Gone are the days when a camping trip meant that the creature comforts had to be left at home. Today’s caravan holiday parks are fast becoming the number one holiday hotspot for the discerning traveller with over 7 million Australians visiting a caravan holiday park in the last two years and another 9.3 million intending to holiday in the Caravanning & Holiday Parks Industry in the next 2 years.
Whether you are looking to camp out under the stars, relax in a fully equipped luxury villa with Australia’s best vistas, enjoy a professional massage or even have their hair done, the scale of modern holiday caravan parks means that this is all possible with more facilities on offer than ever before.
Many modern holiday caravan parks include everything from eco friendly luxury safari tents, private ensuite caravan sites, lavish cabins that feature flat screen televisions, fire places and even Jacuzzi’s as well as cutting edge facilities such as heated swimming pools, child care centres and day spas.
With many Australians having less time to explore the great outdoors, the option to be able to jump in the car and head to a caravan holiday park without having to worry about camping equipment is a big draw card.
Of course there are still a lot of people who like to camp the old fashioned way, but without a doubt, walk-in, walk-out accommodation is fast becoming a favourite by many moms, especially as it allows for all of the fun of a camping holiday, without all the fun of packing!
