Get Wild n Awake at North Star. Enrich your knowledge of nature, and experience adventure and connection to life on this precious planet on which we live.     

Nature, Insight, Adventure.

Hastings Point beach

Wild n Awake is about relaxing in the peace and vitality of nature where you’ll enjoy quiet, reflective time. It’s about gaining insight into ourselves as well as the precious ecosystems that we depend upon. It’s about learning techniques that can be applied in the sometimes chaotic nature of everyday life.

Nestled between the pristine Hastings Point beach, national parks and tidal estuary you’re in the perfect location to reconnect with nature. Venture to a Wallum heathland and mangrove wetland. Learn about sand dunes and beaches. Wander through paperbark and eucalyptus forests all within walking distance from the Resort. Take a guided tour of an unsurpassed headland and rocky shore ecosystem.

From kayaking, snorkelling and silent walking to star gazing, art and music. Wild n Awake programs are designed to suit a range of ages and capabilities, some more adventurous, some more quiet and gentle.

    This holiday park IS next level AMAZING! The facilities are like no other park. We travelled for 4 months and stayed in dozens & dozens of holiday parks but nothing compared to this park. The kids absolutely loved it. They always had something fun to do. It was so great to have the kids club, hard for parents on holidays to get child free time!!! The positioning of the park was brilliant, only a two minute walk to the beach, 25 mins to Byron and still close to the Gold Coast. The staff were VERY helpful and always friendly. Thank you for a memorable stay. We will absolutely be back soon.


    This is possibly the best Holiday / Caravan Park ever! We had the most wonderful family holiday over Easter 2018 and have booked to return in Easter 2019. The park has everything, it is ideal for Kids of all ages with a Kids Club, Arcade room, outdoor play area, water park, water slides, pool and quiet roads for the kids to ride bikes and scooters around. Adults have their own private area with a lap pool and spa's, gym, hairdresser and massage.


    Definitely one of the nicest places to stay on the Tweed Coast We stayed with a friend who is a resident at the park, and it is a beautiful location. The facilities include a water park, private swimming pool for residents, laundry, communal kitchen, spa and lap pool and Ripples Cafe which serves a very good breakfast. There is also a wonderful marine museum which is open to the public on Saturday mornings and the curator, Ted, is incredibly informative.


    We will definitely be back! We just came back from our first family holiday with our 2.5yr old and we loved it!! We stayed in one of the cabins which fitted the 3 of us in perfectly! And it was great to have a full working kitchen so we were able to cook/make all our meals instead of buying takeout every day. There was so much for us to do and our daughter was exhausted after every day!! Weekends were crazy busy so it was nice during the week to have spare space to play ball and even better when we had the whole pool/splash Park to ourselves!! We will definitely be back!
