Think outside the square these school holidays and come visit us at Casino on the NSW North Coast.

Traditionally people head to the coast over the Christmas and New Year holiday season.  Personally, we don’t think the Christmas holidays should be all about the beach!  There’s so much to do here in the Richmond Valley and, best of all, we have availability to accept last minute bookings over the holidays.

Can’t find accommodation? We still have availability for the December / January holidays. Book now for Easter to avoid disappointment.

Are you finding it hard to book accommodation on the North Coast during the school holidays?

The limit on overseas travel during COVID has seen a surge in local travel to Northern NSW. After a tough start to the year, the volume of people holidaying in NSW caravan parks has been a welcome reprieve for everyone involved in local tourism – thank you!

While we’ve been at capacity for the last few months, the good news is, we do have availability over the Christmas holidays.

Traditionally, people head to the coast for a classic Aussie holiday at the beach.  This year we want to change that!  We hear that this increase in demand has meant that most caravan parks on the coast are fully booked.  We invite you to think outside the square and come to Casino and explore the beautiful Richmond Valley this year.  Rest assured, there’s plenty here to do for everyone of all ages.

If you can’t bear to spend Christmas away from the coast, we are only 45 minutes from the unspoilt beaches at Evans Head.  Surrounded by national parks and river estuaries, Evans Head is often considered the hidden gem of the North coast.

DID YOU KNOW? Casino Holiday Park is only 2 hours from the Gold Coast, 3 hours to Brisbane or a 90-minute flight to Sydney from Lismore Airport?
