The property is great & the glamping tent was awesome & clean but was disappointed that there was no tea/coffee in the rooms. The cafe wasnt functioning so we couldnt get coffee or anything to eat either & there is no where else you can get anything from unless you go over the ferry to the main town which takes about 30 mins atleast!

winter trip
The cleanliness was great. Our issues were that it was a freezing night and early morning and the aircon was not reverse cycle. We ended up putting on the oven/small stove to warm up the place and left early as the café didn't open until 8.30am I would be a wonderful place to stay if you were fishing and surfing.

This park is a hidden gem in Ballina. At first we were a bit put off by the location, as it turns out that South Ballina is quite far from Ballina proper. However, the ferry is very quick and practical and really makes this a great place to stay, removed from the hustle and bustle of the town but close and convenient. The staff were just outstanding and friendly and competent. Our only suggestion is that the plumbing needs a bit of work, it seems to have been corroded by using board water over the years, And also it would be great if the cafe would serve food other than pies from the warming case. We would be very happy to come stay again!
