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

A Maze 'N Things Holiday Park

I think the kids will particularly like this one!  Set adjacent to the A Maze 'N Things theme park and in a spacious bush setting and just across the road from a Koala Conservation Center, what is there not to like!?  Of course Phillip Island is known for Penguins and the park is close to the Penguin Parade too.

They contacted us to become TAWK Members and are keen to offer you 2 night's Free Camping* for TAWK Members kids.

The holiday park can offer guests 20% discount to the theme park which is based on mazes, games, puzzles, and optical illusions, so a bit of education for the kids too PLUS 25% discount to the local chocolate factory!

Not only does the park welcome you, but it is also dog friendly on the caravan sites.  Please support them supporting you.

*Offer not available school and public holiday periods or significant local events, please contact park for more details.

Anchor Belle Holiday Park

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.

*Offer may not be available during busy school and public holiday periods and does have minimum nights stay at these times - check with park for details.

Apex RiverBeach Holiday Park - Mildura  

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

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.

Bushman's Rest Caravan Park - Sturt Highway

This is another great family friendly caravan park that one of our TAWKing Families suggested would be a great fit for the TAWKer Supporter Program.  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.

You'll find Bushman's Rest Caravan park along the Sturt Highway in the small thriving community of Cullulleraine, between Mildura and Renmark.  There's the gorgeous lake to enjoy where the park encourage you to make the most of it with plenty of activities for the kids. Your kids will love swimming in the lake or just splashing around on the the forshore in the freshwater and  the sunsets are just beautiful.

Show them your TAWK Membership Card and support them supporting you. Visit the Bushman's Caravan Park Website here for more info.

Daylesford Holiday Park

When TAWKers suggest a park to us, we know we are onto a winner.  AND we certainly won here!  The owners have two children and love to travel when they can too.  You know what that means;  They understand what TAWKers need and will welcome you to their great parks - YES they have two! 

The other is Lakes and Craters Holiday Park in Camperdown - so not too far away. They offer reciprocal savings, therefore you could take advantage of the TAWK Supporter program at both!

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. The holiday park has a great playground which is overlooked by the camp kitchen and is a handy spot to watch the kids play whilst cooking dinner.  

Daylesford Holiday Park is dog - friendly too.  Pop them on your radar when in Victoria and support them supporting TAWK Members with 2 nights FREE camping* for your kids.

The park is nestled along the edge of the gorgeous Eildon Pondage waterway, and surrounded by beautiful bushland with the mountains of the Victorian high country nearby!  A perfect spot to base yourself and explore this beautiful area and so much to do at the camp site too.

Erica Caravan Park nr Mt Baw Baw

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

Eureka Holiday Park approached us to become TAWKer Supporters and I took one look at their Facebook page and knew that they are family friendly and your kids will love it here.  They are also situatied 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.

Bonus as they are also next to the Eureka Stockade Swimming Pool and Water Park complex which is open from November to April and FREE to all our guests. Happy Days!

So please support them supporting you, with 2 nights free camping for TAWK Members kids*.  Grab your TAWK Membership Card here.

Glenrowan Tourist and Caravan Park

Glenrowan Tourist and Caravan Park found out about the TAWKer Supporter Program from one of our travelling families.  They contacted us and wanted to know how they could be involved.  To me, that speak volumes about a park that truly welcomes families and we love that!  

The park  is located just 2 kilometres from the township of Glenrowan, is at the base of Mt Glenrowan which is part of the Warby Ovens Park. Now here's where it takes that extra step of interest: Mt Glenrowan was a base for the bush ranger Ned Kelly and the town of Glenrowan being the home of Ned Kelly's last stand!  Sooo much history here for the kids to learn about, not just from in books but to actually visit some of the historic places when Ned Kelly frequented!

They also have a pool and that was my kids only request when choosing a park! Sometimes they just wanted to be kids and splash for a bit!   Glenrowan Tourist and Caravan Park are also a pet friendly park and allow camp fires in the winter - another thing my kids love, is sitting around a camp fire.

The wonderful bushland setting here attracts an abundance of wildlife and it's the perfect spot to observe and enjoy and of course to explore the local area.

So grab your TAWK Membership Card and when in the area, make sure you support them supporting you with 2 night's FREE camping* for your kids.

Grampians Edge Caravan Park

Grampians Edge Caravan Park was recommended to us by a TAWKing Family who loved their stay there.  We approached the park, told them about the TAWK Support Program and how they could help travelling families and they were keen!  Steve and Jen have a young family themselves and so they are not only a perfect fit for the program but love sitting round the campfire sharing stories with you too!

I love the fact that you can have your own campfire as I know my kids just love roasting marshmallows and spending that time sitting round the fire reflecting on the day.  As well as individual fire pits there are communal ones too and the perfect opportunity to share your travels with like minded people and hopefully the kids get a chance to meet other kids too.

So grab your TAWK Membership Card and get 2 night's free camping* for your kids.

Mingling Waters Caravan Park - Nowa Nowa

Ex TAWKer's Kristen and partner Sam loved their time on the road and decided to buy The Mingling Waters Caravan Park.  They know all about TAWKing and how expensive it can be for families so wish to welcome TAWKing families to their park with FREE camping for the kids!

Just 15 minutes from Lakes Entrance, you will find Mingling Waters in Nowa Nowa. you'll experience some country camping on one of the most pristine waterways in Victoria. You can fish off the nearby jetty, and try your luck at catching: Flathead, Bream, Tailor, Mullet, Luderick, or Trevally!

Get this: Nowa Nowa enjoys the natural phenonema called the Fohn effect, resulting in higher than average temperatures in the area. There're lots of walking tracks and one of them leads from Mingling Waters to the Nowa Nowa Gorge Lookout.  It is is a 350 million year old Devonian rock formation.  On the way, you and the kids can fossick for your own gemstones in the safe waters of Boggy Creek. The park might not have all the bells and whistles of some, but the surrounds and exploring you can do in the area, sure makes up for it.  

Grab you TAWK Membership Card and show them to get your FREE camping for your kids.  You might stay a while too as there is even a Cafe with apparently the best burgers in the region!  Please support them supporting you.

TosTaree Cottages

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!

Tongala Caravan Park

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.
