I can't personally recommend any but I found this on the net: http://www.beachfronttouristparks.com.au/

I have friends who have stayed at this one and were very happy with it: http://www.palmsherveybay.com.au/

You'll find a lot of southerners up there at that time trying to escape the southern winter.

I'd expect that you might have to book in early at the popular CPs to secure a spot.

I stayed at Pialba last june july with my 3 kids and had a great time. Any of the beachfront parks are good to stay in, the facilities are old but very clean. You will find that the majority of the people in the park are either retired couples staying there for the winter or back packers there for a night or two. Make sure you take bikes for the kids they can ride in the caravan park but there are heaps of bike tracks. The Urangan pier at the southern end is great for fishing on the change of tide.

Dicko,
One thing I should mention is at Pialba they were building a water park next door. I think it is just a large heated pool but not sure. It might be worth checking with the guys that run the camp ground what time it opens and if there is much noise. The guys that run the park are very helpful.

I think you will be right in the middle of whale watch season - that is a must do for sure. We are booked into Fraser Lodge for Xmas, its about 200m walk from the beach at Torquay. We take a boat with us and love getting out fishing skiing and just cruising around the bay.
If you dont have a boat and want to get out for a fish check out one of the charters down at the Urangan boat harbour.

Enjoy your trip its a magic place
