Holiday parks give you the best of both worlds — comforts like toilets, showers and sinks but still the feeling of immersing yourself in nature. And fortunately for those looking for a holiday park in Victoria, they’re spoilt for choice.
From holiday parks with resort-style pools and spas to others on the edge of lakes and rivers, letting you drift off to sleep to the relaxing sound of lapping water, these are some of the best holiday parks you can currently book in Victoria.
Yarra Valley Park Lane
Name your type of stay, and chances are Yarra Valley Park Lane’s got it. The park has studios, cabins, glamping pods and caravan and camping spots. The park also has tennis courts, a giant jumping pad and a pool with a nearby barbecue area and camp kitchen. And when you’re finally ready to leave, you’ll find plenty of walking trails and creeks to explore.
Cobram Resort is an easy choice if you want to spend your holiday exploring the Murray River. It’s a conveniently located base for when you visit the region’s wineries, fishing spots and historic homes. The park has caravan and motorhome sites, cabins and apartments, as well as a pool, barbecue facilities and even a gym.
Echuca Holiday Park
Another Murray River option is Echuca Holiday Park, which is within walking distance of the port, where you can take a cruise on a historic paddle steamer or dine at your choice of several restaurants. Within the park, you’ll also find a boat ramp that leads directly into the river. And, if you want to bring your cat or dog on your trip with you, you can – the park has pet-friendly sites, too.
Bright Holiday Park
Bright Holiday Park has not only a pool but a spa, too. It’s also got pet-friendly camping, mini golf and year-round campfires where you can roast marshmallows while you share spooky tales. Book a cabin or villa, caravan site or camping site, which comes pet-friendly, too. Near the park are bushwalking and hiking, watersports and, for the kids, waterpark Bright Splash Park.
Discovery Parks Lake Hume
Discovery Parks Lake Hume is a resort-style holiday park just over three hours from Melbourne and Canberra. Swim, fish or hire a boat at the lake. Or enjoy the on-site pool and tennis court. You can see learn about Victoria’s local history at See The Man From Snowy River Museum in nearby Corryong and gold rush town Beechworth. Ned Kelly’s last stand in Glenrowan isn’t far, either.
