Relaxing beachfront caravan parks

Parking your caravan or RV at a beach location for a holiday is still one of life’s great pleasures.

Australia is almost unique in the world for the opportunity it provides for holidaymakers to enjoy a relatively low-cost holiday by the beach in a caravan park or camping ground. Here are four Queensland beachfront caravan parks to consider the next time you’re looking to get away.

Golden Beach

Golden Beach Holiday Park at Caloundra offers special sites for seriously sized caravans and RVs over eight metres and is also pet-friendly. With just a 100 metre walk to the beach and a salt water pool on site, this is a great choice for families. It is only a short drive to all Sunshine Coast and hinterland attractions.

Bargara Beach

Bargara Beach Caravan Park is ideal for day trips to nearby Lady Elliot Island and Lady Musgrave Island. A must-see is Mon Repos, the largest Loggerhead Turtle nesting site on the East Coast. This park has all the key amenities and is in close proximity to the surf club. Pets are also welcome.

Fraser Coast

The Fraser Coast Top Tourist Park is just a few minutes walk to the beach in Hervey Bay. It is a great option for those travelling in their caravan with pets. The site offers a games room with pool table, pool and spa, BBQ areas and camp kitchen with a pizza oven.

Maroochydore Beach

The Maroochydore Beach Holiday Park is located right on the beachfront at Maroochydore’s patrolled surf beach. The beach offers great surfing, while the waters of the Maroochy River estuary are simply perfect for young swimmers, boaters, water skiers and fishers. Families will love the abundance of parks, bbq and picnic facilities in the local vicinity. The park is located next to one of the Sunshine Coast’s largest surf clubs, so you can drop in for a hearty meal or a drink anytime.
