Located on the banks of the magnificent Macleay River, Stuarts Point Holiday Park is a serene hideaway nestled between vast golden beaches, forests and rich farming land. So, whether you’re seeking
adventure, a place to keep the family entertained, or simply a relaxed coastal getaway, Stuarts Point Holiday Park has something for everyone. There’s a playground for the kids, or rake a short stroll over the footbridge and you’ll find 9km of beach before you where kids and adults, alike, can pass the days kayaking and paddle boarding, surfing the open beach breaks, sailing jet skiing and boating. Unwind in the evening by taking a stroll along the waterfront and enjoy a family BBQ at the holiday park grounds as the sun goes down.
Choose from multiple accommodation options including a more luxurious stay at the Riverfront Bungalow or Ensuite Cabin only a short distance to the beach. Access friendly bungalows are also available, and sleep up to seven. For those seeking a more budget friendly option, both powered and unpowered sites are available with plenty of space for the family to enjoy comfortably. Four legged friends are also welcome on all powered and unpowered sites outside of ‘high’ season dates with a maximum of 1 small dog per site.
If you’re feeling adventurous, why not explore the area by foot? There’s an abundance of nature walks, including the quaint timber footbridge, which is a feature of Stuarts Point and allows you to cross the river, walk through the sand dunes and reach the long stretch of golden beach. For a longer walk, meander for an hour or so through mangroves, paperbarks, banksias and eucalyptus to Grassy Head. Or, take the one-hour beach walk from Stuarts Point Beach over Grassy Head to Grassy Head Beach.
Cool off with a dip in the ocean or for a swim at the Upper Macleay River, which has a protected swimming environment in the river shallows, perfect for the family and children. For those who wish to try their hand at water sports, there are numerous options available for everyone. Kayaking, paddle boarding, boating and fishing are all available to learn. For the older ones, or more daring, jet skiing and sailing is sure to brighten your day. Finish your day at the park grounds with a family BBQ under a shaded area or take advantage of the camp kitchens.
