Easter is a great time to get away with the family for a bit. Take your caravan and SUV to one of these five amazing destinations. You won’t be disappointed.
New South Wales: Yamba Blue Dolphin Park
At over three hours’ drive from Brisbane and nearly eight hours from Sydney, a break at the Blue Dolphin in Yamba from a city location rewards you with a stunningly picturesque coastal road trip on the way to and from the caravan park itself.
If the length of the journey plants any doubt in your mind, that will soon be erased upon arrival.
Yamba is probably still best known to most Australians as a fishing village, and while it’s gotten busier as the reputation of the Blue Dolphin has grown, and the village itself has become a hot surfing spot, it’s still a great place to visit.
The caravan park site encompasses 15 acres of beautiful tropical gardens. Nearby are seven surfing beaches – and eleven beaches in total – a golf course, two pubs, two clubs, and the popular Yamba lighthouse. The footpaths around the estuary of the Clarence River offer breath taking views, too.
Western Australia: Esperance Seafront Caravan Park
An eight-hour cross-country drive from Perth, and reachable from southwest WA, a stay at this caravan park allows you to access some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
All of the pitches at the park offer ocean views, so even just coming here, parking up, and looking out the window is worth the trip!
The caravan park itself is just 50m from a safe swimming beach, while surfing and scuba diving are also popular among both the local population and tourists.
If you simply want to relax and hang out there’s plenty to do in Esperance, with five national parks just a short distance away. The most popular of these is the Cape Le Grand park, which has a number of beautiful white sand beaches within its borders.
Queensland: Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort
On the outskirts of Cairns city centre, this caravan park has something for everyone.
If you’re a parent looking to keep young children occupied, there are activities and clubs aplenty for all ages and interests, from organised sports like tennis and mini-golf to adventure playgrounds for those who just want to run around.
If those activities aren’t enough, the resort is set in 28 acres of stunning grounds, incorporating rainforest areas, tropical gardens and grasslands. Outside of the park, the city centre is seven minutes away. Beautiful beaches, numerous national parks and forest reserves are also easily within an hour’s drive.
Victoria: Anglesea Beachfront Caravan Park
A couple of hours’ drive from the centre of Melbourne, this caravan park is a wonderful place to visit either as your primary vacation destination or as a stop-off while driving the Great Ocean Road over the Easter break.
Anglesea itself is a small town but there’s plenty to do. The local golf course is particularly popular and is well known for its grey kangaroo population.
The park also offers access to miles of bush walking and mountain biking, as well as beaches for those looking for a completely relaxed break.
South Australia: Tanunda Caravan and Tourist Park, Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley region is world famous for its wines.
However, if you ever thought this region only had visits to the local vineyards and wineries to offer, you’d be hugely mistaken!
A stay at the Tanunda Caravan and Tourist Park allows you to enjoy so much more.
Just an hour outside of Adelaide, there are miles of walking and mountain bike routes to take in, as well as old churches and historical buildings to visit and spend time in.
The local farmers market is great for trying local produce, while the town itself maintains its historic German heritage and features.
