Quiet, simple and naturally beautiful, a stay at Reflections Holiday Parks Hawks Nest will take you back to the holidays of your childhood, when the days were long and the stresses were few.
Nestled between Bennett’s Beach and the village of Hawks Nest this caravan park is miles away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Port Stephens and Nelson Bay – the ideal spot for a relaxed and authentic Aussie beach holiday.
Feel the sand between your toes on one of Australia’s top 20 beaches and keep an eye out for the playful local dolphins. Hike up Mount Yacaaba and enjoy the scenic views along the coast. Replenish with a bite at one of the fantastic local restaurants, or enjoy a round or two at our neighbouring championship rated 18-hole golf course.
With larger-than-average flat sites, it’s a breeze to bring in the RV or caravan and campers are well catered for with our range of activities and facilities. There are also a range of cabins for every budget, ideal for those who prefer to pack light.
Settle in then set about exploring the pristine beauty of the area. Whether its watching the dolphins alongside the ferry to Nelson Bay, enjoying fish and chips by the river in nearby Tea Gardens, or checking out the surf at Winda Woppa, there are countless holiday memories to be made at Reflections Holiday Parks Hawks Nest.

Located near the park entrance, the camp kitchen, with its great community atmosphere, provides an undercover area for you to cook, relax and meet other guests. Although you will need to bring your own essentials, the camp kitchen has all the basics with a fridge/freezer, stand alone stove, sandwich press, microwave and toaster. There is a second undercover BBQ area in the centre of the park with BBQ’s and a sink. There are plenty of picnic tables to sit, soak up the scenery and enjoy the natural environment.
Although you can bring your own charcoal or gas BBQ (no wood burning), we do NOT allow camp fires at our park. The communal BBQ’s around the park are a great place to relax with family and friends after an adventure filled day.
Bennetts Beach is just a hop, skip and a jump away. Although you can’t see it, you can definitely hear the roar of the surf. Bennetts Beach is the main beach in Hawks Nest and is a patrolled surf beach. Bring the surfboards for an early morning paddle to get the day started! The dog is welcome too, just north of the golf course! If bigger waves are not your vibe, take a walk down the beach to Jimmys Beach (bay beach).
If the kids are not yet exhausted discovering the natural environment and beach, there is playground just outside the park entrance. Feel free to bring your own push bikes and if they still have some energy left, let them have ago in one of our peddle cars (available for hire from reception). The golf course is accessible from the park. Bring the golf clubs for a great walk in the sunshine. The park is short stroll to local shops, cafes and bar.
