Kalbarri Tudor Holiday Resort is a few minutes walk away from the main hub of shops, cafes, restaurants and the river in Kalbarri.
We booked a weeks stay at Kalbarri Tudor Resort in the October school holidays. We reserved a powered site for a family of four in a tent. We were allocated what we think was one of the best locations in the resort overlooking the main playground area and right next to the toilets and shower block. We were also on a large corner block which has mature trees for shade and lots of thick grass.The resort offers lots of facilities for families with kids of all ages.
The playground was a big attraction for us with lots of play equipment for children of all ages including a digger, swings, play structure with climbing and slide, a see-saw and a merry-go-round. There are many tent sites around the playground, so for us, it meant we could be at our tent and see the kids playing. There’s plenty of natural tree shade around the area as well BBQs and picnic tables making this a super area to chill out and eat while the kids play.
The jumping pillow has many rules to avoid injury, and the kids had great fun. This one has full fabric shade over it and is set in sand.
The swimming pool is perfect for kids that are swimming with or without floaties, but it is about chest height for an average adult and only a few small steps entry either side. Half of the pool is shaded which is great, but it was super cold when we visited in October. The kids were blue within a few minutes. There’s plenty of shade around the pool and lots of sun loungers, tables and chairs. The pool area is fully fenced with a lockable child gate and overlooks the main playground area.
There are a few communal BBQ and picnic tables around the main playground and pool. Ideal for chillaxing in the late afternoon or early morning.
We hadn’t planned on doing laundry, but one of the kids had an “accident”, so we had to wash the sleeping bags. Lucky for us they had huge top loaders which ran for only 30minutes cycles, so we had plenty of time to hang them to dry. There’s also a baby bath in the main shower block too.
The tv room is a nice quiet chill out area for the kids complete with comfy chairs.
The main Kalbarri Tudor Holiday Resort reception office offers bags of ice, and there are plenty of fresh water taps around each site.
Another attraction was Frank the talking parrot who is housed near the main reception office. The kids loved getting on their bikes or scooters throughout the day for a trip to see Frank. The site has gravel roads which aren’t fantastic for scooters or bikes as they make a mess of the kids’ knees and hands when they fall off, but that didn’t stop them from going around the site several times a day.
The campsite offers en-suite sites which looked awesome and great for those with babies or new to camping. The resort also has various sized cabins to hire around the compound.
Every afternoon we were visited by the local ice cream van which became a daily treat for the kids!There’s plenty to do locally in Kalbarri with children. We explored the river off-road in our 4×4’s and enjoyed a whole stretch of beach to ourselves for the day. You can also hire boats daily which makes for great fun messing on the river.
Book well in advance as the ensuite and cabins get booked up well in advance during school holidays.
We will definitely return Kalbarri Tudor Holiday Resort for many years to come!
