“A great stay in Byron Bay”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

This was our fifth stay at Clarkes Beach - after an absence of 10 years - and we weren't disappointed. In the past we had always come and set up camp with our daughters who could never get enough of Byron Bay. This trip it was just the two of us, in a smaller tent. We found many improvements had been made, and many of the sites had been reconfigured. The best thing about this park is that it's right on the beach. You've got the sound of the sea at night, and resident koalas in the trees near your tent, and those weird bush turkeys for entertainment. Some German backpackers in the adjacent tent were startled by the sound the koalas made during the night, but were reassured by the ranger who happened to be passing by. The park is quiet, well-run, and in the best location.

We stayed on an unpowered site in April 2014. Unfortunately I was not advised/warned that Bush Turkeys owned the place. I came home to my tent and realised that they had destroyed it and eaten my food inside which was well sealed. Very disappointed and can't say we'll be back any time soon :(

We have stayed here twice, once in November 2013 and once in November 2012. The location is great, right on the beach. We noticed a big decrease in the standard of our cabin between November 2012 and November 2013. The first time was fantastic, clean well maintained and everything worked perfectly. The next time everything in our cabin was tired. The doors didn't shut properly, neither did the blinds, the hot water in the sink didn't flow freely, the soap holder in the shower was too loose in the wall to hold soap, the cabin had a mouldy smell. It was OK but just not as wonderful as we had remembered from the time before when everything was perfect and clean. You are paying pretty top dollar for a cabin in a non swimming pool park and it just didn't seem worth it this time. We gave all this feedback to the staff on duty at the time but with the exception of the hot water in the sink the rest of the issues remained unsolved during our two week stay.

We stayed on a powered site with ocean glimpses. Most I would say you can hear the ocean, especially at night, great sound. The park is clean and quiet with excellent facilities. The beach platforms are fabulous spots to chat to fellow travellers or just sit overlooking the beach and read. Of course beach access is just there! Walking to town is not a problem, the lighthouse and also Wategoes is within walking distance.
Enjoy as we did ;-)

I've been here before and I'm sure to come here again. Whilst it's one of the highest priced site you'll get around Australia, the location is certainly ideal. Right on the beach, north facing and there both sunny and shaded sites: in my case a request for a sunny site was granted. The only negative here is that they don't take reservations for one night; if they did I'd come more often. Single nights are permitted but you just have to roll up and hope they have space...

We have been visiting Clarke's Beach for a number of years now. Amazing beachside location, walking distance to some of the best cafés & restaurants in NSW, great walking tracks to local landmarks. Park Facilities are some of the best we have seen especially family bathrooms & communal dining room overlooking the ocean.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights between Easter and Anzac Day. The site we had (58) was quiet and very close to the beach and amenities block (which were clean and empty around 4, but beware the pre dinner rush!). The park seemed very family friendly, loads of kids and a nice playground, but we spent most of our time on the beach, which is simply stunning. This park is in the best location, with a gorgeous wide beach just off the reef near The Pass, and a brisk 20 min walk from wategos. It's also about a 10 min walk from the centre of town, and felt very safe and secure. I just can't wait to get back there!

Want to be close to the splendor of nature but not too far from the reassuring hiss of a cappuccino machine? Then Clarkes Beach Holiday Park is your perfect holiday destination.

It is an oasis amongst the sand dunes with its modern facilities, amazing views and great atmosphere. It is also within walking distance – and if you take the beach route, what a walk that is! – to Byron Bay, and all the delights that bustling town has to offer, be they shopping, eating or entertainment. Some of Australia’s most iconic beaches: Main Beach, The Pass and Wategoes Beach are all within walking distance of the park, and all have something extraordinary to offer. For the surfer there are those world famous waves, for the family there is squeaky white sand, crystal clear water and the reassurance of patrolled areas, and not to forget the simple pleasures such as enjoying a picnic lunch on the park’s own viewing platform while watching, spellbound, as the migrating whales pass. ... more   less
