LIFE’S A BEACH AT KING REEF RESORT
You need a break; but you don’t want to be spending a fortune. You need some time to relax; but you have kids. You need a change of scenery to re-energise; but you don’t want to travel too far. You need King Reef Resort in beautiful Kurrimine Beach.
As soon as you arrive the kids will be off exploring. It’s the kind of place you feel comfortable not being a helicopter parent and letting your kids have a bit of freedom.
Our 2-bedroom beach shacks are located, you guessed it, right on the beach with ocean views. They’re a home away from home, with a large fridge, full kitchen, lounge room, bunk beds for the kids, and two cabins even have a spa bath. The other three cabins have a shower.
Bree James recalls her family’s visit…
“Before we had even unpacked the car my kids were off playing with children they had met five minutes prior. We got to have uninterrupted adult conversation without nagging children or anyone double dipping their chips. The kids were too occupied to even notice and this set the tone for our entire weekend.”
Kids (and adults) love playing on the beach and exploring the low tide looking for starfish. At certain times of year you can walk out to King Reef and see all sorts of amazing sea life. If you have a boat, then this is a great place to go fishing. Or simply fish from the beach.
The pool is cool, refreshing, relaxing and shady. If the kids have had enough of the water they can ride their bikes, or you can hire one of our family pedal bikes and take the family for a ride around Kurrimine Beach!
Even though there are BBQ facilities, and the cabins have a kitchen, to truly relax it’s wonderful not to have to cook every meal. King Reef Resort has a great pub attached to it, with yummy meals, cold beers, and live entertainment some nights too. There is also a BYO café across the road that is open from 8am EVERY DAY offering breakfast, lunch and dinner with menu items like pizza, fish and chips, burgers and loads more. They make a great coffee and their milkshakes are pretty great too!
