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

This #graniteskywalk at Castle Rock near Albany Western Australia is a Definite MUST DO. This is absolutely the best image I have seen of this adventure. It really is as cool as it looks! Hands down, this was one of my (and the family’s) favourite walks in Australia. Granite Sky Walk, WA – Image Overland Exposure Challenging? Yes. Terrifying to look down? Well, a bit… Worth it? definitely! Overall you are looking at a 4.4 km return walk. National Parks say it is Class 5 and requires moderate to good fitness. Walk through yate, marri and karri forest, past the

This week we share our big lap in WA. And good news for 2024, finally – we’re coming back! Hoping to explore more of this beautiful state in winter – minus the kids. I truly treasure every adventure in this spectacular state, except Elephant Rock – but that’s next week. And it is not Elephant Rock’s fault! Find all these sites (like Derby, pictured) in the free CAMPS Australia Wide App and travel guides… Pink lakes and national parks… Hutt lagoon wasn’t this pink for us, but our Ambassadors caught it just right! We hiked along the coast at Kalbarri
