Reception
The entrance and the reception of the Batavia Coast Caravan Park


What a surprise Batavia Coast Caravan Park turned out to be in Geraldton, WA. Initially it seemed dingey in comparison to the other, more sophisticated caravan parks of Geraldton yet it proved to be the ideal setting to enjoy a stress-free relaxing holiday with the family. If you want to have a true break and chill out, then the Batavia Coast Caravan Park is the place to do it when visiting Geraldton, WA.

Yes, the other caravan parks have trimmed hedges and everything perfectly in their place yet they are exposed to the relentless wind that hits Geraldton CBD and coastline. On the other hand, the Batavia Coast Caravan Park has the 'outback' feel to it and no constant wind that makes you want to go inside to avoid it. Set a just two kilometre's inland, the red earth makes one feel like they are in Alice Springs experiencing true Australia.

As tourists are also generally nature lovers, the Batavia Coast Caravan Park boasts a small Galah population that contributes to the atmosphere of chilling out. Visitors to the park are known to take out their camera's to take pictures of the Galah's as their pink and grey coloured feathers are unusual in comparison to the common birds.

Just a few minutes drive from Geraldton CBD, close to shopping centres and convenience food outlets such as Red Rooster, MacDonald's, Domino's Pizza's and Subway among other things.


To make it even better, the salt water pool of the Batavia Coast Caravan Park is refreshingly cool and accessible all day. It's crystal clear blue water is a haven for adults and children alike where they can bond in play or simply relax and put their feet up on a banana lounge in the shade and take it easy.

The crystal clear waters of the salt-water pool are refeshing. Chill out and put your feet up after a dip in the pool.


Furthermore, the staff contribute to this atmosphere of leisure by immediately resolving any issue, answering promptly any queries or helping in anyway they can. That is a definite plus with this caravan park. The guest is definitely are not just a number.

Yet there's more. Contributing to the stress-free holiday stay in the Batavia Coast Caravan Park you do not even need to sign in or check out when the stay is over. You simply pay over the phone via credit card, as one does in this day and age, then when you arrive your key is in the white letter box outside the reception. If they can upgrade you, they will. Personally my family and I were upgraded from a small two person chalet to the six person Cottage that was only metres from the beautiful crystal clear pool. What a refreshing delight.

The cottage
A delightful cottage that houses 7 only metres away from the swimming pool. It contains everything necessary for a short or long break.


Then when you leave, simply return the key back in the white letter box. Naturally, it is done all with a measure of good faith in people. The management of the Batavia Coast Caravan Park manifest trust in their guests like in the 'good ol' days'.

I would highly recommend staying in the tranquil grounds of the Batavia Coast Caravan Park on the outskirts of Geraldton to avoid the Geraldton wind, to experience the true Australia and to experience truly peaceful surroundings. It's a winner.
