Townsville Caravan Parks

⛺️ 15 Townsville Caravan Parks, QLD (Complete Guide)

Share It!

After spending three months camping and working in Townsville, I got to know the local caravan parks and attractions fairly well.

Heading into Townsville from the north, we started out at Bluewater Park Rest Area, which is a fantastic 48-hour Free Camp about 30km north of the city.

Once it was clear that we would be stopping for work to help top up the travel funds, we hit the ground and did the rounds of all the caravan parks in Townsville. We had two days to find a base camp, which needed to be suitable for the kids and me as we’d be stuck at camp without a car during the week.

As it turns out, we spent six weeks at Discovery Parks Townsville, then another six weeks house-sitting and looking after four gorgeous dogs in Annandale, Townsville. If that’s something you might be interested in, here’s the full guide to house sitting as you travel.

Keep in mind that many caravan parks offer discounts for members, which may or may not be worth joining for you. Here’s the full list of Australian caravan park memberships to help plan your own trip.

This complete Townsville caravan parks guide covers parks for families, solo travellers, couples, over 50’s and even backpackers!

Discovery Parks, Townsville QLD
Discovery Parks Towsvnille

We spent six enjoyable weeks camping at Discovery Holiday Parks Townsville. It was great to meet some other travellers and the kids had a ball swimming in the pool day and night.

The staff were all really great and made us feel at home. We found the grounds and amenities to be nice and clean with everything we needed on hand.

You can grab a meal in the Motel Restaurant next door, which you’ll find as you check in. Plus the guys at the servo will give you a discount on their Cafe menu and fuel when you mention that you’re camping at the Townsville Discovery Park.

Discovery Parks Townsville offers both powered and unpowered sites, with some ensuite sites available. Dogs are welcome and all amenities are wheelchair accessible.

Townsville Lakes Holiday Park seems to be more popular with the grey nomad travellers, however, families are also welcome. There is a nice pool for cooling down and dogs are allowed at this park.

Coral Coast Tourist Park is a lovely green park, offering beautiful shady sites, which are very much welcome in the Townsville heat.

With a nice pool and a TV room with Foxtel, the kids will be entertained. The Kiosk is convenient for grabbing snacks, ice and refilling the gas bottles without having to leave the park.

As this park is a little smaller, it’s not Big Rig friendly, but you’re welcome to bring your dogs along.

Coconut Glen Van Park

Coconut Glen Van Park is an older caravan park with permanent residents onsite. It also sits right behind the highway and train line with a Caltex truck stop next door, which can make it a noisy park at times.

However, Coconut Glen Van Park is one of the cheaper caravan parks in Townsville, starting at $26 per night for an unpowered site. The reviews on WikiCamps for this park are mixed, so have a read and make up your own mind.

Town & Country Caravan Park

Town & Country Caravan Park, Townsville QLD

Town & Country is one of the cheapest of the Townsville caravan parks, starting at just $35 per night for a powered site. However, before you jump in and book, be sure to read the reviews on WikiCamps as they’re mostly negative.

My own personal experience isn’t overwhelmingly positive either. I popped in to look around and get a price when I was in Townsville. The lady wasn’t overly friendly and I almost got the impression that she didn’t want us to stay. Go figure. The caravan park is right next to the Showgrounds and seemed to be filled with permanents in old caravans. I decided to move on to the next one.
