Australian food bloggers create healthier style of camp cooking

While the sausage sizzle is a family favourite, BIG4 challenged bloggers Christie from Fig & Cherry and Sheryl from One Bite More to explore some healthier camp meal alternatives using BIG4 park facilities.


Hosted at BIG4 Easts Beach Holiday Park, the challenge resulted in mouth-watering Cajun Chicken with Grilled Vegetables and Polenta as well as Healthy Chicken Sausage Rolls and Sweet Potato Oven Chips. For full recipes on these healthy camp meals, visit BIG4’s Blog.


Pirates and the high seas at BIG4 Capricorn Palms

Ahoy me hearty! There be a new Pirate Playground in BIG4 Capricorn Palms. Situated along the Capricorn Coast of sunny Queensland, the Park is undergoing some exciting new developments.

In addition to the already completed playground, there is a new swimming pool with waterslide currently under construction. This means the family are set to discover all the thrills of being at high sea when next staying at BIG4 Capricorn Palms Holiday Park.


More historic charm for Taunton Farm Holiday Park

Nestled in the famous Margaret River region, Taunton Farm Holiday Park has reconnected with the area's historical roots, acquiring two 90 year old buildings.

The school (circa 1924) and church (circa 1926) are iconic pieces of local history and are planned to be used as a unique function centre. So look no further for that special touch in weddings or private functions, Taunton Farm Holiday Park has it covered.

Winter bliss on the North Coast of NSW

More than just a summer playground, The Legendary Pacific Coast transforms into a winter wonderland in the cooler months with something to keep the whole family happy. Grab a thermos of hot chocolate, rug up the kids and set off on a North Coast New South Wales adventure to banish the winter blues.


With more than 20 BIG4 Holiday Parks located along the way, there’s always a cosy cabin to call your own after a long day of exploring the hidden gems of North Coast New South Wales.


Dive into your trip at BIG4 Tweed Billabong Holiday Park, where you can enjoy the water all year round in the heated pool after a stroll along the Burleigh Heads walk. No matter the weather, the kids can also have a blast in the undercover, underwater themed Coral Cove playroom while Mum and Dad enjoy a hot cuppa.


The kids are in for more adventure as you head down the coast to BIG4 Saltwater @ Yamba Holiday Park where the kids club is in full swing every school holidays with face painting, craft days and treasure hunts for children.


For adults, enjoy a relaxing massage at BIG4 Emerald Beach Holiday Park’s onsite Tranquillity Centre, a great way to recharge your batteries before visiting the seals and dolphins at the nearby Coffs Harbour Pet Porpoise Pool.


Settle into BIG4 Nambucca Holiday Park for a spot of fishing straight off the park, or drive a short distance to the V-Wall and see the beautifully hand painted art. You can even paint a rock together before filling hungry tummies at one of the many popular Nambucca restaurants then returning to the park for a dip in the heated pool.


Warm up and work out with one of the magical bush walks near BIG4 South West Rocks. Before retreating to your cosy cabin for the night, cook up a storm in either the fully equipped cabin or camp kitchen whilst you play or relax in the heated spa.


For a bit of down time, settle in at Sundowner Tiona Tourist Park and watch the unbelievable sunsets that set over Wallis Lake in winter then make your way to BIG4 Karuah Jetty and enjoy a relaxed stroll through the 28 acre park or explore nearby Port Stephens.


Warm up again at BIG4 Soldiers Point Holiday Park in the park’s heated pool with tipping buckets and water squirting snakes but for a daring real wildlife encounter, you can feed the sharks and rays only a short drive away at the Australian Shark and Ray centre.


If you are looking for a family winter adventure, then NRMA Ocean Beach Holiday Park’s pirates and princesses themed June could just be the answer. Sit back with a hot cuppa, watch the kids play and plan your next holiday knowing that whatever the season, you’ll always have a ball with BIG4.
