My Husband and I have traveled extensively within Australia and this trip has been from the coast of Western Australia to Byron Bay in New South Wales and home again mostly following the coast. We loved the Tathra Beachside Caravan Park. We decided to treat ourselves to an ensuite site on the beach. Couldn't have been happier! I checked out...

Stayed for a week on a beachside ensuite site. Positives; site is exceptionally close to beach access, well levelled (love the synthetic grass), quiet and peaceful. The pool and water park are excellent, as is the jumping pillow and fire pit/camp kitchen. Proximity to patrolled beach (in April school holidays) is good. Negatives; ensuite was very old, tired and in...

We stayed overnight on a powered site only a few metres from the beach. Great position with the sound of the waves overnight. Amenities block was close by and was clean, in a well maintained state and with nice hot showers. Reception was very friendly and informative on the park facilities and provided an information package on the Tathra area.

WoW, what can we say. Such an amazing place to stay. Dog friendly. Wonderfully clean and so well looked after. Fantastic water park, pool and amenities. So many choices of accommodation from sites all the way to 3 bedroom beach houses. We had the dog friendly spa cabin which included a small yard area. Although not fenced enough for our...

Extremely small sites for vans and very overpriced . No security over Easter break so therefore if there was any noise or problems you just had to cope yourselves. The caravan park is big on sending text messages to inform you bout what's happening and also encouraging upgrades at a high price.We were annoyed at the "upsell"attitude of the park.We...

Great family feel - pet friendly - right on a dog beach - water park, playground, frogs & birds for the kids - great kitchen. Good family feel. All awesome - except for x3 days of cold showers at $60+ per night grass powered site. Fundamental you want hot or at least a warm shower. Told the staff "yeah I...

We stayed over the Easter break & had a great stay. The facilities are excellent for both young children (my accident prone 2yo happily played on the playground, jumping pillow & waterpark for hours without incident - meant we could relax!) and the older kids were equally entertained with the facilities & daily activities on offer - a marine visit...

We stayed here over the Easter long weekend and it was fantastic. The facilities within the park were of a high standard and catered to our child as well. There were activities planned such as gig night and craft activities for the kids. Although it was crowded but it didn't feel that way as the layout was very spacious. The...
