When you want to go a little premium by the coast
BY TAYA CALDER-MASON
Already a popular holiday spot amongst north coast travellers, Reflections Holiday Parks Bonny Hills has just added another reason as to why it’s the perfect destination for your next getaway.
Suitable for everyone in the family (even your fur babies!) Bonny Hills is the ideal spot with school holiday activities, pet-friendly accommodation and the brand new premium cabins that will impress even the most refined palettes. Architecturally designed and positioned on the water's edge, the boutique-style cabins are modern chic meets coastal glam. Ideal for either romantic getaways or family escapes with the cabins sleeping up to five and coming fully equipped with everything you need to ensure a carefree weekend away.
The cabins come with generously sized bedrooms, an internal laundry, bathroom and contemporary style kitchen. The highlight of course has to be that eastern
facing timber deck that makes for the perfect spot to catch the sunrise with a cup of tea in hand or an afternoon summer cook up on the barbecue. With
plenty of space outside the cabins, the site is perfectly set up for a group of friends to play a game of cricket on or some fetch with your dog on
the lush green grass overlooking the ocean.
Ensuring everyone has been catered for, two of the seven premium cabins are pet-friendly with leather couches and an enclosed gate on the verandah so your fur friend can join in on all the action! Due to its prime position and loyal following of return customers that spans over 50 years, the entire park has 60 powered stations including 6 premium cabins, 8 deluxe cabins and 3 glamping tents (that’s right, take your camping game up a notch with these four person kitted out tents).
If you’re a keen surfer then pack your board as Rainbow Beach offers some of the best swell in the area. It’s also loved by many for its first-rate fishing and is home to some of the best whale watching spots in NSW. They even have a dog wash to ensure your pooch stays clean amongst all the sandy beach days!
If food is more your flavour and you don’t want to cook in your private kitchen (it is the holidays right!?) then be sure to check out Where to eat in Port Mac Guide. For something nice and close head down the road to Delizioso’s
for an Italian feast or Bonny Hills Beach Hotel for all your pub grub needs. Always thinking of their patrons first, Reflections also offers a free
courtesy bus to and from the pub, 10am until 10pm daily!
The park also hosts common areas which are popular with vacationers for happy hour drinks whilst getting to know your new neighbours. If it’s a sunny day then take advantage of the incredible views by hiking up North Brother Mountain or Old Bottlebutt Tree. If you’re not up for a big walk take a stroll down the road to Crave Cafe for your coffee fix.
If you fancy yourself a wine then you’re in for a treat, a short 10 minutes down the road is Long Point Vineyard & Art Gallery. Serving up delicious wine, alcoholic ginger beer and condiments whilst showcasing local artists on the walls. Moorebeer Brewing Co and Black Duck Brewery located in Port Macquarie are also worth the drive while Billabong Zoo and Stoney Aqua Park have you covered for your kid friendly adventures.
With the arrival of their new premium cabins, there has never been a better time to pack up the car and head up north. With its prime location, right on
the edge of Port Macquarie, Reflections Holiday Parks Bonny Hills should definitely top the list for your next getaway.
