Finding the Perfect Holiday Park: 3 Things to Consider

Blog

If you have recently purchased a caravan and you are planning your first trip, you may be looking for the ideal holiday park. Below is a guide to three things you should consider when booking a spot in a holiday park.

Location, Location, Location

When it comes to finding the perfect holiday park, the location should be the first thing on your mind. There are a plethora of holiday parks located across Australia, so you should narrow your options down before you start your search. You should ask yourself what kind of break you want to enjoy. If you like to swim in the sea, you will probably want to find a holiday park which is close to the coast. However, if you want to observe some wildlife, you may be better off looking for a holiday park which is located deep in the Outback. Once you have shortlisted holiday parks in locations which meet your needs, you can go on to consider some other factors.

The Proximity to Local Towns and Cities

Once you have set up camp, you may wish to explore local towns and cities so you can do a spot of shopping or soak up some culture. If this is the case, you should check which towns and cities are within driving distance. Of course, you may be trying to get away from it all, in which case, you may wish to check that you aren't too close to major urban areas. If you are planning to stargaze, you should try to avoid large cities and towns, as they produce a lot of light pollution which will obscure the night sky.

The Range of Facilities on Offer

The facilities on offer can differ significantly between various holiday parks. Some holiday parks feature modern conveniences such as electricity, fresh water, toilets and showers. Family-friendly holiday parks may feature evening entertainment, restaurants and small shops. However, there are some holiday parks which offer a more basic service. In the more basic holiday parks, you will just have access to a pitch where you can park your caravan and not much else. Before booking your place in a holiday park, you should check out the facilities on offer to make sure they match your needs.

The Great Outdoors: Camping

Hi there! My name is Ricky. I grew up in Sydney, so I am a real street kid. My parents used to take us on vacation to other major cities around the world such as Paris, London, and New York. This meant that while I saw a lot of the world, I didn't ever get to experience the Australian Outback. All this changed when I was aged 22. My friend from college invited me on a camping trip. I loved sleeping beneath the stars and hearing the sounds of the wildlife. It was amazing. Since then, I have really got into camping and do it as often as I can. I decided to start this blog to share my passion for camping with others.
