While offering a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, many of today’s caravan holiday parks provide top-of-the-line cabins to cater for the growing demand of holiday makers who still want to experience a caravanning and camping lifestyle.
According to Caravan, RV & Accommodation Industry of Australia (CRVA) Chief Executive Stuart Lamont, Australians are continually surprised by how far the industry has come, with many modern caravan holiday park facilities often surpassing the highest of expectations.
“Over the past several years, the majority of Australia’s caravan holiday parks have undergone major changes, with many cabins in particular evolving from basic accommodation to luxurious lodgings offering all the comforts of a home-away-from-home.”
“More and more couples are discovering that cabin accommodation in caravan holiday parks is fast becoming one of the most spacious, comfortable, value for money getaways, not to mention romantic holidays available in today’s market.”
Wrap around balconies, spa baths, plasma TVs with DVD players, air conditioning and all the modern conveniences of home e.g. microwaves, dishwashers and laundries, are common features of many modern caravan holiday park cabins.
“Also, don’t forget that all of these comforts are found on some of Australia’s most scenic locations ranging from beachfront to Alpine locations,” said Mr Lamont.
