Most Australians have fond memories of long summer beach holidays spent in caravans and tents near the coast, or amidst nature. It was a time before technology dominated our entertainment, and we spent hours outdoors with family and friends. These days, it’s challenging to organise a break where everyone can have fun and reconnect with each other. But there are ways to recapture that holiday magic, such as Byron Holiday Park.
Remember holidaying with your parents? The car jam packed, tents and towels in the back. Remember running free and enjoying the fresh sea breeze? The simplicity of sun, surf and sand. These are the times that will stay with you forever. As an experienced and family-owned set up, Byron Holiday Park know exactly how to make sure your own family have a gorgeous, sun-soaked holiday to remember- just like the ones you remember.
There’s a sprawling 28 acres of natural parklands to roam, where kids and adults alike can have the space to wander, while the landscape is studded with 70 comfortable cabins and 155 picture-perfect campsites for bunking down together and talking into the evening over dinner (and wine for the grown ups!).
The Park has recently been refurbished and its gorgeous facilities now include:
- New gardens
- Group-sized villas
- Bike hire
- Laundry facilities
- A barista-led cafe
- Alchemy Wellness centre
- Recreational room
- Swimming pool
It’s a holiday destination that has the whole family in mind with its set up. The Park runs kid-friendly activities and competitions during holiday periods that allows children burn off excess energy, while parents are left to enjoy the tranquil surrounds and just chill out or leave city stress well behind with a glorious an on-site massage. For a little more action, take a day trip to beloved Byron Bay itself. The Park is also just a few minutes’ drive away from Byron Bay’s famed attractions, which include the Broken Head Nature Reserve, Crystal Castle and Shambhala Gardens and the Byron Equestrian Centre.
When it comes to dining, visitors can make use of the Park’s communal camp kitchens, fridges and barbeque areas to knock up a slap-dash Australian dinner of snags with sauce or go gourmet with some fresh seafood like garlic prawns chargrilled on the barbie. There’s also delicious meals on offer from Spoke, like slow cooked pulled beef tacos, dairy-free spelt muffins, plus coffee throughout the day. Byron is also so close so there’s plenty of wonderful bakeries, breweries, cafes and restaurants to explore.
Byron Holiday Park has 12 different cabin styles available to suit any budget. Accommodation options range from luxury 4-star villas and cabins, to powered and unpowered camping sites with private bathrooms. Each site is spaced generously, so you won’t feel overcrowded, while still close enough so that you can have a conversation with your neighbour holiday makers, if you want to.
As Byron Bay is one of Australia’s favourite destinations,, it’s no wonder part-owner and architect Lisa White is proud of the chance the park offers families to get up close and personal with nature without the huge price tag.
And now the park has been expertly updated to offer the best in facilities combined set in an unbeatably beautiful bush landscape, Lisa says it’s an unmissable trip.
“The focus in renovating the Park has been to offer a high-value holiday choice for families,” she and co-owner co-owner Michelle Bourke tell North Shore Mums.
“Guests can enjoy a family friendly and authentic back-to-nature experience where they can watch whales at the beach, see koalas in the trees, and even spot an echidna scurrying by– all in a single day.”
A family holiday shouldn’t just be a time to get away from home and work demands. It’s an occasion where wonderful memories are made, and a place where your children will want to return with their families.
