Clifton Showgrounds, Queensland
App

NEW App customer question: Do you list showground stays?

Clifton Showgrounds, Queensland Camps Australia Wide were probably the first ones to list showground camps! We love them, too! They are generally cheap, pet friendly and spacious BUT they have facilities. They’re a great place to start if you want to try different types of camping, because you still have the comforts of toilets, showers etc AND they are generally fenced, with a caretaker, or close to- if not in – town. Please check your filters when you search for them. Delete the other filters, and choose the showground symbol (see screenshot below). Or look for the yellow symbol on

The NEW Camps Australia Wide Site Symbols

  It has come in handy – we’ve booked holidays in Coffs Harbour, Sunshine Coast and Surfers.  It’s good because of the symbols – like a playground for the kids, also petrol stations and shopping centres. It’s really good for me, I find it easy and I don’t know how to use maps! The kids are 6 and 10, they look at the pictures and are learning from the symbols and know if it has a playground or toilet.  We save caravan parks in favourites and eliminate them until we find the site we like. You can tell if they have toilets,

Wolvi Grove farm stay

New Listing: Wolvi Grove, Queensland

Who doesn’t love a farm stay? Our newest listing is at Tagigan Road, Wolvi (next door to Cooloola Berries), 28 km north east of Gympie. Owners, Julie and Tony, say their 40 acre working avocado farm has some remnant forest and you might encounter some kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and even koalas. It is also a haven for birdwatchers. Guests must be fully self-contained as there are no facilities – BYO portaloo! An extra bonus comes with Wolvi Grove; not only are you camping beside an avocado orchard, but can walk a few hundred metres with direct access to a farm
