The lowdown: Pick up your Gold Coast campervan rental and head south for a leisurely one hour cruise to the peaceful coastal village of Lake Ainsworth, between Ballina and Byron Bay. This venue is home to some awesome scenery and great surf. The award-winning BIG4 Lake Ainsworth Holiday Park is set among the tea-trees alongside the lake and the nearby surfing opportunities are world-class and known for its right-hand point break. The point break is beautiful, but powerful and dotted with local surfers competing for a wave. Although it’s not a break for those starting out, the beach is a hotspot for spectators. Set up base at BIG4 Lake Ainsworth Holiday Park in options ranging from deluxe villas to unpowered campsites. If surfing isn’t your thing, grab some friends or friendly neighbours for a game of beach cricket, 10-pin bowling or enjoy a lazy day with a fishing line at the lake just metres away from the park. For your camper there’s a range of options for both powered and unpowered slab and grass sites. Weather permitting you can enjoy an outdoor movie in the park, there are barbecue facilities, laundry, camp kitchen and TV and video room.
