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!

This gorgeous beachside location on the New South Wales south coast has been reopened as Beachside Ulladulla Holiday Park after the long closure of Beach Haven.

Who doesn’t love brand new amenities of course, and friendly helpful managers to welcome you. As the park is new, it is being upgraded over time and will include a swimming pool in the future.
