Holiday Park

BIG4 Karuah Jetty Holiday Park

Port Stephens, NSW

Park overview

BIG4 Karuah Jetty Holiday Park is situated on 28 picturesque acres right on the shores of the peaceful Karuah River with bushland surrounds. 

Perfect for a family holiday with fun kid-friendly facilities, including a pool and splash play area, giant jumping pillow, playground, pedal go-karts for hire and a 250 metre long private jetty for great fishing. 

Conveniently located 5 minutes from the highway for overnight stops, only 2.5 hours from Sydney and just 50 minutes north of Newcastle.

It's a great place to get the kids outdoors or just relax and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet!
