Here are our top reasons to pick a caravan park for your next holiday.
Options for everyone
Hotels are popular with many people for the wide variety of choices these facilities offer. People holidayers indulge in the luxury of being able to choose between different sized rooms, different configurations or scrolling through images of the on-site amenities. But these days, caravan parks offer something for everyone too.
At Murphy’s Creek Escape, you can park your caravan on a remote site in the bushland, or you can choose to settle into a populated caravan park that sits alongside the ropes courses, archery field, abseiling tower or giant swing. You can pop-up your camper for one night or you can stay for an entire month. We’ve got BBQ areas, camp kitchens and even an on-site shop – what more could you ask for?!
Staying in a fancy hotel often means a long haul flight, or at least a lengthy drive. Murphy’s Creek Escape is the ultimate option for anyone looking to bring the whole family and (quite literally) a kitchen sink along for the ride! You can bring as much luggage as you can fit in your car, which means you won’t have to scale back on packing and the kids won’t need to choose between their fishing rod and their bike. With so many options to keep the youngsters busy, you’ll have more time to relax and enjoy your getaway.
The Murphy’s Creek Escape caravan parks are also home to BBQ areas, camp kitchens and even an on-site shop. We’ve got practically everything you could possibly need on your doorstep, so that you don’t need to venture too far.
Wide range of activities
Holidays are all about having fun, forgetting your responsibilities and making memories with your nearest and dearest. Staying in a caravan park provides you with an endless array of activities to choose from. The vast spaces encourage campers to get out and enjoy the
outdoors, which means you’ll probably have a bunch of new friends before you’ve even finished unpacking.
While you’re busy barbecuing and sharing a drink with the site next door, your kids have got plenty of room to run a-muck. Unlike hotels, caravan parks are the ideal place for kids to test out their new bike, throw the footy or have a tea party under the trees. The best part is that your kids will probably find other children to play with, so you won’t have to worry about them getting bored or running out of things to do.
The Murphy’s Creek Escape also hosts a range of on-site activities, including everything from hikes to a giant swing. With so many options to choose from, your biggest struggle may be dragging yourself home at the end of your stay.
An epic nature fix
While holidays are a time for having fun and getting adventurous, it’s also an opportunity to switch off and recharge. There is no better way to give yourself a boost than with a nature hit. The Upper Lockyer Valley is the ideal place to get in touch with nature and explore the outdoors. Imagine mornings listening to the sound of native birds, afternoons spent by swimming holes and evening under the sky full of stars. You can take your time to explore the area, hop along creek beds, take a dip in the inland beach, or indulge in the view from the top of a ridge. This is just a sneak peek of what you can expect when you stay at the Murphy’s Creek Escape caravan parks. Dogs and horses are most welcome to join in on the adventure too!
