Camplify, an Aussie caravan and campervan sharing platform, has seen booking numbers skyrocket in the wake of coronavirus.
“We’ve had record bookings for our vans over the past month so we know Australians are choosing to travel locally where they can. For many, this is their go-to holiday choice, but we’re also seeing a lot of new customers who haven’t camped or hired a caravan/campervan before,” said Camplify CEO, Justin Hales.
We’ve rounded up all the hidden-gem spots worth exploring so you can still get your holiday fix this year.
BIG4 East Beach Park, Kiama, NSW
This caravan park is picturesque with mountain backdrops and a beach front. This is the ultimate spot for families, with a waterpark for the kids and bike tracks for the grow-ups.
Reflections Bermagui, NSW
This spot is an optimal location with beaches, cafes, shops and an ocean pool all within walking distance to the caravan park. You won’t want to miss this cute, coastal town.
Trial Bay Gaol, NSW
Trial Bay Gaol is right on the beach with great facilities. The area is full of wildlife and in whale migration season you’re likely to spot one from the comfort of your caravan. Explore the ruins of Trial Bay Gaol (an actual jail) which was built in 1886 and now functions as a museum and memorial.
