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!
20km from Dardanup, Western Australia is Gnomesville. Apparently, there are more than one version of how it all started and so a sign was erected detailing “The True Beginning”. There are thousands of gnomes scattered around the site. Many have been left there by individuals, whole families and various groups of people, including a caravan club. We had heard of Gnomesville before we left home and so Maureen purchased a gnome to take and leave at the site. We even saw some gnomes which had a message indicating that they had been left by visitors from other states. Thanks to

This was a real adventure, one our kids talk about again and again. And what a way to explore this section of The Kimberley! We booked a two-day, self guided kayaking tour.

You carry everything you need in your canoes – so pack lightly! Day 1 It was a 6.15am start and an hour’s drive.

by Overland Exposure Our CAMPS Ambassadors, Dan and Manda said Membinup Beach, WA is 100% WOW! Here’s what they said: 1hr East of Esperance Off-road set-ups only as the road is unpredictable and dirt. The entrance to the beach was tight, but our big rig fit, just! There is a camping area behind the dunes/beach, but only a few large spots and the rest are small. You can camp on the beach itself but be mindful of soft sand. No facilities at all, so fully self contained is required Tides come up really high so think about where you set-up
