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!
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. The master plan includes a whole new promenade, entry with public art and gardens, waterplay area, event space and beach access options – and it is all likely to start in March to May 2023. Upgrades are planned for the amphitheatre, carpark as well as renovations for Broome Surf Lifesaving Club. All of this means better
Well done Steve and Mel May from Tin Can Bay Tourist Park in the Gympie Region! They have been awarded Tourist Events Queensland ‘Best of Queensland Experience 2022’. We caught up with the couple at the Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic recently, after they’ve had a very busy winter. The award is presented to Queensland tourism businesses who consistently provide exceptional customer experiences, and are recommended by travellers, so Mel and Steve should be rightly proud! Each time we visit, the team have upgraded the park – with amenities, pool and a fabulous laundry! Their new camp kitchen is beautiful!
Camps Ambassadors Dale and Tracey enjoyed a hot soak in the Northern Territory recently! Bitter Springs is definitely one of our favourite hot springs. Set amongst the palm trees in the Elsey National Park, you hop in the thermal spring creek and float down with the current for about 15 minutes til you get to another set of steps, where you hop out and walk back to the start and do it all again. You can see from their video how glorious the water is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3rL7xBvaZI The crystal clear, 32 degree temperature of the water lets you see freshwater turtles if
This fantastic little town in North West Queensland, has two sites for camping… Julia Creek RV Stop If you’d like to stay at the RV Stop, you must have a fully self-contained RV, no tents. In this shire, that means “built in and/or propriety brand toilets secured in the van” with a black water holding tank or toilet cassette and no portable showers. You’ll need to collect a permit, valid for 96 hours, from the Julia Creek Visitor Information Centre, or from onsite camp hosts in peak season (April to September).

Menindee Lakes Caravan Park, which is located on a Crown land reserve on the eastern shores of Lake Menindee, was brought under the management of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment – Crown Lands in August 2020. The managers have had to make a lot of changes, there is no longer a dump point, cabins, camp kitchen, BBQs, picnic tables or shade! Water is now non potable, and the amenities for people with disabilities are not at the required standard.
CAMPS at Ayers Rock Resort As a caravan park, Ayers Rock Resort at Yulara, NT has all you need. It is pet friendly, has room for Big Rigs, amenities, laundry, camp kitchen, playground, pool and shade of the desert oaks. We loved the hill – where you see “The Rock“, and can toast the excitement of being so close to Uluru and Kata Tjuta. It is pricey, but this is the only option so close to Uluru for camping, and you do want to book in advance. You do have access to the resort restaurants and bars, shops, galleries, information
