1NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Resort

Gold Coast


With the attractions of the Gold Coast on its doorstep, you might think this holiday park would go easy on the family fun on site. But you would be wrong. Go karts, a tennis court, an outdoor cinema and mini-golf are just a few of the activities for families to enjoy here, not to mention an outdoor gym and complimentary Wi-Fi for mum and dad. A heated spa is the perfect place to recover after action-filled days at one of the nearby theme parks, and you’ll find everything from powered tent sites to riverside villas for accommodation.


2BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort

Airlie Beach


This tropical paradise in Airlie Beach has long been a favourite for holidaying families, and we are not surprised to see it once again earn a place among our top holiday resorts for 2018. It boasts its very own animal park, complete with adorable calves, goats and chickens that will enchant little animal lovers. When they tire of that, head to park’s great pool, where there are shallow areas with mushroom fountains for toddlers, and thrilling water slides for the whole family. You can also hit a round of mini-golf for some healthy competition. There are powered sites, three-bedroom cabins and everything in between at this amazing park.


3BIG4 Ingenia Holidays Cairns Coconut



Just seven minutes by car from the city centre, this pet-friendly holiday park in tropical Cairns has a range of accommodation to fit every budget. You’ll find a ball court, mini golf course and even spot Nemo in its large water park, while a kiosk and restaurant make on-site dining easy, if you’re not up to cooking yourself in one of the camp kitchens or barbecues. If the pool and water slides don’t tickle your fancy, check out the nearby Cairns Aquarium or go on a reef cruise. If lush landscapes are more your thing, see the rainforest from above from the nearby Skyrail Cableway.


4BIG4 Gold Coast



You’ll find this holiday park just across the road from Movie World and Wet’n’Wild, making it the closest caravan park to the Gold Coast theme parks. You are guaranteed to find accommodation to suit your family with options ranging from camping sites to cosy family cabins to five-star villas – there’s even pet-friendly accommodation! Even though most of your time will most likely be spent at the theme parks, the holiday park also offers a pool, water slide, BMX track and six hectares of grassland to run around in. Parents will love the poolside service from the licensed family restaurant.
