Caravan Parks: There We Love, Three We Long For
With caravan parks in almost inexhaustible supply, don’t bag yourself a doozy – add these parks to your must-see list!
1 We Love Nitmiluk Caravan Park, Katherine, NT
Katherine is one of the most beautiful parts of Australia, and what better way to experience it than staying in the heart of the Nitmiluk National Park itself. Nitmiluk Caravan Park has a range of powered and unpowered caravan sites depending on your needs or preference. Complete with resort-style swimming pool and poolside bar and bistro, you could almost be tempted to never leave the park. However, there is plenty to see and do beyond its boundaries, with a range of tours and attractions on offer via the associated Nitmiluk Tours.
