Discover Australia’s holiday park gems

Plan your next family holiday in one of Australia’s many stunning locations.

Here’s a hot holiday tip: Some of the best holiday parks in Australia are situated in locations that offer million-dollar views at an affordable price. With prime beachfront, pristine lakeside views and national parks brimming with wildlife at your doorstep, NRMA holiday parks offer unique family holiday experiences in iconic locations across SA, QLD, SA, NSW and VIC.

They also offer a family break that won’t break the budget, with affordable options to camp, stay in upmarket cabins or park your motorhome or caravan. Many holiday parks offer resort-style facilities including large pools and leisure activities for adults and kids of all ages. 

Excitingly, the NRMA holiday park locations are growing, with new sites in more states for families around Australia to enjoy. With summer just around the corner, we explore six of the best holiday park getaways around Australia to help you get inspired.
