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 TAWKers: 'Children camp at least two nights FREE!!'* If you then choose to stay more than two nights you'll just pay the normal park charges. Scroll down the page to see them all.
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

We are very pleased to welcome Adelaide Caravan Park to the TAWKer Supporter Program. Offering TAWK Members 2 night's FREE camping for their kids ALL year round! Now that really is supporting travelling families!
The park is just 2km from the City, so you could very easily walk or public transport is also close by. The park is also close to the Adelaide's Botanical Gardens not to mention just one kilometre from Adelaide Zoo. It really is the perfect spot to base yourselves to explore Adelaide and all that the area has to offer.
The park itself has a kids playground and my kid's favourite, a pool - sometimes all they wanted to do it spend time relaxing at the park itself and the pool is great for those down days.
When you are heading to Adelaide, be sure to support Adelaide Caravan Park as they support you. Oh! And they are pet friendly.

When one of our TAWKing families told us about their amazing stay at Benson Park Farm Stay, I knew they needed to be on our TAWK Supporter list. The kids stay free and camping is soooo cheap anyway, that you need to support Ken and his great spot along the Sturt Highway, Waikarie in SA.
His website is all geared up for the Horse Riding Trails, but it's so much more to the Farm than that. You and the kids will love the jumping goats, the running of the sheep and be able to feed the horses and alpacas. And a highlight will be a trip to the Benson Park Sunset Bar.
There is power, toilet and showers and you'll park up in the grassy paddock and maybe even toast a marshmellow and enjoy chatting around the fire pit. Infact I recon you might just stay a while.
Make sure you ring Ken on 0431 207828 to book and tell him TAWK show him your TAWK Membership Card.
Christies Beach Tourist Park contacted us to become a TAWKer Supporter and to me, that means they really want to see travelling families stay with them. They would like to offer 2 night's FREE camping for TAWK Members kids with the only exclusions being their busy Christmas and New Year periods.
Christies Beach Tourist Park is a small, boutique style park located beside the most beautiful beach & reef, with breathtaking views of the Gulf of St Vincent. AND it's only 33 kilometres south of Adelaide, so not only is it easy to go and explore the city from here, but is also on the doorstep of the McLaren Vale wine region! Among the many attractions nearby, is Kangaroo Island. In fact there are so many things to mention here, you might be best to go check them all out on their Attractions Page.
Christies Beach Tourist Park is a dog friendly park (caravan sites only) for most of the year with only long weekends and Christmas/New Year periods excluded; just let them know when you contact them that you have your fur baby with you.

The park is also pet friendly. When you plan to explore the area, Adelaide CBD and the wonderful Barossa Valley, then please support Highway 1 Caravan and Tourist Park as they support you.

It is perfectly located so you can explore the Flinders Ranges throughout the day and come back to a cosy campsite later.
The area has tonnes of history and tours of the Flinders Ranges offer fantastic experiences to learn about the ancient seabed landscape, the outback habitats and the mining history and culture of the area - so a bit of education for the kids (and you!!) when there too.
Not only is the setting spectacular, the owners are super keen to host our travelling families with various kid-friendly activities available all year round. Also something that makes them uniquely different to other campgrounds and caravan parks; is the fact that Paula has R-12 teaching qualifications!

They would like to offer 2 night's FREE camping for TAWK Members kids. They have also won a Trip Adviser Travellers Choice Award 2021 and are pet friendly too.

There are drive through sites BUT I suggest you stay a while as there is a lot to do and see in the area, so you should make the most of it.
The park is located opposite Penong's famous Windmill Museum - great for some education for the kids - and the Nullarbor Links Hole 3 Golf Course. (Another great thing for all the family to do when crossing the Nullabor). It is also the ideal base for trips to Cactus Beach, if you have some surfers in the family, with its world class left and right-hand breaks. Jenny and Mick would be happy to chat and let you know more of what to do and see, so please support them supporting you and stay with them on your way across the Nullabor.
