Caravanning During the Christmas Holidays

As the temperature rises and decorations go up, one thing is certain: Christmas is just around the corner. And with Christmas, comes the annual family holiday. This year, why not try something different and see the beautiful scenery our country has to offer? Here are some tips for a truly memorable Christmas caravanning trip these summer holidays.

#1 Pack early

Christmas is a hectic time, being prepared well in advance can help to avoid last-minute headaches. We recommend making a detailed list of everything your family will need (i.e. clothes, food, entertainment, etc.) a few weeks ahead of time. Early preparation also gives you time to make sure your caravanning equipment is in working order – don’t forget to check those brake lights!

#2 Research fuel prices

Fuel is an essential part of any caravan trip but can be costly when travelling long distances. As prices continue to fluctuate, check fuel price apps to ensure you are getting value for money. These apps will highlight the best prices for the suburbs you’re travelling through, and the best times to fill up.

#3 Book accommodation in advance

From breathtaking beaches to stunning lakes, Australia’s waterfront locations are some of the most popular caravanning destinations. Unsurprisingly, caravan parks tend to book up quickly, especially during the Christmas break. So, to secure a spot at your dream destination, secure your accommodation early. Due to growing popularity, Christmas bookings at most caravan parks and campgrounds open approximately three months in advance.

#4 Arrive early

Caravanning in Australia has increased in popularity over the last few years. After all, it’s the ideal way to get away from the crowds and enjoy the beauty of our wonderful country. To avoid the rush, give yourself some extra time to arrive and return home. This way, you can enjoy every moment of your Christmas break with your family.

#5 Buy practical gifts

For a lot of people, devices have taken over many aspects of our lives, adults and children alike. So, as the kids get older, the idea of a family Christmas caravanning trip becomes less appealing. Renew their enthusiasm for the open road by giving them Christmas gifts they can use on the trip. From kayaks, snorkels, fishing rods and more, these gifts will ensure your family remember this Christmas for a lifetime.
