Members and guests of Riverside, Seaside and Haven Holiday Resorts can now use their Stay NSW and Parents NSW Vouchers towards bookings at any of our three resorts.
How to use your Stay NSW or Parents NSW Vouchers with Club Holiday Resorts
Vouchers can only be redeemed on direct bookings at our three resorts.
If you have booked through Booking.com or another third-party booking platform, you will be unable to use your vouchers.
Guests will only be able to redeem their Stay NSW Vouchers OR Parents NSW Vouchers per stay.
This means if you have two to six adults staying at one time, then all guests would be able to use their Stay NSW vouchers (either one person's or all adult Stay NSW vouchers) towards the one booking, OR their Parents vouchers (one $50 or multiple $50 vouchers).
Stay NSW or Parents NSW Vouchers can be used on new or existing bookings.
If you have already made a booking to stay with us directly to stay at one of our three holiday resorts in the near future, you will be able to use the vouchers towards your balance. Otherwise, if you are making a new direct booking, you can redeem the vouchers towards your deposit.
Vouchers need to redeemed and processed before October 9 2022.
Guests will need to redeem their vouchers before the 9th of October. Any vouchers not processed before this date will expire.
Voucher codes refresh every 15 minutes.
The voucher codes refresh after 15 minutes, which means they need to be processed by one of our busy reception team within the resort office hours and can't be emailed during the evenings or over the weekends. This may be tricky when using multiple guest Stay NSW vouchers, so we recommend calling or emailing the resort to find out the best way to proceed.
Please note Vouchers are non-refundable.
If you have to cancel your booking and are unable to schedule to a later date, we are sadly unable to refund the voucher amount.

Escape to Nature at Sussex
The NSW South Coast town of Sussex Inlet is the home to our bush hideaway, Haven Holiday Resort. Surrounded by native flora and fauna, and a mere 3hr drive south of Sydney and 2.75hrs from Canberra, Haven is the perfect location to escape it all.
Haven is tucked away in Shoalhaven's Conjola National Park and has private access to the sand and water of the rivulet that the town takes its name from. Across the water from Haven, you will find Jervis Bay Territory and the Booderee National Park that is owned and operated by the Wreck Bay Peoples.
It is a five-minute drive to the township of Sussex Inlet, which is set on a system of canals and the inlet that links St Georges Basin to the Tasman Sea; Swan Lake, which is the perfect spot for sailing and other water-based activities; and the Sussex Inlet Surf Life Saving Club and Cudmirrah Beach which is ideal for keen surfers.
Haven Holiday Resort has 14 two-bedroom self-contained apartments, 3 three-bedroom villas, and 1 three-bedroom executive residence. The resort has a heated pool, trampolines, play equipment, laundry, BBQs and picnic tables, with private water access and the Alemain bush track that takes you alongside the inlet into town.

New South Wales possesses some of the most spectacular beaches in the country, and the beaches of the Mid North Coast certainly hold their own against the 'Bondi's and the 'Byron's, but unlike those world famous beaches, you are much more likely to get lucky and possibly have a few of these beaches almost all to yourself.
