This was the first time that I have stayed in this style of accommodation and I will say I was very pleasantly surprised. Stayed in one of the Lagoon Spa villas and the villa was large enough for the 2 of us although 2 children would be comfortable in the bunk. Not right on the Lagoon but that was a...

Dear Steven, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. It's a pleasure to have welcomed you and to see how much you enjoyed your stay in the Lagoon Spa Villa. Your suggestion to leave the kangaroos alone is also appreciated. Wild animals can be unpredictable and as such we also do not recommend close interaction. We hope...

We spent a week on an ensuite site. We have a camper trailer and it fit really well on the concrete slab. The site was very large, the ensuite really clean and tidy, the water pressure was great, loads of hot water. The pool was beautiful with parts of it a bit heated, a couple of water slides too.

A recent caravan trip north required a stop over, so the perfect option for us was NRMA Darlington Beach Big 4 Holiday Park. The camping sites are extremely well laid out. The caravan sites would have to be the easiest for reversing into, with plenty of space between the sites. The nine hole golf course is very accessible, along with...
