The multi award-winning North Star Holiday Resort at Hastings Point is an idyllic, family-friendly destination that holds a special place in the hearts and memories of generations of happy holidaymakers from across Australia.
Located just 30 minutes south of Gold Coast Airport on the beautiful Tweed Coast,North Star Holiday Resort is nestled between the pristine Hastings Point beach and safe tidal estuary of Cudgera Creek. The resort is surrounded by national parks and offers countless spots year-round for swimming, kayaking, and family fun in the sun. Hastings Point’s white sandy beach stretches for kilometres to the north and south, with great options for those who enjoy surfing, fishing, a stroll or a beach run.
Accommodation at North Star ranges from luxury poolside spa villas to spacious family cabins, caravan and camp sites. Cabins and villas are fully self-contained, with everything required to cook for a hungry family. Whatever style of accommodation you choose at the North Star, almost all activities for the kids are free of charge during your stay.
The $1.3 million, architecturally-designed waterpark, Sammy’s Adventure Lagoon, takes family holidays to a new and exciting level. Standing alongside North Star’s popular Sammy’s Adventure Lagoon, the two brand new 8.2 metre high tubular super slides add water-fuelled fun at every twist and turn as they spiral their way more than 60 metres down to poolside landing platforms below. Perfect for the big kid in all of us! Sammy’s is complemented by North Star’s seasonally heated swimming pools, slides and a shaded poolside deck area where parents can relax yet keep an eye on the kids.
As well as tennis, games room, pool tables and outdoor playground, North Star has its own kids’ club, Neptunes. Fully-supervised and free, kids are welcome to join in the fun and games at this gigantic indoor centre during off-peak weekends and daily throughout the school holidays.
Designed for kids aged 3-12 years, Neptunes offers hours of fun with a three level spiral slide, ball pool, mirror maze, flying fox, themed activities and arts and crafts.
This means parents have free time to seek out North Star’s popular ‘grown-up’ experiences, including Seascape Leisure Centre, a luxury retreat that offers massages, beauty treatments, hairdressing salon, 25-metre lap pool, temperature-controlled spas, sauna and gym.
There’s great contemporary dining at North Star’s restaurant, Ripples, and for many holidaymakers, it’s a welcomed, affordable addition they never expected to find onsite at their holiday park. Ripples is spacious, family-friendly and affordable, and the perfect venue for a quick snack, a leisurely coffee or relaxing lunch or dinner.
