Top Things to Do with Kids in South West Rocks

South West Rocks is a great place to bring the kids. If they ever want to leave the park, there are so many places to take them nearby or in the Macleay Valley Coast. 

Have a chat to us at reception - either over the phone or on email, we've all got kids or grand-kids so can help you with what activities your kids would most like to do!

So much for the kids to do!

Plenty to do! 

  • Kowabunga Dude! Trial Bay Beach - only a 10 minute walk through the bush to one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia.
    • It is a huge bay so there it is shallow for a fair way out and there are rarely large waves - great for the little ones, safe & wonderful for paddleboarding, surfing, boogie boarding and snorkeling.
  • I got one! Macleay River - the breakwall
    • Fishing, fishing and more fishing - there is nothing like the thrill of hooking your first fish on holiday...don't let it get away! The breakwall, off the beach, on a charter boat, the choice is yours!
  • Yee ha! Look at me go! Cycling:
    • Bring your own or hire ours and explore the cycle path that takes you in to town or ride along the beach with the waves alongside you.
  • Take a walk on the wildside!
    • Plenty of bush tracks in the National Parks to explore in Arakoon National Park​
