Our visit to Big4 Sunshine – South West Rocks (Part 1)


You might’ve noticed if you follow Coffs for Kids on Facebook or Instagram that we spent last weekend at South West Rocks. We were invited for a weekend away thanks to Big 4 Sunshine – South West Rocks.

Because we had such an awesome time, I’ve had to do this in two parts – so the first part is about our GORGEOUS accommodation and Part 2 is about some of the activities and things myself and the kids got up to.

I picked up the kids after school on Friday afternoon and headed straight to South West Rocks, it is about an hour and a half south just near Kempsey, so an easy and quick drive to do – PERFECT for a weekend getaway!

So first of all… here is my review of our Luxury Cabin:

The boys were pretty impressed with the cabin as you can see!

I was shocked to learn these cabins are around 10 years old. They are in IMMACULATE condition and everything looks new. The standard of cleanliness is A+++, I couldn’t find a fault even if I tried.

This is the living/dining area with a large plasma screen TV and CD player. As you can see, very nicely decorated and comfortable. And I LOVED the red leather lounges, yes real leather! It also has reverse cycle air-conditioning.

The kitchen is very schmick, complete with dishwasher and microwave, 2 hotplates, full size fridge and everything else you need to prepare meals for the family.

And in a secret cupboard, a washer/dryer nicely tucked away!

This is the main bedroom, very tastefully furnished and also has its own flat screen TV for lazing around in bed TV-viewing!

And double bunks so the cabin can sleep up to 6. There is also loads of cupboard space and individual lights for each bunk.

This is the very large verandah at the entrance to the cabin with table and chairs.

And this is the view from the verandah – lovely bush. In the mornings you’ll most likely see kangaroos grazing.

This is what the kids loved best of all – seeing kangaroos EVERYWHERE in the park. They are very tame and don’t seem bothered by people at all. This photo was taken from my bedroom window. The boys sat here for ages watching this one graze in the grass late one afternoon.
