Winter’s on the way, so hit the road and head north

Noosa beach

With winter fast approaching, the best plan of attack to beat the chill is to head north. While Aussies down south shiver through the coldest months of the year, up north in Queensland the sun is still shining and the ocean waters constantly warm.

Pick up a camper from Brisbane airport and park it at one of these five caravan parks in Queensland for your next holiday.

Noosa Caravan Park
Just under two hours north of Brisbane is the lovely Noosa. Sandy, surf beaches and clear waters await. Park your camper at the Noosa Caravan Park, which is a two minute walk from Noosa River and a 15 minute drive from Noosa Beach. Then Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo is less than an hour away. It also has an outdoor swimming pool with BBQ facilities and a children’s playground.

Mackay Blacks Beach Holiday Park
Ideally positioned on five acres with beachfront views, Mackay Blacks Beach Holiday Park overlooks the beautiful southern islands of the Whitsundays. There are nearly 90 caravan sites available, many with ocean views, a swimming pool and entertainment areas so you can enjoy your holiday nearly 1000km north of Brisbane.

Rainbow Beach Holiday Village
Three hours north of Queensland’s capital, Rainbow Beach Holiday Village sits on the Fraser Coast, just 100m from the beach. The surf club is also located across the road, with many restaurants and cafes nearby. The village has all the conveniences you need – including two BBQ sites, washing up facilities, a convenience store and an onsite service station – but it still has a relaxing atmosphere, which draws holidaymakers back year after year.

Lake Eacham Tourist Park
Set in the heart of the famously beautiful Crater Lakes District, this quiet tourist park is just one kilometre from Lake Eacham’s pristine waters. Just over an hour’s drive from Cairns and 18 hours from Brisbane, Lake Eacham Tourist Park is well worth the distance. Jump in the water whenever you feel like a swim, while the lake’s surrounding beauty, including colourful wildlife and pristine waterfalls, are found at almost every turn.

Gold Coast Tourist Parks Main Beach
Drive an hour south of Brisbane and Surfer’s Paradise awaits! Stay at the Gold Coast Tourist Parks Main Beach, which is just across the road from one of the area’s most beautiful surfing beaches. It hosts a resort-style pool and Tedder Avenue is nearby, with its trendy cafes and restaurants. It’s everything you need for a perfect, sunny holiday away!
