Take the slow road to a warm winter

One of the benefits of living in a country as large as Australia is the seemingly endless kilometres for us to explore. If you’re lucky enough to take your time driving north along the coasts of New South Wales and Queensland this winter, you’ll find a big welcome at the Ingenia Holidays Parks along your route.

Our journey begins at Nambucca Heads on NSW’s coast, one of Australia’s most beautiful camping destinations. Stay with us at White Albatross, with its remarkable location at the headlands of Nambucca, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Nambucca River and Gordon Park Rainforest. You’ll relish a chance to stay a while, cruise the river, and enjoy the water activities available in our tidal swimming lagoon.

When you’re ready, take the A1 to Coffs Harbour, another region of gorgeous beaches and a haven for whales. (It’s also home to the Big Banana – take a photo for the grandkids!)

Your coastal route now takes in Lennox Head and Byron Bay, and we’re waiting further north, at Kingscliff. This Ingenia Holidays Park is set amongst 10 acres of peaceful subtropical gardens, close to spectacular beaches and just a short walk to scenic Tweed River.

The Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast are ahead of you now – all well-known holiday spots appealing to national and international tourists alike.

Beyond the city glitz, Noosa is one of the most sought-after beachside holiday spots in Australia. Settle into the relaxed and casual lifestyle there, exploring beachfront towns, riverside areas and the hinterland. Ingenia Holidays Noosa is minutes from Noosa National Park and Noosa Main Beach. Don’t leave too soon; stay and make friends, take advantage of the BBQ area, and make sure you see everything Noosa has to offer.

Continue to travel by charming towns like Gympie, with its historical buildings, and try your luck panning for gold in the Mary River. Then, turning toward the coast with the A1 once more, we can welcome you at Hervey Bay, famous for its water activities and whale-watching.

Our Hervey Bay holiday park sits alongside Torquay Lakes and beautiful Shelly Beach, just 400m away. If you’ve packed the fishing gear, you’ll love to stay and spend time here. Be sure to read our Top 9 things to do in Hervey Bay for even more ideas.

On the road ahead, Rockhampton offers charming historical architecture including The Rockhampton Heritage Village (and great steak, as the ‘Beef capital of Australia’). Keep your camping gear handy as you progress along the northern coastline and onto Townsville, with its popular pier and water park.

Finish this remarkable journey in Australia’s glorious sunny north, choosing Ingenia Holidays Cairns Coconut as your home base as you spend time in laidback Cairns.

Cairns Coconut is your own paradise, set in lush tropical gardens, exactly as you’d dream of in this part of the world. It has an incredible range of facilities including 18-hole golf course, gym, walk-in hot spa and garden pool, giving you a chance to stretch and exercise after your winter driving holiday.

The best thing about this route? Ingenia Holidays is with you the whole way. Put your roots down for a while and bask in these beautiful regions of Australia, at the same time enjoying the professional hospitality and quality facilities you’ll find at every Ingenia Holidays location.
