I recently stayed at the Discovery Park Pambula for 1 night while on a tour of the coast and found the park to be filled with fantastic facilities. While my visit was only short it left me longing to return for a longer stay. Fantastic location right on the beach and close to all local ammenties while maintaining a friendly distance from the hustle and bustle of busy nearby holiday towns. I was impressed by the pool area (although I missed using it as i arrived and departed outside of operating hours, I was dissapointed that the general ppol facility did not stay open longer), the playground looked very neat and clean and fun, there was a kids club outdoor cinema operating (in a good location away from the general population)Laundry block closest to me was very neat and clean.
I stayed in a Ocean View Villa (2bedroom) and took some time to look around the bedroom/bathroom that i did not use and found that it had a bath for kids as well as a shower.
I would definaltey reccommend this park as a well run park with fantastic facilities for families and solo travellers alike.

We have stayed here a couple of times now & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It's paradise for kids with playground, jumping pillow, indoor & outdoor pools & games room! It will be even better after 12th December with pool playground construction finishing. It can be more expensive than other parks but it's right on the beach, amongst nature & has good facilities (bathrooms are a bit dated but well functioning & clean). My recommendation is keep food/rubbish locked away as kangaroos will get it. Each time we have lost a loaf of bread. Have a meal upstairs of the camp kitchen, great views!

I was in two minds about writing this review as I don't want to share this place. My family and I have been coming here for 18 years and we love it. As soon as I drive up to the reception I feel all my stress disappear. The location is great with it only being 6klms from Merimbula that has a Woollies and everything else you could need. The park is well maintained, the staff friendly and although the amenities are a bit dated, this is the only park I have been to that has heated tiles on the floor of the showers. My children aged 26, 24 and 21 still enjoy coming here and my 26 year old daughter has brought her daughter there as well. Third generation of campers at Pambula Beach. We have stayed in a lot of other caravan parks recently on a trip down the coast and when we got to Pambula we looked at each other and said 'why did we bother, we should have just come straight here'.

I noticed that one of the other reviewers compalined about being told to be quiet. The security guard that is employed during peak seasons has a job to do and it is his job to keep all the campsites quiet. We have been told several times to keep the noise down which we thought was fair enough. He is there to ensure confort for all, not just us.

We stayed in a bush villa which was private and felt isolated despite being in a massive park. The layout of the cabins is really good. Ours was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a 4 night stay. The facilities were great, lots of things for the kids. Unfortunately there are no organised activities in weekends, but with absolute beach front that hardly mattered! The only complaint I would have is that the playground an jumping pillow weren't available until almost 9am. Kids get up earlier than that!

I think the facilities would be too crowded if the park were full, but it was perfect when we were there and there were more facilities under construction.

Stayed: October 2013

Thanks for your review! The new facilities you noticed being constructed is our brand new Water Park - the Sapphire Soaker! It'll be open from December 12th. Hopefully we will see you in the park again when you can enjoy the facilities to the fullest.

We stayed for 8 nights in our Van on an Ensuite site, double slab, covers both the van and the annex, the Ensuite is a good size, but also the Ensuite has a "storage room" which allows all miscellaneous items like chairs, BBQ, etc to be locked away. All the facilities are very clean and tidy. The Broken Oar Cafe/Bar/Shop is on the corner of the park and has everything you need for your stay. The swimming pools are excellent, one is heated, work is also underway on a Waterpark for the kids which we be complete by Xmas. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Any of the Ensuite Van sites are good
