“Just love Brunswick Heads”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

Spent three nights here as part of our tour down the coast. The park is the only park in Brunswick that takes dogs. It is nicely situated right beside the Brunswick River which is perfect for setting up camp and throwing a line in. The facilities are clean and there is a mix of old and new amenities. The park is well maintained and the owners keep a close eye on the activities of their guests (we were told four times about moving our car away from the adjacent vacant sites - which we were happy to do - we were just a bit slow to do it). There is a bit of noise from the highway but it is not unbearable. Overall, it's a nice spot and we'll return.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with family

For anyone who is planning on staying here for a good night's sleep, take your ear-plugs and take note that the M1 Freeway runs parallel to this caravan park. We rented one of the cabins at a cost of $155 pn for a sleepless night of road trains thundering past right beside the reserve all day and all night. You wont hear any sounds of nature or serenity here, in fact conversation was sometimes hard! There are cheaper and quieter options. Also the cabin had an overpowering smell of cleaning product that was extremely unpleasant.

My family and I have been staying at this wonderful Park for the past 6 years, We return every Easter as well as several times during the year.
I would highly recommend this park to any family , its dog friendly, kid friendly has wonderful Clean toilet blocks the and BBQ's are clean .
The park is spotlessly clean and the On site Managers are the friendliest I ever come across Stacy and Matt will go out of their way to help you and make you feel welcome.
Quiet and relaxing right on the Brunswick river ,short stroll into town
Pull up a chair sit by the river Fish to your hearts content or just relax This is the place to be!

Booked a powered grass site, site was quite large enabling easy vehicle parking too.
Staff very friendly and helpfull, on checking in I was advised by the guy on the desk that the amenities near us were quite old and he advised me to head over to the brand new ones, I visited the old ones first and to be honest didnt see any problem with them and continued to use these during the stay. The old amenities were very clean with plenty of hot water. I only saw the new ones when I went to do the van toilet run.
Its nice to find a park that allows bikes and scooters.
The manager dropped in for a chat while doing his rounds, we found him very friendly and helpfull.

We stayed on a powered site,(no slab), and as it had rained recently alot of the sites were soggy, but the caravan park staff advised us to the best site and it was perfect. We didn't have a view of the river, (you had to book well ahead for one of those), but the river was close to walk to and there were tables and seats so you could enjoy the view. Walking distance to town via a walking track. Dog friendly park. A bit of traffic noise from the highway. Over all we enjoyed our week spent there....A must have is 'fish n chips' at the co-op ..... best food and value for money.

For the last 4 years we have been staying at Ferry Reserve for Xmas and Easter.
Matt and Stacey and staff have gone out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable.
We love our site. Matt comes to help position our huge van for us.
Nothing is to much trouble.
I can honestly say this park and manager ensures our holiday is relaxing at all times. And I love the Coffee Machine.

We were initially concerned about staying here having perused prior reviews. Yes, the manager is a gruff looking bloke, but we have nothing but praise for all of the staff. We certainly didn't encounter any of the outbursts as have others. Travelling with 2 dogs as we are, it was also a concern that this would cause us issues with the staff, but no, it didn't. Nor did it seem, were any of the other dogs staying at the park any problem. We were give a choice of concrete slab or grass site and chose the grass This was our only negative, as the area beneath our awning was worn down to gravel rather than the promised grass. The pups were less impressed with this arrangement than ourselves. As for the facilities, we found them to be all first class. There are 2 amenities blocks, although the one further from the river appears newer and was our choice for ablutions. The laundry has only two washers and two dryers, but there was no congestion in there during our stay. Heaps of line space is directly outside the laundry area. Being right on the river, there is a boat ramp within the park (for very small boats only), as well as the chance to go fishing or just ambling along the banks. A beach area was advertised, but this is a tiny little space that is underwater at high tide, and can't really be called a beach. Comments can not be provided for the onsite cabins, as we didn't avail ourselves of them. We would stay here again if in the area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
With the beautiful Brunswick River at its doorstep and magnificent Mt Chincogan as its backdrop, Ferry Reserve Holiday Park makes the most of its dramatic setting. Named after its location, the site of the first ferry to cross the river, this park is a safe and accessible place for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. Because it has its own boat ramp - the only park in this area to do so - it is the obvious choice for the committed fisherman or boater. Brunswick Heads with its patrolled surf beach and vibrant cafes is only a three minute drive away. Or, for a safe and healthy family outing, there is a dedicated path/cycleway to town that does not cross any major roads. ... more   less
