There are roughly 2000 holiday parks across Australia and among those, those in NSW are some of the most stunning. Many of the parks not only have pools, but also waterslides. Others are just a few steps from deserted beaches. And most have common areas where you can meet others who enjoy travelling in the same way you do.
But with so many choices of holiday parks in NSW, it can be tricky to decide. So, to help you out, ahead we’re narrowing down the options, bringing you the holiday parks in the state we think are so stunning they’re in fact worth planning a whole trip around.
Massy Greene Holiday Park
Located on Brunswick River in the village of Brunswick Heads, Massy Greene Holiday Park is an ideal site for those who love water activities. Stand-up paddleboard or kayak through the river’s calm waters. Fish by boat or from the riverbanks. Or don a snorkel and see the river’s underwater life. The park is just a three-minute walk from the town centre. It’s equipped with cabins, and unpowered and powered campsites.
Forster Beach Holiday Park
Choose from cabins or powered sites at Forster Beach Holiday Park. Cabins sleep up to six people and come with a balcony or full kitchen, while the power sites comfortably fit a caravan or RV or even several tents. Spend your days here boating or kayaking around the waterways of nearby Wallis Island, dropping a fishing line at Wallis Lake or walking across a bridge to Tuncurry to see its Nine Mile Beach.
Tweed Holiday Parks Fingal Head
Tweed Holiday Parks Fingal Head is just a 10-minute drive from Tweed Heads CBD, though you may not even want to leave the holiday park to head there. Instead, you might want to do one big shop before heading the park, and then use its barbecue facilities to make your meals. The park has direct beach access, and is near some of the area’s best surf breaks.
Eden Holiday Park
Eden Holiday is just over a six-hour drive south of Sydney and roughly a 3 hour and 15-minute drive from Canberra. Here, you’ll find cabins and powered and unpowered sites, all dog-friendly for most of the year, spread across the shores of Lake Curalo. The park also offers a beachside glamping experience with canvas-ceiling cabins fitted with kitchenettes, reverse-cycling heating and cooling and even bathrooms with showers.
Merimbula Beach Holiday Resort
A two-hour drive from Canberra and 15 minutes from Batemans Bay, Merimbula Beach Holiday Resort on the NSW South Coast looks out over headland to the sea. The holiday park has cabins, villas, glamping and caravan sites, some of which are pet-friendly. The glamping tents sleep up to four people and are equipped with standalone baths on their balconies so you can soak in the views as you literally soak.
Murramarang Beachfront Holiday Resort
You’ll find Murramarang Beachfront Holiday Resort between bush and beach, just north of Batemans Bay on the NSW South Coast. The holiday park is surrounded by Murramarang National Park and has direct beach access. Choose from villas, beach houses or camping or caravan sites. Activity options nearby include surfing, fishing, and visiting attractions like Mogo Zoo and the Birdland Animal Park.
Blue Lagoon Beach Resort
For a Central Coast holiday park option, look no further than Blue Lagoon Beach Resort, the only park that’s completely beachfront. When you’re not splashing in the waves at Shelly Beach, swim in its outdoor pool or relax in its spa. The property has cabins, including some that feature ocean views, as well as caravan and camping sites.
