Matt and myself came to Discovery Park – Barossa Valley as we had been invited by the New Age Tribe Caravan Club to speak about Caravan Weights and Safety Checks that we have been doing with CIA VIC and what they all mean etc
The entrance into the Holiday Park is pretty as a picture with an abundance of roses you get that feeling of luxury and peace. The Barossa Valley Way is the main road through the valley connecting main towns on the valley floor of Nuriootpa, Tanunda, Rowland Flat and Lyndoch. It is notable as a major wine producing region and in fact there is a craft beer brewery right across from the Caravan Park – doesn’t get any better than that! The location is perfect - making for a nice short walk into the town.
The first thing we noticed was the tidiness and the lushness of the park, when we stepped inside we were greeted by friendly, helpful staff upon arrival – I kept looking around and thought this caravan park just had a feeling of peace and luxury which caters for families, singles, couples and the elderly.
The sites wheather you choose powered or unpowered are all covered in lush green grass and well-spaced out. There are trees to provide shade although you can find a sunny spot if you want to work on your tan!
Due to time restraints Matt and I didn’t tow our van this trip so we indulged in one of the parks cabins. The have a wide variety from Standard Cabins, Economy Cabins, Deluxe 2 Bedroom Cabins and Superior 1 Bedroom Cabins. We were lucky enough to stay in a Superior 1 Bedroom cabin which I describe as cosy accommodation with all the essentials, neat/tidy and clean so it ticked all the boxes for us including a very comfortable bed which we were very grateful to see at the end of a very long day. This cabin is a great choice for travelling singles or couples. We noticed on the way in that this park also has a Deluxe 3 Bedroom House and a Deluxe 2 Bedroom House which are also available.
The park has fantastic features such as an Activity Room, BBQ, Wi-Fi, Bouncing Pillow, Camp Kitchen, Dump Point, Hire Equipment, Playground, Kiosk/Store, A Super Fantastic Water Park (wished I was a kid again) and a new Swimming Pool area which looks like it is going to be Amazing! And for our loved ones apart from family – yes, your pets are welcome too.
A little bit about the Managers and staff, we’ll all I can say is that this couple were born to run a Caravan Park they are very friendly and have bubbly personalities, caring, well organised people and it was a pleasure to meet them. The staff were pleasant and all in all run a very efficient caravan park but the thing that stood out for Matt and Myself was that one morning they along with their staff all put on an amazing breakfast in the camp kitchen which was a delicious spread of Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Sausages, Mushrooms, Toast, Tea/Coffee – really showed the personalities of the Managers and their staff, very down to earth lovely people.
We fully recommend this Caravan Park and could talk about it for ages on end but the best thing you can do is come and see it and experience it yourself. Make sure this place is on your “must visit” list.
I hear a whisper that there are some great renovations happening for this park and some new and exciting things so stay tuned and make a date to go visit and make some memories.
