Read about the truly marvellous idea of a staycation here.
and Read Part 1 on our stay at Darlington Park here.
So, aside from the wonderful accommodation, the gorgeous, well maintained park and super relaxed atmosphere, I’ve saved the best until last – the facilities for families and kids is phenominal!
Now I don’t often let my kids wander off without an adult but Darlington Park feels like another world, safe and peaceful and I didn’t have any qualms about letting the kids go off to the jumping pillow or playground on their own.
There are two jumping pillows (one for big kids and one for little kids), a fenced in playground, a games area AND the most amazing pool area with two huge pools, a little pool for babies and not one – but two slides.
There is also a weekly activity guide for more family fun!
There are also lots of other activities we didn’t have time to do: go-karts, archery, lawn bowls and tennis. And if you are an NRMA member you will receive a 50% discount on all activities.
Darlington Park has it’s own beautiful cafe called “Ponds Cafe” with heaps of seating inside and out, a great menu with very reasonable prices. (my kids loved the $2 cornettos after a big day of swimming).
There is also a golf course alongside the ocean where the friendly kangaroos seem to enjoy the course as well.
AND of course, I mentioned the beach?
But possibly the biggest thrill for my kids was the kangaroos. They are so tame and you can find them in different areas of the park. They told us at check in not to pet or feed them which is fine, but what a wonderful place to co-exist with these beautiful animals.
Now if at the end of a holiday brothers are walking arm in arm (which NEVER happens, like the photo below) – then it must’ve been a pretty damn good holiday! Thanks Darlo!
