North Star Holiday Resort – A place for family adventure!
The pristine beaches of Hastings Point in northern New South Wales are undoubtedly one of the best locations for families seeking a quiet seaside holiday, with both open beaches and calm water inlets that are perfect for surfing, swimming, kayaking and fishing.
Hastings Point is also the home of the North Star Holiday Resort, an amazing family holiday location with accommodation options to suit all budgets, awesome facilities including a kids’ club and water park, as well as a day spa and heated lap pool for the adults.
Kids’ paradise at North Star, Hastings Point
Once you’ve arrived and parked your car, you won’t be needing it again as there is so much to do at North Star Holiday Resort. Kids are invited to bring their bikes or scooters and make their way around the resort. The first stop is the outdoor playground which is suitable for a wide range of ages.
Right next door is Neptune’s Castle – a fully supervised kids’ club that runs on weekends and school holidays. It is like a big indoor play centre, with an exciting program of events and activities, offering everything from craft days and disco evenings.
On the other side of the playground is a games room with arcade games, a pool table, air hockey, pinball machines and a small, gated play area for toddlers.
The icing on the cake is the amazing water park, Sammy’s Adventure Lagoon, which boasts heated pools, water slides, a tipping bucket and water fountains that provide hours of water play fun. Alongside the waterpark, and newly opened in September 2018, you will find the most amazing ‘super slides’ – two 8.2m high tubular water slides that add water-fuelled fun at every twist and turn as they spiral their way more than 60m down to poolside landing platforms below!
Unique to the North Star Holiday Resort is the Marine Discovery Centre, which has recently had a million-dollar makeover and contains a large range of fascinating marine specimens on display. The centre also features a state-of-the-art learning facility that is open to both the public and resort guests on Saturdays and during each school holiday period. Kids will be amazed at the vast shell collection and hands-on exhibits.
And if you stay long enough to exhaust all of these activities, there is also a giant sandpit located just across the road at the beautiful Hasting Point beach, via a short and beautiful bushwalk.
Adults’ heaven at North Star, Hastings Point
Once the kids are happily playing at the kids’ club, it’s time to book yourself in for a massage or beauty treatment at the onsite day spa. There’s also the adults only heated lap pool if you feel like a swim, or you can enjoy a quiet drink and perhaps a good book at your campsite, cabin or villa.
If you feel like a break from cooking, the onsite licensed cafe – Ripples – offers a daily buffet breakfast, all-day coffee and cake, and a la carte lunches and dinners. There is a children’s menu and the food is of high quality.
Poolside dining is also on offer, with six gorgeous poolside cabanas to chill out in. Order yourself a refreshing smoothie or tasty snack, lie back and enjoy the relaxation.
If you do choose to cook, there is a well-appointed camp kitchen as well as kitchen facilities within the cabin and villa accommodations.
