A good percentage of camping and caravanning travellers stop at Caravan Parks in Australia. There are thousands to choose from, and you do not need to be self-sufficient. This means they are suitable for all types of camping, from swags, rooftop tents, tents, camper trailers, campers, motorhomes and caravans.
Few have room for Big Rigs, however caravan parks also offer cabins or glamping. Many caravan parks are located in idyllic spots – close to town or beachside.
Many campers start their adventures in caravan parks as you have familiar comforts and facilities from home. Families can seek out extra attractions like water parks, jumping pillows and playgrounds – which means you can enjoy a get together and not even leave the park!

Here’s where we stopped: Balladonia was a lunch stop with a pretty multicoloured picket fenced playground. Oh, we were so

CAMPS Ambassadors Dale and Tracey were there recently and said, “Just 11km of dirt road leads you to the main campground …we really got lucky with our camp spot. “We had site 13 which gave us our own private site on the cliff and a path down to the beach. At low tide we enjoyed a walk amongst the shallow rock pools where we found some octopus and some huge clam shells. Octopus in
Cable Beach is an iconic location in The Kimberley – there’s the red red sand, holiday atmosphere and the camel rides. After improvements at Broome’s Town Beach and Chinatown, travellers and locals can look forward to a $36.5 million foreshore redevelopment at Cable Beach.

Upgrades are planned for the amphitheatre, carpark as well as renovations for Broome Surf Lifesaving Club. All of this means better
