Caravan Park Wanted Queensland

Postby Frilly » Thu Jan 17, 2008 3:38 pm

Hey All!!

Can anyone help me out? My boss has a caravan (Viscount 1985 size I'm finding out) that he wants to leave at a caravan park or similar on a permanent basis. Ideally he wants it on or near a surf beach. It is fully insured and registered. Anyone have any contacts, ideas or thoughts I may have to pass onto him?? Much appreciated...

Hard finding something like that nowadays, with parks making more money by tossing the permernants and putting in cabins. He might wanna go and explore out of the way spots in areas that he likes.

Ditto to Derek ... the further away from Brissie the more luck he is likely to have. There's a few parks around here (Fraser Coast) but I couldn't say if the allow that type of arrangement.

Another thought, you can leave vans in a van storage yard. The all you have to do is book the park, drive up, hitch the van and off you go. Prices start at $9/ week ... we pay $70/ month for undercover van parking here in Hervey Bay.

Good luck!

Hey Derek!

Sorry I forgot that bit of info... he is looking at Sunshine or Gold Coast area... not as far as Byron Bay distance though. I know this is a tough ask but thought putting it out there to such knowledgeable folks as there are on here would be the best bet. I am so grateful for the replies so far... thanks!!

A friend of mine had a van permanenetly on site at Hastings Point Holiday Park a couple of years back that he used as a weekender - not sure if they still do it or not. Hastings Point is about 10-15 minutes south of Coolangatta.

There was one on Dry Dock Road at Tweed Heads that a friend of mine had an onsite van in some time back. I can't recall the name of it now but have done a search and come up with a couple that your friend could try. I THINK it was Colonial but can't be sure.

Pyramid Caravan Park Kennedy Drv Tweed Heads 5536-3666
River Retreat Caravan Park Dry Dock Rd Tweed Heads 5524-2700

The Tweed Coast Holiday Parks are council run and don't have permanent sites available.

Checked on the weekend and it was the Billabong at South Tweed that the van was in on a permanent site. Not sure if they still have this option or not, your boss would have to check. http://www.tweedbillabong.com.au/

What about Tin Can Bay? I noticed they have a small section out the back for this sort of thing but I don't know what the cost is.

Only problem is there's no surf unless you want to travel to Rainbow Beach (about half hour). TCB is a great place, small, few coffee shops, Saturday market.

And did I metnion the onsite ensuites? 8)

Might be a tad to far tho' as it is about another 45mins from Sunshine Coast.
