So here is everything you need to know about Big 4 Tweed Heads:
Big 4 Tweed Heads – entertaining the kids
The Tweed Heads Billabong is a huge water hole ideal for swimming and various other activities like fishing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. Some of the camp sites and cabins look right over the billabong – check these out below for more information.
Aqua Play Equipment
Located in the middle of the Big 4 Tweed Billabong are two different floating trampolines for the kids to try out. You can either swim or kayak out to them.
If you are into fishing you will love being able to fish straight from the Big 4 Billabong. You can catch mullet, bream, flathead and mangrove jack from the Billabong with prawns or even bread. You can purchase bait and hire fishing rods from the reception. Fishing rods are $4 AUD for 2 hours.
Kayaks / Stand up Paddle Boards
Bring your own or hire kayaks and stand up paddle boards from the reception. Kayaks cost $6 AUD or 2 hours and stand up paddle boards are $5 AUD per hour. Lifejackets are also provided for the kids on request.
We spent the majority of our time in the pool, also known as Lizzy’s Lagoon. Big 4 Tweed Heads has 2 pools right next to each other, one with a small waterslide for the kids and the other includes a spa.
There is ample of seating around the pool, including some very comfy lounges which I just loved chilling on!
On Saturday nights in Lizzy’s Lagoon the Big 4 Tweed Heads plays kids movies. On the night we were there the movie was Epic. Don’t forget to pack some popcorn!
Coral Cove Indoor Playground
Coral Cove is a small indoor play area for the younger kids. It is advertised for under 6’s, but I think the area is better suited to children under 4 years of age. Still a great place for the parents to take the little ones who need some space away from the bigger kids.
Myla loved this one – it’s a huge jumping pillow (kind a like a trampoline) which kids around her age just adore. It’s not very high and the area around it is sand which is great if the kids fall off.
There are 2 separate playgrounds in the Big 4 Tweed Heads, one next to the jumping jelly fish and one located by the kitchen / lounge area. Our camp site was right next to one of these playgrounds which was great to be able to watch Myla from our camp site.
The waterpark is fantastic!! It’s just like wet and wild on a tiny scale! There are 4 water slides, a giant tipping bucket and even a toddler area. There is heaps of seating for the parents, toilets and even BBQs if you want to cook up some lunch whilst the kids are occupied. Seriously your kids will never want to leave!!
You can hire pedal powered go karts to ride around the Big4 Tweed Billabong Holiday Park. The park has both single and double go karts for $10 per hour and there is also a 4 seater family go kart for $8 per 30 minutes. Kids under 7 must ride with an adult and an adult must drive the family go kart. Helmets and shoes must be worn whilst operating the go karts.

Final Comments on Big 4 Tweed Billabong
We found the staff at the Big4 Tweed Billabong Holiday Park super friendly, which is not always standard these days.
All of the park’s grounds, facilities and amenities were super clean and made the whole stay that much more enjoyable.
Another thing I liked about the park is that for $30 AUD you can purchase a late check out and stay until 4pm instead of their usual 10 am check out. This means you can get up and enjoy the parks facilities rather than jumping out of bed and scrambling to pack up the tent and get out by 10am.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Big 4 Tweed Heads and highly recommend it for families seeking an easy camping experience with loads of activities for the kids.
