There’s nothing quite like bringing your extended family together for a memorable reunion. However, finding a willing family member to host is usually met with tension and inevitable arguments. Instead of putting all the stress on one family, or trying to cram all your cousins, aunties and uncles into the one hotel, caravan parks are ideal for family-friendly holidays.
With clever planning, you can make sure your family reunion runs smoothly (and avoid those tearing-your-hair-out incidents!).
More often than not, it’s the Aussie way to say “No worries mate, she’ll be right,” and put off any planning until the last minute. This carefree attitude is great for a day out fishing, but planning a big family event? Not so much. To avoid disaster, be sure to organise everything well in advance.
Planning a perfect event can be tricky, but getting input from your extended family is a good place to start. To ensure all the important details are taken care of, consider these logistics when hosting a family reunion at a holiday park:
- Booking – Avoid missing out on your preferred destination by making your reservation with plenty of time to spare
- The guest list – Make sure you know who’s RSVP’d so you can reserve the right number of beds
- Budgeting – Family reunions don’t have to cost a lot, but it’s still important to create a budget to keep expenses under control.
