Why Brisbane Holiday Village is the Perfect Place to Start Your Caravan Adventure

BUYING OR HIRING A CARAVAN TO EXPLORE AUSTRALIA WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS YOU’LL EVER MAKE

Here are some of the benefits of going on a caravan adventure:

You don’t have to settle into a hotel room and then pack up and repeat from place to place

The most annoying part of travelling is probably unpacking and packing every few days. Once you finally start feeling settled in your accommodation, before you know it you will be repacking your life into your bags and continuing your trip. The beauty of a caravan is that you don’t need to worry about constantly do this, as your accommodation travels with you and you will feel settled for the whole duration of your trip.

You are closer to nature

You have access to views on your doorstep rather than a window from afar, plus boring car trips don’t exist when you are travelling through beautiful landscapes from destination to destination.

It’s more social

Making friends is easier when you feel a part of a community in a caravan park, with stories and experiences to share, you can also score some handy recommendations along your trip. Brisbane Holiday Village is a friendly community and welcomes all new and previous guests to enjoy their holiday here.

It’s affordable

Caravan sites are much more affordable than hotel rooms every night, especially if you have invested in your own caravan. Powered caravan sites at Brisbane Holiday Village start from $51 per night.

Do something different

Rather than do the same annual holiday of catching a plane and staying in a hotel, do something different and hire a caravan and experience something new – you won’t regret it!

Thinking about hiring a caravan?

If you aren’t prepared to invest in a caravan just yet, test out the waters and hire a caravan from Adventure Shack and stay at Brisbane Holiday Village to experience what it is like to live and travel in your own little home.

Located in Capalaba, Adventure Shack is the perfect distance from Brisbane Holiday Village to test a caravan out or start your adventure. With a variety of caravans for hire, you won’t leave disappointed. Check out the full range here.

Caravanning for Beginners: 7 Things to Consider Before You Hit the Open Road

Caravanning for beginners can be a super exciting time, but there are a number of pitfalls that can spoil the fun of your first family journey. While you’re sure to have done your research on most aspects of the caravanning experience, there will always be an oversight or two.

Follow these 7 tips for caravanning for beginners to ensure that your first journey is as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.

 

Get Your Equipment Sorted

Caravanning for beginners isn’t cheap, but there are a list of essentials you really must have before you set off. You’ll need a towing aid, caravan jack, sway control equipment, towing mirrors, a fire extinguisher, engine oils and fluids, wheel blocks and other gear depending on your caravan.

Consider Safety Hazards Before You Leave

Everyone knows to check all lights and tyre inflation levels before setting off, but there are other safety checks to be made. Ensure the jockey wheel is secured, your caravan steps have been raised and the towing aid is correctly fitted at the start of your journey. Also, check that everything inside your caravan is secured and the doors and windows are locked.

Don’t Overdo It

Nobody wants to be the motorist who holds up traffic, but it’s best to err on the side of caution when you’re getting started. By all means, use slow vehicle turnouts and allow motorists to pass you when safe, but your focus should always be on safe towing rather than speed.

 

Driving at highway speeds while towing a caravan can also lead to very poor fuel consumption, especially in windy conditions.

Start at the Crack of Dawn

You’ll feel more confident in the early stages of your first caravan adventure if you hit the road early. The traffic will be much lighter, and you’ll be able to get a feel for the handling of your caravan without having to navigate roads full of motorists.

Make the Most of the Space You Have

If you’re caravanning with your young family, it’s hard to know how you’ll all take to the confined living areas. Be mindful of everyone’s personal space, try and be as patient as you can and spend as much time outdoors as possible to start with. Caravanning for beginners can be stressful enough without family arguments putting a dampener on your trip.

Prepare a Routine for Setting Up

There’s a lot to do when you arrive at your overnight stop, and time is not always on your side. Practising beforehand can help to streamline your setup routine and give you extra leisure time. Depending on your van, you’ll need to unhitch your caravan and move your vehicle, level the caravan, drop the corner steadies, set up gas and water and connect the electricity. You don’t want to be doing all of this for the first time in the dark.

Work as a Team When Parking

There aren’t that many opportunities to practice reverse-parking your caravan, and it can be daunting the first time you make an attempt.

 

You’ll likely have an audience when you arrive at your overnight stop, so make sure you choose the shortest possible path for reversing. Use your mirrors, take it slowly and try to communicate clearly with your partner as you bring your van into park.

Book a Stopover at Brisbane Holiday Village

Part of the appeal of caravanning for beginners is getting to visit great holiday parks and tourist attractions. Brisbane Holiday Village offers a range of site options for mobile travellers, and is located centrally between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Enjoy Winter in Queensland: 5 Benefits of Cold-Weather Camping at Brisbane Holiday Village

Winter in Queensland is one of the most beautiful times of year. Chilly mornings shouldn’t stop you from planning a getaway in the great outdoors this winter.

Family Outing To The Snow

Winter in Queensland is one of the most beautiful times of year. Chilly mornings shouldn’t stop you from planning a getaway in the great outdoors this winter.

We think our camping sites are a great option for holidaymakers looking to enjoy winter in Queensland. Consider these 5 benefits of cold-weather camping at Brisbane Holiday Village when planning your mid-year holiday.

It’s Just as Comfortable as Summer Camping with the Right Preparation

You can be just as cozy camping in winter provided you do your research on clothing and bedding beforehand. You’ll rarely see the overnight temperature in Brisbane drop below 10 degrees in the winter months, so use that as a guide when preparing sleeping arrangements.

Consider the 3 layer clothing rule for camping in winter – wear a close-fitting base layer for warmth and moisture control, a mid-layer for insulation and an outer layer for weather protection. That should be more than enough to protect your from the chill.

You Can Take Advantage of Australia’s Driest Months

Brisbane is known for generally dry and mild conditions in winter, making it ideal for comfortable camping trips. We aren’t subjected to the unpredictable storms and downpours that are often a feature of Brisbane summers, so you can plan your trip safely according to long-term forecasts.

The dry weather is also helpful when it comes to planning day-trips during your Brisbane Holiday Village stay. The natural beauty of Queensland’s beaches and national parks are arguably at their peak in the middle of the year.

There Are Less Insects to Deal With

Mozzie bites and persistent flies can be a blight on your summer camping adventures, but most creepy crawlies will leave you alone during winter. Brisbane’s subtropical climate is far milder during winter, allowing you enjoy your time outdoors without constantly reaching for the bug spray.

Roughing It, with a Few Creature Comforts

If you’re travelling with a young family or those new to camping, it is nice to have the added comfort of Brisbane Holiday Village’s amenities and resort facilities. We offer coin-operated laundries and plentiful amenity blocks for all visitors, in addition to 18-hole mini golf, playgrounds, tennis court, bike track, a multi-purpose sports field and much more to keep the young ones occupied.

Millions of Stars to Enjoy

The generally clear weather and earlier sunsets makes winter a great time for family stargazing. Many stars are brighter and easier to discern in winter, so you can use your family getaway at Brisbane Holiday Village to introduce the major constellations to your children.

Celebrate Winter in Queensland at Brisbane Holiday Village

Our winter accommodation options at Brisbane Holiday Village are not limited to our camping sites. We offer five different styles of holiday cabins to suit all budgets, in addition to a range of caravan and powered camping sites for mobile travellers. To stay up to date on our specials with winter approaching, don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter on the Brisbane Holiday Village homepage.

5 Reasons You Should Choose a Holiday Village over Airbnb

5 Reasons You Should Choose a Holiday Village over Airbnb

Your holiday time is precious and passes far too soon. Making the right accommodation choice will set you up for a relaxing and stress-free break from your everyday life.

Travellers looking to save a few dollars often choose Airbnb. While you can have a positive experience using the online service, there is always a risk that your plans can go badly wrong through no fault of your own.

Here are five reasons why holiday parks outweigh Airbnb for short or long term brisbane accommodation needs:

Brisbane Accommodation Brisbane Holiday Village

Facilities to entertain and relax

Most holiday parks usually offer a range of facilities that can accommodate both the adults and the kids. Playgrounds, tennis courts, water parks, 18 hole mini golf and barbeque areas are just some of the amenities that guests at holiday parks can expect to find during their stay.

While you can see photographs and read reviews on your chosen Airbnb accommodation, there is no guarantee that everything will be exactly as it appears. Having a range of facilities to entertain the kids ensures that there is no time for boredom.

Sense of Community

Many travellers enjoy the freedom to be alone that Airbnb might offer, but this isolation can be a problem in certain circumstances. Finding like-minded travellers and sharing experiences is one of the joys of staying at holiday parks whilst travelling to new and uncharted territories.

You Can Communicate with a Dedicated Customer Service Team

One of Airbnb’s disadvantages is inflexibility when it comes to making last minute changes. If your arrival time or something similar has to be changed at the last minute, there is no guarantee your Airbnb owner will be amenable to your situation.

Holiday parks deal with a high volume of customers every day, and are used to finding a solution to a range of issues. Holiday parks have on-site customer service options to deal with these unforeseen circumstances, which can offer you a bit of extra peace of mind.   

You can rely on guaranteed, on-site assistance.

With a dedicated maintenance and housekeeping team, you can expect a high standard of cleanliness, and for all appliances and features to be fully functional. With both linen and towel services provided, there is no need to do the washing yourself, when you can get it professionally done.

Long Term Accommodation Is Often Available

Whether you’re looking for short-term accommodation or an extended holiday, most holiday parks offer long term caravan parks brisbane options.  This is perfect for when you are looking for a home away from home.  Guests to holiday parks have access to a range of facilities and 24/7 professional service ensuring that your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

To inquire about accommodation, give us a call today on 61 7 3341 6133, or email us at sales@brisbaneholidayvillage.com.au.

How To Have a Stress-Free Family Holiday

How To Have a Stress-Free Family Holiday

With Easter holidays coming up, the words stress and family shouldn’t go together. Sometimes holidays can end up being more stressful than they should be, making you wonder why you took a trip in the first place! Don’t let that happen to you.

How To Have a Stress-Free Family Holiday

With Easter holidays coming up, the words stress and family shouldn’t go together.

Sometimes holidays can end up being more stressful than they should be, making you wonder why you took a trip in the first place!

Don’t let that happen to you. Take the worry out of your family getaway with these simple tips.

Tie up Any Loose Ends at Work

Don’t walk out of the office feeling like you haven’t finished enough. You might not be able to do everything but make sure you can tick off everything you’d hoped to have done or at least delegated the things that will need doing while you’re away. 

Plan Your Holiday but Expect Changes

Careful planning to see certain attractions will ensure that you use your holiday time in the best way. But don’t be disappointed if you need to change your days up due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Compromise happily so you don’t feel stressed when things don’t go to plan. 

Pack Wisely 

When you’re travelling with children, packing wisely will have a whole new meaning. Generally speaking, you should pack what is appropriate for the weather and don’t over-do packing. That way you can fit in all the extra items you purchase on your trip. 

Avoid Social Media 

Keep your social media to a minimum while on your trip. Look up and enjoy the new environment you’re in and appreciate the people you are travelling with. 

Set up an Auto-reply on Your Emails

If you’re someone who can’t help but check your emails every time you get a notification, disable those notifications and set an auto-reply on your emails. It will help you avoid work emails and make you feel like you are truly on a vacation from your everyday life. 

Ensure Your Home is Looked After 

Worrying about your home while you’re away definitely isn’t something you want to do. Have someone keep an eye on it, put your bins in and out and check your mail. Call them from time to time for peace of mind that your home is safe and secure. 

Keep Your Spending on Track 

Plan out your spending and try and stick to a budget range that gives you a little bit of flexibility to make spontaneous decisions on your trip. Over budgeting is far better than running out of money and feeling stressed for the remainder of your trip. 

Find Accommodation That is Perfect for Your Needs 

All-in-one accommodation is the least stressful for a holiday. Consider a holiday village that provides resort-style cabins, entertainment for children, restaurants, bike and walking tracks, and more. This means you can still enjoy the change of pace, even when you’re not out and about exploring.

Want to have a stress free holiday in Brisbane? You can’t go past Brisbane Holiday Village for perfect family-friendly accommodation for your next trip. Unwind and feel the stress roll off your back with us! Contact us today to find out more.

Impromptu Travel Adventures – Organising Your Last Minute Escape

Sometimes the most fun can be had at the spur of the moment. Have you ever just decided to pack the car and head away to your favourite holiday cabins in Brisbane? Or maybe it’s a last minute decision to head out to some faraway place, find a caravan park or campground and relax for the weekend.

Organising an impromptu adventure might sound like an oxymoron, but any travel requires at least a small amount of organising. Let’s take a look at how to organise a last minute escape.

Check out Accommodation Specials

Before you pack your bags and fly out the door, jump online and check if you can find some last minute deals. Quite often caravan parks and holiday villages will have discounts available – which you can take advantage of and save some money to spend on your quick getaway.

Don’t Forget the Essentials

While it can be tempting to rush around and pack quickly, this can lead to inconvenience when you arrive only to find that some essential items that you can’t live without are left back at home, sitting on the kitchen bench. Save yourself the hassle of being without your essentials, and the money needed to replace them while you’re on your holiday and double check and make sure that you’ve packed your toiletries, medications and other things that you just can’t live without.

If you do happen to forget things, the Brisbane Holiday Village has its very own convenience store that’s chock full of essential toiletries and food.

Check the Bank Balance

Although you wouldn’t be planning a last minute getaway without enough money to get you there and back, it’s worth making sure that your everyday transaction account has enough in it to get you to where you need to go, book accommodation and all the rest. It might be worth transferring some money across from your savings just to make sure that you’re covered. While you’re at it, be sure to withdraw some cash too. Not everywhere accepts cards, and some places even levy a surcharge.

Fuel in the Tank?

If you’ll be driving on your getaway, you don’t want to get halfway down the highway and come to a shuddering halt because you’ve run out of petrol in your car. Stop at a servo on the way, fill the tank, check your oil and coolant and make sure that your ride is in full running order before you take off on your getaway. While you can’t always compare the best petrol prices before an impromptu trip, it might be worthwhile scanning your local stations and digging up any petrol vouchers before simply pumping and paying.

Need to Know More Hot Tips?

For last minute advice, don’t hesitate to contact our friendly staff. We’re in the know, and will happily share our own tips with you.

6 Common Tourist Mistakes, and How to Avoid Them

6 Common Tourist Mistakes, and How to Avoid Them

When you’re a tourist in another state or country, there are always some mistakes you can make. These mistakes can lead to stress and disappointment.

6 Common Tourist Mistakes, and How to Avoid Them

When you’re a tourist in another state or country, there are always some mistakes you can make. These mistakes can lead to stress and disappointment. They might even interfere with you seeing all the local attractions you wanted to visit.

If you know what the most common tourist mistakes are, then you’ll also know how to avoid them. Let’s explore a few of the bigger ones now.

  1. Over Packing

Last minute packing almost always results in over packing. Check the weather forecast before you leave and pack to the weather with only a couple of ‘just in case the weather changes’ outfits. Write a list of all the items you want to bring too, and cross them off as you go. This way you won’t end up with all your favourite shirts in your wardrobe but no jacket.

Over packing creates worry on the return trip that you’ll exceed your baggage weight requirements and has you feeling like you can’t shop freely. You definitely want to avoid that on your next trip.

  1. Not Checking Your Phone Plan

If you’re coming from overseas, you’ll need to check your international roaming settings are switched on and find out what your fees will be with your current provider. If you’re travelling interstate, you want to make sure you have a decent data package so that you can use your mobile when you aren’t within an area that has free Wi-Fi.

  1. Forgetting to Tell Your Bank about Your Travelling Plans

Banks are pretty switched on when it comes to fraud. If they notice that your bank account suddenly has numerous transactions from a foreign country, they may freeze it until they get in contact with you. Reduce the likelihood of this happening by letting them know about your travel plans before you depart. 

  1. Forgetting to Charge Your Phone Regularly

Just when you think your phone is fine, suddenly you’ve been out and about for half the day and its gone flat. The best way to avoid this is by putting it on charge, even when it’s ¾ full in battery life. In fact, you can recharge your phone every time you are near a power point if necessary. This will stop you from being stuck without it when you need it most. You can also carry car chargers and portable chargers if you’re worried about losing charge while you’re on the move.

  1. Doing Only Minimal Research on Your Destination

It’s good to be spontaneous when you’re heading somewhere new, but that doesn’t mean you can’t familiarise yourself with the area before you go. Avoid missing places you really wanted to see by making sure you know they exist before you get there. You don’t want to come home and realise you actually missed attractions that you know you would have really enjoyed.

  1. Make Sure You Stay in the Perfect Accommodation

Don’t make the mistake of staying in a stuffy hotel or somewhere that doesn’t offer you the comfort of your own home. For the perfect all-in-one accommodation package, you can’t go past Brisbane Holiday Village. Unwind, take a swim, have something to eat, play some mini golf and enjoy yourself all in the one place! Contact us today to find out more.

Glamping in Brisbane: 5 Advantages of Camping with Luxuries Included

The traditional image of sleeping bags in a two-person tent is enticing for some, but not for all.

Many of us are lucky enough to be able to pick-and-choose aspects of the camping experience. Glamping (glamour and camping) is rising in popularity, as it affords travellers the chance to experience the great outdoors without many of the comfort drawbacks.

We think glamping offers the best of both worlds, and we’ll explain exactly why with this list of five glamping advantages:

Luxury Amenities and Activities

There is no doubt that simplicity and getting back to nature is a large part of the appeal of camping. You might have grand plans about roughing it, but inexperienced campers often find themselves pining for the comfort of home before too long.

Resorts and holiday villages suitable for glamping are becoming more common in Australia and worldwide for this reason. Brisbane Holiday Village offers a host of activities for those glamping in Brisbane, including 18-hole mini golf, bird feeding, bike tracks, tennis court and resort-style pool.

The Great Outdoors, Without the Stress

For young families, traditional camping trips can be a stressful experience. Major changes from daily routine can unnerve children; for this reason, glamping is an ideal way to introduce your young family to the great outdoors.

You can get back to nature by planning a bushwalk or a day trip, all the while knowing that the warmth and comfort you are accustomed to is waiting at the end of the day. At Brisbane Holiday Village, our cabins are self-contained with plenty of resort-style facilities. Comfortable and spacious, we have a range of cabins to suit anyone’s needs and budgets.

Significantly Reduced Preparation Time

A successful camping trip requires a great deal of foresight and preparation as you have to prepare for the worst possible scenario. Standard camping sites offer only basic cooking equipment, necessitating a lot of careful planning and storage for food safety.

By choosing a dedicated glamping site with electricity and close proximity to food options, you won’t have to think as much about planning every meal. At Brisbane Holiday Village, we offer the option of powered or unpowered camping sites, as well as ensuite sites for caravans.

You Can Stay on the Grid

Getting away from screens and technology for a while is a major appeal of camping, but it’s nice to know that guaranteed communication is available in an emergency. Glamping at a holiday village or similar will put you in close proximity to guaranteed phone reception and Wi-Fi. Guests at Brisbane Holiday Village enjoy free wifi throughout their stay.

It’s Good for You!

It’s no secret that time spent in the great outdoors can be excellent for your health. Fresh air, exercise and a healthy dose of vitamin D are all positive aspects of glamping.

If you’re looking at a short-term escape from the stresses of life, glamping is the way to go. You’ll be able to keep your regular sleeping patterns better than you would be curled up on a thin camping mat or in a sleeping bag.

Glamping Brisbane: Powered and Ensuite Sites at Brisbane Holiday Village

Travellers in the Brisbane region looking for a long or short-term glamping getaway should consider Brisbane Holiday Village. Our expansive site offers a huge range of things to do for all ages, as well as fantastic resort facilities including our Lagoona Resort Hotel Restaurant.

We offer unpowered and powered camping sites, private ensuite sites for mobile travellers and even luxury cabin accommodation Brisbane for those looking for a bit of extra comfort.

Take the Strain out of Family Travel with This Check-In Advice

Family travel can be a joyous and memorable experience for you and your loved ones, but those early hours with kids can be hectic without the right preparation. A bit of foresight when preparing to check-in can go a long way to getting your holiday off on the right foot. We have put together some tips for checking-in and getting accustomed to your home away from home.

Set Some Ground Rules

Easier said than done, but it’s essential to establish the major rules your kids must follow early, depending on the venue you choose. Family-friendly establishments like holiday parks will understand that noise is a given with kids around, but setting some simple rules for your kids can make things more enjoyable for everyone. Friendly customer service attendants can explain to your kids the rules that they must follow if you request it; the additional authority often helps the message get through.

Inspect the Accommodation First

All mums and dads know that if there is any safety risk within reach of their children, they will make a beeline for it. Even if you’re visiting a family-friendly establishment, it’s worth checking the accommodation beforehand to see if any risks might only apply to your children. If you are travelling with toddlers it is a good idea to bring a baby-proofing kit, so you can cover up the sharp edges and power-points that seem to attract inquisitive kids.

Organise an Activity for When You’re Getting Settled in

Kids tend to be at peak excitement as you enter your holiday accommodation for the first time, making it difficult to get yourself organised. Plan a simple activity that your partner can do with the kids away from the room, while you set up the toiletries, pyjamas and changing stations you will need for the duration of the holiday.

Be Ready to Change Your Plans

It’s pretty much a given that tantrums will ensue during family travel with tots, as the new environments can be overstimulating for young children. Your carefully laid plans for bedtimes, meal arrangements and daytime activities might come to nothing, so be prepared to go with the flow and makeup contingency plans on the fly.

Make a List of Your Entertainment Options

All good family-friendly holiday establishments will offer a list of nearby attractions to suit your family, but it pays to prepare beyond this. Bring some simple entertainment options for your kids such as colouring books and puzzles, and don’t forget to make for the wet-weather that often gathers the moment you load up your car to go on holiday.

Stress-Free Family Travel with Brisbane Holiday Village

Brisbane Holiday Village is proud to offer one of the best facilities in Queensland for family travel. We have powered and unpowered camping sites, extra-large caravan ensuite sites and luxury cabins that can comfortably house up to 8 people. Our resort-style facilities include barbecues, a saltwater lagoon swimming pool and kids pool, bike track, sports field and the best kid’s mini golf Brisbane can offer. With all this and much more, we can provide a family travel experience that will exceed all your expectations. Give us a call on +61 7 3341 6133 for any enquiries or to make a booking.
