1BIG4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park



Kids and parents alike will be swept away by the ancient beauty of Australia’s Northern Territory – and as the Northern Territory’s most-awarded holiday park, BIG4 MacDonnell Range is the perfect place to set up camp near Alice Springs. Pedal go-karts, a BMX track and jumping pillows are a little adrenaline junkie’s dream come true, while parents will be pleased by a comprehensive gym, reading room and the new camp kitchens, added just this year. The heated pools are complemented by a special toddlers’ pool, and cots and highchairs are available.


2Darwin FreeSpirit Resort



This family-friendly haven is just 15 minutes from Darwin’s CBD, although you might not feel that way upon arrival, surrounded by tropical gardens and palm trees. Scheduled activities for kiddies include all kinds of crafty concoctions, from beading to making ‘spiders’ from chocolate, or if your little adventurers are more inclined toward the outdoors, play a game of lawn bowls or go for gold in the Mini Olympics. Elsewhere on the park grounds are plentiful barbecues, picnic areas, pools and dining.


3BIG4 Howard Springs

Howard Springs


With Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks on its doorstep, BIG4 Howard Springs is packed to the rafters with splash-tastic fun, including three tropical saltwater pools and an all-ages water park. Exclusive to littlies are the jumping pillow and playground, but the whole family will enjoy a hit of squash and leisurely afternoon barbecues on the park grounds. If you’re feeling adventure, a picnic at nearby Berry Springs Nature Park offers clear pools hidden among rainforest that are perfect for swimming.


=4Nitmiluk Gorge Caravan Park



From a landscaped pool with poolside bistro to the Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorges surrounding, families are sure to be sharing the stories of a stay in these ancient landscapes for years to come. A communal laundry, kitchen areas, complimentary Wi-Fi and barbecues are convenient features and welcome retreats after days spent canoeing, hiking or just soaking in the beauty of the region.


=4Hidden Valley Holiday Park



This award-winning Darwin holiday park is surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, conveniently just 10 minutes from the CBD. From modern deluxe villas and open-plan units to ensuite, powered and premium camping sites, you’ll find there’s something for every holidaymaking family here. Take advantage of the on-site tour desk, which can help you book sunset cruises, head on a family fishing trip or take a tour of the famous Kakadu National Park.


5Douglas Daly Tourist Park



Animal lovers rejoice, there are bandicoots, wallabies, quolls and more than 1,000 species of birds calling this family-friendly getaway home. You’ll find it halfway between Darwin and Katherine, boasting hot springs, gorges, bushwalking and fishing aplenty. In particular, a visit to Arches Waterhole and a natural spa are a must, which you’ll find within the park grounds. You’ll also find a barbecue area, tourist information and booking and an on-site cafe serving tasty treats.
