“Great beachfront location, plenty of wildlife”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We stayed at Jimmy's beach holiday park by coincidence as we were traveling through for a few nights and nothing else had available camping sites. We're so glad we did! Not only is the holiday park in a great location, it's quite natural, shady and spacious, facilities are clean and well maintained - loved the big bbq area - and we encountered so much wildlife! Lizards, Dingos, tonnes of birds, Wallabies and more! We were very happy with our stay!!

Thank you to the lovely Managers Karen & Barry we had a wonderful holiday at Jimmy's Beach we have stayed in many parks but this would have to rate as one of the best the lovely green grass was nice for a change instead of dirt from neglect. The BBQ areas were great and lovely and clean th amenities we clean and fresh looking. The short walk to the beautiful Jimmy's beach was a bonus. We will definitely be back. Well done Karen & Barry the park is a credit to you both.

The service from the managers Barry & Karen was both very friendly & helpful. The park itself was both clean & tidy . The camp kitchen was very camper friendly with a great bbq but it could do with a couple of gas burners The ammenities were always clean .I have stayed in many parks on the north coast & will deffinately return to Jimmys Beach .

Lovely compact but clean and well equipped cabins. Peaceful location with good BBQ facilities and short walk to the beach. Children loved the play equipment and riding their scooters around the park. Will be visiting again!

We had a a great weekend camping trip with our two small children and dog at Jimmy's Beach in February. All the facilities were new and clean and all campsites very generous in size. We never really had much use for the camp kitchen but even so it was very impressive with absolutely everything you would need and more (it even had a row of power points that were perfect for charging your phones and iPods etc). The camping ground is very well kept and our kids loved all the wildlife (they are still talking about the dingos, goannas, parrots and kookaburras they saw).
The location is also perfect with Jimmys Beach on one side and Bennetts Beach on the other which we found very convenient as both beaches are within walking distance.
We love camping with our dog and Jimmys Beach was great for this, they even supply bags to clean up after your pooch too.
So all in all we were very impressed and we will definitely be back (not during school holidays though so we can bring our dog along).

This holiday park features very sheltered caravan and camping sites - even as the North Coast flooded the shelter here protected us from the winds. When the rains came they were plentiful but the sandy sites meant the water drained away quickly.

Amenities are new and clean for campers so I can only guess the cabins would be similarly presented. Good laundry with washers and driers and clothes lines as well as a camp kitchen with BBQs under cover can accommodate small groups.

A short walk over the dunes in two directions results in water - in the east is Bennett's Beach. To the south is Jimmy's Beach - a more sheltered stretch of water and great calm water for kids or kayaks. Lots of sea grass washed up at the moment though.

On the way to Bennett's Beach you cross Beach Rd. A short walk down Beach Rd leads to the surf club (good for Sat pm drinks ) and Benchmark on Booner Restaurant (reviewed on TA). Local area is flat and quiet and great for cycling.

All in all a pleasant week spent here despite the cyclonic weather for some of our stay.
