The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, nothing was an issue and they were only too happy to do the wee extra things that made our stay more enjoyable.
BIG4 Sunshine at South West Rocks is the best of both worlds – a holiday resort for everyone. Its facilities are among the best in New South Wales for families, with a lagoon-style pool and fantastic kids’ play area, Shipwreck Island Water Park which boasts 4 slides, a tipping bucket and a crying waterfall skull cave. Designed to help families get back in touch, the year-round activities and excellent facilities are intended to help you disconnect from technology.
For a more natural, secluded getaway, its newest luxury Ngurra Lodges offer spacious and well-appointed comfort, blending seamlessly into the National Park beyond. Here, you can enjoy the relaxed luxury of upscale accommodation without sacrificing the family-friendly activities and facilities like tennis, canoe hire and nearby beaches.
BIG4 Sunshine's accommodation ranges from two-storey luxury lodges to glamping tents. The luxury range can comfortably sleep up to seven people in two- or three-bedroom villas, with king beds, smart TVs and air conditioning, one or two bathrooms and the full range of kitchen facilities.
The Full Circle Eatery serves delicious breakfasts, fabulous lunches, famous burgers and delectable homemade cakes with what has been called the best coffee in Arakoon. Fresh local fish is a specialty, along with house-made cheeses and a menu that changes with the seasons.
