Caravanning, it’s a way of life – it’s a lifestyle that allows you to get up and get out to explore this magical country of ours. With so many places to explore – many within a couple hours drive of most regional centres – a weekend getaway with a caravan is becoming increasingly popular.
On our little adventure to the Brisbane Valley, we first stopped in to one mighty delightful caravan Park – the NRMA Lake Somerset Holiday Park – a great getaway not too far from Kilcoy, north of Brisbane.
Being on the banks of the Somerset, there’s so many things to do here – fishing for bass, sure thing – they caught the world record for it here recently, tick. Kayaking – take a leisurely paddle out to the middle of the Lake and take in the bloody fantastic views. Or how about just kicking back in one of the great accommodation options – cabins, freeform camping or relaxing at a powered site.
Only an hour north/west of Brisbane, the region is also known as the Valley of the Lakes, with Lake Wivenhoe (two and a half times the size of Sydney Harbour) and Lake Somerset only a short drive from the Caravan Park, providing for all manner of water related activities.
The caravan park is located away from the highway in a quiet and peaceful parkland setting. Boasting mountain views, a creek boundary, animal and bird life. Situated within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. They offer large powered and unpowered camping sites and budget self-contained park cabins with or without ensuites.
One of the biggest attractions to Esk is the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. Conveniently located right next to the Esk Caravan park, it’s a 161km trail that links Ipswich to Yarraman. The former trail line is now a magnet for hikers, bikers and horseriders.
All the leading brands and latest models of new caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers, tent trailers, fifth wheelers and other recreational products and accessories will be showcased at this official industry event as well as a wide range of products to suit all budgets ranging from simple tent trailers right up to the slide out motorhome and fifth wheelers. Plus there will be plenty of Queensland tourism information to help you plan your next great adventure just in time for the Christmas Holiday Season. Whether you are looking at purchasing a recreational vehicle or just looking for that last minute accessory before you start your journey, this event has it all and more.
