Choose a Sydney Caravan Park, camp site, tent site, campground, campervan site or motorhome site in the Sydney region

Caravan Parks were once very popular for a cheap holiday but their use has changed over the decades. Especially in cities like Sydney. Sydney is lucky to still have quality caravan parks where you can stay. If you are looking for a short stay the best caravan parks are tourist parks which usually have camp sites and camping facilities as well. These parks have limited long term residents and are specifically designed for the tourist and tourism activities.

This site is designed as an information portal primarily for the benefit of tourists and visitors from overseas but will also be a great help to anyone visiting Sydney. The objective is to provide a comprehensive list of all the caravan parks, tourist parks, camping areas, camp grounds, tent sites and places to park your camper van or motorhome overnight or for an extended stay in the Sydney region. If you have a larger motorhome or Winnebago style vehicle it's worth calling ahead to see if they can fit you in. Visit this page for Sydney caravan parks.

will range in price and facilities but are generally good value. Sydney Hills Holiday Park at Dural (North western suburbs, Hills District) is a great location as is Sydney Lakeside at Narrabeen on the Northern Beaches. These are the only caravan parks I would personally suggest. If you are in a caravan park at the moment ask some of your neighbours for a recommendation regarding a place to stay in Sydney. Caravan people are a friendly group and happy to pass on their knowledge of good caravan parks and no so good ones. If you Google 'caravan parks Sydney' you will see a list of other caravan parks around Sydney.

Using a caravan, campervan or motorhome to visit Sydney and Australia

Using a campervan or motorhome to explore New South Wales and the rest of Australia is an option being favoured by more and more people. Cost is sometimes a factor but there are other benefits as well. A caravan park is often in a very good location. Many are right on the beach, the atmosphere is relaxed and what better way than to take your home with you when you travel! Kids have a great time and usually have a lot more freedom and space than your normal motel option. A caravan park is also sometimes called a holiday park or a tourist park. These style of parks will often have a greater range of onsite entertainment. Maybe an inflatable jumping castle or table tennis tables. A good swimming pool is almost guaranteed. Even if a caravan park has permanent residents there are usually sites available if you and your caravan just want to stay a few days. If you don't own a caravan the modern range of motorhomes and campervans available from firms like Apollo and Maui can be a great option. Just some ideas for accommodation when visiting Sydney or Australia.

Camping, Campgrounds or tent sites Sydney or in the Sydney region

There are a number of very good camping areas and campgrounds within Sydney and within easy reach of Sydney. The caravan parks mentioned above all have good facilities for someone wanting to pitch a tent but if you want to get out of Sydney Glenworth Valley for camping and tent sites comes to mind and is only one hour North of Sydney. They also have a range of adventure activities like quad bikes, horse riding and abseiling. To see a range of tent or camp sites visit this page.

At the moment there aren't too many photos on the site pages (and these are mainly of Lane Cove Caravan Park) but there is a lot of very useful information and relevant links to other resources.We also have a range of resources to help your stay in Sydney the most enjoyable possible. The site is not directly affiliated with any one but your assistance in visiting the advertisers on this site will enable us to maintain and improve the site.

These resources such as reviews of caravan parks and camping grounds, distances from attractions, public transport options, places to go and see, mainstream tourist attractions, unusual things to do, suggested itineraries and generally having a great time during your stay in the beautiful city that is Sydney, can be accessed from the links within the website. Please bear in mind that this will always be a work in progress.

The number one activity to do in Sydney?

Walking without a doubt! Visit the Wildwalks website for hundreds of entertaining and varied bushwalking and hiking ideas. The city and regions surrounding Sydney abound with natural habitat and bushland. There are many areas within Sydney where you can easily escape from the hustle of too many people. Wildwalks is THE number one resource if you want to explore the natural side of Sydney and it's surrounds (My personal favourites are the harbour walks).

Follow the following link for pages about some of the caravan parks  in Sydney and the surrounding area. The main caravan parks in Sydney are Sydney Lakeside at Narabeen, Sydney Hills Holiday Park at Dural, and Lane Cove River Tourist Park at Macquarie Park. Information about Lane Cove River Tourist Caravan Park or directions on how to get there, and  the Tandara Tent, luxury camping in Sydney. The following link will take you to the Lane Cove River Tourist Caravan Park actual website. This link will take you to the National Parks NSW website  where you can search for a whole range of accommodation  within National Parks. More camping information for Sydney can be found on this page and camping tips on this page. Or independent Caravan Park reviews.

And if you are wondering where the photo in the background was taken from I was on Middle Head in Sydney Harbour. The view is looking South towards Camp Cove with Watson's Bay a bit further to the right just out of frame and around the point. The rocks on the left are the beginning of South Head. Further around to the left (out of sight) is the open ocean of the Pacific.
