Did you know that Ingenia Holidays has parks all along Australia’s East Coast?

That’s right, you’ll find us in great locations spanning the Great Ocean Road to the Great Barrier Reef, and we’ve added some great inland parks too! Come on a blog journey with us as we highlight four great road trips you can enjoy staying at Ingenia Holiday parks along the way. Let’s hit the road in Victoria.

Surf’s always up in Torquay

Where better to start than Torquay, gateway to the Great Ocean Road and popular surfing mecca. Grab your board and head to the beach for world-class surf. Our holiday park is less than a five-minute drive to popular Jan Juc Beach or gentler Torquay Beach so you can rise a little later and still catch those early morning waves with ease. Or if you prefer dry land, visit the Australian National Surfing Museum to get a taste of surfing culture.

Relax on the Bellarine Peninsula

Just half an hour up the road from Torquay, you’ll find a resort-style holiday park that’s jam-packed with activities. A destination in itself, Ingenia Holidays Queenscliff Beacon is a great spot to relax for a few days. From the indoor adventure playground and kids club to tennis and basketball courts, a fitness studio and even a day spa – this holiday park has something for everyone to enjoy. You might find it hard to tear yourself away, but it’s less than two hours from Melbourne, so you can always come back for a long weekend or mid-week escape!

Mess about on the Murray River

Next, head inland to the magnificent Murray River. It’s a four-hour drive, so set off early to allow time to stop and stretch your legs in charming regional towns along the way, or let the kids blow off some steam at the Avenel Maze. Just a few minutes off the highway, it’s themed around Ned Kelly, and home to a hedge maze, rock labyrinth and more.At journey’s end, pull in at Ingenia Holidays Murray Bend and discover a true nature escape set in 160 acres of bushland and boasting two kilometres of river frontage. There’s also a swimming pool to cool off in if you don’t fancy a dip in the river.

Lazy days on Lake Hume

Finally, it’s time to meander back and forth across the NSW-Victoria border as you travel along the Murray River to Lake Hume. It’s just over a two-hour drive and a little over half way you will find yourself deep in wine country, so it would almost be rude not to stop in at a couple of cellar doors en route. Why not try John Gehrig Wines and then perhaps Goormadda Olives to pick up some nibbles to accompany the wine when you settle in for a night or three at Ingenia Holidays Lake Hume.
