    Default Where is your favourite caravan park SE QLD or Northern NSW?

    I'm trying to book a holiday for the September school holidays. I think my kids would like to stay in a caravan park (they would like to stay in a tent or a caravan, but I'm thinking a cabin type thing). I want somewhere that will have stuff for the kids to do, but also be a bit relaxing. I'd like to be by the beach, but not essential. Within 2hrs ish drive of Brisbane please. My kids will be 6, 4 and 1.
    I've had a bit of a Google, but there are millions of possibilities, and hard to know where would be best.
    Suggestions please!

    Friends of ours love the big4 holiday park at Hastings point. Across from the beach, it has a fantastic pool with slides etc and a kids club etc. they have apartments, villas, cabins and tent sites.

    Hi there, I would definitely opt for a cabin- we did when our kids were exactly your age- it worked so well, there was even a big covered deck with bbq and a gate- the older ones could play in the playground right next to our cabin. the park also had pool and water park and soooo many organised kids activities, plus full kitchen and foxtel, aircon,so enjoyable for all. we hardly left the park. Anyway, check out Big 4 Parks. We stayed at Harrington Big 4 (may be a little too far for you), but I think there are parks closer to Brisbane. Outstanding value for money and a great family holiday.

    It may be a little bit too far but the blue dolphin park at yamba is awesome right on the river but only 10 minutes into town to the nearest beach. So much for the kids to do. Kids club, bikes to hire, huge pool area with slides, jumping pillow, 2 playgrounds plus inside playground for the little ones and a kids room with pool table arcade games etc

    Thanks guy's! Big 4's seem popular, DH suggested that too. I actually had a look at Hasting's Point, has anyone been to the other caravan park there? It appealed to me as it has these things called Surfari tents, which look like a tent but are actually a cabin, I think the kids would be so into that. And then I saw the Big 4 and I thought we might get caravan park envy. I imagine the kids would be pretty happy with playing at the beach for most of the time, but they love a playground and water play area type thing so maybe they would prefer that.
