We had a beautiful week away here with the family. There is so much for the kids to do, the children's water park was better then one we paid to visit close by. Our children loved the go karts, and the local wildlife. I thought it was a bit odd that there was a sign in every cabin stating that...

It smelt like rotting meat, there was mould and dirt everywhere in the wet areas. Simple things like toilet roll...

We stayed in a Deluxe cabin, very nicely appointed and in a quiet location. Park facilities were great for the kids and it was nice and close to the beach. Staff very friendly. Highly recommend this park!

We absolutely loved the park, our grandkids 5 and 7 had an absolute ball, everything they wanted was in a few meters of our cabin, the cabin was very clean and well set out with everything you needed , definitely will be coming back even without the grandkids :)

20 km north of Coffs Harbour and easy to miss is the small community of Emerald Beach. The Emerald Beach Discovery Caravan park is real gem, nestled in the forest right on the beach. The park caters for families with playrooms, water play area, movie room and games room. Also a heated pool for "big kids". The beach is in...

Cabins are neat and clean but very small if more than two people. The park is well appointed for kids with pools, water park and plenty of riding tracks. Didn't use the camp site but they were full which is a good sign. Other options in nearby Coffs and Woolgoogla but emerald beach does the job.
