Are you looking for somewhere to chill, hang out on the beach and maybe catch a wave during the summer holidays? It’s hard to beat Byron Bay. Whether you’re thinking of stopping off there as part of an epic road trip or making it your primary destination, you’ll definitely love the sweeping beaches and relaxed-bohemian atmosphere.
Plus, if you’re travelling by campervan, and looking for ways to save on cash, staying at a Byron Bay campervan park is the way to go – and be aware WILD CAMPING – basically staying on the side of the road – is a big NO NO in Byron Bay (police will hand out fines with a big smile). Here’s the low down on the best parks in the place.
This one has the advantage of providing direct access to the beach. It’s pretty much nestled behind the sand dunes, so those renowned Byron Bay waves are just a hop, skip and a jump away. It’s even possible to walk from your campervan to town along the sand. Facilities include a picnic area on a viewing platform overlooking the ocean; free barbecues; laundries; a children’s playground; a nearby cafe; and on-site delivery of milk, papers and bread.
First Sun is another Byron Bay campervan park that offers beachfront beauty. There are stunning views of The Wreck Beach, the Byron Bay lighthouse and Mt Warning, plus, like Clarkes Beach Holiday Park, it’s really close to town. Facilities are extensive and include free barbecues; well-equipped camp kitchens; covered picnic tables; a shop selling ice, drinks and snacks; a coin-operated laundry; free wireless broadband and night security.
Are you a fan of live music? Have you ever made it to Byron Bay’s famous Bluesfest or Splendour in the Grass? Belongil Fields is the original home of both! Now, the 57 acres of lush pastures are dedicated to tents, campervans and cabins. There’s enough space to enable plenty of privacy, and, if you have a dog, you’re welcome to take him or her along. Facilities include clean, spacious amenities blocks; coin-operated laundries; and undercover BBQ areas with stainless steel sinks (and hot water!), which are lit up at night. Note that it’s a couple of kilometres out of town.
Also situated about two kilometres out is the Byron Bay Tourist Village, known for its tranquility, which can be nice during summer, when the town centre gets pretty hectic. There’s a swimming pool; tennis court; camp kitchen; barbecues; shaded picnic tables; a laundry; and wireless internet.
This peaceful sanctuary is well-situation in the heart of Byron Bay, but is low on commotion and noise. Located about a 10-minute walk away from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay itself, on the stunning Clarkes Beach. This park is fully facilitated with powered campsites, hot showers, kitchen amenities, washing and drying machines and more.
Glen Villa Resort is the perfect caravan park and camping ground for those who like to be close to all the action, located just a few minutes walk from everything that’s awesome about Byron Bay. With private tropical gardens, lush saltwater pool and a relaxed, and sunny atmosphere, you’ll feel miles away from the chaos of town.
