Weekend Escapes – Queensland edition!

Weekend Escapes – Queensland edition!

Did you know that within just two hours of every Australian city, you can escape into nature with a friend or loved one? With such a short distance of travel time to get to your nature-based destination, camping doesn’t have to require months of preparation, saving up money, or a lot of planning.

A weekend escape could also be the perfect break for someone who needs to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. If you’re struggling to take a few days off from work and the two day weekend isn’t enough time for you to properly escape, then make sure you make use of public holidays! You can leave work on a Friday afternoon with a packed bag and head straight out to your destination.

The modern caravan holiday parks around Australia generally provide a range of options to suit your camping style. From luxurious glamping options to cabins – they truly are the hassle-free getaway option! Many of these holiday parks also offer camping sites, so if pitching your own tent is more your style then this option is available to you for your weekend escape!

Tips for your weekend escapes:

If you’re motivated to plan your own weekend escape, we have a few suggestions for some activities to do on your time away!

  • Get outdoors. Since many of these parks are surrounded by nature, it won’t be hard to find some time in nature and enjoy the peace and quiet.
  • Bring that book you’ve been wanting to read but just haven’t found the time to get to.
  • Without the distractions of television and video games, there is no better time to enjoy a board game than while you’re on a caravan or camping trip! If you don’t have the space for board games, a deck of cards is all you need for hours of entertainment!
  • Get creative! Whether it’s drawing, making craft, photography, or even whipping up a new recipe in the camp kitchen, camping trips offer the perfect opportunity to hone your skills and creativity.
  • Relax with some yoga or meditation to help you relax and rejuvenate
