Hi everyone!

My partner, myself and my 2 year old son are going on holidays soon to Pottsville North, we are staying at Pottsville North Holiday Park. I was just wondering if anyone that knows the area can give us a few idea's on what to do. I've searched the internet but want some real advice on things to enjoy in the area.

If thats the Pottsville on Pacific coast before the Tweed Rvr

theres swimming snorkelling surfboarding fishing bush walks,ummmm thats about it, for more entertainment you have to travel to Tweed Heads like movies putt putt clubs

Pottsville hasn't changed much in 20 yrs except there are now heaps of housing in condos units penthouses, damn, I wished I bought the land then when it was going for peanuts because there was nothing there, still nothing

but ?

We havn't stayed at the Pottsville North caravan park, but it is a beautiful area.
The Pottsville South holiday park is run by the same group but is much closer to the small township which has shops restaurants etc. It is also right on Mooball creek which would be a great place for your little one to explore.
Might be worth a look before you make a firm descision if you havn't alteady done so.

Thanks guys :)

We've already booked, we usually stay at Boyds Bay Holiday Park which is also run through the same company and we're happy with them. We thought we'd try somewhere different and one which has a playground. Which is why we've chosen this one.. (It's 3 hours away from where we live anyway, so its a bit far away to check out).

We are looking forward to a quite little town for a change. As long as there is the beach and fishing we'll be happy.

These are the few things I've already sussed out which are close enough that we may visit.. depending on the time, weather and money.

Tropical Fruit World (15 mins away)
Parrot Garden (About half and hour away)
Macadamia Castle (40 mins away)
Pottsville Environmental Park (4 mins away)
Cudgen Nature Reserve (10 mins)

My partner also wants to do a day trip to Byron Bay, and we also want to check out the local markets as well as they will be on when we are down there.

We live in Kingscliff just up the road from Pottsville and there is heaps to do in the area. Byron Bay is about a 20 minute drive away. Brunswick Heads is nice also. Probably do the Macadamia Castle on the same day you do Byron Bay. Bangalow is also a nice quaint little town to visit as is Mullumbimby. Another day trip would be out to Mt Warning National Park and stopping in at places like Uki, Tyalgum and Chillingham on the way - do the loop which takes you around all the towns and ends up back in Murwillumbah. Go and have a look at Salt and Kingscliff which is about a 15 minute drive away, nice restaurants and parks. The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary would be about a 30 minute drive from Pottsville on the Pacific Hwy. Coolangatta is great with beautiful beaches and heaps of cafes/restaurants/surf clubs. And then there is always the tourist attractions of the Gold Coast which would be about a 45 minute drive away, eg, Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise.

Thanks heaps, just the post I was after. We're only going for a week so I don't think we'll be able to fit it all in but I just want to keep the options open so if we don't feel like doing one thing or its raining we can always do something else.

Absolutely beautiful :)

The park we stayed at was not far from the town at all, we walked there a few times. The cabin had plenty of room and reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly. We loved that it had a playground so we didn't have to go far for my little boy to have a play. Also had a toddler pool but it wasn't quite warm enough for swimming, although my partner did and told me it wasn't so bad once you got used to it.

The weather was perfect most of the week (except one day, which was all good anyway). My partner enjoyed fishing off the rocks in the little inlet behind the South Holiday Park while we played on the beach. (Only caught 3 fish that we could keep, one of them was in the crab pot which was in the river behind the holiday park).

We went to Brunswick Heads for the day (went to the markets as well and got a hand made bag for Mother's Day). It was beautiful there too!

Also did a Byron Bay trip, up to the light house, can't believe they wanted $7 for parking up there, so we gave it a miss. But managed to have a quick look, so that was ok.

We were going to do the nature walk but my partner was getting eaten alive by mozzies so we decided to give it a miss. So that's what we got up to.

We had a great time, and definitely recommend it.

We also checked out Mullumbimby.

And on the way home Kingscliff.. lots of nice houses there, bet they want an arm and a leg for them.
