Where do we start
If you are looking for the best family holiday EVER, look no further than BIG4 Sunshine The kids will never want to leave the park and happy kids = happy parents They will be on the go all day - starting at the undercover jumping pillow & playground and next to beat dad at Sharkeys Putt Putt, then get your cozzies on for Pirate & Mermaid fun on The Golden Rose at Shipwreck Island Water Park & Skull Cave. If you can drag them away from "just 1 more tipping bucket & slide mum", long enough to have a bite to eat cooked on our free BBQs in the camp kitchen, they can then hire go-karts to race around the park or canoes to explore the large Saltwatwer Lagoon at the back of the park.
Enjoy the fact that we are surrounded by National Park so you have the feel of staying in nature, but with friendly staff and all the clean & well maintained facilities that you would expect from a resort to ensure your stay with us is five star.
Our on-site restaurant, The Full Circle Eatery, will keep you coming back for more; fantastic coffee & home baked delights, freshly caught local seafood, and consistently "the best burger you have ever eaten" Kids meals, take-away options & open for breakfast, lunch all week, with dinner Thursday to Saturday nights.
