In this 132-page annual, we reveal the winners of our Readers’ Choice Top 10 Holiday Parks Awards. These awards not only recognise the best holiday parks in all states and the Northern Territory for families, but also serve as the ultimate guide for holidaymakers for the coming year.
“Caravan and camping holidays are on the up and up with more international visitors choosing to rough it than ever – a seven per cent increase since 2018 – and Australians are continuing to hit the road with glee,” says Caravan & Camping with Kids editor, Natarsha Brown.
“The holiday park industry is constantly evolving and it’s more important than ever to be giving Australian families the best advice we possibly can, so they can plan the perfect holiday for them.”
We’d like to offer our congratulations to all of our deserving winners this year.
The Readers’ Choice Top 10 Holiday Parks of 2019 are divided into seven categories:
- New South Wales
- South Australia
- Western Australia
- Northern Territory
