Many visitors to Barmera in the Riverland go there for the freshwater Lake Bonney which covers an area of around 1700 hectares. People are drawn there as you’d expect for water sports, and boating but also for one unique feature…the dead trees.
We’re FREE! Well sort of. Caravan and camping is back on in South Australia for those of us living in the state, and caravan parks are putting out the welcome signs and taking bookings. Now it’s just a matter of deciding where to go first. Unfortunately there may not be many shops or businesses open when you get to your destination so it will pay to go for a walk, make a phone call or check social media or just take a drive by to see for yourself. Some cafés and restaurants with outdoor dining may be open and food and beverage takeaways are always a possibility so it’s time to start spreading the money around again and supporting our regions.
We found some absolute gems of caravan parks in Western Australia, you know the ones that make you gasp when you see the pool, the amenities, the location, location, location! There are some pretty stunning caravan parks out there and the ones that topped my list made it for different reasons. For some it’s the proximity to a beach, walk over a dune and there you are, others had unbelievable pools, kitchens, or grounds that had you asking “is this really a caravan park?’’ Sometimes it’s because of their location to everything you need, a one stop shop if you like where everything needed for a great stay is within walking distance. So from South to North of the state, here are my favourites.
