Family holidays are the image of Australian life in a nutshell. These escapes from reality are a simple and fun way to reconnect with each other. When parents are rushing to work, and kids are busy with school and sport, families can sometimes live parallel lives. But when you’re on holidays, you can’t help but spend quality time together. These experiences are often when memories are made, stories are shared, and laughs are in-excess. Family camping trips are an even better way to bring your family together because you’re literally sharing the same tent, caravan or cabin! When your family camps at Murphy’s Creek Escape, you’re guaranteed a relaxing, memorable and enjoyable holiday for every member of the family. It’s not just the quality bond opportunities; there are plenty of other great reasons to head out on a family camping trip.
Why should you take your family camping?
Multi-Generational Family camping trips don’t just have to be for your immediate family. You can bring generations of family together at Murphy’s Creek Escape by inviting aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, or anyone else that’s game enough to join! Days may be filled with activities together, or you can split off for different outings and come back together at night. It’s the type of holiday that suits everyone in the family. There is no excuse for missing out on the fun!
Explore a New Environment
Sometimes it takes being in a new environment to truly switch off and recharge your batteries. By getting the family outside and into a different setting, you’ll have plenty of new attractions, sights and activities to keep you busy. The beauty of camping is that you’re truly immersed in the great outdoors, and there is no beauty way to embrace nature!
Family camping is a great way to teach your kids new skills. Pitching a tent together, starting a campfire and cooking outdoors are skills your child can carry throughout their life, and eventually pass on to their own children. You can also create new family traditions to look forward to on your next trip, and you’re guaranteed to gather at least a few stories that you’ll be laughing about for years. The range of activities at Murphy’s Creek Escape might even help the youngsters (or the old folks!) overcome their fears.
Physical Activity: Anyone with kids of their own knows that they are little bundles of energy. Luckily, camping will use up plenty of that stored up enthusiasm with the almost limitless selection of activities that will keep them busy. Setting up tents, prepping food, gathering wood and tidying the site will occupy even the most restless of little ones. The Murphy’s Creek Escape campgrounds are also brimming with action-packed activities, like the giant swing, abseiling, hiking, biking and bird feeding. There really is always something to do.
Affordable: Unlike staying at a hotel or resort, family camping is an affordable and simple option for a holiday. After securing your site and setting up your caravan or tent, there is little need to open up your wallet. The extensive range of outdoor activities will keep the kids busy for hours on end, and there is no need to get dressed up for fancy and expensive dinners either. Campers can bring all their food with them, and we have an on-site store with a range of affordable items too. There are also different types of sites and accommodation options to suit every budget and need. At Murphy’s Creek Escape we do fun, without breaking the budget!
Time Outdoors: You can’t get much closer to nature than on a family camping trip. Sit by your tent and quietly observe animals in their natural habitat or go for a hike and listen to the backing track of birds and insects. There is something special about the Upper Lockyer Valley region, and camping at Murphy’s Creek Escape is the absolute best way to embrace it.
