SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Marion Holiday Park

BIG4 Marion Holiday Park:  Recently revamped, the park offers a range of accommodation to suit everyone, from camping and caravanning to deluxe poolside apartments.  Set amongst beautiful 200 year old red river gums, peaceful Sturt Creek and Warriparinga Wetlands, the Marion Holiday Park is a true taste of the country in suburban Adelaide – located only 12km from the CBD, and close to great beaches and the McLaren Vale.  We love the the new 45 metre lagoon pool and the water park!

Hot tip:  pack a picnic and head to nearby Seacliff beach to watch a glorious sunset.

BIG4 Adelaide Shores Caravan Park:  This park ticks all of the boxes – a brilliant location, excellent facilities and a wide range of accommodation options.  The park is situated at West Beach, a drive from the airport, the shopping mecca Harbour Town and beautiful Glenelg.  You will also find a brilliant skate park, golf courses, a boat haven, mini golf and the awesome new Mega Adventure climbing centre nearby.   Guests can choose from nine cabin categories, or powered sites.  We love the beachfront access, the new lagoon swimming pool and the splash zone.

Hot tip:  Cafe Neptune, located on the park’s grounds and open to the general public, is a brilliant place to go with small children.  The cafe has indoor and covered outdoor dining, a shaded and fenced playground, plus a play area for kids with a kitchen, toys and books!

BIG4 Renmark Riverfront: Thanks to its location on the banks of the River Murray, this pretty park is an excellent choice for water skiing, boating and relaxation.  Enjoy the day spa and take a swim in the tree-lined pool.  The kids will love the splash park, games room, indoor play land, jumping pillow and pedal bikes.  We love the riverfront campsites and revamped camp kitchen.

Hot tip: jump aboard the courtesy bus and head to town for a delicious pub meal!

QUEENSLAND

 

BIG4 Cairns Coconut Resort:  This multi-award winning holiday park is a firm favourite with many Aussie families.  Set amongst 28 acres of lush tropical gardens, guests can enjoy the epic splash waterpark and the large sun lagoon pool.  Challenge your family members to a couple of rounds of mini golf and test your team work with the awesome coconut crab seven person bike!  The kids will also love the jumping pillow and fully interactive playground.  The Cairns Coconut Resort is located seven minutes by car to the sights and delights of central Cairns, plus the park offers a minibus service.  We love the Sun Lagoon 3 bedroom Condo – enjoy a bbq on your very own verandah area whilst enjoying the views of the lagoon.

Hot tip:  Dine on the region’s delicious seafood at the nearby Southside Fish Bar!

BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort:  Parks don’t come better than this!  Enjoy a massage by the enormous, palm-fringed pool whilst the kids have a ball doing scavenger hunts, beading classes, colouring competitions and face painting.  The whole family can take in a film under the stars in the outdoor cinema, before retiring to your powered site or beautifully appointed cabin.  We love the mini golf course and waterslides.

Hot tip: be sure to go for a bush walk in stunning Conway National Park

NEW SOUTH WALES

BIG4 Easts Beach Holiday Park Kiama:  An easy two hour drive south of Sydney, the Easts Beach Holiday Park is a brilliant family holiday destination.  Nestled in a valley with a mountain backdrop and the beach right out the front, the park is quiet and relaxing.  It boasts a beautiful large pool and waterfall, with a toddler’s wading pool next to it, a massage studio, a cafe, a playground and jumping pillow.  We love absolute beachfront villas where you can enjoy breakfast on your own balcony with views of the sea and sand.

BIG4 North Star Holiday Resort Hastings Point: A brilliant holiday destination at any time of the year, the North Star Holiday Resort is packed with cool things to see and do.  Set amongst 10 hectares of lush tropical gardens, the park is home to a fully supervised indoor play area, a day spa, three pools (two are heated for year-round swimming) and a cool water park.  The location is superb – close to the beach, surrounded by four world heritage national parks and an easy drive to either Byron Bay or the Gold Coast for great dining, a spot of shopping and taking in the sights.  We love the choice of accommodation, especially the luxurious villas.

Hot tip:  Drive 30 minutes north to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary for a fantastic family day out.  Go for a spin on the Segway Safari Tour and don’t miss the Free Flight Bird Show!
