AN AQUATIC PLAYGROUND FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES

As the place where Cudgera Creek winds around to meet the Pacific Ocean, Hastings Point is almost entirely surrounded by water. As such, holiday activities here revolve around the estuary and ocean.

From the sandy beaches lining the creek bank, children can swim safely in the calm clear water. Anglers can alternate between beach and river fishing. Mangrove wetlands deliver rewards to the crab pots. Paddle a kayak, canoe for miles and explore the tidal rockpools.

Hastings Point is a sight of great importance for the marine environment, long sandy beaches and the exposed headland is a treasure for anyone interested in marine life. The diversity of tropical species observed here at various times are amazing. Some tropical species occurring intertidally here have yet to be found anywhere else on the NSW coastline.

When you add in the network of walkways and cycle paths, you have all the ingredients for the ultimate family/beach/fishing/nature-based holiday.

Hastings Point is a popular camping and caravanning spot and boats a deluxe five-star rated holiday park – BIG4 North Star – which, in 2011, won the Tourism Award for Best Caravan and Tourism Park in NSW. In addition to a day spa, the resort is home to a marine environment centre with an incredible array of fascinating exhibits. You can also pitch a tent at the Hastings Point Holiday Park or opt for the more luxurious Safari Ten (with private ensuite) option. The Holiday Park has a unique twin water location, overlooking a long sandy beach as well as Cudgera Creek, which makes for a great combination for year-round swimming and surfing as well as fishing.
