hedge trimmer operating what seemed like all weekend, all in all a very un-holiday-park-like stay, highly recommended!

Room Tip: Closest to beach are more private.

Thank you for your comments. We have taken on board the comments of the Lawn mower etc and as we are new Managers in the Park we will attempt to adjust the times we operate equipment around the Park when there are guests staying

We have just spent a week at Shelley Beach Top 10 with our children. We were greeted on arrival by the new hosts Keith and Kay, whom even though they had only been at the park for a few weeks were so very knowledgeable and helpful. They really went out of our way to ensure we had a wonderful holiday. We stayed in a cabin which was very comfortable and roomy. It was very well stocked with all we needed away from home. We were so impressed with the park , location and hospitality that we have booked a campsite over the summer holidays. We can`t wait to return. Thanks for everything Keith and Kay.
