Crows Nest Best Family-friendly Accommodation
There are many reasons why a camping, caravan or cabin holiday is fantastic for families for young children, especially if the park has excellent onsite facilities! Crows Nest Caravan Park accommodation have the onsite features needed for a relaxed, easy and safe family holiday.
On site facilities can make the world of difference when holidaying with young kids.
Our caravan park guests can make use of the camp kitchen for fussy eaters or enjoy delicious Latin American meal at our new café, ‘The Hidden Cocina’. There is also a fantastic IGA store, butcher, baker and bottle shop located within walking distance of our caravan park.
If you stay in the warmer months, we have a salt water pool onsite. In the cooler months, enjoy a campfire with the children, roasting marshmallows over an open fire. With plenty of space to run around and play in the outdoors, parents will appreciate our open playground area where kids love to explore.
Warm showers, clean flushing toilets and an onsite camp kitchen are much easier for parents with younger children and means less messing around in makeshift camp showers and drop toilets. If camping is not really your thing, book a family-friendly cabin with supplied linen, air-conditioning, ensuites, laundries and kitchenettes.
We are also pet friendly so, please feel free to bring the family dog to make your stay even more enjoyable. For more information on our onsite facilities, please click here.

We were so impressed by the Park, we immediately booked it as the location for our second rally later this year!
The Crows Nest Tourist Park was transported back to the days of motoring glory recently when the Vintage Vehicle Touring Enthusiasts Association arrived for the first of two annual vehicle tours. Over 18 members enjoyed a relaxing weekend while showcasing their rare and magnificent vehicles.
The thought of organising a club rally with enough activities and facilities to keep over 20 members and their guests entertained for a week is enough to make even the most experienced event organiser’s hair turn grey.
