Stay At a Victorian Caravan Park And Experience The Joy Of Winter

Category: Inspiration, News, Date: 19 April 2024

As Victorians pull out their winter coats, and fire pits replace fans, now’s the perfect time to experience a winter caravan park holiday or weekend getaway in the southern state that fits winter like a warm woollen glove.

The colder months bring experiences that are every bit different for holidaymakers – the crunch of fallen leaves, marshmellows over the fire pit and less crowds than the busier summer months. What’s not to love about a winter caravan park holiday in Victoria?

In fact, they are the ideal place to enjoy a concept the Danes have perfected and which can be easily replicated in a caravan park in the cold and dark months of a Victorian winter.

Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) is about taking time away from the daily rush to be together with people you care about – or even by yourself – to relax and enjoy life’s quieter pleasures.
e is often about informal time together with family or friends. It usually involves sharing food and wine as you celebrate the small joys of life and is an opportunity to unwind and take things slow.

Winter is the perfect time to experience hygge and what better place to do so than a caravan park where family and friends can connect and share experiences while still maintaining their preferred accommodation options.

Relaxation, Adventure and Unique Experiences at Victorian Caravan Parks

Victorian Caravan Parks Association CEO Scott Parker said Victorian caravan parks offered a wide range of relaxing – and adventurous – winter experiences, with new and exciting cabin accommodation options now available at many parks.

In addition to welcoming campers with their own tents, caravans and motorhomes, many holiday parks provide cabin accommodation and glamping tents, with features to rival luxury hotel and suite accommodation,” Scott said.

Companies constructing transportable homes and holiday park cabins are reporting an increase in requests for high end products and features. Contemporary design and comforts are what many of today’s consumers are seeking and Victorian caravan parks are meeting that demand.” 

As all caravanners and campers already know, part of the charm of a caravan park holiday is socialising in the camp kitchen over a hot chocolate – or a robust Victorian red – and finishing those conversations around the fire pit, or in front of the bbq or pizza oven

You will find VicParks member caravan parks spread across Victoria’s most scenic locations – from the coast to the high country and everywhere in between.

One of the (many) benefits of holidaying in Victoria is the breadth of experiences within close distance of each other. For Melburnians, that means a vast array of choices, even if you only have time to escape for a night or two,” Scott said.

For interstate visitors, it means less time on the road as you discover everything Melbourne and Victoria has to offer.

Not Too Far To Travel

Why not change it up by staying in a caravan park within the suburbs of Melbourne? The closest holiday park is just over 11km from the CBD. You can choose a caravan park for your skiing holiday base or as you discover the thrill of extensive mountain bike and rail trail networks.

Winter is also the perfect time to book a caravan park in one of the state’s wine districts or enjoy the warmth and relaxation of the growing number of hot springs.

And don’t miss the chance to experience the wild beauty of Victoria’s coastline in winter as you beachcomb, watch the waves crash, try your hand at surf fishing or just enjoy the salt-laced air and solitude that a winter coastal holiday offers.

As for the parks themselves, the wonderful thing about Victoria’s caravan parks is that the accommodation is not cookie cutter. From BYO swag through to a luxury cabin, the offering is extensive.

If you are seeking solitude, choose a classic country park on a bush site by the river. A glamping tent with an outdoor bath is perfect for a romantic get-away, while pre-schoolers will love a more resort-style park with an indoor pool.

A great starting point is to check out the amazing regional events and exhibitions held in Victoria over the winter months. You can then use the VicParks website to cross-reference caravan parks in the area but book early so you don’t miss out,” Scott said.

Many caravan parks advertise special deals in winter making the cooler months a cost-effective holiday option.

So this winter, choose to stay at a Victorian caravan park and explore this beautiful part of Australia and all it has to offer.
