A review from a recent camper:

“Love love love this place! We rarely go away but going to Narabeen is a massive highlight for us and this place has excellent facilities. We have camped here a few times and it’s amazing for kids. The splash park is really fun and my Son also loves the dry park. The location is perfect too as the lake is shady and beautiful just out the front.”

2. First Sun Holiday Park Byron Bay (NSW)

First Sun Holiday Park Byron Bay

Fancy a camping ground where Byron beach is located right outside your doorstep? On offer are powered campervan sites cost $62.67 per night and come with free wifi and mostly a concrete slab for the van to sit on.

The park features lush surrounds, barbecues, picnic areas, two kitchens and 24 hour security. Each Individual site has 15amp protected power supply and town water. You can also choose to upgrade your site to a waterfront one to make the most of the beautiful Byron Beaches.

First Sun Holiday Park is located about 1 hour and 20 minutes south of Gold Coast, QLD by car. The Byron Bay township surrounds the campground making it handy to get food from the Aldi nearby or go to the local Pub for a drink. In addition to this there is direct beach access, local markets, local music festivals such as the famous Bluesfest and much more.

A review from a recent camper:

“So if you can book site 72 (RV’s, caravans). Beachfront right on the far corner so on one side nothing but grass then the long beach views. Direct access right from the park to the beach. Double slab plus room for car is so good. Amenities excellent and clean. But best of all this is RIGHT in town, one of the best beach towns in the country. You are paying for location you won’t need to use your car once here. Cabins look great too balconies with bbq on deck and beach views.”

3. Lorne Foreshore Caravan Park (VIC)

Lorne Foreshore Caravan Park

This Campground actually comprises of 5 smaller campgrounds-Erskine River, Kia Ora, Ocean Road, Top Bank and Queens Park so that you can pick the exact campground that suits you best. They have prices from $41 per night for a powered site which is pretty cheap!

Our favourite site is the Erskine River Park which is arguably the most scenic park being along the river that leads to the ocean (as seen in the picture on the right). This park features power, water, kitchen and an amenity block.

If you don’t mind being a little bit further from the beach but love a view then the Queens Park site is a great option, featuring what the Erskine Park has but also with a playground, and undercover electric BBQ.

The campgrounds are situated along the great ocean road 2 hours West of Melbourne. The campgrounds are walking distance from pristine beaches, cafes, shops and a supermarket. There are plenty of things to do in Lorne all year around, including sculpture shows and running festivals, view this list to see what is on.

A review from a recent camper:

“Really good caravan park. We stayed on the Erskine part and the kitchen was well stocked with two fridges available. Amenities for male, female and family (with shower and bath). All was really clean and well maintained. Easy walk into Lorne or the beach. It also has the Foodworks right across the road which is super convenient. Would stay there again.”

4. Quobba Station (WA)

Quobba Station, Red Bluff

Previous campgrounds too mainstream? Quobba Station is more off the grid and isolated for the more adventurous camper. Powered sites or the unpowered waterfront site option both cost $22 per person which is a bargain considering the rare opportunity to have to much space around you while camping.

This campground prides itself on its’ ocean views, abundant marine life and turquoise water. The station has an impressive list of wildlife you could potentially see including turtles, humpback whales, manta rays, goannas, kangaroos, echidnas and more.

The best place to go with your campervan at Quobba Station is Red Bluff. This part of the property is where the desert meets the sea and there you can go surfing, fishing, diving, stargazing,  see a spectacular sunsets, watch whales and turtles in their correct season or just chill out by the camp fire.

To get to the Campgrounds you need to travel 10 hours North of Perth which is perfect if you are one for enjoying a road trip down the highway. At this campground you will get the best of both worlds as you feel very far away from the city and fully immersed into nature but also get to have some of the comforts of home at the Red Bluff store which sells basic food and camping supplies.

A review from a recent camper:

“What a beautiful and refreshing spot to stay. We camped with the beach view and it was stunning! The bathrooms were clean and everything was easily accessible. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Loved all the helpful hints and ideas for visits along the coastline.”

5. Sea Vu Robe Caravan Park (SA)

Sea Vu Robe Caravan Park

They say pictures speak louder than words and this campground looks like a great holiday destination. Adopting a close community feel of the vans and inviting nearby ocean in the background. Prices range from $38 in the low season to $67 in the peak season.

The Sea Vu campgrounds have multiple great benefits apart from the view. All sites are powered with access to kitchens and laundry however, I believe their biggest draw card is that they are pet friendly so you can bring your furry friends along! In addition to this they also have a large dining area, TV, multiple gas BBQs, disabled and family facilities, security boomgates, fenced playground, free wifi, fish cleaning area and paddle board hire.

Sea Vu Robe is 3 hours and 42 minutes south of Adelaide by car and positioned on the beautiful South Australian Limestone Coast. The township of Robe has everything you will need on your stay from clothing shops to ice cream shops and everything in between. Robe is known for historical buildings, ocean, fishing fleets and lakes.

A review from a recent camper:

“So amazing!!! Amazing views, we got a spot to pitch out tent that overlooked the beach. HOW RELAXING!!! we were lucky that it wasn’t too windy the weekend we were there. Only a stone’s throw to the main Street, and also accessible to the beach and trail walk to long beach. I highly recommend this place! Oh the facilities were very clean too!”
