        Great spot. Safari tent was fun but minimal park facilities for kids. A jumping pillow or water feature would help considering the price and amount of competition in the area.

        All facilities not for use”

        We visited Shoal Bay holiday park for a reunion after staying at the park as a "family" for many (30+) years. We requested to use the recreation room as the weather was quite cold, only to be told it was for "private marketing purposes only". We were told by staff that if we wished to hire the room we needed to pre-book and pay a non-refundable $200 fee on top of our already expensive rates for the off-peak season. Maybe Shoal Bay holiday park should not advertise their recreation room as a park "facility", as it is clearly not for guests use.
