Family Stays

Come and enjoy an unforgettable family getaway at Sargood on Collaroy, a world-first first resort purpose built for people living with a spinal cord injury, their family and friends.

Designed from the ground up with wheelchair accessibility in mind, we have the recipe for a stress-free stay.

Whether you’re after a stay packed full of exciting activities or just some time to relax with the kids, Sargood is the perfect resort to create some wonderful family memories.


“It’s a massive benefit to just reconnect after so much has changed and this is a good place for families to reconnect. Your kids aren’t around forever so you need to have these precious moments. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in a chair here – you’re just a dad, a mum, a child. You’re you.”

Darryl SteinGuest at Sargood on Collaroy

"Forrest went out on the jet-propelled board and caught his first wave. The look on his face was magical and it was all too much for me. I broke down in tears of happiness and I couldn’t stop crying. These were my first tears of joy since this crazy part of our life started... We were finally living again not just recovering… relaxed, free, us again as a family... without the stresses of the unpredictability that comes with disabled travel. Thank you Sargood… your impact on our life will last eternally."

Cassy CampbellGuest at Sargood on Collaroy

"We were a little apprehensive at first to stay at Sargood, concerned it was going to be clinical, like rehab. We couldn't have been more wrong, this was one of the best resorts we have ever been to. The location is second to none and the service is 6 star. The mix of guests staying was varied and the activities available equal (or better) most 5 star resorts. Although this is a resort dedicated for people with spinal cord injuries and their families it truly is a 'destination' holiday. We will be back later this year. Thanks for the amazing service."

"What an amazing place. Everything has been considered. Can not fault the facility or the staff. Everyone there went out of their way to make my son and our entire family’s stay well beyond any expectations. The best thing is that the entire family gets to enjoy the experiences together. We will definitely be back and would encourage anyone else check it out."

Karen HodgsonGuest at Sargood on Collaroy

"Just had 10 relaxing days at Sargood with my 2 sons. Sean has spent 10 years in bed, so this was far from his comfort zone. Hesitant at first, with encouragement from both ourselves and the staff he tried things which were many years in the past. A wonderful atmosphere with carefully chosen staff, gives people with SCI and their families/friends a first class holiday. The design of the complex is a dream, the technology-ideas are limitless, the management is unobtrusive but first class. To all involved in our stay a huge thank you. Can't wait for Sean's next stay."
