The lowdown: Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park is close to all the action with beautiful villas, ample grassy sites for vans and tents, and is pet friendly. With such wide open spaces, it’s the perfect place to park your Brisbane campervan rental.
Though there’s much to explore outside including Wet N Wild, Movie World, The Outback Spectacular, White Water World and Dreamworld, as well as the heart of Surfer’s Paradise not to far away by car, the park offers plenty of reasons to stay inside: including one of the best resort style pools you’ll find in Queensland with a 1.5 storey waterslide, poolside cabanas, an inflatable screen for movies under the stars, a cool BMX track, tennis court and buggies.
“We’re the only holiday park on the Gold Coast where you can bring your dog, walk to the theme parks, camp by the riverside and see native wildlife including koalas and kangaroos right outside your tent or cabin,” owner Theo Whitmont was quoted as saying in Escape magazine.
Accommodation options range from spacious ensuite and powered riverfront sites, to luxury villas and cabins. The park has a valet parking service for all visitors, including a golf buggy ride to your cabin or van site.
