If you're after a resort style holiday without the price tag, this is the place for you. By day, a quiet bush setting, where you can play a round of golf while the kids amuse themselves on the jumping pillow and pool slide. By night, an entertainment hub with karaoke, discos and trivia nights. As a family, bond over a game of tennis on the courts, an archery competition at the range or a virtual match on the Wii. If that's all too much, you can while away the hours – or even days – poolside. Cocktails optional.
Wake up under the gentle waving fronds of subtropical palms in the park’s wide selection of accommodation sites. While they might range from basic to luxe, all are quiet, relaxing, easy to access and well spaced for privacy. Choose from unpowered and powered ensuite sites, glamping safari tents or spacious villas that can comfortably sleep up to eight. The Lagoon Spa Villas are particularly impressive: vaulted ceilings with exposed beams add an extra touch of luxury, while the waterfront balcony is the perfect place for sundowners in the evening.
If you've had your fill of fishing – try the rocky shoal of Corindi Head; bream, whiting, mulloway and snapper can be caught here – and explored all the fantastic picnic areas (Woolgoolga Creek is particularly beautiful, with superb waterfall views at the end of the Falls walking track), head south 30km or so to Coffs Harbour for a wildlife experience of a different kind. Families with little ones will love the Butterfly House and maze, while bigger kids (and the young at heart) will be blown away by the interactive dolphin and seal shows at Dolphin Marine Magic. Wet your whistle at Element Bar Coffs Harbour with daily specials, generous happy hours and cracking live music line ups. For a fine dining experience, Latitude 30 delivers in spades – order a seafood platter, sit on the deck and watch the dolphins frolic in the ocean.
