Every Wednesday morning through winter we put on a free morning tea for guests.
This gives us a great chance to get some useful feedback from guests. But it also gives you a chance to meet other guests, share info with them about places you’ve been and gain insider knowledge from them about places you might want to go next.
Lifelong friends have been made at morning tea’s like these.
This is one of the real attractions of staying with us during the winter months.
You’re welcome to have your own personal campfire on your site or close to your cabin. There aren’t many holiday parks that allow this, but because of the massive amounts of space we have here it’s something we’re happily able to allow in our park.
There’s nothing better when you’re camping then ending the day as a family around your own camp fire, listening to your kids tell you (slightly exaggerated) stories about their adventures that day.
We have fire drums which are free to use for your entire stay. They get delivered straight to your site or cabin by one of our friendly grounds staff. We also have wood available for purchase which again will be dropped at your doorstep.
You’re also welcome to bring your own campfire setup as long as it has legs or some sort of stand that will keep it up off the ground so we’re not left with burned out grass patches across the park.
When it comes to unbiased travel reviews. TripAdvisor is definitely the king.
And we are consistently rated as the number #1 holiday park in the area, with an average rating of just over 4.5/5 from around 200 individual reviews.
You don’t have to believe us when we tell you we’re the best in the area, but you should definitely pay attention to what people say on TripAdvisor.
The weather tends to be really good here during the cooler months of the year.
We get less rain than at any other time, the daytime temperature gets up to around 20 degrees on average but the nights generally don’t get below 10 degrees.
So if you’re from somewhere inland where you deal with nights that are at or below zero, and days that barely make it into double figures, then Yamba in the winter will seem like the tropics for you.
And the stars at night with the clear skies are just amazing.
Our park is lucky enough to have direct access to the Clarence River. Fishing and boating are good year round on the Clarence.
But during the cooler months of the year the river is not as busy which makes it easier for you to find a good spot to relax and catch some fish.
And the great thing about this time of year for kayakers is that you don’t get the winds picking up in the afternoon anywhere near as much as you do when it’s warmer.
So the river is much flatter and you’re not fighting against 25 knot winds which makes your paddling time so much more enjoyable.
Whether you have kids under school age and can stay here mid week, or you can only get across for a weekend, your kids will have a ball either way.
Even though this tends to be a quieter time in the park there are still plenty of things for your kids to do.
We have one of the biggest jumping pillows you’ll find anywhere, your kids can hire pedal karts to cruise around the park, we have an outdoor movie every Saturday night (weather permitting), you can bring the bikes for the kids so they can use our pump track and the kayaks are always free for you to hire.
One of the most common things we hear parents say is…
“I just feel so comfortable letting the kids go and play without worrying about where they are. I actually get the chance to relax myself and enjoy my holiday rather than constantly chasing kids around.”
After just a couple of days here you’ll leave rejuvenated and refreshed…not stressed and in need of another trip away to unwind from the ‘holiday’ you just just had.
One of the great things about having so much space is that we can afford to be generous when it comes to the sizes of our camp sites.
You won’t be forced to camp on top of your neighbour here!
All of our camp sites are bigger than average, with some being almost over the top huge.
This generally means you can go big on your camp setup, with plenty of space for annexes, awnings, extra tents or gazebos.
The large camp sites are one of the key reasons so many of our holiday guests come back year after year. They learn how to make best use of the massive amount of space allocated to their site.
If you’re not a camper that’s OK, we’ve got some great family cabins available which you’ll absolutely love. Our Figtree cabins are not your typical family cabin – it feels more like you’re staying at a luxury resort.
The cabins are completely self contained and we’ve even had people ask about the designer with the idea of putting one on their farm as a guest house.
One of the most popular features is your own private BBQ so you can cook and eat as a family out on the large front deck of your cabin.
And most importantly for the cooler months, all of the cabins have reverse cycle air conditioning. So when the temperature drops at night you’ll be able to move from your campfire inside to your cozy living room.
