Such an awesome atmosphere, it’s close to the beach & town, but away from everyone else. It’s a place where you can mingle with others, or have your own chill time.

"There isn't a bad thing I can say about Surfaris."

The food is absolutely incredible (the best by far you can get in Crescent Head), the coffee is next level, the rooms are amazing but above all the staff are unbelievably friendly and professional. We were caught in Crescent Head during the floods and the managers were so hospitable, they looked after us like family. It made our extended stay feel like an extended holiday.

"Can’t wait to book my next trip up here!"

Came for the weekend and ended up extending for the whole week. Weekend away with my partner turned into a 6 day holiday. The rooms were spacious, clean with amazing temperature control. Highly recommend a sunset cocktail before dinner near the pool. Food was incredible from unique Mexican spreads to warm Indian curries on a cold night. The team were excellent in adapting and creating a unique atmosphere to every occasion or weather condition. Can’t wait to book my next trip up here!

"Awesome venue, great staff."

4WD Beach access just down the road. Away from the hustle and bustle of a packed holiday time Crescent Head but close enough to hook in when you need to. Very comfortable and clean rooms, excellent facilities.
