The caravan parks, camping spots, farm-stays and accommodation places here are 'Supporting TAWKing'. They have realised that many families are now Free Camping as much as they can and NOT staying in caravan parks due to the EXTRA cost of paying for the children. The following are 'Supporting TAWKing' and offering to TAWK Members: 'Children camp at least two nights FREE!!'* (Some offer more!!).
If you then choose to stay more than two nights you'll just pay the normal park charges.
More and more parks are joining daily! So please book mark and visit often to see the new additions.

**SOME of our TAWK Supporters Parks say they cannot offer this deal in the school holiday or public holiday times BUT let's face it, us TAWKers tend to avoid the busy school holiday periods anyway - Age of kids determined by individual parks rules
"We would just like to say what a fantastic job you have done by creating T.A.W.K. We are finding the TAWKer supporter list for camping accommodation extremely helpful when choosing places to camp as we all know traveling Australia with Kids can get pretty $$$ when staying in caravan parks! Keep up the good work!" - Matthew B

Australia is Massive!
The owners of Airtree Resort are ex-TAWKers! They travelled around Australia with their kids and know how expensive the extra cost of camping with children can be. SO at Airtree Resort kids camp for FREE!!
Airtree Resort is not like a “regular” caravan park where you can hear the people in the next van sneeze or worse still; snore! It has lots of space in the camping area, an outdoor shower and toilet facilities. It is ideal for families as it has so much room, green grass, use of all resort facilities and it's right near the kids adventure playground. There is a bike path at the front gate and a short bike ride to the river and beaches. Bonus - and something our family looked for - you can have a campfire and firewood is free.
They have 4 powered sites but HEAPS of room for unpowered sites. Their aim is to be a unique intimate boutique spot with a farm stay feel and not be over crowded and we think they've nailed it!
When you are in the area, please put them on your must stay list and tell them TAWK sent you. ❤

I was very, very excited to hear from Anchor Belle Holiday Park that they wanted to be on board our TAWKer Supporter Program. Situated on the fabulous Phillip Island - famous for it's Motor Racing Circuit AND for the Penguin Parade; where the little Penguins waddle up the beach to their sand dune homes - apparently a sight to behold.
The park has an indoor heated pool (closed Victorian school 3rd term), a jumping cushion, games room and a toddler playground - often that's all my kids wanted after a day out exploring. It's only 100 metres to the beautiful beach and a perfect spot to explore all that Phillip Island has to offer and there's a lot! Be prepared you may stay a while and to help you with that, Anchor Belle Holiday Park would like to offer TAWK Members 2 night's FREE camping* for your kids.
Phillip Island has to be on your hit list when travelling Australia, so when you get there, make sure you support Anchor Belle Holiday Park as they support you.
Oh! They also welcome your dog outside of their busy periods too - best to check with the park for the details before you arrive.

Apex RiverBeach Holiday Park contacted us to find out more about the TAWKer Supporter Program and we love that as we know that when parks do this, they are the parks that truly welcome families. We explained about the program and how they need to offer 2 night's free for TAWK Members kids* and they were not only keen to offer this and jump on board but are also proactive about telling others about it! We LOVE that even more!
Situated on the banks of the Mighty Murray River and just 4 km from the heart of Mildura it's a great spot to base yourself to explore this historic region. It's situated far enough out of town to give it that 'bush/middle' of no where relaxed feel, but close enough when you need to got to the local shops or attractions,
There is also a bouncy pillow (always a winner for my kids) and a kids playground. YES! They are pet friendly too .
Make sure to put Apex RiverBeach Holiday Park on your must stay list when in the area.

Barwon Heads Caravan Park was suggested to us by a TAWK Member who stayed here and thought that they would be a great fit for out TAWK Supporter Program. We contacted the park and they said YES! But the good news does not stop there! They have another park and said that Riverview Family Caravan Park would join up as well AND up to 4 kids camp free with them anyway! How great is that!?
The park is located on the picturesque banks of the Barwon River, where the river meets the sea. And every caravan site is within a short walk of the water’s edge.
There's simple pleasures to be had here, you can have a walk up to and around the Bluff Lookout to 13th Beach. You and the kids can fish from the jetty or from the local beaches. There are rock pools to explore around the base of the Bluff at low tide, and you can swim in the river or cross the bridge to the beautiful surf beaches at Ocean Grove.
You can settle in for a while and as it's just a short stroll to the Barwon Heads town, you don't even have to get into the car, as you can walk to the shops and restaurants. Happy Days!
Please show them your TAWK Membership Card and support them supporting you. Check out more on the Barwon Heads Caravan Park Website here.
Beechworth Lake Sambell Caravan Park contacted us to offer TAWK Members 2 night's FREE camping* for your kids! To me, that's a park that wants to support travelling families
Beechworth is recognised as Australia’s finest historic gold-mining town, which means that you can even get some education in the mix too. All around you are reminders of the gold rush days and you'll even have the opportunity to walk in Ned Kelly's footsteps with daily walking tours available through the historic and cultural precinct. The kids can even fossick for precious stones or flakes of gold!
The park is walking distance from the town and they even offer mountain bikes, canoes and kayaks for hire. Or you can just swim and fish in the lake. One of my favourite things is: Campfires are permitted in the designated areas or the can provide movable fire-bins and firewood to allow your own personal campfire at your site. Love it!!

We contacted them and they were keen to jump on board and offer TAWK Member's 2 night's FREE* camping for their kids. Infact kids under 8 stay for free all of the time anyway, so this is just a little extension on their great deal for families anyway.

Daylesford is surrounded by rolling hills and natural spring water wells - the spa capital of Australia no less - it’s a great idea to get your map of the town and taste all the different water. The market on the weekend is lovely and the steam train on a Sunday is a highlight for kids.

As soon as Bec and Trev from Erica Caravan Park heard about the TAWK Support Program they new it was a win for their park as well as for travelling families. With a big family of their own they knew they wanted to be involved in making it cheaper for travelling families to enjoy Australia - How much did we love to hear that!
Of course it was also a fellow TAWKer that recommended the program to them AND also told us what an awesome spot it was and what a good fit they would be. Great for summer and winter too, with Mt Baw Baw close by; perfect to base yourselves and for the kids to see and enjoy snow!
Now they do have some very busy and hectic times where they may not be able to offer the discount, but us travellers tend to avoid those times anyway - so do check with park if you are intending to visit during school or public holidays. Otherwise they are keen to offer 2 nights FREE camping for TAWK Member's kids. So go support them supporting you.
Eureka Holiday Park approached us to become TAWKer Supporters and I took one look at their Facebook page and saw that they are family friendly and we thought your kids will love it here. They are also situated in the heart of the historic Eureka Stockade precinct and a perfect spot for the kids to learn about amazing story of the Australian Gold Rush.
They are a small family run Holiday Park located near the centre of Ballarat and close to all the main attractions. Next to the fascinating MADE Museum (Museum Australian Democracy), a great way to get some education into the kids as it offers interesting, interactive information on the history of the Gold Rush.

The Grampians will no doubt be on your must visit list and you MUST stay here too. There are so many reasons you and the kids will love it here!
Holiday Lifestyle Henty Bay approached us to become TAWKer Supporters! We love that. It means that they really want to support travelling families and they are very keen to do just that. They are at the Portland end of the Great Ocean Road, set on 10 acres with stunning beachfront views.
They are the only beachfront caravan park in Portland with over 500 metres of private ocean frontage and sandy beach. Great for the kids and apparently really great for fishing!
They also offer free Wi-Fi for guests and they are also fully licensed - so if you fancy a drink at 'Happy Hour' they have you covered. There is also a kiosk and games room and you can also grab a cafe style coffee! There's billiard tables, a bar and spacious lounge.
For the kids, there's a playground, and my kids favourite - and a must have at any caravan park they picked - a GIANT jumping pillow!

In our opinion you cannot get better people to run a caravan park than ex TAWKers! They know what families need and understand that by offering 2 night's free camping* for TAWK Member's kids, when you book direct, it really supports them during their travels around the country. So when you are in the area, please support Marlo Caravan Park too.
It's a great spot! Located at the mouth of the Snowy River in Victoria’s far east — and just 14km south of the historic timber town of Orbost — Marlo is a tranquil seaside resort and fishing town. There's a pub across the road, shops and the jetty and boat ramp within 200m. (The fishing is apparently amazing!) It's also really close to fantastic surf and estuary beaches, forest and wetlands. Basically a perfect spot to base yourself and explore the area.
If your have your dog with you, they are also dog friendly, let them know when you call so that they can run through the conditions with you.

You are going to love this great deal for TAWK Members!
BUT first a bit of background: The park managers here, Paul and Kirstine were talking to another TAWK Park Member manager (Lee from Ivanhoe Village Caravan Park in Kununurra) about how her park was loving the the TAWKer Supporter program! It's so good to know that as well as TAWK Members benefiting; parks are too. (I always wanted it to be a win win for both parties.) Shortly after, Kirstine contacted me and said she wanted to join up and encourage travelling families to see this gorgeous part of Victoria.

Painters Island Caravan Park is situated on 20 acres on the banks of the Ovens River and the perfect location to base yourself while you head out and explore the beautiful region that is the North East of Victoria.
You have all the natural beauty of their national parks, local wineries and the heritage rich history of areas nearby such as Glenrowan and Beechworth. Plus of course some fishing in the Owens river. Something for everyone AND they would like to offer TAWK Members 2 night's FREE camping for their kids all year round - only excluding Easter and the October Long weekend.
The park itself has a pool, indoor games room, tennis court, half a basketball course and a playground, so when you are not exploring, there is something to keep you and the kids occupied.
One of the great ways the we get new parks on board is when managers move to a different park and they bring the TAWK program with them. They understand what the TAWKer Supporter Program is and how many of the TAWK Members support parks that support them. That is what happened here with Painters Island Caravan Park and we think that is fabulous.

Riverview Family Caravan Park is the sister park to Barwon Heads Caravan Park which was suggested to us by a TAWK Member who stayed there and thought that they would be a great fit for out TAWK Supporter Program. We contacted the park and they said YES to BOTH parks jumping on board AND it gets even better, as up to 4 kids camp free with them anyway! How great is that!?
The park is gorgeous and located on the sand spit between the ocean and the river, there are sites along the Barwon River right next to the waters edge and it caters for caravans, camper trailers, tents, motorhomes & the big 5th Wheelers - so the larger RV's.
Close to the towns of Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads, it's a perfect spot to stay a while. The Bellarine Peninsula is absolutely gorgeous and combines the best that coast and country has to offer. Pop them on your must stay list, show them your TAWK Membership Card and support these two parks that are supporting you.
Many ex-TAWKers end up working in the industry that they love and become managers/owners of caravan parks and I love it when that happens. They know what it is like for travelling families and also how to make them feel welcome. They also know about the TAWK Support Program and how it's a win win for them and TAWKers. This is one such park.
Tongala Caravan Park is pet friendly, has a playground, pool and games room. It's in the Goulburn Murray region just two hours north of Melbourne, 26 kilometres from Echuca and the famous Mightly Murray River, so a great spot to base yourselves to explore the area, including Shepparton and Kyabram.
Pets are welcome by arrangement with management, so make sure you touch base before you go.
They are offering TAWK Members 2 night's free camping for your kids. Please support them supporting you.
We first heard about TosTaree Cottages from Bruce from Big Family Little Income who is great at finding awesome spots that would be great TAWK Supporters and telling us about them. He found TosTaree Cottages and thought they would be a great fit as they do not charge any extra for kids. Happy Days!
Tostaree Cottages is on a working farm and owner, Greg offers tours for those who want to see how a farm operates and is more than happy to have a yarn with you about the area. There are limited spots with power, but no water to link up to.
Bathrooms/toilets are in the 'shed', which also has the piano, pool table, ping pong, fireplace and bar. You stay in a paddock about 50m from the 'shed' and right next to the sheep's birthing paddock.
Greg is happy enough to talk you through the shearing shed and process, and even to take you on the farm buggy to have a look. Bar is open at 5 each night for a catch up amongst campers and the owners, and the occasional neighbour who pulls in for a chin wag.
Please give Greg or Vicki a call to see if there is a spot available for you on 0408 031668 or message their Facebook page and tell him TAWK sent you.
You know that the TAWKer Supporter Program is working for parks when the owners of one park, contact you to get their new park on board. That's what happened here with Wyndham Cove Caravan Park. They are owned by the same family who own Henty Bay Beachfront Holiday Park in Portland and would like to offer TAWK members 2 night's FREE camping* for their kids.
It is a family and pet friendly holiday park located within a minutes walk to the beach in Werribee South. Plus right next door is the adventure playground. It really is a great spot to base yourselves to explore Melbourne approx 25 minutes away.
