Hi There
I know it isn't hard core but having 3 little ones under 3 we are going to Happy Hallidays Holiday park in NSW at Christmas. I figure it is a good place to start :)
If anyone has stayed there and could give me any info that would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Cath

Wow 3 under 3. I would be looking for something similar, especially with things like the kidznook :idea:

Camping Kids,

HH would be a great place to take the family. We have not been for two years as it is a bit of a drive for us. Yet i will add it is well worth it.
We tented both times we visited up the back near the tennis court.
As you will know from the web site there are a number of activities.

http://www.happyhallidays.com.au/

The pool is great, jumping pillow, mini golf and tennis and don't forget the train that drives around the park. The kids love that.
Our kids were 3 and 5 years old and had a ball. Clean camp kitchen and facilities.

It is a couple of minutes drive to the beach. One visit we did not even leave the park.
Sites are varied with the larger ones around the back. We easily fitted a car, box trailer, double dome 8+8 tent and tarp on our site. Lots of nice green grass and space.

The hosts and fellow campers are friendly and we would return to visit again.

(will try to add photos later).

HH is a great place to go with little ones. We have been there every christmas hols for the past 13 years and although our kids are long grown we have made lots of friends who we meet up with every year. It is not a quiet campsite so expect lots of people - most try to be considerate of others. HH also has lots of family activities such as junior movies, kids play nook, face painting, putt putt, playground,discos etc. There is also a train which offers rides around the park a few times each day - at minimal cost. The local area has lots to see and do but be mindful if you have 3 under 5 you may be getting in your car often as it is probably just too far to walk to the beach. HH is halfway between Forster and Taree - it's about a 15 minute drive to both for any major items. There is a coles supermarket, bakery, chemist takeaway locally plus HH has a shop for milk, bread, gas, drinks etc. If your kids travel well then Timbertown, Harrington, Port Macquarie, Ellenborough Falls and national parks are under an hour's drive away. Make sure that if you have an awning that you have springs on all your ropes as it can get windy. We have helped to rescue many fly away tarps over the years. Hope you have a great time - cos I don't think it will be the last time you visit HH
