Agnes Water Beach Holiday Park
Camping in Agnes Water
For the second year in a row, our family set off for what is becoming our annual pilgrimage to the Agnes Water Beach Holiday Park for a week’s holiday. We live near Bundaberg, so we are lucky that the trip only takes us an hour, but if you were travelling from Brisbane it would take about five and half hours driving time.
The campgrounds are relatively easy to find—once you get to Agnes Water, the grounds are located right on the surf beach front.
If you are after a holiday full of retail therapy and activities such as movies and theme parks, then Agnes Water is definitely not the place for you. It is, however, great if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle to spend some great family time at the beach.
Whilst not filled with children’s activities, the park always seems very child friendly and kids are able to roam around from camp to camp fairly safely. We could easily keep an eye on them moving to friend’s camp sites from our own tent area. There is also a grassed area at the front of the park that is suitable for picnics and family cricket games, which many people took advantage of.
We love that the Agnes Water Beach Holiday Park is located right on the beach front with easy walking access to a patrolled surf beach.
Facilities at Agnes Water Beach Holiday Park
- The caravan park caters for all types of campers with –
- Powered and unpowered camp sites for tents, camper trailers/vans and caravans
- Safari tent chalets
- New apartments and studios which have absolute beach frontage (I must admit, as a ‘camper’, we found it disappointing that the newly completed apartments have been built at the front of the camp ground and have taken away the spectacular ocean view that we did enjoy there last year.)
- The amenities block is a little dated, but it was always clean, has plenty of showers and toilets available and never has a shortage of hot water!
- Camp kitchen
- Beach front café
- The park does welcome pets on van sites during the off-peak periods of the year.
- There are cafés and some shops within easy walking distance from the park.
Activities to enjoy at Agnes Water Beach Holiday Park
- Right in the immediate proximity of the park, we enjoyed the surf beach (with an area for surfing), playground and bushwalks to the lookouts in the area. If the tides are low, there is an area around the corner from the beach that has rock pools for young children to paddle in and investigate sea life.
- Within short driving distance is the close township of 1770, which offers calm swimming areas, paddle boarding, kayaking and walking tracks that include historic sites indicating Captain Cook’s historic landing in the area.
- 1770 is also the departure point for day trips on the LARC (an amphibious vehicle) to Bustard Heads Lighthouse and Lady Musgrave Island.
How to make the most of your stay at Agnes Water Beach Holiday Park
- We recommend taking your own food supplies, as grocery items can be quite expensive in the local township.
- We can recommend the local Thai and ‘Kahunas’ restaurants.
Agnes Water Beach Holiday Park is located on Jeffery Court in Agnes Water.
