THERE’S no better way to splash out over summer on your next road trip than by parking your campervan rental at a Big4 Park – especially one with a Splash Park!

Holiday caravan park chain Big4 has plenty of these water wonders around Australia to pick from, including Big4 Cairns Coconut Holiday Resort in Queensland, Beachlands Holiday Park in Western Australia and BIG4 Saltwater @ Yamba Holiday Park in New South Wales.

While the weather’s chillier down south, Victoria does get some serious heat from late December through to early April and the state now has a new water world in the neighborhood. Those who hit the road in their Melbourne campervan hire and arrive at BIG4 Swan Hill about four hours later will have a beaut way to cool off thanks to the opening of a new $800,000 Splash Park. The zero-depth multi-level aquatic play area is ramping up the family fun-o-meter with three water slides, an 8.5-metre super splash tipping bucket, spray cannons, interactive ground sprays, and play equipment to keep kids splashing about for hours on end. The complex also has protected toddlers’ areas outside of the range of spray cannons and a soft fall surface.

Clare O’Bryan, owner of BIG4 Swan Hill, is excited about what the Splash Park brings to the Murray River town for holidayers.

“We’re very excited to have the opportunity to bring something totally different to Swan Hill. Our guests, as well as a lot of Swan Hill locals are always on the lookout for activities to keep the kids entertained, especially over the school holidays,” says Clare. “Ours will be one of the first water parks in a holiday park in Victoria and we’re expecting to see an increase of at least 20 percent in bookings once it opens. We’re hoping to bring more visitors to Swan Hill and encourage them to stay longer to enjoy our new Splash Park and all our other fun, family-friendly facilities while they explore the region.”

In addition to the Splash Park, BIG4 Swan Hill offers a relaxed family friendly environment with facilities including a giant jumping pillow, playground, pool, games room, purpose built bike track, beach volleyball court and go-kart hire.
