Health and Safety (updated 23/09/2020)

Our doors have officially re-opened to guests from Regional Victoria. As per the State Government Roadmap, we’re currently unable to accept holidaymakers from Metropolitan Melbourne (but we have a feeling it won't be too much longer!) however essential travellers are permitted.

Future bookings for Regional and Metropolitan Melbourne are open according to the recently announced State Government Roadmap. September and Christmas holidays and beyond are filling fast so book online or give our team a call on 03 5258 1133 between 9.00am and 6.00pm daily to plan your post-lockdown holiday. After all, you deserve something to look forward to.

Facilities Currently Open: Giant Jumping Pillow, Outdoor Playground, Giant Chess, Go-Kart & Bike Hire, Tennis Court, Basketball Court, BBQs and Camp Kitchen, Mud Day Spa and, of course, every parent’s favourite coffee and/or local wine delivery PLUS Take-Home CoutaKidz Activity Packs, Board Games and Sports Equipment are all available free of charge to keep the kids busy indoors

The health and wellness of our guests, staff, and wider community remain our number one priority so, to comply with current COVID-19 restrictions, some communal facilities and activities remain closed, as per the State Government Roadmap to Reopening. This includes the indoor pool and spa, indoor games room and playroom, Fitness Studio, Yoga classes and CoutaKidz Activities. Fingers crossed this won’t be for too much longer – we will certainly keep you updated as things change. 

Our park is fortunate to be surrounded by open spaces, beautiful beaches, and fresh sea air so there is still plenty to look forward to. The weather is warming up, the fish are biting and the beautiful beach across the road is calling your name. Rewind the clock and immerse yourself in a classic holiday of your childhood…go rock pool rambling, brave the ocean for a swim, fish off the pier and reconnect with walks on the sand in the sunset – bliss.

For your peace of mind, we have abolished our cancellation policy. You can check out the details and visit our COVID-19 health and safety page here.

The Golightly Family

In 1969 a dairy farm was purchased by Don & Judy Golightly with the vision of creating quality accommodation for tourists visiting Queenscliff. After a year of work, including planting 300 native trees, developing 60 caravan sites and building an amenities block, wood BBQ and swings for the children, the Beacon Caravan Park was opened in December 1970. 

Fast forward fifty years and the second and third generations of Golightly's continue to welcome thousands of happy guests per year.

BIG4 Beacon Resort is recognised as one of Australia’s leading and most innovative BIG4 holiday parks, with over 85 tourism awards to its name and a range of luxury facilities. 

We look forward to seeing you at Beacon soon.
