The Big 4 Emu Beach Holiday Park is a great family orientated park, but there are some nice quiet spots around the park where you can escape from the sound of kids on holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I have grandkids myself and I love spending time with them, but sometimes you just want a little peace and quiet, and luckily we nabbed ourselves one of those quieter areas of the park. In fact we were lucky enough to get an ensuite site so we didn’t even have to share bathroom facilities ( which is a luxury when travelling). Wi-FI is complimentary, although during our stay it was a bit patchy and had a habit of dropping out regularly. Pets are welcome in your own accommodation at the manager’s discretion, but not in the peak holiday periods.
If camping’s not your thing then the park has cabins and chalets available, from studio apartments for couples, to 3 bedroom villas big enough to sleep up to 8 people; so maybe you can tag along with the grandkids for a few days or get together with a group of friends for a weekend away.
The park itself is very well set out and is kept immaculately clean and tidy. There are 2 amenity and laundry blocks, a campers kitchen with BBQ, a large undercover BBQ area with lots of seating and 3 BBQs, making it a great meeting place if you are with a group; in addition, there are extra BBQs dotted around the park.
If you do come with children, there are fabulous facilities to keep them occupied; there is of course the jumping pillow, and a large enclosed playground, there is also mini-golf and a large recreation room with pool table, table tennis, a TV and a large screen and projector for showing movies in the school holidays. All of the children’s activity areas are grouped together, making it easy for parents to keep an eye on them and it also means that for us grumpy oldies, we can request an area away from the playground.
From the park you can take one of two access paths that lead you to Emu Point beach or to the bike path that runs alongside the shoreline. Because the park backs on to the ocean, the sound of the sea is a constant in the background, and in the evening, if you are lucky enough to have a partner that doesn’t snore ( or who isn’t snoring yet) you can fall asleep to the calming sounds of the waves crashing on the shore.
