Discard the alarm clock and be woken by the beckoning melodies of nature and peaceful echoes of waves crashing against a sandy shoreline. While the idea of spending holiday time camping or caravanning may not appeal to some, there are many that realise the true value of an adventurous, family affordable holiday set amongst the beauty of nature, wildlife, golden beaches and spectacular beachfront locations.
Camping and caravanning is for all holiday makers whether single, attached, in a group, family or retiree. If you're new to camping, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the amount of camping gear available that's both easy to use and affordable. Unlike hotel accommodation, your camping gear or caravan is much like an investment you can utilise for years. After all, you can't make claim to a hotel room after staying in it for one night or more.
Tearing the kids away from television and video games isn't hard
as there are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you and the kids occupied. Swimming, fishing, surfing, boating, canoeing, cycling, hiking, bush walking, 4WD and beach sports will ensure they're worn out enough to fall asleep early at night, giving you and your beau time to relax and partake in a romantic rendezvous around a campfire under the stars.
Sunshine Coast Holiday Parks list detailed information for seven exceptional holiday parks and two campgrounds located throughout the Sunshine Coast. They're situated at all the major hot spots like Dicky Beach, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Cotton Tree, Mudjimba, Coolum, Noosa and Boreen.
As well as beachfront views, many of the holiday parks feature powered caravan sites and un-powered tent sites, villas, studios, BBQ facilities, laundry facilities, toilet/shower facilities and camp kitchens. A few have added extras making it almost like a beachfront resort with a children's playground, swimming pool and tennis court. A few are dog friendly, so the pooch won't miss out on his/her family holiday.

It's not often we get the chance to bask amongst the natural beauty that's contained within a national park. If camping and caravanning in the heart of nature sounds appealing checkout the Sunshine Coast Council recommended camping areas at Coochin Creek, Jimna's Peach Trees and Booloumba Creek.
Please note that camping is not permitted everywhere, only in approved locations. If you're unsure check with a Sunshine Coast visitor information centre before setting up your campsite as fines do apply for illegal camping.
Whether you accommodation preference is camping, caravanning or relaxing in more lavish settings like a beachfront villa, Sunshine Coast camping and caravan parks provide an affordable, adventurous holiday creating priceless memories that will last a lifetime.
