Plan Your Trip

A successful trip requires careful planning. Whether you want to explore the natural splendour of NSW on a caravanning adventure, escape to a secluded camping spot, stay on a beachfront site or just relax with family or friends, you’ll find holiday parks and camping sites to suit.

Family holiday parks have options to suit a range of family budgets. Choose from powered and unpowered camping and caravan sites, safari tents or self-contained cabins all with access to white sandy beaches, rivers and lakes. There are even hideaways surrounded by national parks.

Camping trips create precious memories. Parents love the fact their children are kept happy in holiday parks thanks to amenities and activities that include everything from waterslides and swimming pools to playgrounds, games rooms and cooking classes. There are even special school holiday programs on offer.

Glamping is a next-level way to camp with all the creature comforts of home. Relax on the deck wrapping around your luxury tent and enjoy seeing the stars pin-cushioning the night sky. Many safari tents have queen-size beds, ensuite bathrooms and kitchens. Some glamping experiences even include high-end campsite cuisine.

If you’re travelling by camper trailer, you’ll enjoy the mobile comforts of your mini home. Many caravans and campervans come complete with sleeping, kitchen and dining facilities. Some have a pop-up roof, adding additional sleeping and storage space. Holidaying in an RV is a comfortable way to travel, too.  

Find a pet-friendly holiday park if you want to bring a furry friend. There are now holiday parks that allow pets throughout the State and dotted along the coast, which stretches more than 2,000km. If you’re planning to bring your pet, ask about restrictions – some parks don’t allow dogs during school holidays.
