BIG4 Colonial Holiday Park is situated approximately 5kms west of the mouth of the mighty Manning River which flows in from the coastal town of Harrington and the south side of Crowdy Head National Park. The Village is close to walking tracks, bird life, wild flowers and panoramic views of the coast stretching north to Port Macquarie and South to Foster Tuncurry.
With easy access to all the attractions of the Manning Valley, including Taree, Manning Point, Diamond Beach, Crowdy Head and Hallidays Point, the Leisure Village is an “over 55’s” living/lifestyle environment with an abundance of trees, birdlife, open spaces, peace and tranquillity.
It offers security for you and your personal possessions and entry is via a boom gate. Containing 54 long term permanent sites, the Village has approximately 80 permanent residents. Our residents are a friendly bunch of people from a wide range of backgrounds.
You are certain to meet interesting people and make lifelong friendships.
BIG4 Colonial Holiday Park is 12kms from Crowdy Head, which as part of its iconic history, has one of the few remaining original lighthouses in the area, built in 1878. Crowdy Head also offers a safe swimming beach for young and old and extending 15kms north, a surf beach which allows driving of 4WD vehicles. For those fishing enthusiasts, you have the boat launching facilities as well. Take a stroll around the beach or walk up to the lighthouse (not for the faint hearted!) to do a spot of whale watching in the season. There are an abundance of markets in and around the Manning Valley – too many to name here, but all have interesting stalls with farmers produce days as well.
Heading South, Taree is a 20 minute drive for the larger shopping /business/industrial areas, and a 45 minute drive North to Port Macquarie, which has much to offer for a weekend away perhaps. Sydney is only a 3.5 hour drive south, and you are in the thick of city life! There is the local bus service that stops outside the gates of the Village and travels to and from Taree daily. Taree has a large modern public hospital, providing a full range of services to our area; full emergency services, medical, surgical and allied health services, including dietetics, oncology and palliative care. For those of you with private health cover, Mayo Private Hospital also offers a wide range of health and medical facilities.
