Why Caravan Parks Are Perfect for Large Groups

It can be challenging trying to accommodate a large group on holiday, particularly one including small children. There are surprisingly few rental properties with more than 8 bedrooms, and you may not be such a close group that sharing a kitchen and living space is desirable anyway. Whether you are going away with your extended family, a mothers' group or old friends, here are some reasons why a caravan park may be your best solution.


Up and down the Australian coast, you will find caravan parks right on the beach front. They occupy the very best spots in all the small local towns. You will also find caravan parks within the boundaries or at the gateways of many Australian national parks. You needn't be taking a coast or country holiday either. There are even caravan parks within 10 kilometres of the hearts of Canberra, Sydney and other state capitals.

Group facilities

When staying at a caravan park, your group can book adjoining cabins and enjoy the use of communal BBQs and camp kitchens. Explain when making your booking that you are travelling as a group and the park manager can advise you on the best area of the park in which to be together. If you have children with you, you can gather on one cabin's balcony or at the central BBQ area and still be within earshot after the kids are in bed.

Multiple accommodation options

A caravan park will usually offer cabins with different numbers of bedrooms and varying layouts, able to accommodate families of all sizes. If some of your group love to sleep under canvas they can book a powered or even an en-suite tent site near the cabins.


A Caravan Park holiday is an economical choice, much cheaper than a resort or hotel, but offering just as much in comfort and facilities. Those in your group on a very tight budget can choose to camp in tents and not miss out on the shared break. Prices can rise higher during the summer school holidays, but travelling in off-peak times is especially wallet-friendly.

Easy catering

Being able to cook together and have a big BBQ, order in local take-away or prepare separate meals in your own cabins gives great flexibility. This is perfect if any of the group like to eat at different times or have special dietary requirements as they can suit themselves without impacting the others.

With so many caravan parks across the country, your group is sure to find one that meets your needs. Learn more about your options by contacting resources like Alpha Accommodation Centre Pty Ltd.
