Affordable Whitsundays

Mention a stay in the Whitsundays and most of us can only see the dollars signs, but if you’re willing to give camping a go, then an affordable stay is within your reach.

Set amongst expansive and beautifully landscaped gardens, BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort offers all the facilities necessary for a relaxing stay. However, a holiday on this hotspot is not just about pitching a tent and getting the BBQ started. If your budget can be stretched a little then one of the resort’s designer decorated three-bedroom condos could give luxury hotels a run for their money.

Located in Airlie Beach, exploring the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands couldn’t be easier when you make the park your base. And for those days when you don’t feel like going anywhere, grab yourself a shady spot under a tree and simply let the world go by.

And I’m not the only one to think you would be hard pushed to find a better option. Whitsunday Resort has just been awarded Australia’s Top Caravan and Tourist Park at the 2012 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards.

Prices vary depending on when you visit, but you can expect to pay around $500 for four nights in a on-bedroom apartment at this time of year.
