This fur seal recently visited BIG4 Iluka on Freycinet Holiday Park and spent the day lazing in the sun. He decided to upgrade into one of the units overnight and gave a guest somewhat of a morning surprise.

New BIG4 kids on the block

With great pleasure, BIG4 would like to introduce two new Holiday Parks to our family.


Set on 8 hectares of tranquil parkland, BIG4 Goondiwindi Tourist Park is your gateway to Queensland and New South Wales. Stroll along the magnificent Macintyre River, go water skiing, or relax in the heated artesian swimming pool and spa.


Close to the Park’s shady sites and BBQ areas is the birdwatching and bushwalking haven of Serpentine Lagoon.




Big on natural attractions, BIG4 Eden Gateway Holiday Park is only a kilometre from the historic whale-watching town of Eden. Here you’ll find cruise boats, boutique shops, harbour side cafés, and some of the Sapphire Coast’s best fishing.


The resort styled Holiday Park features a large pool, a new playground including a giant jumping castle and jumping pillow.


Featured Destination

Discover your piece of Tasmania with BIG4

It’s hard to believe there are so many must-see attractions packed into the tiny island of Tasmania. From picturesque beaches to unique historic towns, it’s all yours to discover with BIG4.


Start your journey at the top of Tasmania in the Tamar Valley region at BIG4 Kelso Sands Holiday Park where you’ll share 15 hectares of beachfront with the local wombats, wallabies and Tasmanian devils. Set up base on a powered site before exploring the nearby Narawntapu National Park or following your nose to the Tamar Valley Lavender House where more than seventy fragrant varieties of lavender flower from September to May.


After savouring the scents of the Tamar Valley, take the scenic route along the northeast coast to the award winning BIG4 St Helens Holiday Park. Nestled in the famous Bay of Fires, guests can enjoy world class fishing from white beaches with deep blue water and rugged granite rocks. Settle in for the night, cook the day’s catch in the fully equipped camp kitchen and appreciate why Lonely Planet named the Bay of Fires the world’s number one beach.


Say your goodbyes to BIG4 St Helens and cruise down the coast to Bicheno, surrounded by some of Australia's most picturesque beaches and tourist attractions such as Diamond Island and Natureworld. If you’re looking for something a little different, BIG4 Bicheno Cabin Park has a range of fully self contained cabins where you can freshen up and enjoy the night.


Just half an hour down the road from Bicheno you’ll find Freycinet National Park where you can explore the magnificent Coles Bay. With more sunny days here than anywhere else in Tasmania, BIG4 Iluka on Freycinet Holiday Park offers a stunning location to explore the natural beauty of the world renowned Wineglass Bay.


Heading further south, venture into the heart of Hobart where you can sample market treats and step back in time exploring the Georgian village of Richmond. Set up base at Hobart Airport Tourist Park or Discovery Holiday Parks – Hobart and soak up the history and magic of Hobart as it was in the 1820’s.


Continue exploring Tasmania’s rich history near the state’s vibrant second city. Just ten minutes from Launceston, Discovery Holiday Parks – Hadspen is perfectly positioned to take in the beautiful colonial architecture, famous art galleries and boutique wineries.


If you can’t ignore the call of the wild any longer, venture north and settle into Discovery Holiday Parks – Cradle Mountain. Set in beautiful grounds, the Park is the perfect spot for sharing stories with friends around the roaring open fire in the communal camp kitchen.


As your journey around Tasmania draws to a close, don’t miss the opportunity to explore Tasmania’s hub to the mainland, Devonport. Whether you decide to stay at Discovery Holiday Parks – Devonport or BIG4 Ulverstone Holiday Park, you’ll be just a short drive away from the ferry terminal and close to the city’s unique boutiques and specialty shops. If shopping’s really your thing, take a half hour drive out of Devonport to check out the Penguin Market, northern Tasmania’s largest market with more than 200 undercover stalls.


Experience the best of the region by staying at BIG4 Holiday Parks. With their beautifully maintained sites and excellent facilities, each Park will place you perfectly to explore this special piece of Australia.
