We stopped here for a week on a powered site and had the most relaxing time ever. From the moment you walk into reception, the staff are very friendly, obliging and caring. The Café on the complex, even though not run by the caravan park is good.Meals are great and not overly priced. Maintenance are on to things straight away... More

We recently stayed in a lagoon villa on a trip back home. We couldn't park the car close to the villa, there was parking down a narrow street where you had the choice to get scratches on your car from the bushes or park further into the road and potentially block access.

Had a overnight stay here in the plantation villa. Great 2 bed cabin, very clean and spacious. We also had dinner in the restaurant on site. The food was ok, the pizza was better than the steak. The children loved the jumping pillows in the play area

While travelling up north with the family during the mid-winter school holidays, we booked a powered caravan site at Darlington Beach Resort. We didn't know anything about the resort before-hand - it was just the first NRMA-affiliated park in the area to pop up in our Google search results. I would happily stay at the park again.

We booked a site with an ensuite. The sites are well spaced and the facilities are fantastic. There are many options for kids and the service is fantastic. Just be ware that the showers in the ensuite are extremely slippery, I slipped and hit my head on the wall! Otherwise we had a good stay we would definitely be back.
