Top 10 Caravan Parks in New South Wales

By Brad East

Whether you just bought your first caravan or you’re a seasoned ‘vanner planning your next trip away, here’s our Top 10 Caravan Parks in NSW that MUST be on your to-visit list. 

Say goodbye to the stress of booking flights and hotel rooms, hit the open road on your time, and your schedule, for a holiday full of freedom, fun and adventure!

The real bonus about a caravan holiday is the FREEDOM to explore! You’re not tied to a train line or ‘short walk from public transport’ which means you get to see the best bits of NSW on your own terms. 

So with that in mind, these parks don’t just provide a fancy pool for the kids, where you pull up, plug in, and drive away again a week later. They take you to truly amazing parts of New South Wales, so you can explore the beauty and wonder this state has to offer. 

From beautiful beaches and awe-inspiring coastlines, to tranquil, untouched national parks and countryside, we’re sure you’ll find your new favourite on this list. Buckle up, it’s time to go!

1. NRMA Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park 38 Lake Park Rd, North Narrabeen, NSW Australia 2101

Looking for a tranquil seaside escape without the long ride ahead? Then this is perfect for you.

Tucked peacefully within the Narrabeen area, the NRMA Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park offers powered and unpowered caravan site options from $56 to $85, only 45-minutes away from the busy CBD of Sydney.

Adventure awaits with surfing, kayaking, boating, and plenty of fishing. Take a trip to Narrabeen Markets to pick up some of the freshest produce of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, before coming back to cook them up in the Camp Kitchen, while the sun sets on another memorable day.

The big city of Sydney is still within reach – just hop on the Manly Fast Ferry for a 20-minute ride to Circular Quay. Take the kids out to the SeaLife Aquarium or Taronga zoo for a day. If you’re an empty-nester, take a different route with a luxury lunch cruise around the harbour, sipping a beautiful wine with your significant other. Who knew caravanning could combine the best of both worlds!

2. Reflections Byron Bay Holiday & Caravan Park – 1 Lighthouse Rd, Byron Bay NSW 2481, Australia

Next up for our Top 10 Caravan Parks in NSW, we’re heading north to the coastal paradise of Byron Bay. A mix of alternative, hippie culture and eclectic stores combined with award winning restaurants, sand, sun, and natural beauty.

Byron Bay Holiday & Caravan Park, previously known as Reflections Clarke Beach is located at 1 Lighthouse Rd, Byron Bay, NSW.  Super affordable rates for both powered and non-powered sites, all offering a short walk to Byron Bay beaches and lined with lush greenery. It’s a stunning area to park the van for a few days (or weeks).

While you’re there, take calming walks along the Clarkes Beach, immerse yourself in the world-renowned surfing culture, explore the quirky local markets, and indulge in the salivating cuisines of Byron Bay cafes and restaurants. 

Do not miss the chance to visit Cape Byron Lighthouse, do bird watching and whale watching in the  Arakwal National Park, try the thrilling tandem hang gliding in the Cape Byron State Conservation Area, or scuba dive in one of  the popular diving spots of Julian Rocks Nguthungulli Nature Reserve. With something for everyone, Byron Bay is a top holiday destination for backpackers, adventure-lovers, families, even Hollywood celebrities! 

This park is the perfect place to pull up, settle in, and get ready to explore all that Byron Bay has to offer.

3. NRMA Murramarang Beachfront Holiday Resort – Mill Beach, Banyandah St, South Durras NSW 2536, Australia

Set within the sparkling coastline of South Durras, this park is the ultimate haven for those who appreciate unspoilt natural wilderness and a morning visit from Skippy and his mates. Wildlife is everywhere, with kangaroos often bouncing right through the camp grounds to say hi to their new visitors!

De-stress in the peaceful surroundings of the Murramarang National Park that’s enveloping the resort. Here, you can take refreshing hikes in the Murramarang Walk Trails, find a quiet spot to go fishing, witness the abundant wildlife, or sunbathe on pristine beaches. 

This park has great amenities too, including a camp kitchen, EV charging stations, a playground, pools, and kid-friendly water park area to keep the children busy.

4. BIG4 Easts Beach Holiday Park – 30 Ocean Street, Kiama, NSW, 2533

Big4 Easts Beach in Kiama rates number 1 for families, in our list of Top 10 Caravan Parks in New South Wales. Your kids will love this place and the amenities are exceptional. Goodbye boredom, hello fun!

Situated in Kiama, this picturesque coastal town offers spectacular natural beauty and a charming village atmosphere.  A stone’s throw away from the park is the world’s largest Kiama Blowhole and its more consistent cousin, the Little Blowhole. That’s the first and last time we’ll write blowhole twice in one sentence, but they are definitely worth a visit.

The popular Saddleback Mountain Lookout is about 10 minutes away from Kiama Blowhole and provides a breathtaking view of Cronulla, all the way to Milton.

Make sure to bring your camera for a snap of the renowned geological delight of Cathedral Rocks while taking a peaceful stroll along the scenic Kiama Coastal Walk. 

And after a little local-exploration, return to the park, where you and your family can enjoy a whole host of amenities, including a cafe, Little Monkey’s Play Corner & games room for younger kids, the incredible, fun-filled Sunny’s Aquaventure Park for kids of all ages, two spacious pools, and a big jumping pillow! All ensuring a memorable stay in a lovely spot on the New South Wales coast. It has been a caravanning favourite for years and has a special place on this list.

5. NRMA Jindabyne Holiday Park – 6 Kosciuszko Rd, Jindabyne NSW 2627, Australia

Snowy, icy roads, while towing a heavy caravan are not for beginners. However, if you’re a confident driver who knows how to read the road, this is another must-visit location to include in our top 10 Caravan Parks in New South Wales. 

Trading sunny beaches for snow-filled adventure, Jindabyne is a lovely town with some of the best skiing and snowboarding in NSW. Using your caravan to get there, and stay there, brings a ski-holiday into very affordable territory! Make sure you’re prepared – dressed and geared for the (very) cold, then you can venture out with both Thredbo and Perisher within reach and daily shuttle buses to help you get there.

All done on the slopes? Discover the picturesque landscape of Kosciuszko National Park via the various hiking trails, try out some water sports on Lake Jindabyne, or visit the award-winning Wild Brumbies Distillery to sample delicious schnapps and gin.

When it’s time to return to the park, relax beside the communal campfire while enjoying a barbecue cooked inside the well-equipped camp kitchen. Jindabyne is different, it’s beautiful, and a very welcome change to the usual beachy locations we tend to gravitate to.

6. Reflections Caravan & Holiday Park Seal Rocks – Kinka Road, Seal Rocks NSW 2423

This park has large, flat, powered, grassy sites to give you a little more leg-room when you unpack the van and settle in, and will accommodate the largest of RVs and motorhomes with ease. We’re talking about Reflections Caravan & Holiday Park Seal Rocks. 

They also offer cabins with scenic ocean views if you want to travel with non-caravan friends. This caravan park has complete amenities including kitchen, laundry and a shop for supplies, with a playground, kids activities and covered outdoor eating areas. Nestled between mature, thick green forest on one side with the sweeping views of open beach on the other, it’s perfect for a satisfying and stimulating stay on New South Wales’ mid-north coast.

Seal Rocks is popular with surfers of all sizes and experience. Budding surfers will love Number One beach (seriously, that’s the name) situated right across the road. It’s a 1.3 klm sweeping beach with waves around 1m tall, where you can practice your balance and enjoy a little protection from the ocean. Serious surfers will opt for the gigantic waves of the nearby Boomerang Beach. 

Aside from that, snorkeling is very popular thanks to clear waters and some of the most iconic diving locations in New South Wales, putting Seal Rocks firmly on the map of places to visit.

Enjoy a wide array of outdoor activities while in the park and nearby, from beach fishing, boat fishing at Boat Beach, to lake fishing at Neranie Boat Ramp. Take calming walks in the Treachery Headland and Sugarloaf Lighthouse,  or cycling/mountain biking in the Mining Road Fire Trail.

7. Reflections Holiday & Caravan Park Red Rock – 1 Lawson St, Red Rock NSW 2456, Australia

This pocket of paradise is tucked between a coastline and a river, while being dog-friendly too! We go back to basics at Red Rock – a quiet, tranquil location where the stars light up the night sky in such an awe-inspiring display of nature that we can never experience when living in the city. 

The simplistic coastal lifestyle here is reminiscent of your childhood holidays. The warm invitation for you to explore the stretch of underdeveloped coastline and the crystal clear waters are hard to resist.

Enjoy kayaking, boating, swimming, and picnicking in the Red Rock Beach named after the awesome red rock formations. If you are up for a hike, the nearby Corkwood and Scribbly Gum Walking Track and the remote Station Creek are open for exploration!

For a taste of cultural history, be sure to visit the Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre for its indigenous artifacts and historical treasures. Check out the Wadjar Regional Indigenous Gallery for beautiful arts and crafts to return home with a little local memorabilia.

8. BIG4 Deniliquin Holiday Park – Lot 100 Ochtertyre St, Deniliquin NSW 2710, Australia

When it’s time to head inland, you must pay a visit to Big4 Deniliquin Holiday Park, located right on the banks of the beautiful Edward River. Once  a year around September/October, the town houses the lively and vibrant Play on the Plains Festival, including the Denili Ute Muster, a celebration where thousands of Utes Australia-wide converge for a car show that’s more Aussie than the summernats in canberra!

The calm grassy riverfront with the peaceful, gentle flow of  the Edward River oozes intense relaxation. Go walking in the bush, do some fishing, or lay back and watch the river pass you by. Step up the activity with water-skiing, boating, have fun in the pool and water slides, all without leaving the park! 

Don’t hang around the Caravan park ALL the time though, explore the local attractions like  the  famous Mosaic Ute, beautiful heritage listed Churches, peaceful Waring Gardens and a Giant Kookaburra on the Deniliquin Water Tower Mural. There’s a playground right next door for the kids to spend some energy.

This Caravan Park has a lot going for it, but also serves as a great excuse to head in-land and explore an Aussie country town setting world records for the number of utes in one location, and (more oddly) the number of people wearing blue singlets in one location – demonstrating the character of Deniliquin perfectly.

9. Trial Bay Gaol campground – 63 Trial Bay Gaol Access Rd, Arakoon NSW 2431, Australia

The Trial Bay Gaol Campground itself has basic amenities – toilets, showers, bbq area and a kiosk, but the location, inside the Arakoon National Park along the coastline of South West Rocks has some special extras.

Trial Bay Gaol Beach has clear water perfect for swimming, snorkeling and fishing, with a tour of Trial Bay Gaol being a necessity while you’re there. This heritage listed prison and internment camp has thick stone walls, tiny bare cells and the harsh realities of solitary confinement in the late 1800s to ponder. 

Whales migrate just off the coast each year, so bring your binoculars and try to catch a glimpse of the young calves swimming beside their majestic mothers as they head south in spring. Learn snippets of South West Rocks history via signage along the walking tracks of Monument Hill and Powder Magazine, with local kangaroos providing fantastic photo opportunities. Then, be ready to capture the panoramic views along the Smoky Cape Range walking trail.

For a history-laden getaway that makes you grateful for what you have today, while appreciating pristine beach and coastal views, Trial Bay Gaol Campground is the perfect stop-over for a couple of nights or a weekend.

10. Getaway Tourist Park – 9286 Newell Hwy, Coonabarabran NSW 2357

The final destination on our Top 10 Caravan Parks in New South Wales provides an enchanting night underneath the stars. Buckle up for a trip to Coonabarabran, just under 2 hours north of Dubbo. Getaway Tourist Park will let you experience a view of the miraculous Milky Way like you’ve never experienced before.

Its spacious, drive-through caravan sites can accommodate everything from tents to caravans, RVs and fifth wheelers. The only Caravan Park in Coonabarabran with a swimming pool, you’ll also find open fire and barbecue areas, a playground for youngsters and coin-operated laundry.

Venture out with a Discovery Ranger guided tour in the nearby Warrumbungle National Park. Or take a wander to the Sandstone Caves Walking and TrackMount Exmouth Walking Track.

Have you seen Australia’s biggest telescope? Do you want to? You’re already in Coonabarabran, so you have to visit the Anglo Australia Visitors Gallery of the Siding Spring Observatory to see the telescope and learn about the astronomical wonders of the sky.
