Cabins are $150 off season, but with two usable bedrooms this became reasonable as a share. Central to surf/NelsonBay and with excellent beach on doorstep. No problems with facilities - limited shade but it's plentiful next door.

Shoal Bay was extremely helpful with our stay. We arrived on a public holiday weekend and they were sold out but offered to ring around other nearby parks to find a place for us. As they were doing this someone else cancelled so we got a place. Good facilities and clean amenities

Great caravan park. Clean, staff friendly. Power sites are quite large. We stayed on one close to the amenities which was not noisy at all. Short walk to shops, pubs and clubs. Will be staying here again.
