BIG4 Sunshine Resort, South West Rocks

161 - 171 Phillip Drive, South West Rocks 2431
Top 10 Resorts Australia

BIG4 Sunshine Resort at South West Rocks is out of this world! The facilities are arguably the best in NSW; Shipwreck Island Water Park boasts 4 slides, a tipping bucket and a crying waterfall skull cave, beside a lagoon style pool & toddler pool. There is an undercover jumping pillow & playground (great for all weather play), a games room, mini golf, half court tennis, movie room all included, and go-karts and canoes for hire.

BIG4 Sunshine get it - they are all parents with kids - and they understand how busy life gets. Their live shows, kids club craft & family fun activities will make sure you all disconnect from technology and connect as a family.

Kids club is now year round in at Sunshine Resort – Monday & Friday mornings there is MORE fun to be had with free kids club so make sure you include these days in your stay so you can have a bit of “me” time too! If you are staying in the school holidays, our awesome kids club staff will keep your kids entertained with Superhero, Nature, Retro or Pirate themed craft & games, along with our popular Family Trivia, Ninja Races & Discos.


The kids that stay with BIG4 Sunshine never want to go home thanks to the unrivalled facilities aimed at kids 12 and under.

Start at Shipwreck Island, which has to be seen to be believed, an old ship that has been transformed into an amazing Water Park with smile-inducing slides, a tipping bucket, a climbing net and crows nest. Let their imaginations run wild on the ship and in Skull Cave.

When the sun comes out, head to the all-weather undercover jumping pillow and playground for some sheltered all-age fun, play some mini golf at Sharkey’s Putt Putt or try to beat dad at half court tennis. The games room has brand new play stations and ping pong, air hockey, and a pool table. If the kids still have energy left, hire a canoe or go-kart to explore the resort and saltwater lagoon.

If you are staying in the school holidays, there is even more to do with themed kids club activities, live shows and “Family Club” where you can play, laugh and reconnect with each other and make new friends in Retro Races, Scallywag Scavenger Hunts and team events.

South West Rocks has just been voted the best city or town to visit in NSW by "A quiet, slightly old fashioned beach town snoozing on the Mid North Coast, halfway between Sydney and Brisbane, South West Rocks is wonderfully free of concrete development and flanked by fine beaches, the Macleay River and national parks,” Traveller writer Brian Johnson said.
