Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean you cant enjoy yourself. A winter caravan trip is every bit as special as you don’t have the heat of summer, but rather can enjoy the heat of a campfire instead. Caravan park and camping fees are also generally cheaper and tourist prices in retail stores fall in popular towns.
Here are three interstate destinations to consider if you’re planning to get on the road to enjoy the cooler months.
The Opal Inn Caravan Park is a popular place to stay for caravanners and campers who visit Coober Pedy, in the heart of outback South Australia. It offers a mix of motel room options and a caravan park with powered sites and grassy camping areas.
Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula is a popular holiday town. The BIG4 Beacon Resort is surrounded by a national marine park and is the ideal base to explore the nearby townships. Try Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale, local wineries, bike trails, the Sea Road Ferry and the Great Ocean Road.
The camping ground offers an indoor heated pool, indoor adventure playground and a children’s activity program. While the children are entertained, adults can relax with a yoga class or treat themselves to a massage or beauty treatment at the onsite Mud Day Spa.
Accommodation ranges from grassy sites for camping or caravans, through to two and three-bedroom villas and cabins.
Whale season arrives on the west coast with the winter months and runs through to the end of October. Albany is one of the great places to catch the humpbacks cruising by during their annual migration.
Albany Holiday Park is a great site to park your wheels and set up camp. After a day of touring the region and watching whales, you rest in a rustic little shed fitted out with a lounge area, TV, pool table and a wood-fire heater. The outdoor activities include basketball and volleyball facilities, a large playground and park area, and pet alpacas you can feed and pat.
