Green time is better than screen time


We all know that green time is better than screen time. But holidaying with kids can sometimes seem like hard work. 

Living in close quarters, squabbling siblings, cries of ‘I’m bored’ – you may find yourself quickly craving another holiday without the kid’s when it’s done.

It doesn’t have to be that way. 

Reflections Holiday Parks can be found in 37 fun locations across NSW including the inland dams of Country NSW, surfing spots in Byron Bay and the ‘Humpback Highways’ of the Sapphire Coast. 

And every single park is packed with things to keep the little ones entertained and engaged. Outside – in nature. 

Reflections holiday parks offer cabins, with all the comforts of home, caravan spots and camping – for a great, budget break under the stars. 

For a truly unique ‘back to nature’ experience, consider glamping at Reflections Holiday Park Jimmys Beach. The kids will love to watch dolphins leaping through the breaking waves. Hike up nearby Mount Yacaaba and you will find stunning views over Nelson Bay and Port Stephens. Toast marshmallows over the communal camp fire and let the kids spot local possums, goannas and friendly-kookaburras. 

At Seal Rocks the Reflections Holiday park is nestled between flourishing green forest and the aptly-named Number One beach. It’s a great spot for the kids to learn to surf or try a spot of beach fishing. For a real challenge, take the kids on a hike to the Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse or jump on a mountainbike and hit the tracks. Older kids will love diving. The areas is known as one of New South Wales’ best diving spots. 

Reflections Holiday Park in Mylestom is the place for dog-lovers. This park is pet-friendly and dogs are permitted on sites all year. 

If you haven’t heard of Mylestom, you’ve been missing out. This gorgeous little town on the New South Wales mid north coast backs onto the Bongil Bongil National Park between the ocean and the Bellinger River. 

Yes, it really does look like this at sunset. You will love Mylestom.

Head into Bellingen for some alternative vibes, drop a fishing line in the river or take a dip in the tidal pool. Just wait until you see Bonville Beach – it’s incredible for long walks at sunset and you will often be the only ones leaving footsteps. 

A little further north and you will find Red Rock. Reflections Holiday Parks Red Rock is a few kilometers from the highway – but you won’t hear a sound. This holiday park is one of the best for stargazing as it is situated in kilometres of undeveloped coastline. The large private sites here are ideal for campers and caravaners, or make yourself at home in a comfortable cabin.

The kids will love running along the beach in the day. At night, if they are not too tired you can throw open the tent for a spot of star gazing.  There’s nothing quite so magical for a kid as their first glimpse of the universe above.

So why not seize the moment, gather the crew and plan a Reflections Holiday Parks family getaway they’ll remember fondly for years to come. 

Because let’s face it, green time is always better than screen time.
