Catch up on what's happening in and around the Crows Nest Tourist and Caravan Park
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.
The Crows Nest Tourist Park will be playing host to a rare and exciting event this April when the Australian Flxible Clipper Club arrives for their annual Easter Rally. It will be the first time the rally will be held in Queensland, with members expected to attend from all over the country.
In 1948 Sir Reginald Ansett of Ansett Transport Industries, best remembered for Ansett Airlines, brought the first Flxible Clipper bus to Australia. Since then, the vehicles have become rare collectors items for dedicated enthusiasts. To celebrate their history, the group will be making the busses available to the public on the Saturday 20th April at the Crows Nest Tourist park where visitors will be able to experience these nostalgic touring vehicles.
For years, Crows Nest has been a town often bypassed by first time campers, families looking for a short getaway or even grey nomads travelling through the region. But with so many amazing and unique things to do in the region, we have compiled a list of 10 exciting things to do. Trust us, you won't want to bypass this town again.

If you had the opportunity to buy a caravan park anywhere in the country where would you choose? The ever popular East Coast beaches, crowded with people, battling for free space? Or a peaceful, leafy area in regional Queensland?
For Gerald Searle and business partner Phillip Curnuck, the choice was a no-brainer! The two have a successful history of operating tourist parks ranging from the Snowy Mountains to Northern Queensland. When the opportunity arose to acquire a tourist park in the small, rural town of Crows Nest, less than two hours from Brisbane, they jumped at the chance. Like many people who live in the city, choosing to spend recreational time in an area like Crows Nest wasn't high on their list of things to do. However, it wasn’t long before the two found themselves drawn to the wide open spaces, peace and raw beauty of the area .
There are many things to do for families or anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of crowded coastal holiday destinations.
The Crows Nest Tourist and Caravan Park encourages real connections, as owner Gerald Searle agrees, “It’s about playing cricket with family, you don’t have the opportunity to do that in the tight spaces of a coastal tourist park. Maintaining the Park's charm and character is a top priority for the owners and their management team, who aren't afraid of getting their hands dirty to showcase the park in its true beauty and show just why they believe visiting Crows Nest should be on the top of everyone's to-do lists.
