Camping continues to offer unbeatable value for school holidays.

As the September holidays approach and the vibrant Australian spring comes into full bloom, Let’s Go Caravan & Camping is encouraging families across the nation to choose camping and to create cherished memories, improve their well-being and relationships while using the beauty of Australia’s nature as the perfect elixir.

With a focus on promoting family togetherness and a love for the outdoors, camping is the ideal choice for a fulfilling and exciting holiday experience.

"Camping during the September holidays is a fantastic way for families to disconnect from their screens, immerse themselves in nature, and create lasting memories together. As spring transforms the Australian landscape, campsites and holiday parks all over the country offer the perfect backdrop for families to explore, relax, and bond,” said Keelan Howard, General Manager of Marketing at Let’s Go Caravan & Camping.

Why Choose Camping for September Holidays?

Spring in Australia is a season of renewal and rejuvenation, making it the perfect time to take the kids camping.

Disconnect from the digital world and immerse yourselves in nature's wonders.

According to research from the Real Richness Report from Caravan Industry Association of Australia, an impressive 78% of families experienced a notable increase in shared activities during camping excursions.

Camping offers an opportunity for families to bond, learn, and grow together while exploring the stunning landscapes that this beautiful country has to offer.

The parks not only offer an abundance of fun for you and the family, but also provide great value and wellness benefits.

Check out their websites and investigate your selected parks' VIP cards and exclusive offers, designed to make your camping experience truly special.

These packages are crafted to allow you to choose a holiday best suited to your family without breaking the bank.

A great example of this is the G’Day Parks Membership- where you can receive 10% off your booking, exclusive savings, various in-park benefits and more.
Top Reasons to Choose a Family Camping Adventure.

Unplug and Reconnect

Camping allows families to disconnect from screens and distractions, fostering genuine connections.

Spend quality time together, engage in meaningful conversations, and relish in the simple joys that nature provides.

According to the Real Richness Report by the Caravan Industry Association of Australia, camping holds the key to a profound disconnection from screens and modern distractions, leading to the cultivation of genuine connections among families.
Developing Social Skills and Lifelong Friendships

The magic of camping extends beyond the family circle, offering children a chance to expand their social horizons and develop vital social skills.

Kids from all over come together in a safe and friendly environment, forming friendships that often mirror the lifespan of a fleeting mayfly—lasting just for the duration of the holiday.

Many of these connections are rekindled over subsequent school holidays, as families return to their favourite parks to create new memories.

These campsites offer a nostalgic haven reminiscent of the neighbourhoods of old, where children can cycle their bikes, skate, play on jumping pillows or the playground and enjoy carefree days of wholesome fun.
What’s There To Do?
Nature Scavenger Hunt

Take the kids around the holiday park you’re staying at and send them out on a scavenger hunt to discover the wonders of the surrounding environment.

From spotting native bird species to identifying unique plant specimens, this interactive activity encourages kids to engage with nature and can be a fun way for families to bond.

Create lasting memories by preparing delicious meals over an open campfire.

Bring the kids around and teach them essential cooking skills and bond as a family while enjoying the simple pleasure of a freshly cooked meal.
