Green Cauldron Waterpark
'Green Cauldron' Waterpark
BIG4 Tweed Billabong Holiday Park has raised the bar when it comes to water parks. We are proud to bring you what we believe is Australia’s premier holiday park water playground.
This incredible new feature steps beyond just providing a source of endless entertainment. It’s wonderful design takes you on a journey around the magnificent landscapes of the surrounding area.
Just like our kitchen and lounge, the waterpark is themed around our local area named ‘Australia’s Green Cauldron’ by Tourism Australia.
These surrounds were once a large volcano and are now home to the glorious formation known as Wollumbin-Mount Warning. This is the centrepiece of a national park of the same name and forms part of a World Heritage area.
Why the history lesson? Well, Mt Warning-Wollumbin is the inspiration for one of three themed areas that make up our sensational water park. This area of the water park includes several impressive water slides.
The fascinating rocks of Fingal Head are at the heart of another themed area and feature a tipping bucket and slide.
The marine life that can be spotted around Cook Island, just offshore from Fingal Head, is the inspiration for the third and final area. It boasts a toddler play section, complete with a froggie slide.
With something for all ages, our superb water park will provide younger guests with hours of entertainment. It is backed by ample space for adults to relax while watching their children at play.
The Waterpark is open to guests of the park and their day visitors only. Come and stay for a few days and try it out.
The Billabong is the heart of our park, both physically and emotionally. It’s what we’re named after and the fun radiates from it.
Try your luck with some fishing, have a swim or hire a kayak or stand-up paddleboard…there’s something here for everyone.
There are so many activities in and around the Billabong.
- Grab a kayak or stand-up paddleboard or any floaty you can find and get out on the water. We have kayaks and SUPs for hire, or you can bring you own fun (non-motorised only).
- Try your luck fishing from the edge of the Billabong or from the floating pontoon.
- Relax on the deck of the ‘Kitchen and Lounge’ and take in the view.
