Something for the Adults

It's wine time! BIG4's guide to Australia's best wineries

With more than 60 wine regions scattered across Australia, our country not only has a reputation for producing award-winning wines, but is also one of the few countries that can create every major type of wine. With so many amazing wineries on our doorstep, there has never been a better time to get lost among the vineyards.

BIG4 has put together a guide to enjoying Australia’s best drop.

BIG4 Travel Tip

Forgot your egg rings at home? No stress!

Make rings out of capsicum. Not only are you cutting down on your washing up, but you're also adding vegetables to your meal. You could also use onion rings or cut a circle out of a slice of bread.

If you like the look of this BIG4 Travel Tip, you may want to check out our BIG4 Facebook page, where you will find many more tips just like this and join a community of like-minded people who love to travel the great outdoors.

Tips for entertaining kids during rainy weather

A summer holiday spent camping, basking in the sun and playing beach cricket is one of the best ways to bond as a family. But what happens if the big trip comes around and the weather goes grey? Just because it’s raining outside doesn’t mean the trip is ruined.

Here are some handy tips from BIG4 Holiday Parks to help parents entertain the kids during rainy weather.

BIG4 Parks with Jumping Pillows

We know how much kids love bouncing on the Jumping Pillows when they visit BIG4! So we have taken the time to put together a list of all of the BIG4 Holiday Parks with Jumping Pillows, to make it easier for you to choose your next family holiday.

View the full list of BIG4 Parks with Jumping Pillows.

A road trip activity to keep the kids busy

"Are we there yet?"

Road trips are a wonderful way to explore the country, discover new places, and spend time together as a family. But long haul road trips with kids can be hard work!

To help take some of the stress out of your next family road trip, we have put together a 'Car Bingo' activity sheet.

Disney’s Tinker Bell & the Pirate Fairy Competition

From the world of “Peter Pan” comes “The Pirate Fairy,” a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself. With laughter, heart, magic and thrills, “The Pirate Fairy” sets sail these winter holidays.

To celebrate the release of this Disney movie, in cinemas these winter holidays, we have 25 family passes (family pass admits four - 2 adults and 2 children) to give away. To enter, email us at marketing@BIG4.com.au with a photo taken of the fun you have had on holiday at a BIG4 Holiday Park. Please include your full name, postal address and mobile phone number in the email and the name of the BIG4 Holiday Park the image was taken at.
