Dreaming of your next adventure? Perhaps it’s time to hop in a campervan and set off on a road trip.

With a vibrant tourist scene and incredible views around every bend, endless adventures await on the north and south coasts of NSW. The only thing left for you to do is choose a direction. Would you go north or south?

Drive north and discover Paradise

Water sports, rainforests, and relaxation await on the NSW North Coast. From Sydney to Kingscliff, Ingenia Holidays has conveniently located parks spread all along the north coast, so you need only pick your parks to plan your trip, then stay a few nights in each to uncover the adventures on your doorstep. Your next holiday could look a little like this:

Begin in Lake Macquarie

Less than two hours north of Sydney, pull your van into BIG4 Ingenia Holidays Lake Macquarie. Here you’ll find excellent sites and facilities just steps from the waters of Australia’s largest coastal lake. Hire kayaks and paddle from Mannering Park to Deadwoods to see the best of the lagoon. Head to Blacksmiths Beach for surfing, picnicking, and fishing off the breakwall. Then try the Sculpture Walk from Warners Bay to Eleebana.

Next stop: Nambucca Heads

Four hours north is laid-back Nambucca Heads, where you’ll find Ingenia Holidays White Albatross. If you’re looking for a perfectly positioned holiday park, this is it. Set where Nambucca River greets the ocean it overlooks the V Wall outdoor gallery. Main Beach is great for swimming and surfing or take a river cruise to see nature in all its glory. A stroll to Captain Cook’s Lookout is a must with stunning views all around.

Beautiful Byron Bay

There’s a certain vibe in Byron Bay that you have to experience for yourself. Stunning beaches, eclectic shopping, and celebrity sightings are some of its many attractions. Park your van at Ingenia Holidays Byron Bay and gorgeous Tallow Beach will be your backdrop each day, along with a throng of native wildlife. Stand at Australia’s most easterly point at Cape Byron Lighthouse, wander through the Byron Farmers Markets (held each Thursday) or explore the delightful rainforest hinterland.

Last stop: Middle Rock

On the way back, stop at Ingenia Holidays Middle Rock in lovely Port Stephens. You’ll be right on One Mile Beach, perfect for a picnic or a refreshing swim, and not far from Stockton Beach if exploring the vast sand dunes is more your speed. If you have time, visit the Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary for a final ‘wild’ adventure before heading home.

Escape South and find your serenity

The NSW South Coast offers a certain kind of magic unlike anywhere else. From beaches and bays to walks and wineries, the coast between Sydney and Eden offers a world of adventures and plenty of Ingenia Holidays locations to park your van. With multiple parks to choose from, create your own itinerary or try the one below:

Start off at Shoalhaven Heads

Less than two hours south of Sydney, begin your South Coast adventure in Shoalhaven Heads.  Ingenia Holidays Shoalhaven Heads provides exceptional facilities and an endless array of activities to keep the kids entertained. Offsite, explore Seven Mile Beach, wet a line in the Shoalhaven River, or take the ferry to Comerong Island for bushwalking, swimming, and a picnic. Got a spare afternoon? Pay a visit to some animal friends at Shoalhaven Zoo.

Next stop: Broulee

Set the GPS and head off on a two-hour drive to BIG4 Ingenia Holidays Broulee. Shark Bay and Broulee Beach are both easy strolls from the park for swimming, surfing, or beachcombing. Away from the sand, meet creatures great and small at the nearby Mogo Wildlife Park, and cap your day off with a visit to the Mogo Lolly Shop.

Explore Eden

Another two hours south lies Ingenia Holidays Eden Beachfront where gorgeous Legges Beach is literally on your doorstep. Feeling energetic? Play tennis, beach volleyball, or bounce the day away on the jumping pillow. Keen to explore? Ben Boyd National Park offers walking trails, Green Cape Lighthouse, and the historic Davidson Whaling Station. Want a little more history? The Killer Whale Museum presents fascinating tales of whales and humans.

Last stop: Ulladulla

When it’s time to head back to the city, Ulladulla is the perfect halfway spot on the journey home. Ingenia Holidays Ulladulla has you covered with great van sites, and the vibrant Ulladulla region will do the rest. Feel like making a splash? Try the Ulladulla Sea Pool, or stand-up paddle boarding on Lake Burrell. Thirsty? Cupitt’s Estate is only minutes away.
