The ocean's roar and salt mist are wonderful to put you into a holiday mood. Most tent sites back onto the sand dune. They are long, grassy, open and well drained. The park is mostly residential and rental cabins so it doesn't feel crowded at peak times. The large amenities block was a long way from the site and is...

Thanks for your review. Thanks for your feedback concerning our facilities and our site. There are many beautiful beaches within a short driving distance, and Fairy Meadow Surf beach is 600m to our south and Towradgi Surf beach and ocean pool is 600m to our north. Thanks, I hope you can visit again.

we stayed here on a hot day in a small unit with no aircon. We only stayed a night as we were passing through but would not have enjoyed it if it was longer as we didn't book an air conditioned unit. The facilities on site were good although we didn't get around to using the pool.

Thank you for your review. We have lots of cabins that have air conditioning and we have other cabins with ceiling fans but no air-conditioning at a lower rate. Sorry if you had preferred air conditioning, if no air-con cabins were available on the day that you were here. Hoping you can stay again. All the best.

I stayed here for 6 weeks, with work, in the budget units, friendly staff, the accomodation was nice and clean, considering how large the park is and how many units there are it was really quiet. I had a fire alarm with a dead battery and they fixed it straight away. The indoor heated pool was awesome, shame they closed...

Thanks for your review. I'll pass on your positive comments concerning clean rooms to our housekeeping staff. They take pride in their work and will love your recognition. Remember that even when the pool is being used for swimming lessons, you can still use the spas and steam room. Maybe an option after a long work day. Hoping that you...

My daughter and I spent 2 nights here. I found the rooms clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. My daughter loved our evening spa and walks along the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Lovely staff and great amenities.

Nice clean and well kept park, stayed in a one bedroom cabin and it was very well appointed with large beds and all the facilities that one would expect. The down side was that there is 3 cabins in a row and the noise dose travel through the floor and walls. WIFI connection was pretty ordinary as it kept disconnecting...

Park is well kept. Our cabin was OK. Fairly clean. We had an OK night sleep on Thursday, but Friday & Saturday was a different story when there were people staying in the cabins around us.

Ouch! That's not good. Sorry that you experienced such a disturbance. We have a 10pm noise curfew and display the curfew on all advertising of cabins and it is a requirement that all guests confirm in writing that they will abide by the curfew when they check in. So something has gone amiss. We have a security service patrolling the...

We're Sydneysiders and have discovered "The Gong" as a great weekend getaway that's a hit with our four year old daughter. The rooms are very tidy and have everything we needed.

The park is well-maintained and the facilities excellent. However, we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and all of the rubbish bins in the caravan area adjacent to the beach were full and overflowing as they were when we left on the Monday. Also, the park does not have a dump point for black water. When we enquired, we were told...
