Caravan Parks

Pambula Caravan Park NSW

Approx 1 hour north of the Victoria border and just half an hour from Eden in the very south of NSW is the Pambula Caravan Park.

This is our Number 1 rated Best Caravan Park in Australia.

The features of the park are endless and the location is perfect.

We have no hesitation in rating this one as our favourite Caravan Park in Australia.

One of the entries to the beach directly from Discovery Pambula Caravan Park
Pambula Beach

Pambula is a small town on the Sapphire Coast of NSW just 4kms south of Merimbula and a short drive out to the stunning beach location at Pambula Beach.

With a population of just over 1000 people Pambula is a historic village with beautiful colonial buildings and genuine character.

The bakery is a must visit as is the Longstocking Brewery and Oyster Bar where you can enjoy beer, wine, cocktails and of course, some delicious local fresh oysters.

The Pambula markets are held on the second Sunday of each month with lots of craft and great food.

Pambula Beach Accommodation

If you are looking for Pambula Beach accommodation we highly recommend the Discovery Holiday Parks.

Accommodation includes Cabins, Apartments, Powered Sites, Powered Ensuite Sites and Unpowered Sites all located just a stones throw from the beach.

The amazing features of this Pambula Caravan Park are it’s superb location and fair price to stay that make this without doubt, fantastic value for money.

The Discovery Holiday Parks at Pambula Beach is fronting directly onto the beach with easy access through a short track to the stunning beach.

Entry to the park is through a security coded gate with details provided at check in.

The sites are especially large for a caravan park and provide much better privacy than you normally might expect.

It really was enjoyable not having the neighbours so close to you as you often experience elsewhere.

Read about: Save Money staying at Caravan Parks

What is there to do at Discovery Holiday Parks Pambula Beach?

There is a big outdoor pool plus a fantastic heated indoor pool, a spa and a great water park.

The kids can enjoy a fabulous time with an excellent children’s playground plus huge jumping pillow.

There’s even an excellent Mini Golf Course available.

A big games room is open for hours of entertainment for everyone and there’s a massive TV room.

The beach fishing directly in front of the Caravan Park at Pambula is excellent and we caught some Salmon and Flathead during our stay. The river is also an ideal spot to cast a line and catch a great feed.

Friendly Kangaroos roam the park and are used to human interaction. Lorikeets will come to you, just use grapes, they love them and they aren’t harmful to the birds.

Please don’t feed them bread. It holds no nutritional value to birds and can cause health issues.

Facilities at the Discovery Pambula Caravan Park

This Pambula Beach Caravan Park has an excellent camp kitchen which includes modern electric BBQ’s, heaps of seating, ovens, cooktops and appliances.

Upstairs is an adults only space with a lounge, coffee and loads of reading material with views to the beach.

These facilities are without doubt the best we have experienced around the country.

Cooking at the Camp Kitchen right opposite our site - Pambula Caravan Park
The Discovery Holiday Parks Pambula Beach Games Room

We had good phone coverage with both Telstra and Vodafone networks during our stay.

The features here are endless which makes this the perfect Pambula Beach Caravan Park accommodation.

Next door to the Discovery Pambula Caravan Park is a small shop plus a restaurant and bar as well as the Pambula Surf Life Savers Club.

Is the Pambula Caravan Park Pet Friendly?

The Discovery Holiday Park Pambula Beach is not pet friendly which is why so many animals roam the grounds feeling safe.

Sadly our Golden Retriever MACKS had passed by the time we visited the NSW Coast however as we were no longer travelling with a pet meant we were able to experience this fabulous Pambula Caravan Park.

5 Essentials – Outside RV Accessories

  1. To plug your RV with standard 15amp in to standard residential 10amp power source you will need a converter. We love our waterproof Ampfibian and after over 4 years it’s still perfect.
  2. Most people carry a Generator for back up power. 4wd Supacentre has a good low cost and popular generator while the Yamaha 2000w is a robust yet quiet excellent performer.
  3. A 20m 15amp Power Lead will ensure you reach your power source in Caravan Parks and Campgrounds.
  4. You will want a good blue Drinking Water Hose. Your typical green garden hose is not suitable for drinking from.
  5. A 4 way tap handle will help you find water whenever you need it

Lobster Factory Tour

While visiting Geraldton, we did the live lobster tour at the Geraldton Fishermen’s Co-operative. This inexpensive tour was very informative and provided a fascinating ‘behind-the- scenes’ look at a live lobster factory. 

We saw how the live lobsters were sorted and even had the opportunity to hold a live lobster and have your photo taken. You just didn’t want to be that one person who dropped it, they are very expensive!

Update 2021 – Tours have been suspended until further notice.

We visited the HMAS Sydney II Geraldton while we were based at the Bel Air Gardens Caravan Park in Geraldton

The National Memorial is located atop of Mount Scott in Geraldton. The HMAS Sydney II Memorial is one of the ‘must sees’ in Geraldton and it is especially impressive at night when it is under illumination.

The magnificent cathedral is fabulous to see during the day but even more spectacular under lights at night!

The spectacular Nature’s Window in Kalbarri National Park

Take a drive to Natures Window in Kalbarri National Park

Nature’s Window for us and most people one of the highlights when travelling around Western Australia.

This iconic natural wonder has resulted in a window being formed in the layered sand stone from constant wind erosion over time.

It frames the Murchison River below perfectly and is one of the most photographed attractions in Australia.

The Abrolhos Island lie approximately 80kms west of Geraldton. They are the most southern coral reef in the Indian Ocean as well as being one of the world’s highest latitude reef systems.

Caravan Parks

Broome Caravan Park, Cable Beach WA

Tarrangua Caravan Park

We were looking for a good Broome Caravan Park when we arrived but we were travelling with our dog MACKS which made it harder to find a place to stay.

The Tarangau Caravan Park in Broome became available once the overflow places closed and we moved into it.

Within walking distance to the spectacular Cable Beach and an easy drive into Broome, it was convenient place to stay.

From here we were able to explore all the incredible Things to See and Do in Broome.

Tarangau Broome Caravan Park is just under 6kms from Cable Beach

Broome is located in the the Kimberley region of Western Australia 1,680kms north from the state’s capital city of Perth.

In the 1880’s, Broome began in the pearling industry and still today pearls remain part of the regions tradition.

An under sea telegraph cable was laid to East Java given the name Cable Beach to it’s most popular tourist destination.

Approximately 14,000 people live in Broome however tourism through the winter months temporarily gives a significant boost to the population.

Tarangua Broome Caravan Park

This is a good Broome Caravan Park within walking distance to Cable Beach, but be prepared, there are plenty of rules.

The management and staff are quite friendly and promote their Caravan Park as the quiet alternative.

Powered and unpowered sites are both available with prices variable depending on time of the year.

Tarangau Broome Caravan Park Facilities

There is a wash bay for Caravans and Boats for just $5 and all funds go to the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) which is a fantastic cause.

A free washing bay is also available for pets although there is a $2 per night charge for dogs.

Car Wash and Pet Wash Area at Tarangau Broome Caravan Park

The amenities block is excellent and is kept clean. We found that the showers were nice and hot here.

BBQ’s are available in this Broome Caravan Park and the Camp kitchen is excellent with a fridge, freezer and other cooking facilities.

There is plenty of space is available around the park, sites are reasonably sized and easy to reverse into with either a Caravan or Motorhome.

There’s water to hook up to on each powered site and an easy grey water release.

Shady sites at Taraagua Broome Caravan Park

No pool is available onsite so to go swimming take the short drive to Cable Beach and enjoy the beach there.

We had good Telstra coverage during our stay at this Broome Caravan Park near Cable Beach.

Are pets allowed at this Broome Caravan Park?

The Tarangau Broome Caravan Park has a designated area for people travelling with pets. Check on the availability of the pet friendly sites at the time of your booking as they book up quickly.

It took a number of times checking with the park before a pet friendly site became available and we were able to stay with our Golden Retriever MACKS.

Magnificent sunset from Gantheaume Point

What else is there to do in Broome?

From the Tarangau Broome Caravan Park it’s an easy drive into the town of Broome or to go sightseeing at all the fantastic places to visit during your stay.

Here are some of our favourite experiences in Broome:

Sunsets

The sunsets in Broome are simply stunning. One of the most popular spots to view the colourful sunsets of Broome is from Cable Beach.

Gantheaume Point is also an absolutely awesome vantage point to watch an amazing WA sunset. The rugged cliffs and glow on the rocks is amazing and a must see!

Cable Beach

Cable Beach is not only a 22km stretch of brilliant white sandy beach but it’s also the name of the suburb that surrounds this iconic beach in Broome.

This fabulous beach is great for swimming, you can hire a beach umbrella and just relax on the beach plus you can even take your 4WD onto the beach.

Is it safe to swim at Broome?

Swimming at Cable Beach is generally safe for swimming. During the months of November through to May/June swimming in the ocean should be avoided due to the deadly Chironex Box Jellyfish and Irukandji inhabiting the waters in these warmer months.

Did you know:

Cable Beach was named after the telegraph cable that was laid in 1889 between Broome and Java.

Amazing Things in WA Horizontal Falls
Spectacular view of Horizontal Falls from above

Horizontal Falls

Save up and do a tour to Horizontal Falls, it is definitely a once in a lifetime experience you do not want to miss. We did a full day tour out of Broome and it was absolutely fabulous.

Our fun packed day tour with Horizontal Falls Adventures included:

  • a flight in a seaplane over the Buccaneer Archipelago and landing on the water at Talbot Bay
  • the thrill of riding through the Horizontal Falls
  • a visit to the hatchery at One Arm Point
  • lunch and time to stroll on the beach at Cape Leveque
  • 4WD trip back to Broome stopping at Beagle Bay to see the Mother of Pearl Church.

There are a number of companies offering camel rides and we chose an afternoon ride with Sun Camels.

The sunset camel rides are very popular as well. It is awesome to witness the sunset silhouette of the camels and great to capture this fabulous sunset shot.

Broome Pearls

Broome has long been known for its pearling industry and has produced some of the world’s finest pearls since 1880.

In 1883, Broome was founded as a pearling industry port and named after Sir Frederick Broome, the Governor of Western Australia at the time.

Adele loves pearls and couldn’t resist buying some pearls from Willie Creek Pearls in Chinatown Broome.

Broome Jetty

Fishing

The Broome Jetty is a popular place for fishing and is renowned for catching queenies, trevally, mackies, tuna and even barra.

Kev and Matt took a full day fishing charter out of Broome. They got onto a few good fish that they were able to bring home including Kev’s first ever mackerel.
