Well maintained grounds overlooking the water and the amenities are very clean & tidy. Cycle/footpath extends for kilometres in both directions and will take you the very short distance into the CBD where there are plenty of shops, bars and cafes. There is also a pub and cafe right outside the park. We really enjoyed cycling along the river path...

We found this to be a very nice holiday park but was a shame it came with grumpy managers. The caravan sites mostly had all required services including power, water and grey water drainage. Unfortunately the site we had only had power.

A beautiful park with cabins and sites right on the water. Suprisingly quiet compared to others we stayed at during the holiday period. Pub with good meals is handy. Fishing was good, but apparently gets better from late October.

Stayed five weeknights in a motorhome. Had our dog with us. We were near the exit and opposite the hotel. The park was clean and tidy and there is a walkway out to the heads and beaches to access. Very relaxing, plenty to see and do. Had a great meal at the hotel. No complaints about the park, except if...

We had 2 nights in a basic cabin. It was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Staff very hospitable. The location is excellent, right next to the water. So whatever your interest, swimming, fishing or walking this is a great place to stay.

Clean Park, perfect location for fishing. Just make sure you don't book along the back wall as it backs on to a pub and can get noisy. Lovely staff and pet friendly. The only place I stay when in Ballina... Cabins are spacious and very clean!

Friendly staff, great views if you book a waterfront site at extra cost. Amenities very, very old but seemed clean enough. Shower head in first shower kept falling down so had to move to another cubical. Lots of nice grassed areas if you bring pets. About 2.5km from shops although there is a pub next door. Wifi did not work...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Where the river meets the ocean - where the mighty Richmond River drains into the magnificent Shaw’s Bay, you’ll find the Shaw’s Bay Holiday Park. Its spectacular location means you have the best of both aquatic worlds, the calm protected waters of Shaw’s Bay and the excitement of renowned surf beaches. Swimming, surfing, windsurfing, boating, sailing, fishing – you name it, at Shaw’s Bay you can do it. This park is handy to the centre of Ballina with its cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. And the family-friendly Shaw’s Bay Hotel is just a shout away. If the kids ever get tired of the water, the park is next to a parkland that boasts BBQs and children's swings: the ideal place for a family picnic. The park is set on the side of a hill so every level of the park has its own unique views. ... more   less
