I have spent a number of years visiting the NSW south coast and can now confidently put Durras Lake North Holiday Park at the top of my list of places to take visitors to Australia to have a great relaxed time and to see a surprising amount of native wildlife (kangaroos, parrots, lorikeets and the odd possum at night) without having to leave the site.
The owners were fantastic and provided my French-Canadian partner and I with genuinely thoughtful and attentive service, as well as local knowledge of places to go and things to do.
The website was accurate with its descriptions, and the cabin we stayed in (Pelican Cabin - 3 nights, shoulder season) was good value with a more than adequate kitchen and bathroom.
All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet, friendly and 'Aussie' holiday at the south coast, without having to worry about breaking the budget. Make sure to grab a kayak and go for a paddle while your there!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Beach, Bush, and Lake, are all just a short stroll away. The park is in sheltered bushland with the Murramarang National Park on three sides. The top of our park has nostalgic-rustic cottages (2br) and standard park cabins (1br) plus a luxury van for couples. The bushland camping ground has spacious, individually crafted sites for the biggest tents and vans; and is popular with overseas visitors looking for a real Aussie camping experience. All accommodation have a wood-fired BBQ, which doubles as an open fireplace when the lid is put up. ... Wildlife: visiting through the park are kangaroos, wallabies, possums, bandicoots, and goannas. Birds: three spectacular birds abound; green & red King Parrots, red & blue Rosellas, and multi-coloured Rainbow Lorikeets. Shore birds and majestic pelicans can be found down at the lake. Activities: birdwatching, boating, bushwalking, fishing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, sunbathing, surfing, and wading in the shallows for the little ones. ... The park has a general store with regional specialities and a cafe serving coffee from locally roasted beans. Batemans Bay is 20 minutes away for town things, including a cinema for that third rainy day. ... more less
