Gone are the days of stuffing everything but the kitchen sink into the back of the car, hitting the road and finding yourself grateful for a campsite with nothing but a basic amenities block and a nice view, if you’re lucky.
Now, holiday parks include state-of-the-art entertainment hubs where families bond over brekky in outdoor dining facilities that would put a restaurant kitchen to shame. They’re where empty nesters meet to share their stories of months on the road, and where couples come to escape the hubbub of everyday life.
Central to this change is BIG4 Holiday Parks, which has been helping Australian families enjoy a great Australian break since 1979. And now, with more than 180 locations around the country, BIG4 is inspiring people to experience holiday parks in a new way.
Wine lovers will welcome the opportunity to wander through gorgeous wineries in the Adelaide Hills, just a hop, skip and a jump away from Hahndorf Resort Tourist Park. It’s just one of many BIG4 parks that you’ll find within arm’s reach of an award-winning wine region.
Others might be more comfortable in the high-ceilinged, multi-bedroom cottages in The Whitsundays, complete with air-conditioning and a minibar ready to be filled with a bottle of bubbly.

For those who have kids or grandkids in tow, the BIG4 parks with onsite water parks – some of the biggest of their kind – will get the little ones excited. These combine with the likes of inflatable jumping cushions and games rooms that will tire out even the most energetic of kids.
